Questions to Ask Your Post-Acute Care Provider
Also known as sub-acute or transitional rehabilitation, post-acute care allows a patient to heal after an unexpected hospital stay. A comfortable setting with a compassionate team like Santé is ideal for patients who no longer need inpatient care, but aren’t ready to go home. With services to assist with pain management and wound care, post-acute care (PAC) can be critical to a full recovery.
Getting involved with the coordination of your loved one’s post-acute care is essential to allowing things to run smoothly. Just as you would build a relationship with the doctor at the hospital, we encourage you to build a relationship with your post-acute care provider. This will ensure you are getting the right kind of care.
Where will the patient be staying?
It’s important that you familiarize yourself with the post-acute care facility where your loved one will be staying. Our short-term inpatient transitional rehabilitation facilities have been designed to be an uplifting, healing environment.
The comforts of home are important during the post-acute rehabilitation process, which is why the personal suites at many of our facilities have all the amenities necessary for a restful recuperation. They even have enough room for family members to stay overnight.
What types of services do you provide?
If your loved one will need specialized care, it’s a good idea to talk to your post-acute care provider beforehand to get to know the types of services and programs they offer. At Santé, we offer a variety of health services to ensure our patients receive a compassionate continuum of care throughout their recovery.
Our specialized programs offer intensive and personalized post-acute and short-term rehabilitation specifically designed to help guests reach the best level of function for the transition to home.
Can I meet the care team?
You want to know that your loved one will feel comfortable and cared for during their rehabilitation. It doesn’t hurt to ask your provider if you can meet the people who will be caring for your loved one. At Santé, we are passionate about service, beginning with our care managers who will guide the journey and focus on treating others as we would like to be treated.
