“Prehab” Classes Coming to Bethel Health Care
An informational “Prehab” class for individuals in the community who are contemplating orthopedic, spine or cardiac surgery is under development at Bethel Health Care. The purpose of the class is to assist people to make informed decisions regarding their choices for the rehabilitative phase of their recovery.
Topics to be covered will include insurance coverage criteria, preparation for the rehab stay, goals and expectations for rehabilitation and discharge planning needs and services. We have been meeting with nurses, PCTs and the rehab staff to formulate lesson plans that will not only address all of the above but also the unknowns that can lead to misunderstandings during a patient’s stay.
“Prehab” class is a collaborative effort between the Admissions Department and the Marketing group. These classes will give Bethel Health Care the opportunity to promote our excellent rehab facilities and health care team to those prospective patients considering us for rehab for the first time. It will also serve to reinforce our reputation with those who already know us and are contemplating returning to us for their rehab experience.
These classes are slated to begin soon and will be held twice per month. Classes will be held here as well as presented to various agencies and groups in the community. For more information, contact Dina Latimer, Admissions Director, at 203-830-4180 ext. 3002.
