Hennick Bridgepoint Hospital

Medical Rehabilitation

Contact Us

Patients who have experienced a long stay in an acute care hospital due to an illness or surgery may need inpatient rehabilitation to help them regain strength and physical function. Hennick Bridgepoint’s medical rehabilitation program is designed for these patients.

The length of medical rehabilitation will vary for each patient. We work with patients and family caregivers to create a care plan tailored to each patient’s needs and goals. Inpatient rehabilitation is just one stage in recovery. We aim to help patients make the most of this time so that they can get back to their lives in the community. When they are ready to leave the hospital, patients often continue to work towards their goals in a rehabilitation program at an outpatient clinic.

When you arrive

You will meet the members of your team and start your rehabilitation soon after you arrive. Your care team will work with you to set goals for rehabilitation. Your goals could include regaining independence in tasks like getting in and out of bed, bathing or dressing. Other goals may include gaining strength and mobility so you can get back to regular activities like cooking, shopping, taking care of your home, working or hobbies.

Partners in care

Patients and family caregivers are important partners in care. You can speak with any member of your care team about anything related to your care and your recovery. You can also request a family meeting with your team any time. In a family meeting, you and your family caregiver meet with your care team. You may want to discuss your progress, your goals and the plan for when you are ready to leave the hospital.

Completing your rehabilitation program

Your care team will help you to start planning for the transition back to the community soon after you start your rehabilitation.

Some patients return to living independently in their homes, often with support from community services or a family caregiver. Other patients may need the support or care offered in assisted living, supportive housing or long-term care.

When creating your plan for leaving the hospital, you, your family caregiver and your care team will talk about:

  • When you’ll be ready to leave the hospital
  • What supports you may need to help you live in the community
  • Continuing your recovery with a program at a rehabilitation clinic
  • Connecting with your family doctor to oversee your care needs after you leave the hospital
