What can I expect at Inpatient Rehab?

As soon as you arrive, a nurse or therapist on your care team will give you a tour and introduce you to the staff on the unit. You and your care partner will then have the chance to express what you need, expect and prefer.  

Your Day

  • You’ll be asked to participate in therapy sessions a minimum of three hours per day, five days per week. These therapy sessions are scheduled between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. with appropriate rest breaks and meal breaks.
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all served in the dining room.
  • Our concierge dietary team will personally assist you to plan your daily meals.

Care Partners and Visitors

Your care partners play a key role in your rehab experience. We provide formalized training for your care partners to ensure you’ll have the best support at home. They are welcome to observe and participate in therapy sessions. Also, they can join you during all meals.

Pet visitation

Your leashed and/or crated pet is permitted to visit within a designated area at the Inpatient Rehab. During your pet’s visit, you are responsible for cleaning up after your pet.
