SHORT TERM REHABILITATION CLOSE TO HOME.

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. Our 34-bed Senior Rehab Center can accommodate 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.

SKILLED PROFESSIONALS WITH YEARS OF EXPERIENCE.

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 through our audiology and dietary services 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.

The therapy gym has recently added a complete state-of-the-art kitchen with stainless steel appliances. The kitchen simulates a patient’s natural home environment to insure that the patient is safe and ready for meal prep, cooking, and cleaning before resuming their independence, roles and responsibilities for daily living.

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.

Though a 21-to-100-day course of inpatient rehabilitation allows most patients to regain their strength and stamina, some patients are unable to improve enough to return to independent living. The family has options in such cases. For example, private pay arrangements may be considered for additional therapy, or patients may easily transfer into the Limestone Health Facility for long-term care and restorative nursing care.
