REHABILITATION 

SHORT TERM REHABILITATION

Our Short Term Rehabilitation (STR) unit assists patients in making the transition from acute care in a hospital to home. The goal of STR is to provide physical, occupational and speech therapies along with with psycho-social support to patients too frail to go home after a medical illness in a hospital.  There is a wide breadth of medical conditions that are cared for at Eger, but some common diagnoses include cardiac failure, COPD, complex post-operative patients, post joint replacements, infections complications including pneumonia, systemic failure such as renal failure and all causes of dementia and neurologic impairments such as Parkinson’s disease and Multiple Sclerosis.  The goal is to get patients well enough to return to their home community and continue their rehabilitative process at home.

LONG TERM CARE

Long Term Care (LTC) is also provided at Eger.  Residents in this program live at Eger, cared for by our dedicated nursing and medical staff.  Their social needs are supported by a robust recreational team and there is a network of social support given by our in-house social services staff.  The nurses and physicians work collaboratively in teams to provide seamless personalized care of myriad chronic conditions that make living at home no longer a viable option for our clients.  There is a wide breadth of medical problems and complexities that are managed on these units. There is also regular psychiatric, podiatry, wound care and dental care provided. Medical and surgical subspecialty care is provided as needed.
