For some individuals, a stay at a facility lasts just long enough for specific rehabilitation or health assistance. Making the transition back to the community is a process we plan for very carefully.
When an individual has completed therapy at our facilities, the care team, including the individual, family members, doctors, and other care professionals, will help the individual develop goals for their continuing recovery. These goals will include ideas and assistance for the discharge process.
Our staff will make visits to the individual’s home or other intended location to help plan for discharge. They’ll check for obstacles that can cause a setback to further recovery. Individuals may get around well in our supervised environment, but many homes are not conducive to easy mobility. So we assist with the transition, tackling the challenges of stairs by recommending helpful equipment, removing or securing rugs or furniture that can lead to injury, and even offering suggestions on how the home can be arranged. The ultimate goal is to ensure an individual coming home has reduced risk and ease of movement.
We’ll also help you plan for any care at home. Registered and licensed nurses and therapy professionals can ease the transition home by providing medication assistance, education, and continuing monitoring.
With these additional steps to prepare for discharge and a future of recovery, we provide the commitment you deserve.
