Short stay rehab is designed to assist people who either need more intensive medical care than they could receive at home, or who have been discharged from the hospital but need additional time and support to recuperate and recover. Admission is offered to individuals with intense rehabilitation goals who have a plan for increased functioning and an anticipated discharge of 2-6 weeks. Reservations for short term stays may be made in advance when scheduling surgery or just prior to leaving the hospital. Alternatively, you can make reservations after you return home from the hospital and realize that you may need additional help.
The goal of Chestnut Park’s short stay program is to help the resident recover quickly and return home. To facilitate this recovery, Chestnut Park Rehabilitation and Nursing Center provides experienced rehabilitative care for most clinical needs including but not limited to: orthopedic, joint replacement, amputations, stroke, wound care and cardiac rehabilitation.
Our rehab team provides care under the direction of our medical staff and experienced Physical, Occupational and Speech therapists to ensure our residents reach their rehabilitative goals safely and successfully – ultimately returning home from our health care center with the greatest amount of independence.
The Medical Staff is on-site frequently. Our team includes RNs with extensive hospital experience, Wound Care RNs, experienced LPN’s, Certified Nursing Assistants, a case manager, a qualified dietician, social worker and recreational therapist.
