Our short-term rehab services can help bridge-the-gap between the hospital and home and allow you to cultivate the necessary skills to lead an independent lifestyle.
Our short-term rehab program provides 24-hour skilled nursing care and a full range of rehabilitative services—physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. During your stay, the therapists will have you practice, perform, and perfect all the skills you need before being discharged.
Customized discharge instructions and referrals are provided to support a successful return to home— wherever the person may live. Therapists often make “home evaluations” when the destination is determined for discharge—at the person’s own home, caregiver’s home, retirement or assisted living community, or other nursing center. Recommendations for home modifications are made to ensure the ability to maintain independence safely.
