At the Specialty Hospital at Rittenhouse, as you begin to grow stronger and prepare for the next step in your journey to recovery, our transitional rehabilitation services provide a therapy component that complements our four medical programs and focuses on increasing your overall function, strength and vitality
What to Expect
Transitional rehabilitation patients at the Specialty Hospital at Rittenhouse receive a mix of physical, occupational and speech therapies.
The duration and frequency of therapy is adjusted on a patient-by-patient basis, to accommodate each person's care plan, taking into account:
- Discharge destination
- Medical status
- Participation in daily life activities
- Progress toward functional goals
- Willingness to participate
The transitional rehabilitation program also serves as a bridge to other levels of care, such as inpatient rehabilitation or a skilled nursing facility, to outpatient therapy or home health care. Through services like our transitional rehabilitation, we are committed to work with you to help maximize your independence- one step at a time.
Who Can Benefit From Our Program
As transitional rehabilitation patients build strength they begin to tolerate more physical, occupational and speech therapy. To officially move to our transitional rehabilitation services you must be able to tolerate one hour of therapy, five days a week and have a discharge goal to go home or another level of inpatient rehabilitation.
Our patients are transitioning on the road to recovery from conditions such as:
- Brain injury
- Cardiac disease
- Major or multiple trauma
- Progressive Central Nervous System (CNS)
- Spinal cord injury
