Short Term Rehabilitation

"I lived at St. Elizabeth for 20 days. And day by day, I could feel that I was getting stronger, and more capable. I was becoming myself again. I left St. Elizabeth very grateful for the excellent care that I received, and went back to my life actually stronger in many ways than I had been in a long time!" -Virginia Mellendick, former St. Elizabeth Elder


It is very common for physicians to recommend additional rehabilitation following a hospital stay to ensure that Elders have the strength and independence needed to return home safely. The staff at St. Elizabeth view reconditioning and strengthening as vital components of achieving the highest quality of life. Rehabilitative therapy is centered around the individual needs and goals of each Elder. Strength and endurance training take place in our gym or spacious rehabilitation atrium. When the weather is nice, some of your rehabilitation may even occur in our specially designed rehabilitation courtyard allowing you to practice mobility on different gradients and textures. Activities of daily living (like bathing, cooking and laundry) are not just simulated but actually practiced in a true-to-life setting. These diverse rehabilitation experiences promote Elder confidence and ultimately independence.

The Neighborhoods at St. Elizabeth proudly offers the following services:

  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Speech Language Pathology
  • Intravenous Therapy
  • Wound Care

When an Elder has reached his or her goals and is ready to return home, our skilled Elder Advocate team will take care of all the details to ensure a seamless transition back home.
