Short-Term Rehabilitation

Start Feeling Better, Faster With Our Short-Term Rehab Care At Adams Heritage

Have you or a loved one recently had surgery, or are you currently recovering from an injury or other medical event? After surgery, illness or injury, it is important to take the time you need to properly recover. In these cases, many patients realize they need additional care before they are ready to return to their homes. At Adams Heritage, our rehabilitation therapists help patients regain their health and independence in the shortest time possible. Adams Heritage offers skilled short-term rehabilitation for you or your loved one to focus on recovery from rehab to home.


We Get You Back to What You Love

We focus on a multidisciplinary approach consisting of nurses and physical, occupational and speech therapists. Our goal is to help patients achieve independence and a better quality of life. This type of care usually lasts a few weeks but can continue for a few months depending on the patient’s needs and recovery rate. Our team will see to your health care needs while our therapy team customizes a plan to get you back to what you love. Our therapy services are an effective and safe way to help patients regain their balance, strength, coordination and function.


How Do You Qualify for Short-Term Rehabilitation?

Our care navigator can help determine if a patient qualifies for a short-term rehab stay. Short-term rehabilitation, sometimes referred to as swing bed, is covered by Medicare and Medicaid as well as many private insurance plans. Medicare reimbursement requires a three-day qualifying stay in any critical access hospital (such as Adams Memorial Hospital) or acute care hospital prior to admission to short-term rehab or a swing bed program. If you would like to know whether you or a loved one qualifies for this program, please contact our care navigator at 260-223-7196.

Other insurance plans may allow short-term rehab (or swing bed) status, but authorization must be confirmed prior to admission. Additionally, a screening must be completely by a case manager or care navigator to assure patients are eligible to qualify.


Who is Short-Term Rehab for?

Short-term rehabilitation is ideal for a variety of patient types:

  • Recovery from major surgery, joint replacement, vascular or abdominal surgery
  • Wound care
  • Rehabilitation after a stroke
  • IV medication therapy or nutritional therapy
  • Strength improvement after illness or prolonged hospitalization
  • Need for intensive physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy
