Short Term Rehabilitation
Rehabilitation at Vestal Park offers a supportive environment for people who have experienced a disabling injury or illness. Our Rehabilitation staff works with residents to regain the highest level of function and independence possible.
Our experienced, fulltime rehabilitation professionals are dedicated providers of skilled and compassionate care using state-of-the-art equipment, individually-tailored therapy programs, and motivational skills on a daily basis.
Following a thorough evaluation by our team of physicians, nurses and therapists, a treatment plan is customized to meet each patient's needs and goals. Most individuals require a combination of physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and skilled nursing care. Our interdisciplinary team approach includes incorporating meaningful daily activities into treatment plans, providing an integral link to achieving individual goals for recovery.
Prior to discharge, a home visit by our rehabilitation team may be warranted to assess home safety and to make recommendations concerning patient care. Individuals who have reached their maximum rehabilitation potential, yet are unable to safely return home, will be offered permanent residency. A rehabilitation maintenance program to sustain strength and mobility may be recommended at this time.
Our ultimate goal is to help individuals return home to a quality, productive, healthy life.
