The Senior Rehab Center is designed with home-like comforts in mind. Short-term therapy patients live and recover near other patients whose individualized therapy schedules, goals for recovery and daily activities are similar. Senior Rehab can accommodate as many as 38 adults in private or semi-private rooms for short-term stays. Medicare-covered stays may be extended for up to 100 days of inpatient therapy on the recommendation of the therapy team and physician.
The entire Senior Rehab staff works as a team to assure that patients reach their full potential. All our caregivers—RNs, LPNs, and CNAs—are trained to help patients practice the lessons learned in one-on-one therapy sessions, encouraging the level of skill needed at home. Our nursing and therapists’ efforts are further supported by our audiologist and dietitian for a comprehensive approach to healing. In addition, instruction in managing common conditions—incontinence, for example—gives seniors the confidence to continue an active lifestyle. As the patient progresses toward independence, upon request a therapist may accompany the patient and his or her family members on a home visit, so that any unforeseen challenges—for example, a need for grab bars in a bathroom, or stair-climbing exercises—may be addressed during the final days of therapy. Upon request family/caregiver training is available to learn how to help patients continue therapeutic exercises after their release.
