Your road to recovery starts here.
Offered at Senior Care Centers’ Skilled Nursing buildings, Short-Term Care provides additional care and support for those patients who seek to regain strength and achieve their prior level of functioning following hospitalization or surgery.
Together with our medical director and specialty physicians, our team of healthcare professionals will develop an individualized plan of treatment to help our short-term residents return quickly and safely to their highest possible level of functioning. Short-term care for residents may be needed for a few days, weeks or any length of time. No matter the duration or extent of care offered, Senior Care Centers helps ensure that all assistance provided respects and honors the meaningful life of the individual.
