Welcome to Courage Kenny Rehab. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our inpatient rehab program at Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute at Abbott Northwestern and United Hospital. One more time, Kathy. Very good. Good. Left foot. Therapy can be hard work. And every person's stay in rehab is different. We're here to help you achieve your goal. When you arrive on the rehab unit, your nurse will meet you and help move you into your room. Family members are encouraged to help you get settled in. You may have a roommate depending on the availability of private rooms. Rest assured, we respect your privacy. During a typical day at Courage Kenny, therapy begins after breakfast. An occupational therapist may come before breakfast to help you get ready for the day. You will choose your meals from the At Your Request menu. Many choices are available to accommodate your preferences and diet. We encourage you to eat in the dining area, so everyone can get to know each other better. Talk to your team. Outside food may be brought in for you as long as it supports your diet. Each day, you will have at least three hours of therapy. Your day will be busy, doing a wide range of activities. Therapy sessions are usually 30 minutes to 1 hour in length and take place throughout the day. Therapy can be hard work. You'll need to rest in between therapy appointments. There is no therapy on Sundays, but you will have some homework. It is important that family members and caregivers participate in your therapy sessions, ask questions, and learn what they need to do once you return home. We encourage family members to take extra good care of themselves during this challenging time. Family and friends are welcome to visit you. We encourage visitors to come in the evening or on Sundays when you will not be in therapy. Visiting hours are from 8:00 AM to 8 PM. A patient care plan is a roadmap of identified goals to help you return home. The process begins with an assessment conducted by each member of your rehab team. After all feedback is received, your medical team will meet and create your care plan. Your care navigator and social worker will review the care plan with you and then on a weekly basis. Your care plan is an ongoing roadmap that all of your team members have access to. This ensures a complete and coordinated approach to your care. Please ask questions. We rely on your ongoing feedback about your needs. Rehabilitation involves a team of many, with you and your family as central in your recovery. Leading the team are rehab physicians called physiatrists, along with psychologists and nurse practitioners. Rehab team members consist of nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, and therapeutic recreation specialists. Care navigators are nurses who coordinate all patient care needs. Social workers connect patients to services needed after discharge. Your rehab team will work with you and your family to coordinate your return home. They will talk with you about changes for you to make at home, equipment you will need, follow up appointments, and home passes. With a home pass, you and your caregivers do a trial run of life at home. Home passes are a great way to determine any additional resources you might need or questions you may have. The day before your discharge, we will celebrate your hard work with achievement day. This also alerts team members to finalize any remaining detail. Soon after your return home, we will call to see how you are doing and answer any questions you may have. Most patients continue therapy, either in their home or at one of our many locations throughout the Twin Cities area. Courage Kenny is always available as a resource for you. Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute. Together with you, make lives work.
