While many seniors require long-term assisted living services to maintain their health and quality of life, others may only require skilled nursing services, therapy or rehabilitation for a brief period of time while they recover from surgery, illness or injury. Strokes, broken bones, brain injuries, cardiovascular disease and surgical recovery are all common scenarios for which short-term senior care is the ideal solution.
Benefits of Short-Term Care
Seeking short-term care at a nursing home like A.G. Rhodes that provides exceptional inpatient and outpatient care 24 hours a day, seven days a week ensures seniors receive the compassionate, individualized care they need to heal and regain their strength before returning home. In addition to speeding up the healing process, short-term care and rehabilitation will also help improve long-term recovery outcomes.
During their temporary stay at the nursing home, most senior patients undergo some form of rehabilitation to help them recover in a safe, supportive environment before returning home and reassuming their independent lifestyle.
