Transitional care allows patients to receive

occupational and speech therapists in a comfortable, friendly
setting. This facility is designed to provide medical, nursing and
therapy services to patients with the express purpose of
"transitioning" them back to their prior living arrangements when

typically stay less than two weeks, depending on the patient's
progress and discharge destination. Each patient, on average, can
expect to receive one to two hours of therapy daily. Each patient
has an individually-designed care plan with input from a physician,
nursing staff, therapy team and case manager.
