Patients enrolled in a short-term care program reside for a shorter period where they receive nursing and therapy care to rebuild their strength and also learn how to better manage their disease or condition. Rehabilitation services provide a bridge to recovery. On-site occupational, speech, and physical therapists provide specialized programs to help residents receive the greatest possible level of independence and rehabilitation. A caring team of professionals works around-the-clock to meet each resident’s medical and personal care needs as prescribed by the resident’s own physician.
Marycrest’s Short-term Care Team includes Carmelite Sisters, physicians, nurses and therapists who assist in bringing about a quick and safe recovery.
