Where Are Patients Admitted From?
Patients may be admitted from home or Assisted Living Facilities (ALF), doctor’s offices, community Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF), Long Term Acute Care (LTAC) or after an inpatient hospitalization.
Who Decides My Rehabilitation Plan?
Your rehabilitation plan is established by you, your family, and the Interdisciplinary Team following the evaluation period. It may be re-evaluated by you, your family, and the team weekly, bi-weekly, or on an as needed basis. You and your significant others may be asked to attend a team conference where you will be encouraged to ask questions and make suggestions about the plan for your rehabilitation.
Does Rehabilitation Involve a Set Program?
Shortly after admission, a personalized rehabilitation program will be developed for you, including an individualized 24 hr medical & nursing plan of care and a combined 3 hr per day/7 days per week therapy plan. There also will be “special events” and “outings” to the community in which your family may be invited to participate.
Can Family Be Involved?
At The Rehabilitation Center, we believe that family involvement is critical to the successful outcome for your Rehabilitation Program. We strongly recommend family participation in program events such as education, training sessions, and recreational activities. Open communication and feedback between family members and the rehabilitation team is expected and encouraged. We have the common goal of community re-entry with the highest level of independence.
