Short Stay Rehabilitation
Our Short Stay rehabilitation programs (sometimes called subacute care) are designed to help you make the quickest, most effective transition back home. It’s not just the amount of treatment, but the focus of treatment that makes the difference.
For recovery and rehabilitation from surgery or an illness, Jewish Home Lifecare’s Short Stay Rehabilitation Centers are where you come to work hard, get well and return home quickly. The key to success is how the therapy meets a patient’s needs. You’ll find experienced, compassionate professionals equipped to meet your recovery needs at our renowned campuses in the Bronx, Manhattan and Westchester.
The Right Choice
Our intensive and supportive therapy is designed for patients who are recovering from surgery, an illness or an injury and no longer need hospitalization, but require comprehensive care to prepare them to return home. Our dedicated staff of professionals encourage each patient as they build strength, independence, agility and confidence. Some of the conditions we treat include:
- Stroke or heart attack
- Hip, knee and shoulder fractures or replacements
- Major surgical procedures such as post cardiac surgery, amputation and colectomy
- Parkinson’s disease
- Effects of cancer treatments
- Other subacute care as per doctor recommendation
Individual Treatment Plans For Motivated Individuals
Jewish Home Lifecare’s Short Stay Rehabilitation Centers’ approach to rehabilitation focuses on the individual with a custom care plan that begins right at admission. It’s a positive, goal oriented approach that uses teamwork to enhance the healing process.
The Rehabilitation Care Team
Jewish Home Lifecare provides an array of specialists to monitor treatment and progress at every step. Your rehabilitation care team includes:
- On-site physicians and nursing staff, physical, occupational, and speech and audiology therapists
- Nutritionists to help recovery and promote wellness
- Professional social workers to assist with coordinating care and discharge planning
- Major medical specialists available on-site
With the patient’s approval, the team can meet family members to coordinate care and plan transition back home. The team will also maintain ongoing contact with the patient’s primary care and specialist physicians. Our programs include at least five days of individualized therapy per week to ensure that our patients get home as quickly as possible.
Discharge Planning & Heading Home
Our rehabilitation does not end when a patient goes home. The rehabilitation care team works with caregivers to ease the transition home. To make the return home smooth and effective, each therapy director supervises:
- Ordering adaptive equipment
- Training patients for ongoing rehabilitation
- Transitional home care, if needed
Medicare, Medicaid, and Private Pay options are available. Our financial administrators will work with you to identify, devise, and implement the right plan for you.
