Our post-acute care services apply the latest in skilled nursing techniques to help patients regain as much of their health and independence as possible in each individual case. Let our amazing nurses help your family on the road to recovery.

What is Post-Acute Care?

A life-threatening illness or injury can result in a lengthy hospital stay. During this time, doctors and nurses attend to patients’ urgent healthcare needs and work to stabilize them. This is known as acute care.

Once patients are stable and discharged, however, they often need ongoing rehabilitation services to make an optimal recovery. This is known as post-acute care. Post-acute care includes skilled nursing services such as

  • Fracture recovery
  • Hospice and respite care
  • Medical observation
  • Pain management
  • Pharmacy services
  • Physical, speech, and occupational therapy
  • Wound care

Some patients may require a long-term stay in a post-acute care facility. Others may be served best by outpatient or in-home care. Pasadena Nursing Center offers both.

Benefits of Post-Acute Care

If your loved one has suffered a major health event requiring acute treatment, post-acute care offers them their best chance at recovery. Seniors in particular benefit from post-acute care through

  • Fewer ER visits
  • Fewer hospital readmissions
  • Less disability
  • More independence
  • Longer life

Post-acute care can also reduce an elderly patient’s need for long-term skilled nursing, making it a cost-effective option for many caregiving families.

Post-Acute Care for Stroke

Post-acute care is often prescribed for patients who have suffered a stroke. Post-acute care focuses on helping stroke survivors regain essential skills, including:

  • Mobility
  • Speech
  • Continence
  • Neurological functioning
  • Dressing, eating, and bathing

More than 50% of stroke survivors will require post-acute care to regain these essential life skills. Pasadena Nursing Center strives to help these patients recover to the best of their ability. With gentle, compassionate post-acute care, many stroke survivors can recover enough to return to their daily lives.
