Post Acute Rehab

NeuLife Post Acute Rehabilitation

NeuLife Rehabilitation is one of the largest residential post acute rehab programs in the Southeast. NeuLife’s beautiful campus is situated on 43 acres of land in a rural, tranquil environment with 54 private patient suites is the ideal setting for patients requiring rehabilitation.


What is post acute rehabilitation?

Post acute rehab refers to a medical treatment program aimed at returning patients who have suffered severe injuries back as close as possible to their pre-injury state. The term ‘post acute’ acknowledges that the patient was previously at an acute care facility, normally a hospital. Acute injuries range from brain injuries and spine injuries to strokes and neurological disorders.

At NeuLife’s, individuals receive rehabilitation after, or in some cases instead of, a stay in an acute care hospital. Depending on the intensity of rehab the patient requires, treatment may include a stay in a post-acute rehab facility such as NeuLife to receive specialized care and rehabilitative services before returning home following an injury.


What is the difference between acute care, subacute care, and post acute care?

There are three levels of medical care available for patients who need a higher level of care and facility than what is available at home. These are: 1. Acute care; 2. Subacute care; and 3. Post acute care.

What is an acute care facility?

An acute care facility addresses life- and limb-threatening situations. Patients who need immediate and emergency medical care are treated in an acute care facility, such as hospitals.

Acute care facilities stabilize the patients until they can be transferred to a lower level of care. The length of stay varies and depends on the severity of the patient’s condition. However, compared to subacute and post acute care, a patient generally spends a shorter amount of time in an acute care facility.

What is a subacute care facility?

Patients who are stable but still need comprehensive medical care and routine monitoring can now be transferred to subacute care. They tend to spend a longer time in a subacute care facility.


What is a post acute rehabilitation center?

NeuLife rehab falls under this category. We bridge the gap between the hospital and the patient’s home. As a post acute care facility, we also continue our patients’ treatment regimen after their stay in the previous facilities.

However, the main focus of post acute care is recovery, rehabilitation, management of symptoms, restoration of independence and mobility, and reintegration to society. Depending on a patient’s medical condition, some may fully recover while others may learn to manage and live with their symptoms.

What are the benefits of residential post acute rehabilitation?

2019 comparative study, involving 99,000 stroke patients, found that those who received post acute care in an inpatient rehabilitation facility demonstrated greater functional improvement  in mobility and self care compared to those who were in a skilled nursing facility.

According to the American Medical Rehabilitation Providers Association (AMRPA), residential post-acute facilities can benefit patients in the following ways:

  • Patients enjoy a medically supervised recovery journey.

At NeuLife, our team is composed of skilled and experienced doctors, nurses, and therapists, and they guide our patients every step of the way until they are ready to go home.

  • Subsequent medical complications can be prevented.

Under our medical team’s trained clinical eye, patients are always observed for early signs of possible physical and psychological complications, and we take precautionary measures to prevent those.

  • Patients are less likely to be readmitted to the hospital.

We ensure that our patients are safe, and their regimen is strictly followed to avoid a trip back to the hospital.

  • Patients can better improve their functional skills.

Our goal is for our patients to get the best rehabilitation experience to get their lives back. And we help them relearn the skills they need to make sure this happens.

  • Patients’ independence is restored.

We help patients become adept at life skills, social skills, and independent movement through our skilled team of health professionals, rehabilitation equipment, complete amenities, and a supportive environment.

  • Patients become ready and prepared to go home sooner.

Through our medically proven and individualized rehabilitation regimen for each patient, we provide them precisely what they need to recover faster.

  • Patients are readied to reintegrate and participate in society.

At NeuLife Rehab, we know the crucial role that family interaction plays in rehabilitation. We encourage family members to visit their patients, interact with them, and show support. Once patients are ready to go home, we also give family members training and education to ensure a seamless transition.
