When researching short-term rehabilitation and senior care facilities, whether for yourself or an elderly loved one, it is important to know what to look for to minimize your concerns about the healing and rehabilitative process. Understanding the difference between short-term rehab and long term care is an important first step. Short-term rehab facilities are typically the place aging adults go to recover from health issues in a professional, caring environment. They can receive a variety of therapy and nursing services during their stay as they heal and make progress with the peace-of-mind of having nursing staff available to meet their needs 24-hours a day.
- Find a rehab center that can properly provide short or long term rehabilitation for seniors, as needed.
- Tour the senior care facility in advance and examine the rooms, dining area, therapy facilities, and community rooms.
- Talk to several staff members. Ask about qualifications, personalized care plans, and types of therapy provided.
- Talk to past or current residents for a more insightful view into the rehab center for seniors.
