Rehab and Long-Term Care for Seniors

Information for Patients and Families


We understand the transition from the hospital to rehabilitation or long term care provider, such as a nursing home, can be a stressful and vulnerable time for patients and their families. Communicating with patients, families, and short- and long-term care facilities is just as important as the care we provide in the hospital. We keep the providers fully informed about the patient’s condition, provide a summary of the hospital care, make sure that the patient’s discharge medications are correct and follow-up appointments are scheduled, and that all the services are in place for a safe transition.
