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.
The BIDMC Senior Health team works in close collaboration with Hebrew
SeniorLife. The facilities at Hebrew SeniorLife offer various services to
patients, including adult day health and outpatient rehabilitation
services, in addition to long-term and short-term care.
