Keeping Seniors on their Feet - Prasant Desai and Chris Burds of Ability Rehab

Oct 25, 2013

Did you know that 70% of people over the age of 65 will fall? Additionally, within the next ten years, the number of broken hips will exceed the number of surgeons to fix them? Startling, huh! Prasant Desai and Chris Burd are committed to helping reduce the number of surgeries required by keeping seniors on their feet!

After many years of experience in the healthcare industry, both these men decided to come together to create Ability Rehab. Ability Rehab LLC focuses on outpatient services providing Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy. Uniquely, Ability Rehab brings the care to the client - in independent and assisted living communities. Furthermore, their program is unique in that it isn't reactive, it's preventative!

Ability will start part establishing a baseline from clinically observable conditions using established scoring tools. Then they will develop a plan of care to address the clinical deficiencies.

The best way to get more information is to meet the principals of Ability Rehab face to face. A perfect opportunity to do this is at their Grand Opening event next Wednesday, October 30 from 11:30am to 2PM. Their new offices are at 1835 Savoy Dr., Suite 100, Atlanta, GA 30341. Call to RSVP at (678-298-9484). Check out their website at
