Short-Term Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation that Utilizes a Team Approach

Barclay Friends offers short term rehab, also considered short term nursing care or post-acute care, on-site through HealthPro Heritage. Short term rehab serves as a bridge between an individual’s hospital stay and return to home. Our licensed, certified physical, occupational and speech therapists utilize a team approach. They also focus on results-oriented programming to help older adults continue to enjoy active and healthy lifestyles.
