PATH – Post-Acute To Home
Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America communities also offer the PATH® (Post-Acute To Home) program to meet an individual’s need for care after a hospital stay. PATH, enhanced by the power of Aegis, acts as a bridge between hospital and home by helping patients overcome the challenges of recovering from an injury, illness or surgery. A variety of specialized services, such as Freedom Through Functionality (FTF), are offered in select facilities to help individuals regain functionality, and in many cases, return to their previous lifestyles.
Under the supervision of a physician and registered nurse, patients in the PATH program receive skilled therapy and nursing services that contribute to their recovery. The team of doctors, nurses, therapists and social workers tailor individual programs to meet each patient’s personal and medical needs while also caring for the whole person. Regular family conferences are held to expedite recovery and aid in the transition to home.
PATH post-hospital rehabilitation is open to the Medicare population, with a doctor’s referral. Use our handy guide, Making Sense of Medicare, to learn more about your benefits.
