Transition To The Community Program
The ultimate goal for a patient admitted for short term rehabilitation is to safely return home at the highest possible level of function.
Preferred Therapy Solutions “Transitions to the Community Program” is designed to accomplish just that: to get patients home safely. At the core of the program is a comprehensive evaluation by the interdisciplinary team designed to develop a customized treatment program to meet the patient’s needs and goals. Patients will receive a combination of physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and skilled nursing services. While therapy and nursing services are integral parts of a patient’s recovery, a safe return to home requires more.
In addition to the comprehensive interdisciplinary evaluations, our “Transitions to the Community Program” includes:
Patient educational modules including fall prevention, home safety, medication management and self-monitoring.
Training in the necessary daily tasks that patients may need to perform upon returning home, such as dressing, taking their medications, and preparing a light meal.
Remote or in-person home assessments.
Performing a transition to home practice day where the patient completes all of the required daily tasks under the supervision of the healthcare professionals.
Pre discharge collaboration with home-care services to ensure a smooth transition home.
