What are the benefits of short-term care for elderly?

Rehab at a short-term care facility boasts numerous benefits, with the main one being that short-term care provides coordination during transitions between different levels and locations of care. They also provide respite care for primary caregivers, delivering much needed relief so caregivers have a chance to recharge and continue providing the best care for their loved ones long-term.

What is the difference between short-term care and long-term care?

Following a hospital stay or injury, short-term rehab care is temporary care that has a clear outcome in mind, like helping your loved one recover and getting them back home. Short-term care usually includes services, like physical therapy, that focus on correcting or healing that specific ailment. Short-term care also includes respite care services, where primary caregivers can receive temporary relief from their caregiving responsibilities in order to take care of other needs and responsibilities, or simply to take a well-deserved break. In addition to taking care of an individual’s basic needs, most respite care services aim to engage seniors in physical, intellectual, and emotional exercises and activities to increase engagement and foster a positive connection.

While most think of long-term care as an individual living in a nursing home, it’s often much more than that. In general, long-term care is when an individual requires in-patient treatment for an extended period of time. This person moves into a care facility to better receive treatment for symptoms and improve their quality of life.
