Pre-Rehab

We understand that planning for rehab is easier when you know what to expect. That’s why we host pre-rehab events for you to get the information you need. If you prefer, you can visit us for a cup of coffee and get to know us that way too.

If you are going in for an elective surgery, like a hip or knee replacement, call us at 773-406-3223 to find out about our next pre-rehab event, schedule a tour, or pre-register so we can reserve your room.

Hospitalization

Whether your hospital stay was for a planned surgery or is the result of an unexpected event, your discharge planner will “refer” your information to us once you let them know that you have chosen Wesley Place. If you are approved under your Medicare and/or insurance benefits, our team is equipped to treat your diagnosis.

Prior to your transition, a Wesley Place Rehab team member will visit you in the hospital to address any of your questions and concerns directly.

Transition

The discharge planner will arrange for transportation from the hospital to Wesley Place usually via medicar or medivan. The hospital will also send us your doctor’s orders so we can get the necessary medication and equipment ready for you.

Rehab

Upon arrival, you will be greeted and escorted to your private room, where your immediate needs or concerns can be addressed. Within the first hour, a nurse will conduct an assessment and administer any necessary medication. If you arrive in the morning, you will start therapy that day. You’ll also meet with one of our dining team members to get to know your dietary needs.

At this point, you’ll meet with your attending physician, continue to receive therapy, nursing, and physician care. Our multi-disciplinary team creates a care plan and works with you throughout your stay to keep you comfortable and working towards your goal. We’ll communicate with your doctors to keep everyone in the loop on your progress.

Going home

We start planning for when you’re better the day you arrive and continue making plans  throughout your stay. As your discharge date approaches, our social worker will make arrangements for your arrival home by making sure you are going to get the home health or outpatient therapy you need to continue to feel better. We’ll make sure you have the proper medication and medical equipment that you need as well as provide and arrange your travel to assure you arrive home safely.

From time to time we have guests who would rather move to an assisted living, skilled nursing or supportive living community because they feel there are things they need assistance with on a more long-term basis. If this is the case after your stay, you’ll receive priority access to our other communities and services, and we’ll be there every step of the way to help make those transitions smooth.
