Within assisted living facilities, there may be times when older adults could benefit from rehabilitative care. Specifically, post-hospital rehab ensures that they receive the acute-level care they need to heal and get back to their regular routines following an injury or medical event.
While the length of time can vary depending on their needs, our assisted/independent living services provide consistency and a comprehensive level of care during their stay.
How We Help
Whether an older adult is in an assisted or independent living facility, once they are discharged from the hospital, they will often need additional monitoring and support. We can provide this level of care to help improve patient outcomes.
Here are some ways we can help:
Our team of physiatrists consists of medical professionals who have undergone medical school and four additional years of postdoctoral residency. They have the knowledge, skills and experience to diagnose a range of physically limiting and painful conditions.
Along with diagnosing conditions, they can provide medical interventions and prescribe medications. Because every patient is unique, they develop patient care plans tailor-made to each senior's specific needs.
Our physiatrists are committed to providing holistic treatments. Depending on the patient's needs, we can incorporate organized treatments that combine specialties ranging from speech therapy to occupational therapy. Through these treatments, we'll work alongside the care team, helping to restore strength, enhance mobility and improve overall quality of life.
To ensure the most comprehensive level of assisted living care, our physiatrists will collaborate with the patient's entire care team every step of the way. By working closely with other caregivers, physicians and even the patient's family, our team can better develop and deliver treatments that promote the best health outcomes.
Benefits to Patients
Assisted or independent living patient care offers many benefits to patients and their families. No matter if a resident is recovering from a hospital stay or has started experiencing a decline in mobility, communication skills or cognition, physiatrists can help manage their condition.
Through our service, residents will have access to reliable, consistent visits for as long as they need them. Our physiatrists can support their individual needs and help them with managing pain and regaining function.
With individualized rehabilitative care plans, residents will have a better experience and be better prepared to transition into the next step of their care, which helps decrease hospital readmissions overall.
