Enriching Lives Through Our Home Again Program
Following any hospital stay due to illness, injury or an elective surgery, you can gain peace of mind by knowing that the caring staff and Rehabilitation Team at The Lodge are ready to plan for your recovery. As part of the admission process you will:
- Meet our caring and professional staff, rehabilitation specialists and nurses
- Learn about our holistic approach to healing that fosters a total approach of mind, body and spirit
- Learn about our rehabilitation therapies
If you are having elective surgery, we will assist you prior to surgery so you will understand what to expect afterward. Our admission team will assist you and your family to verify and explain your insurance benefits and what insurance information is needed. We will coordinate the details with your surgeon and physician to ensure that you receive the best care immediately by knowing your needs before you arrive. Discharge planning begins before you are admitted to ensure the shortest length of stay. This plan is developed by gathering medical information from your hospital stay and application.
