Rehabilitation Therapy

Short-Term Inpatient Rehabilitation Therapy:
A short term, inpatient rehab stay, is sometimes required after a hospital stay to continue recovery from surgery, illness, stroke, or other conditions. Working with your doctor, we’ll design an individualized care plan to fit your needs, condition, age, and activity level. Our therapy team will work with you to continue your recovery, help reach your health goals, rebuild and strengthen, to get you back to your independent lifestyle,
level of fitness and activity, prior to the illness or injury, so you can return to your home, job, or a lesser level of care.

We’ll also help coordinate a seamless transition from the hospital to our facility, and back home again. Short-term stays vary from 2-4 weeks usually. If your care plan requires continued care after your short-term stay, you may opt for in-home healthcare through Mobile Nursing Services. Just let us know and we can help to set up home health care for you.
