Sub-Acute Care for Seniors


Knollwood’s Sub-Acute Care Program 

At Knollwood, we understand that medical procedures and recovery can be a difficult and stressful process for seniors. Our dedicated team of nurses, physicians, and senior care specialists go out of their way to ensure your loved one is comfortable and taken care of. We pride ourselves on our effective and compassionate sub-acute care for seniors. Our program is designed to provide your loved one with the services they need in a comfortable environment.

What Is Sub-Acute Care?

Medical procedures, illness, or other medical setbacks present a unique problem to many senior patients. Often, they require continued care for several weeks – care that cannot be provided to them in their former living arrangements. While staying at a hospital is possible, this is often a stressful and expensive experience. So what are your options when your loved one isn’t ready to return home, but you don’t want to stress them out with an extended hospital stay?

For many families, sub-acute care is the answer. This is a step between the hospital and home. It is a warmer, more homey environment than the hospital, but patients have easy access to all of the supports and rehabilitative services they will need until they are ready to return home.

Sub-Acute Care at Knollwood

No two patients have the same medical needs, so we at Knollwood work to create a customized care plan for your loved one. We provide the medical services they need in a safe and comfortable environment. Some services we provide include:

  • Occupational therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Speech therapy

Patients spend several hours a day working with trained professionals to help them through the healing process. When your loved one receives customized care from dedicated professionals, they’ll have a more comfortable and successful path to recovery, and before long they will be able to move back into their prior living situation, be it in an assisted living facility or on their own at home.

We know that you are dedicated to helping your loved one through this often difficult process, and we want to help. If you want to learn more about our sub-acute care program, fill out the contact form and someone from our team will reach out to you. We look forward to speaking with you—and to helping your loved one.
