What is expected of you

All Transitional Care Program patients are expected to work with occupational and physical therapists to achieve the goals necessary for a safe and successful discharge home.

It is required by Medicare that patients receiving therapy be able to demonstrate significant progress toward their goals to continue to qualify for insurance coverage. Members of your health care team will work with you every day, and the entire team will meet with you and your family on a weekly basis during the rehab rounds to discuss your progress. If you do not show progress toward your goals, other arrangements, such as nursing home placement may be made for your care.
