Did you know that transitional care not only provides therapy and a team of health professionals, but it can also significantly lower hospital readmission rates? Check out how transitional care can speed up the recovery process.
Regular Physical Therapy Leads to a Faster Recovery
Transitional care plays a vital part in helping patients with regaining lost motor function after an illness, surgery, fall or other medical complications by offering regular physical therapy. Those who don’t utilize physical therapy after an injury often find that over time they lose flexibility, range of motion and strength in the affected area of their body. By engaging in physical therapy during recovery, you’re less likely to have those issues moving forward.
At the Martin Luther Campus transitional care unit, we offer physical, occupational, speech and aquatic therapy. We also have a therapy gym with up-to-date equipment and Centrex Rehab facilitates our daily group exercise program to help with maintaining the strength that residents gained in therapy.
A Team of Professionals to Help With Transitional Care
One of the benefits of transitional care is that patients can be guided by knowledgeable transitional care professionals, instead of having to figure out what works on their own. At the Martin Luther Campus transitional care unit, we have a committed team of social workers to process admission paperwork, answer questions during patient recovery and assist with services a patient may need to make a successful transition back to their home. We also have a great interdisciplinary team of therapists, doctors, nurses, social workers and a dietitian to address all areas of recovery.
A Customized Program
If your loved one goes straight home after being discharged from the hospital, he or she will probably not have a customized and unique therapy program. However, our transitional care unit provides patients with a customized program that may include extensive physical, occupational, speech or aquatic therapy. Therapy is also available as an outpatient to help with continuous improvement once they’re back home.
Transitional care can speed up recovery through targeted programs aimed at healing. Get more information about the Martin Luther Campus transitional care unit program.
