Subacute Care for Veterans

In some communities, for active duty servicemen and VA patients, we offer specialized subacute care from skilled medical and rehabilitation professionals in a non-institutional setting, including:

  • Patients from the Veterans Home with medically complex challenges
  • Patients waiting for an open bed at the Veterans Home, allowing them to continue to have their medical and rehabilitation needs met by experienced, caring staff
  • Short- or long-term stays and patients with complex long-term medical issues for permanent living options
  • Assisting injured soldiers in the community re-entry process through home and workplace evaluations combined with community integration to provide maximum independence and safety upon discharge
