After completing treatment, many residents will enter into the restorative nursing program, a “step-down” plan that helps residents to make the transition from treatment to independent living. Residents will regain muscular strength and flexibility as they relearn everyday tasks, such as tying their shoes, dressing themselves, bathing, preparing meals, making their beds and other basic skills needed to live independently before moving back home.
