After leaving the rehabilitation facility, many people consider moving to a more supportive living environment as part of the recovery process. It is the most effective way to ensure their physical recovery remains on track. The decision to move into assisted living is a wise one, in terms of both safety and care.
Focus on Care Planning
During your loved one’s stay in a short-term rehabilitation facility, you may realize that moving home isn’t the most appropriate option for keeping active and receiving appropriate care. This may come up during their “care plan meeting” or during rehabilitation.
In a “care plan meeting,” your parent’s doctors, rehab staff members, and family members discuss ongoing care needs as well as exercise and treatment goals. During this meeting, if it seems likely that transitioning to assisted living is the best option after rehabilitation, you should start making plans as soon as possible. Depending on the circumstances, an assisted living community might be the most appropriate choice. With an assisted living community, you can ensure your loved one continues to receive care, something that can be difficult to do when they’re at home. Having access to care and support 24/7 is one of the greatest advantages of moving into an assisted living community. In this case, there are healthcare professionals who are available to assist your parent with simple tasks, such as dressing, bathing, and personal hygiene.
As your parent’s time in a short-term rehab is coming to a close, you can start taking steps now to ensure transitioning to assisted living is an easy process. Moving into an assisted living community is the optimal way to continue improving their health.
