FAQ

Here are the questions that we get asked all the time. Don’t worry – we have the answers!
What is Short Term Rehab?2020-09-24T06:58:05+00:00

Short-term rehabilitation provides therapy for individuals recovering from surgery, illness, or accident. Generally, those needing short-term, in-patient rehabilitation may remain involved in their program at one of our facilities for as little as a couple of days to several weeks.

Short-term rehabilitation programs help patients achieve their maximum functional capacity and get back to their homes and community in the shortest time possible. To achieve this goal, patients receive physical, occupational, and speech therapy from our caring, highly skilled therapists. Therapists are part of a team that includes physicians, nurses, social workers and nutritionists that work with patients and family members to develop an individualized care plan.
