The Bridge to Home program is for those patients needing support between the hospital, skilled nursing, rehab, and returning home.
The goal is to have your loved one released into the best setting for their sustained recuperation. Our hope is that this program will assist you, your loved one, and your family by offering this continued support and rehabilitation.
- A beautiful, home-like setting
- Secure 24 hour supervision
- One to ten week stays
- Inclusive pricing
Upon release from hospitals and rehab facilities, families struggle to provide for their loved one’s needs which cannot always be met by intermittent home health service visits. There are times, due to family members’ work schedules or because they live great distances from their loved ones, that a short stay at our facility could provide peace of mind.
