Considerations in choosing a rehabilitation program
There is an array of issues to consider when seeking a rehabilitation program. The interdisciplinary team is a primary factor in the success of your rehabilitation.
Clients are referred to Lakeside Beikirch Care Center while they are hospitalized. Afterward, they are admitted to the program under the watchful eye of a primary care physician and the team of nurses and therapists who will administer the care.
Our interdisciplinary team then sets up a complete daily plan as well as a tentative discharge date, for each individual. Therapy is followed closely by all team members and each case is discussed to share progress once a week. At that time, changes in the treatment plan are made and all staff are notified.
Discharge planning begins at the time of admission. A representative may accompany the client or a family member to the client's home to determine potential barriers to be addressed and eliminated in order to achieve a successful return home. A barrier might be a bedroom located on a second floor. This might determine that the ability to navigate stairs safely is an important rehabilitation goal. When all goals are met by the client, he or she can then be released home, or to a lower level care facility as appropriate.
