As a patient in our short-term rehabilitation program, you will have access to:

  • A Specialized Physician – We are proud partners with Midwest Medicine Group which provides patients with a specialized physician that directs each resident’s individual plan of care and oversees treatment and who is present nearly every day of the week.
  • VitalStim Therapy – VitalStim certified speech-language pathologists can help aid the recovery of older adults who have trouble swallowing.

Through our physical therapy program, patients will be able to improve their balance while doing everyday activities and manage symptoms such as fatigue, nausea, and vertigo.

Who Benefits from Short-Term Rehabilitation?

Short-term rehabilitation at Abbey Senior Health meets the needs of patients who:

  • Are recovering from a serious injury, illness, or surgery (such as joint replacement, stroke, neurological conditions, brain and spinal cord injuries, or general debility)
