Does Your Loved One Need More Care After Short-term Rehabilitation? 

short-term rehabilitation

As part of the recovery process, many people decide to move into a more supportive living environment after leaving a facility for short-term rehabilitation. This is by far the most efficient and effective way to ensure their physical recovery remains on track. The decision to move into an assisted living facility is one of the smartest choices you can make in terms of the safety of the residents as well as the quality of the care they receive.

Post-Rehab Care Planning

During the course of your loved one’s stay in a short-term rehabilitation facility, you may realize that moving home is not the most appropriate option for keeping active and receiving all the care your loved one needs. There is a possibility that this will be brought up during their “care plan meeting” or during their short-term rehabilitation process.

The goal of a “care plan meeting” is to discuss with your parent’s doctors, therapy staff members, and other family members ongoing care needs as well as exercise and treatment goals. In this meeting, if it appears that transitioning to assisted living is the right course of action after rehabilitation, you should begin making plans as soon as possible. There are times when an assisted living community may be a suitable choice. The advantage of assisted living is that you can make sure your loved one keeps getting care, something that is difficult to do at home. Moving into an assisted living community means you’ll have 24/7 care and support. Healthcare professionals are on hand to help your parent with simple tasks like dressing, bathing, and hygiene.

As your parent’s short-term rehabilitation nears an end, you can begin taking steps to ensure a smooth transition to assisted living. An assisted living community is the ideal place for them to continue improving their health. The right assisted living community can make this chapter of your loved one’s life a happy and healthy one.
