Short-Term Rehab at Kirkhaven’s Anderson Transitional Care Center
Kirkhaven’s rehabilitation and transitional care programs help people reclaim their health, independence, and wellness in a supportive environment. We offer a variety of specialized services, including physical, occupational, and speech therapy, as well as restorative nursing and respite services.
Every program is personalized to meet the individual’s unique needs and goals and optimize their success, now and in the future. We focus on your care and your comfort. With around-the-clock staff to meet your care needs and address your medical concerns, we make sure you are as comfortable as possible as you recover.
Therapeutic Care and Education
In concert with our person-centered approach, you decide when you see the therapist and have therapy according to your schedule. Most therapy sessions are one-on-one with some opportunities for group exercise and rehab when clients have similar goals. Sessions allow plenty of time for discussion and patient education. Learning about healthy living, fall prevention, a healthy diet, exercise routine, and stress relief are all important to your continued recovery and success at home. Our therapists get to know you, understand your needs, and work with you to meet your goals. That is a critical component of our person-centered care. Your success is our goal!
The Kirkhaven Difference ‒ An Integrated Model of Wellness
We know you want to feel better, recover, and get back home as soon as possible. In Kirkhaven’s Anderson Transitional Care Center, our therapists have access to cutting-edge modalities to decrease pain and shorten recovery time. We use an ultrasound to apply heat to deep tissue, and we offer Game Ready cryotherapy solutions to reduce inflammation and shorten recovery time (just like professional athletes use to get back on the field.)
For pain management, our physical therapists also offer electrical stimulation or e-stim. We have TENS units (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) that block pain signals to the brain, allowing for personal pain management in the comfort of your own room. And, Kirkhaven is one of just a few rehabilitation centers that offer on-site FEES (Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing), a non-invasive assessment tool to identify challenges with swallowing.
We want you to feel comfortable and fully competent in your own care before it’s time to go home. Our individualized discharge plans focus on real-life activities such as cooking, getting into and out of the tub, navigating stairs, and more. The team meets each week to assess your progress and keep your recovery and discharge goals on track. Our Social Workers work with you and your family to create a safe and appropriate discharge plan, making sure you have the necessary equipment, home services, or outpatient therapy that you need for a successful transition to home.
