Many incidents that create the need for rehabilitation – such as a stroke, heart attack, fall or other type of accident – are events we don’t anticipate. By doing a little preventive research before you need the services of a rehabilitation facility, you may help prevent apprehension down the road. Locate which facilities are close to you and what services they provide. Take a tour if you can. Your hospital discharge planner may ask you where you’d like to go for rehabilitation. Knowing what each facility offers before you need their services will help facilitate a smooth and easy transition.
There are some surgeries that are planned in advance, such as knee and hip replacements. If you know you’re going to need the services of a skilled rehabilitation facility, review ones that will provide the services and amenities you need to fully recover. Tour several facilities before your surgery and meet with the staff. Ask questions. Choosing a rehabilitation facility before your surgery will make the move smoother. Consider reserving a room to coincide with your release from the hospital.
