Who needs short-term recovery care?
Short-term recovery patients may stay somewhere like A.G. Rhodes because they need skilled nursing services, and therapy and rehabilitation, for the duration of their recovery following surgery, an injury or illness.
There are a number of scenarios—such as a stroke, broken bone or hip surgery—in which older adults might need short-term recovery before transitioning home. A nursing home like A.G. Rhodes provides seniors with the 24/7 care they need, allowing them to stay safe while they recover their strength.
