This level of care is for those needing a short rehabilitation or nursing stay to transition back to their prior level of care or independent living. Most of the patients seeking this care have experienced surgery, a stroke, or some other sort of debilitating setback. Their physician expects them to make a recovery and return to independent living or their living situation before the incident.
The Rehabilitation Program at Rockledge Health and Rehabilitation Center is a specialized program that works with patients up to 7 days a week to help them get back home, to work, independent living or what else their goal is. We are dedicated to improving the strength, mobility, and independence of our short-term rehab guests so they can return to their daily lives as quickly as possible. The customized therapy plan may include one or more of the following therapies:
Our certified therapists will use several different techniques on different equipment that work your body, mind, and coordination. Our modern rehabilitation gym includes state-of-the-art equipment and an ADL Suite (Activities of Daily Living). We work to treat your current physical state as well as get you ready to go back home.
Often with short-term therapy there will be specific benchmarks and milestones we are looking to help you accomplish. One of the benefits of working every day is we get to see how you are progressing to help you get where you need to be. Our therapists want to get to know the whole person. This includes the activities that are important to you, both as hobbies and those necessary to daily living.
We will celebrate the milestones you make, the benchmarks you reach and the goals you achieve. Our certified therapists know how to bring out the best in each person. Schedule a visit and tour our gym to see how we can bring out the best of you or your loved one.
Once you are ready to go home, we can help with coordinating any continuing care you may need. While you may have reached the milestones your physician set for you, trauma to the body can take a while to heal.
Occasionally residents and families may choose to remain for long-term care. This is a decision that may come from deciding what is best for a patient. We are honored when a patient and their loved ones choose to call Rockledge Health and Rehabilitation Center their home and are here to provide the assistance you need.
