Senior Rehabilitation Planning Tips

Even though we are senior rehabilitation experts, there are still some things you should consider before your procedure or operation.

Your surgeon likely will recommend post-acute care to ease the transition from hospital to home and help you recover more quickly and effectively. At Walnut Place, we accept pre-registration for transitional care and would be happy to offer a tour of our post-acute care floor. We’ll also offer details about what to pack for your stay. Feel free to give us a call to discuss pre-registration.

We’re here to help you until your discharge date and beyond. From occupational therapy to physical therapy for seniors, our transitional care is designed with a healthy recovery as a top priority.
