    WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

    During the initial phase of your treatment, you may be asked to participate in a series of evaluations. It is critical that we perform a complete assessment because your treatment program will be based on the needs that are identified. We will need your complete attention and best efforts during all activities, and we will keep you informed on how we think you’re progressing.

    Most patients will receive a minimum of three hours of physical and occupational therapy each day, at least five days a week. Speech therapy and other services are provided in addition to the three hours of physical and occupational therapy. This therapy is broken up into a morning and afternoon schedule, with most therapy finished by 4:00 p.m. each day.

    Prior to your discharge, your case manager will meet with you and your family to discuss any services or equipment you may need after you leave the hospital. One of your therapists may visit your home to identify any potential hazards or necessary modifications. You will receive a follow-up call about two weeks after discharge and again at three months to discuss your concerns and to check on your progress.

    FAMILY INVOLVEMENT

    We encourage family members to be involved in your treatment by providing moral support and by observing therapy sessions. Family training can be performed to assist in the overall preparation to care for your family member at home. We may ask to have a conference with your family to talk about your goals, the progress you’ve made and your plans for discharge. A temporary pass may be granted prior to discharge in order to give you and your family an opportunity to practice new skills outside of the hospital.

    Visiting hours are from:

    8:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Monday-Friday
    10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday
    Family members also are welcome to have meals with patients for a nominal fee.

    Meal times:

    Breakfast – 7:30 a.m.
    Lunch – 12:00 p.m.
    Dinner – 5:00 p.m.

    WHAT YOU SHOULD BRING

    • Loose-fitting clothing
    • Sturdy, low-heeled shoes or sneakers
    • Undergarments/socks
    • Nightgown or pajamas
    • Robe/slippers with non-skid shoes

    • Current list of medications in properly labeled containers. For safety reasons, patients are not allowed to keep medications in their rooms.

    It is best to leave valuables (cash, jewelry) at home. A washer and dryer are available for laundry during Activities of Daily Living training. Your family is encouraged to pick up your laundry at visits.
