Short Term Rehab that Utilizes a Team Approach

Voted Best Nursing/Rehab in Chester County!

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 a hospital stay and an individual’s return to the home environment.  Frequently, individuals who are admitted to the hospital for at least three nights qualify for a Medicare A-covered rehab stay at a healthcare center such as Barclay Friends.  Our licensed, certified physical, occupational and speech therapists utilize a team approach and focus on results-oriented programming to help older adults continue to enjoy active and healthy lifestyles.
