Education and Training
Therapy and nursing provide education and training for all medical and physical needs for patients and their caregivers. This will provide our patients with a safe and confident discharge to home. Psychological care is available to our patients and their families for coping with life-changing issues.
Preparing for Discharge
Discharge dates are established during weekly interdisciplinary team meetings facilitated by our physicians. A rehabilitation social worker will inform our patients and their caregivers on an estimated discharge date. The social worker will also assist with making equipment and service arrangements for a safe discharge.
You will have a home visit with your therapist to evaluate the need for home modifications or specialized equipment. This will help ensure that the therapy goals are appropriate and discharge will be successful.
This is an opportunity for patients to practice skills in a community setting with guidance from the therapist.
Adaptive Seating and Functional Mobility Program
Assessments are provided by a therapist and equipment technician with specialized training to make appropriate recommendations for seating, wheelchairs, scooters, and home modifications.
We encourage caregiver/family participation to provide emotional support to our patients during the rehabilitation stay. This helps prepare the patient for a successful discharge. Family lodging is available at
the Hospitality Inn (fee is on a donation basis) which is attached to the hospital.
Quality of Life Care Program
Care continues with the life-long care program after discharge. This ensures that our patients and their caregivers have the highest quality of life possible.
