Inpatient Rehabilitation

Inpatient rehabilitation is typically for people who go from the hospital to a rehabilitation center, where they’ll work with a therapy team for parts of each day, and then rest and enjoy the center’s activities for the remainder of the day.

What to Expect During an Inpatient Rehabilitation Stay

At Optalis communities, you’ll receive physical, occupational and speech therapy based on a care plan tailored to your needs by a team of experienced therapists and medical professionals.

Here’s an outline of what to expect when you stay with us:

  • An initial assessment is completed upon admission. Assessments last 30-60 minutes, while therapists discuss your level of function prior to admission and evaluate your current status.
  • A plan of care will be established centered on your personal goals and functional abilities.
  • Therapy is offered up to seven days a week, based on your individual needs and physical condition. Therapy sessions are generally 30-90 minutes in length per discipline.
  • Therapists work with an interdisciplinary team that includes your physician to monitor progress and make recommendations to maximize your recovery.
  • We recommend that you wear loose-fitting clothing that allows movement and proper footwear during therapy sessions.
  • In-home therapy assessments are available when appropriate.

Outpatient Rehabilitation

Outpatient rehabilitation is for people who need some type of physical, occupational or speech therapy but are able to and choose to live at home while traveling to a rehabilitation center to receive services.

Each Optalis community offers outpatient services and features a state-of-the-art therapy gym with top-of-the-line equipment, as well as highly skilled therapy professionals who will provide periodic program updates for your physician.

Other outpatient treatments include assistance with balance, pain, eating or swallowing difficulties; urinary incontinence; and self-care challenges with bathing or dressing. Prior to completion of outpatient rehabilitation, patients will receive a customized home exercise program to maximize function and independence. Flexible scheduling is available Monday through Friday.

Outpatient rehab requires an order from your primary care physician and insurance approval prior to scheduling. 

Assisted Living Rehab & Recovery

Five of our Optalis communities offer respite recovery suites, called Assisted Living Rehab & Recovery, to provide proactive care and rehabilitation for those transitioning from a hospital, same-day surgery center or skilled center prior to returning home. 

For a daily rate plus a level of care charge, Assisted Living Rehab & Recovery offers a comfortable, fully-furnished apartment suite alongside 24/7 nursing support and personal care assistance. 

Other program amenities include:

  • Medication management
  • On-site physical, speech and occupational therapy
  • Full dining menus with room service options
  • Help with all the activities of daily living such as bathing and dressing

Our Assisted Living Rehab & Recovery program is also a great way to determine if you would like to make one of our communities your permanent home.

Pre-Surgery Reservations

If you are considering or have scheduled surgery and would like to plan for your recovery needs, we recommend making a pre-surgery reservation at one of our Optalis Communities. This will provide you with peace of mind that you’re prepared for both your surgery and recovery.

We invite you to tour any of our seven communities, meet our rehabilitation and clinical team and ask questions about what to anticipate during your stay. Additionally, our admissions director will help verify your insurance coverage.

When you make a pre-surgery room reservation, there is no financial obligation should your surgery be canceled or postponed. Knowing what to expect and that your room and medical team will be ready and waiting for you will allow you to feel more confident and at ease as a surgical patient.
