Life at The Rehabilitation Center
On a patient's first day at The Rehabilitation Center, a customized
plan is developed to address the patient's specific needs. A typical
day includes a minimum of three hours of therapy in designated areas of
The Rehabilitation Center. Patients complete therapy sessions in their
own clothes and learn to navigate through an on-site "apartment"
filled with familiar items patients might find at home.
Family and friends are welcome to visit during a patient's stay, as
they play an important role in the patient's recovery. Please consult the
patient and visitor information for visitation guidelines. A patient's length of stay is based on
individual progress and criteria set by the insurance company. Often,
patient stays range from one to two weeks. Throughout a patient's
stay at The Rehabilitation Center at Southern Regional, the rehabilitation
team meets weekly to discuss a patient's progress.
It is important that a patient's transition from The Rehabilitation
Center back to home goes as smoothly as possible. Discharge planning begins
prior to the patient's admission and continues throughout the entire
stay. Patients are given discharge instructions and may be given individualized
educational information to successfully transition home. Family and caregivers
are strongly encouraged to participate in patient education and training
throughout the patient's stay, including a family training session
that is offered prior to discharge. The majority of all patients discharged
from the Rehab Center continue their thearpy and recovery at Southern
Regional's outpatient Rehabilitation Center.
