Short Term Rehabilitation / Outpatient Therapy
Should you find yourself or a loved one needing short-term rehab, St. Joseph is “one stop shopping.” Our full compliment of therapists takes enormous pride in assisting you through the rehab process and returning you to your home, we know that’s your goal and it’s our goal too. Sometimes we can get you home faster as we can continue to treat you through our “Outpatient therapy” clinic. We take your goals seriously, that’s why the discharge planning process begins on the day of admission. We craft your day to maximize therapy so you can get home and back to your every day life.
Coming to SJLC after a hospital stay, your goal is to return home and resume your life as quickly as possible. Our rehab staff share that objective, and we will work closely with you to achieve that goal.
We provide all rehab services under one roof. Our team of dedicated professionals represent the disciplines of Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy. Our programs address a wide variety of post-acute conditions: orthopedic, joint replacement, neurologic, cardiovascular, arthritic, and complex medical conditions.
At SJLC we take an inter-disciplinary approach to treatment, creating a customized plan of care to meet each individual’s needs.
Our bright, spacious, 900 square foot rehabilitation suite is a fully equipped gym with state of the art modalities, as well as, a full kitchen area to help our patients retrain in needed skills of meal preparation and related household tasks.
But your rehabilitation doesn’t end with in-patient services. At SJLC planning for your discharge begins on Day 1, and as you prepare to return home you might require a home evaluation to ensure that you will be able to manage safely in your home environment, determining if additional adaptive equipment might be needed to ease the transition home.
After discharge, we offer a comprehensive out-patient program under the same roof, with the skilled professionals you have come to know, either as a continuum of care, or for needed services not tied to a hospital or post-acute in-patient stay.
St. Josephs Living Center provides outpatient services as a continuum of care for our short term residents as they transition to home, or for family members, community members of anyone in need of orthopedic, post-surgical, or neurologic rehabilitation. Our large gym with a private entrance is equipped with state of the art modalities and vehicles for getting you back on track with your life, work, and recreation. Our staff of experienced PT’s, OT’s, and ST’s offer a variety of skills and a flexible schedule. We take most insurances.
We care for patients of many diagnosis including:
- Orthopedic, (joint replacement, limb fractures)
- Neurological, stroke rehabilitation, Parkinson’s disease
- Balance disorders
We have a separate entrance into our outpatient gym and ample parking.
We accept Medicare, United Health Care, Connecticare and Worker’s Compensation.
