What is Transitional and Rehabilitation Care?

While many elderly people may need senior rehabilitation care at some point, especially after a fall or a stroke, it’s not just seniors who benefit from it. Many people need this type of temporary care after an accident or surgery. Rehabilitation services at ESLC provide customized care designed to help people get well again and to return home and back to their daily activities.

While in rehab, patients also have opportunities to learn about healthy living strategies, including at-home exercises they can do to remain strong and flexible. Healthy eating and stress-relief practices are just as important to continue each patient’s path to recovery. This period of healing and transition can be a time of renewed focus on gaining and maintaining a healthier life.

Frequently Asked Questions About Transitional Care and Senior Rehabilitation

A: Most likely, a doctor or social worker will recommend Rehabilitation Care as a follow-up to a hospital stay. Many people need transitional care to regain health, strength and flexibility following a fall, illness, stroke, joint replacement or other surgery.

A: Senior rehabilitative services involve temporary inpatient care, often following a hospital stay. Rooms are private or semi-private and include a comfortable bed, bathroom, closet space, television and emergency call system. Our patients receive a full care plan, including case management and physical and occupational therapies, to help them heal and get back to daily activities. Telephone service, wireless internet, a snack bar, convenience store and other amenities are also available at most rehab centers for seniors. Family and friends are welcome to visit, but may be limited in number at each visit.

A: Patients receive a professionally designed program of care and medical supervision, with case management and 24-hour specialized nursing and aide service. Help with personal care is provided, as needed. Each day, patients receive therapies and exercises recommended for their care, to help them gain strength and flexibility, along with periods of rest and relaxation. Three healthy meals each day are available in a private dining area or in the patient’s room. Because rest and sleep are important, the rehab center also follows a daily schedule of quiet times. Once patients regain their health and strength, they may be involved in more types of physical and occupational therapies to make it easier to return home and their regular daily activities.

A: While a stay at a rehabilitation center often involves skilled nursing services, rehab is temporary, transitional care designed to get people back home. Skilled nursing, or what people often refer to as a nursing home, is where seniors and other people with chronic illness or disability live long-term. Another difference is that people in rehabilitation care also receive an after-care program of exercises and other information to help them remain healthier when they return home. Based on their health status, some people may need more than one stay at a rehab center.

A: Yes, and it’s smart to think about future needs as you decide where you or a loved one will live. Now, many senior living communities offer a full array of care and services to make it easier to transition from one type of living option to another, and most communities will offer their residents priority consideration to other levels of care when they’re needed. It’s worth considering a senior living organization that offers you or your loved one these additional levels of care and extra peace of mind when you compare your choices.
