friends care community rehabilitation one on oneOur team provides one-on-one therapy sessions to maximize independence with personalized treatment plans. Members of the rehabilitation team will evaluate a patient’s needs to develop appropriate goals and coordinate therapies to make those goals a reality. Patients benefit from regular interaction with our physicians, nurse practitioners, and other medical professionals.

For most patients that require rehabilitation, the ultimate goal is to return home as soon as possible. Upon admission, a comprehensive discharge plan is initiated to help ensure a patient’s safe and smooth transition home. Our therapy team is also available for those patients who wish to return for outpatient treatment after discharge. Continuing with the same therapists throughout the recovery process can be of substantial value.

As another piece of the discharge planning, we can also assist patients with arranging home care or therapy services after discharge, as well as any medical equipment that may be needed in the home such as walkers, wheelchairs, etc. We also offer “Home Safety Visits” with patients to assess patient function and mobility in the home environment as part of the discharge planning process.
