Who Needs Subacute Care?
Subacute care serves the needs of individuals suffering from a serious illness, injury or exacerbation of a disease. Patients who require this level of care are medically stable and do not need hospitalization but must be cared for by an interdisciplinary team of trained professionals to manage their specific condition. This team can include physicians, nurses, and other relevant disciplines such as physical and occupational therapists, dieticians, activity workers, etc.
Patients with complex care requirements such as infusion therapy, pain management, inhalation therapy & wound care as well as those recovering from strokes and other neurological disorders will benefit from subacute care. The length of stay for each patient depends on individual needs.
3 Benefits of Subacute Care
- Supports a range of patient needs: This includes patients needing rehabilitation treatment to regain their ability to carry out activities of daily life after an episode of illness. It is also beneficial for those needing to learn to manage new or changing health conditions to live as independently as possible.
- Holistic approach improves quality of life: Subacute facilities like ours, aim to improve the overall health of the patient, not just treat the illness or the injury. A skilled team of medical professionals collaborates with ailing patients and their families to create a personalized treatment and care plan. We focus on physical and emotional health to help our patients enjoy optimal quality of life.
- Cost savings: The care provided in established subacute facilities is comparable to that of hospital inpatient units but less expensive. More comfortable accommodations and a friendlier environment also put patients at ease which contribute to more positive clinical outcomes.
