What to Expect
We are here for you, and our focus is to provide you with the appropriate level of care to help you reach your maximum potential. We offer a minimum of three hours of therapy at least five days each week.
Here is what you can expect on a typical day at our hospital:
Your nurse will start your day with treatments and medication as needed. Nursing or therapy staff will assist you as needed with bathing, dressing, and toileting. Breakfast will be provided. Your meal will consist of your choices from the menu that follow the recommendation of your doctor and dietician. You will have therapy scheduled throughout the day. Your therapy schedule will be displayed in your room each evening for the following day.
Lunch will be provided, consisting of your choices from the menu that follow recommendations from your doctor and dietitian. Your nurse will administer any treatments and medications as needed. Your therapy sessions will continue into the afternoon. Your schedule can be modified as necessary to include breaks. Your nurse will continue to check on you throughout the day.
Dinner will be provided. Snacks will be available as needed later in the evening. The evening is a good time for family and friends to visit and for you to rest and prepare for the next day of therapy. Your nursing staff will assist you with bathing, changing into night-time attire and getting ready for bed.
The menu is the same for patients, staff, and visitors. The menu is posted daily in the cafe.
