short term care

The Rehabilitation Department at Dumont Center offers a wide-range of services in physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy to accommodate post-hospitalization patients for short-term rehab.

An individual plan of care for rehab is developed for every short-term or long-term resident who requires rehab. The plan of care is developed based on physician orders and Medicare guidelines. Individual goals are set by each patient’s assigned therapist. The patient’s age, medical diagnosis, physical and emotional needs, cognition, and capabilities are taken into consideration when a plan of care and goals are set.

When preparing for discharge, our social workers and therapists work with outside agencies to coordinate services that will be needed to prepare the resident for their personal living environment. These may include an evaluation of their home environment, home care, or coordination of medical services, nursing services or outpatient rehabilitation.

Our rehab department treats patients with various illnesses and diagnoses including, but not limited to, stroke, those patients who require cardiac rehab (CHF) or have had cardiac surgery, patients who have suffered a fracture, have had a knee or hip replacement, those with respiratory disease (COPD), patients who have suffered a decline in functional status in their activities of daily living, patients with Multiple Sclerosis and other neurological illnesses, patients with Alzheimer’s and Dementia, and patients who have had an amputation.

Rehab at Dumont is offered six days a week. Progress is recorded every day and evaluated weekly, and therapy plans are modified to best maximize each participant’s rehab program.
