Inpatient Rehabilitation

You have a choice when deciding on a rehabilitation center to recover from an injury, hospital stay, or surgical procedure, so it’s important to understand the level of rehabilitative care you require and the differences between acute and subacute care. Subacute care involves a less intensive course of rehabilitation than what is required for someone who has experienced a traumatic injury and requires acute, or more intensive, rehabilitation.

Our therapists have been trained in specialized programs that are based on research. With specific diagnoses and individual evaluation these programs are used to maximize the patient or resident’s participation in daily tasks and functional skills. Some of our programs include:

Dementia Pathways Program

Through this program, therapists work with specific stages and levels of Alzheimer’s and Dementia by developing individualized plans that identify the best activities and strategies to encourage self-care and daily activities. This program also provides information to the caregivers and staff to help better understand patient needs and behaviors associated with the diagnosis.

HeartWorks Program

HeartWorks is an interdisciplinary program which provides a guideline for the care and treatment of our residents with varying cardiac diagnoses, including chronic heart failure, coronary artery disease, acute myocardial infarction, postoperative coronary artery bypass grafting, and conduction abnormalities. The program provides our therapists with diagnosis-specific recommendations for each patient with the goal to improve cardiac function, cardiac health and overall quality of life.

BreathWorks Program

The BreathWorks program is designed to identify residents who may be at risk for re-hospitalization secondary to pulmonary conditions, such as COPD and pneumonia. These patients may benefit from a comprehensive pulmonary program, including education, optimization of medical therapy, exercise training, psychosocial support, controlled breathing techniques, and continuing care programs, in order to reduce the effects of acute and chronic pulmonary symptoms. Patients are evaluated and assessed using standardized testing procedures, clinical tests and measures, and patient self-reporting tools. Our therapists develop a specific and individualized plan of care that is based on the patient’s severity level, clinical signs and symptoms, and goals.

Our rehabilitation professionals work together to get you back on your feet as quickly as possible.  This includes our team of physical, occupational and speech therapists, registered dietitians, social workers, nurses, psychologists and support staff.

Patients who complete their prescribed course of rehabilitation but remain unable to return home may consider transitioning into our on-site Assisted Living or comprehensive Skilled Nursing program, assuming they meet admission requirements. This continuum-of-care option provides patients with the peace of mind that comes from knowing The Villa’s setting and staff. It also simplifies the patient’s transition, alleviating the stress of relocating to another community.
