Short-Term Care at Thrive of Lake County

You might be asking yourself, what is short-term care and why should I choose Thrive? Well, this is your chance to find out.

Short term care is best described as when you or a loved one has had a stroke, surgery or extensive treatment for kidney, heart or respiratory conditions, they may still require rehabilitation at a skilled nursing facility following their release from the hospital. Medicare and Private Insurance will pay for skilled nursing services if a physician prescribes specialized therapies – physical and occupational therapy – medications, medical equipment and supplies, and social services, to help you meet your health goals.

At Thrive, our centers are specifically designed for these needs. It is why we think the reason to choose our care is simple.

We are at the forefront of helping patients recover and return to their lives and communities sooner and better than alternative care settings. Thrive medical rehabilitation centers are the only new, purpose-built, short-term care facilities in the marketplace.

We also partner with other care providers to ensure rehabilitative services are at their best. As part of our Thrive Back program, our interdisciplinary care team works with a representative from your current residency, to gather information. We then create therapies, based on your day-to-day physical, mental and environmental needs. Our process is all about transparency and recovery:

We help you ensure your continuity of care. Our Thrive team offers guidance on working with hospital systems and advocating for your needs to help you ensure you have everything you need to get healthy.

We communicate. Our clinical liaisons communicate with guests and families from the moment we are notified that they may need short-term rehabilitation.

We partner. You will know your discharge date within 48 hours of admittance. And, we keep you apprised throughout the stay to ensure a seamless, stress-free transition to the next level of care.

You get home faster and better. Length of stays at Thrive are, on average much shorter than a traditional skilled nursing facility at about 2 to 3 weeks. Guests experience better outcomes and a seamless transition back to home.

The bottom line is our processes – and our results – cannot be replicated.

The staff at our Lake County center are eager to help you learn more. Take a virtual tour or give us a call and let us help you get better.
