For some major surgeries or illnesses, you may need special rehab care after you leave the hospital. Short-term rehabilitation is a step down from hospital care. It’s focused on health services and therapies that get you back to daily life at home.

Your doctor will let you know if you need short-term rehab. Then, before you leave the hospital, you should get to know your options for care. You’ll find that some facilities offer different services than others. Learn more about when you might need short-term rehab and the many ways we care for you at Signature Pointe.

When you need short-term rehabilitation

Many injuries, surgeries, and illnesses need extra care after the hospital. If you aren’t fully ready to return home, short-term rehabilitation helps you regain strength and function. Most facilities offer therapies like physical and occupational therapy. But you may receive other special types of therapy too.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine lists the following as reasons you may need rehab:

  • Brain conditions, such as brain injury or stroke
  • Major surgeries, such as orthopedic surgery
  • Injuries or trauma
  • Severe infections
  • Side effects from other treatments

How short-term rehab services care for you

Short-term rehab care should go beyond basic therapy. In other words, you want a program that fully cares for your needs. As you make your choice, it can help to compare your options on several factors. From quality ratings to special services, here are just a few ways our short-term rehab facility in Dallas, TX stands out.

Quality rehab care

CMA 5-star in Quality Measures awardQuality care helps you have a smooth healing process. We design your care around specific goals and proven methods of care. Every facility is rated on quality by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS). You view these ratings at Medicare’s Care Compare site. Because of our focus on quality care, we’ve earned a 5-star rating for “Quality Measures” from CMS.

Access to other levels of care

Short-term rehab locations may be stand-alone care providers. This means they aren’t tied to any other levels of care. On the other hand, some locations, like Signature Pointe, offer all levels of care in one place. For example, we accept Medicaid if the need arises down the road. Many seniors prefer this approach to care because it lets them age in place. It also allows for financial planning for you or your loved one as care needs change.

On-site specialists

Access to the right care team aids in your recovery. If you have specific care needs, you want a facility that is ready to meet them. We have a large therapy team with multiple specialties on-site. In addition, many of our care providers hold certifications in special areas of care. Some of our doctors include a psychologist, cardiologist, medical director, and wound care physician. We also have a nurse practitioner and wound nurse.

Amenities and support services

Care goes beyond medical therapies. You deserve a facility that cares for you as a whole person. We offer amenities and services to give you comfort and support. For instance, our beautiful courtyard gives you access to fresh air and socially distanced visits. Our patient navigator is also here to support you before and after you leave our care.

Collaboration with other providers
