What is Rehabilitation?
There are many reasons an individual may choose short-term rehabilitation at a skilled nursing facility — joint replacement, stroke recovery, wound care, heart disease are just a few.
Short-term care is designed to work as a transition between hospital and home. A team of therapists and physicians will work together to design a rehabilitation plan and recovery goals, so patients can return home safely. Depending on a patient’s condition, rehabilitation may be needed for a few days, weeks or months.
Frequently Asked Questions
Depending on your personal needs, you may be provided with Physical, Occupational, and/or Speech-Language Therapy during your stay. In your first meeting with the Registered Therapist(s), they will complete an assessment of your functional status, including testing strength, range of motion, balance, and gait for PT, and ability to complete activities of daily living with OT. They will discuss your personal goals with you, and form an individualized plan of care specifically for you.
Our goal is to rehabilitate and recuperate each individual to their most appropriate level of care. Care needs will be discussed with the interdisciplinary team and physician, as well as the resident and their families to create an individualized and comprehensive approach to recovery and wellness.
The cost of care can vary depending on the level of care needed and the setting where the care is provided. To understand the costs, you should be prepared to discuss your finances openly and in detail with the facility’s admissions staff. They will then be able to offer you guidance on payment details for Medicaid, Medicare, Managed Care/Health Insurance, and about paying privately.
