State-of-the-Art Rehabilitation Center in Huntsville
Short-term rehabilitation to help you reach new heights.
When you find yourself needing additional care after a hospital stay, our short-term rehabilitation program is the perfect place to regain your health and get back on your feet. The Joint Gym offers short-term rehabilitation therapies within Fairview skilled nursing at Redstone Village, all designed to help you heal your way back to independence. Surrounded by beautiful mountain views and a tranquil campus setting, you may easily forget you are here for therapy.
To help bridge the gap between the hospital and your residence, our short-term rehab program provides 24-hour skilled nursing care and a full range of rehabilitative services, including respiratory therapy, intravenous therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. Here, you’ll find modern services and equipment, highly-trained nurses and therapists, and a medical director – all who specialize in treating patients who have experienced:
- Joint replacements
- Circulatory problems
- Post-surgical recovery
- Re-conditioning due to illness or injury
The short-term rehabilitation program can be intense and is tailored to each individual. It helps individuals build strength and independence to achieve their maximum level of function. During your stay, the therapists will have you practice, perform and perfect all the skills you need before being discharged. A typical therapy schedule may include two or more individualized therapy sessions per day.
Following the course of care, each patient is evaluated to determine their ability to continue living alone or with some kind of assistance. Most rehabilitation patients return to their own residences following recovery.
Short-term rehab services allow you to cultivate the necessary skills to regain your independent lifestyle. Ask your orthopedist or hospital case manager to refer you to our Joint Gym by calling Redstone Village at (800) 724-5535 and asking for our admissions coordinator. You do not have to be a Life Care resident of Redstone Village to be a rehabilitation candidate or Joint Gym participant — we often can accept non-residents as patients, based on availability, and both Medicare and Tricare are accepted for your rehab stay.
