When something happens like a fall, heart attack or other emergency, the first stop is generally a hospital where the staff and physicians focus on addressing the immediate danger brought about by the event.
When the hospital has met this objective, it is often still not appropriate to send the patient home. For many illnesses or accidents, a quick recovery is unrealistic. In these cases, the injured or ill person needs short or long term care to help them prepare to return home – post-acute care.
The specific types of care needed will depend on what prompted the initial hospital stay. At McKinley HealthCare Center we look forward to being your partner in this next phase of recovery by offering:
