Niagara Rehabilitation & Nursing Center

Short Term Rehabilitation

Niagara Rehab has a comprehensive rehabilitation program that is designed to maximize clinical outcomes for those clients with complex rehabilitation needs. The specific goal is returning one as quickly and safely as possible. Our professional interdisciplinary team consists of outstand physicians, nurses, therapists and social workers. We work together with our clients to develop an individualized plan of care that meets their unique physical, emotional and social needs. However, from their admission into the facility, a team approach to discharge planning begins and continues throughout the client’s stay. When the time comes to leave NRNC, short term clients and their families have skills, assistance, and resources for a successful return to community life.N

Many of our clients come to Niagara Rehabilitation and Nursing Center with specific restorative goals that will permit them to return to the community or a lower level of care. Core services to our short-term residents are similar to those of our long term clients.

Some of our services include:

  • Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapies
  • Patient and family education
  • Home screening
  • Facilitation of home care, equipment acquisition, or alternate level of care placement

Summary of Admission Criteria:

For those patients who have experienced an acute illness or injury, NRNC is an important first step in the continuum of recovery. Clients usually remain in NRNC for a relatively short period of time – several days to several weeks, until their condition is stabilized and manageable in the home, or a predetermined treatment course is completed. NRNC’s short term program is tailored to meet each individual’s need in a professional and caring manner. Our approach is “holistic,” meaning that we coordinate treatment to meet all of an individual’s wellness needs, physical, emotional, and social needs. Working as a partner with the client, NRNC provides intensive rehabilitation services.
Clients are expected to achieve significant practical improvement by attaining those functional goals established by NRNC’s interdisciplinary team. Active participation on the part of the client is required and involvement of interested family members or friends is strongly encouraged.

Clients who would benefit from the short term restorative services at NRNC are those who:
