Compassionate, Comprehensive Care
Recovery from surgery or an illness can be a lengthy process. Pain can limit your abilities, leaving you frustrated and feeling helpless. When you’re not quite ready to return home and function independently, Saint Therese Transitional Care and Ascend Rehabilitation offer a bridge between hospital and home.
Our personalized, short-term transitional care services provide 24-hour skilled nursing and rehabilitation therapy with an emphasis on accelerated recovery. Together with your medical team, we provide the level of care you need to return to your daily activities and routines at home. We help you get back to you.
Transitional care is available at Saint Therese of New Hope, Saint Therese at Oxbow Lake in Brooklyn Park, Saint Therese of Woodbury and Transitional Care by Saint Therese, located on the fourth floor of North Memorial Health Hospital in Robbinsdale.
Recover and be well with Saint Therese. Contact us to learn more.
The average length of stay for Saint Therese’s transitional care guests is typically 2 to 3 weeks.
Transitional care suites are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. However, we’ll be pleased to start your admission process once you’re hospitalized before surgery. Call: 612.322.5477.
Transitional care is typically covered by most insurances, including Medicare , but a qualifying hospital stay may be required. Contact us to learn more about various financing options specific to your recovery goals.
Ascend Rehabilitation, a division of Saint Therese, provides physical, occupational and speech therapy to address specific needs of individuals in transitional care. Prior to discharge, we offer a Safe-At-Home assessment with a comprehensive report of recommendations for equipment and services to assure a safe discharge plan. And once you’re home, Ascend Rehabilitation delivers fitness and wellness program membership and home-based services throughout the Twin Cities.
Sometimes we need just a little extra help, and that’s okay! Since we’re all unique, recovery time is different for each of us. That’s why Saint Therese has short-term respite stays available for up to four weeks. Respite guests stay in a fully furnished apartment and benefit from every amenity and convenience independent living offers. In addition, home care services may be added to guarantee you’re as comfortable as possible.
Our transitional care guests are encouraged to take advantage of everything Saint Therese has to offer! Regular Mass, ecumenical services, scheduled events and activities are just a few of the many exciting things happening every day in our communities!
