What to Expect as a Guest at The Rehab Cottage

Our guests can expect highly individualized attention from our care team, including our medical director and attending physicians; registered nurses; social workers; physical, occupational and speech therapists; recreational therapist; registered dietitians; a chaplain and others, as needed. This exceptional team will design a personalized care plan based on your recovery goals and will communicate regularly with your referring physician.

During your stay, your social worker will discuss progress updates and transition plans with you, such as the timeframe for coordinating your supportive transition services with Hillcrest Home Care and Hillcrest Physical Therapy. With Hillcrest’s continuum of rehab services, you are assured more consistent care along your path to recovery, which ensures greater success.

The most challenging – and rewarding – parts of your day will be your therapy sessions. Many of our rehab team members have worked with us for 10+ years and are among the most respected therapists in Nebraska, with special certifications in geriatric therapy, hand therapy, lymphedema management and other areas. Your therapists will lovingly push you to achieve your goals, and while feeling difficult at times, you’ll soon realize the rewards of your hard work as you achieve your goals and get ready for a successful transition back to the community.

Your rehab team includes:

  • Physical therapists – develop a plan with you to improve your movement focusing on joint mobility, strength, endurance and balance
  • Occupational therapists – work with you to improve your performance in daily household and personal care tasks such as bathing, dressing, cooking, laundry and driving
  • Speech therapists – involved when improvements in speech, swallowing and communication are needed
