After a serious health crisis, injury or surgery, you may need to spend some time in a residential rehabilitation facility. Using best practices, innovative practice areas and the newest technology, our caring professional staff strive to increase patient comfort and vitality during recovery.

Following the course of care, each patient is evaluated to determine their ability to continue living alone or with loved ones. Most rehabilitation patients return to their own homes or a supported living site following recovery. Since The Cottages are so home-like, the progression from rehabilitation to home is much, much easier.

Rehabilitation services are generally covered for older adults eligible for Medicare reimbursement. The Cottages also accept patients with private insurance or the ability to pay privately.
