Top 3 Benefits of Short-Term Senior Living Rehabilitation , Northwest Travis, Texas

When your parent or loved one has an accident or health issue, getting back on their feet can be a challenge. Short-term rehabilitation that specializes in senior living or elderly care can be a priceless resource in returning your family member to good health. In Austin, TX, many families turn to The Health Care Center at Longhorn Village, a well-appointed senior and assisted living facility that offers an array of rehabilitation services for those needing short-term care.  

Why is short-term rehabilitation the best choice for your loved one? Here are three important reasons:

  • senior livingSafety: After surgery, illness, or an accident, your loved one may be discharged from the hospital, but the road to recovery could still be ahead. The skilled nursing care available at a senior living facility is the safest environment for someone in recovery. Falls are a major risk for convalescing patients, and The Health Care Center at Longhorn Village is staffed and equipped to prevent them.   
  • Comfort: Many short-term rehabilitation facilities offer amenities and activities to keep patients active and engaged throughout their stay. While hospitals can feel sterile and impersonal, a senior living facility will often offer private rooms and bathrooms, housekeeping, and gyms, all designed around the needs of its short- and long-term residents.  
  • senior livingSupport Services: In short-term rehabilitation, your loved one will have access to all of the rehabilitative specialists he or she needs under one roof.
