senior horse Eden

Whether it is joint replacement or recovering from a prolonged injury or illness, our skilled care partners are capable of helping you or your loved one recover. The Bent County HeathCare Center’s care partner team is always committed to restoring maximum functioning in the shortest period of time.

Who Can Benefit

Generally, individuals in need of short-term rehabilitation are medically stable and ready to achieve their rehabilitation goals within a relatively short time. Individuals are usually admitted directly from a hospital once their condition has stabilized. Focused and specialized care helps you meet your short-term wellness goals to get you back home. A typical short-term stay is approximately 2-3 weeks depending on the severity of the illness or procedure.

Treatment goals may include walking, climbing stairs independently, managing daily routines, such as bathing and dressing, transfer techniques, such as getting in and out of bed, and regaining strength and endurance.

A smooth transition from our home to patients' own home is always our goal.

Respite Care

Seeking support and maintaining one's own health are key to managing the caregiving years. Using Respite Care before you become exhausted, isolated, or overwhelmed is ideal, but just anticipating regular relief can become a lifesaver. Respite Care is also an option for individuals who want the extra security of additional assistance during an illness or while recuperating. Finding the right balance of sharing the caregiving responsibility and getting support for yourself requires persistence, patience, and preparation. Respite Care is based on space availability and the guest's ability to meet adminissions criteria.
