Transitional Care Programs and Services


Transitional Care Programs and Services

Intensive Post-Acute Rehabilitation

Individuals entering rehabilitation are always unique, but their primary objective is typically the same – a return to health, home and what’s important in life, as soon as possible. At Touchpoints Rehab we understand.

Our innovative, personalized program is designed to accelerate the recovery process, so that patients can Get Well, Live Well and Be Well, faster, better and with fewer challenges than any traditional rehabilitation program. These programs are designed to optimize therapy, promote recovery, and provide ongoing quality of life for patients experiencing chronic and high acuity medical conditions. 

What is Transitional Care?

Touchpoints Rehab is a leader in this field. Transitional Care uses a team of healthcare providers including nursing, respiratory and other staff to closely monitor a patient’s health status from setting to setting. This team will guide care from the hospital to the skilled nursing facility and into the home ensuring a smooth transition from one to the next. You will often see the same nurse or team member in the hospital, in the facility and following up after discharge to ensure success and avoid readmission to the hospital.

The Care Transitions team works with physician guidance and alongside APRNs, Physician’s Assistants and the entire staff of the skilled nursing facility. The team focuses additional focus and resources on patients with complicated medical conditions who are at risk for frequent hospital admission.

Care Transitions Team

  • Care Transitions Nurse Liaisons
  • Care Transitions Respiratory Therapist
  • Multi-disciplinary clinical team
  • Consulting physician specialists, PAs and APRNs

Addressing Frequent Hospitalizations

The program also addresses repeat hospitalizations by applying frequent lab work and assessment, integrated specialty care including pulmonary/respiratory therapy and sleep medicine, specialist consultation, clinical partnerships and more.

For patients with multiple hospitalizations the team will address their general state of health and wellness and improve their daily functionality. This will get them back home where they want to be and slow the tide of re-hospitalizations.
