We’re proud to offer a high-presence clinical model for subacute care, with licensed therapists and registered nurses on-site seven days a week. These specialists understand the challenges of recovery for post-hospital care and other types of short-term rehabilitation. They’ll design a personalized treatment plan to offer you practice in the skills needed to return to your normal lifestyle and welcome routine.

Our rehabilitation center is a welcoming setting for short-term care, including treatment by licensed therapists for:

  • Physical therapy — Regain strength and balance, increase range of motion, help prevent falls, and decrease pain. Therapeutic exercises and activities are designed to help increase muscle function, balance, coordination, endurance and mobility.
  • Occupational therapy — Based on your needs and mobility, help to safely and independently perform activities of daily living, including cooking, bathing and dressing. Learn to adapt tasks and modify the environment to regain the ability to resume normal activities.
  • Speech therapy — Treatment plans address communication problems, comprehension skills, memory loss and swallowing difficulties while working to improve language, listening, thinking and safe eating practices.

No. Our specialized senior rehabilitation and therapy services are open, on an inpatient basis, to local community individuals recovering from illness, injury or surgery through direct admission to our Health Center. We’re Medicare-certified, accept most major insurance providers, and will assist you and your family in guiding you through the administrative process.

Every person receives an individualized treatment plan, based on rehabilitation needs, physician orders and therapist recommendations. We’ll provide the most appropriate services as recommended by your therapy team after admission.

It’s similar in that it helps restore strength and mobility. However, occupational therapy focuses on helping people improve their ability to perform daily tasks by modifying the physical environment and using adaptive techniques and equipment to increase independence.

Prior to your discharge, a plan will be developed that determines any equipment needs and in-home services you may require.

The right course of occupational therapy will help seniors overcome challenges caused as the result of illness, injury, surgery — even the early stages of memory loss and dementia — and help seniors regain independence. Therapists focus on regaining independence in two main areas:: ADLs and IADLS.  Activities of daily living (ADLs) are important to being able to live independently and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) are also a marker of independence, but we don’t necessarily do them every day, however, they’re just as noticeable when it comes to the loss of functioning. Learn more about regaining independence through occupational therapy. 

Where should you go for short-term rehabilitation after a hospital discharge? The kind of care setting depends a great deal on the physical condition of the patient both before and after hospitalization, the nature of care that will be needed, and whether short-term or long-term care is more appropriate.  Answer these questions to help make the right decision for you or a loved one.
