The MacIntosh Company
Post-acute care is an ideal recovery option for patients making a transition from the hospital to home. The MacIntosh Company's post-acute care services focus on maximizing the functional abilities of patients, teaching lifestyle adjustments that promote independence and supporting them in reaching their rehabilitation goals as quickly as possible.
Rehabilitation is an essential part of the recovery process. The combined efforts of physical and occupational therapists with nursing, social services, dietary and strong medical direction from one's physician and orthopedic surgeon provide the necessary components and support for successful rehabilitation. Our program targets the individual needs, interests and potential of each patient. Family members are encouraged to participate in the rehabilitation process to help prepare for the return home.
To help speed the recovery process, therapy is offered up to six days a week. This arrangement allows patients the opportunity to receive therapy services throughout the week and weekend. Treatment plans are designed to maximize independent functioning, improve physical well being and assist in the patient's return home. In addition, The MacIntoh Company's own physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech pathologists are based in the center creating a consistency of care. That means the patients receive treatment that will be provided by the same team, creating a trust level for the patient. Patients can feel confident that their therapists are committed to helping them accomplish their goals.
Orthopedic injuries can be debilitating and painful. Patients can receive aggressive orthopedic rehabilitation in one of our 5 conveniently located MacIntosh Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Communities.
