How to Enhance Your Recovery Experience

Whether recovering from surgery or temporary illness, it’s important that you plan to recuperate in a facility that not only meets your medical needs but also provides a comfortable, nurturing setting.

What to Look For

When choosing a rehab facility, keep in mind these important factors:

Exceptional care. Your medical care comes first. You want a first-rate team of physicians, nurses and therapists helping you heal and rebuild your strength and mobility. You also want friendly and compassionate assistance with everyday tasks. As such, it’s important to learn about the qualifications and training of staff and how they interact with patients.
Comfortable, clean surroundings. You should think of the rehab facility you choose as your temporary home. It makes sense to look for a pleasant and orderly setting in which you will be comfortable. Insist on an environment that seems calm, feels comfortable and appears neat — a place that will allow you to relax and enjoy your recovery as much as possible.
Distinctive amenities. Of course, your privacy and safety are the foundation of a successful recovery. Healthy and nutritious food is also essential, and as you feel stronger, you’ll probably enjoy some activities. What do you like to do? Stroll outside? Watch TV or a see movie? Get your hair done? Look for easily accessible amenities that appeal to you.
