When you’re ready to leave the hospital but not ready to go home, short-term rehab offers care to support your recovery. With therapy and nursing care, short-term rehab facilities help you transition back to daily living. These facilities focus on therapy services such as speech, physical, and occupational therapy.
If you know you’ll need a short-term rehab stay after surgery, you can review your options ahead of time. Or, if your stay is more unexpected, the hospital may provide a list of options. In any case, you will want to ask each potential provider several questions about what you can expect.
Questions for short-term rehab facilities
It’s often helpful to take a tour of your short-term rehab options. However, in unexpected events, you may need to visit via video or phone. Whichever way you choose, use these questions to get the details you need.
Picking the best short-term rehab facility for you
You have your own unique rehab goals and health conditions. With this in mind, look for answers to your questions that will give you the support you need.
