The Advantages of Post-Acute Care

If you’ve recently been discharged from a hospital stay, but aren’t quite ready to resume life at home, post-acute care can help with your transition.

What Is Post-Acute Care?

Post-acute care is care provided for those who’ve recently been discharged from the hospital but still require acute care. This type of care eases the transition from regular hospital care to self-care at home.

Post-acute care is available at long-term hospitals, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, and skilled nursing facilities. You’ll learn to manage chronic symptoms, utilize rehabilitation services, and restore your maximum daily functions before you return home.

  • You require physical, speech, or occupational therapy or other rehabilitation services.
