TruRehab of Eau Claire
"When you DON'T need a nursing home!"
TruRehab of Eau Claire allows for our guests to recover in comfort and style when they simply need just rehab and not a nursing home. The TruRehab Community is unlike any other traditional skilled rehabilitation facility in the area. What makes TruRehab different than the other rehab facilities? TruRehab offers seven programs and optional services to our Guests that make their temporary stay feel more like home. We believe that therapy is about gaining both physical and mental strength, and that your caregiver's education is just as critical to the recovery process as the therapy itself.
Services available at TruRehab of Eau Claire:
TruRehab's goal is for our Guests to return home quickly and safely. We recognize that most Guests have a family member that may be assisting with medications and/or routine cares once the guest has returned home. Our companion suite offers Guests the opportunity, towards the end of their stay, to have their main caregiver spend up to three nights a week with them so that they can work closely with therapy and nursing on transfers, medication assistances, and daily cares needed to ensure a safe return home. Each companion suite offers a complimentary sofa sleeper, toiletry bag, small refrigerator, and discounted meal rates for the caregiver during their overnight stay.
As a caregiver, you are an important part of your loved ones life and we want to ensure a successful transition from TruRehab to home.
TruRehab is proud to offer our Guests choices in their dining selection. During their stay, they may choose to dine in the Barstow Street CafŽ with other TruRehab Guests, or choose in-room service, so that they are able to enjoy their meals in the privacy of their suite with family or friends. TruRehab also offers all Guests an after hours menu with a variety of snacks to choose from in between meals or late in the evening.
Life Enrichment Choices
TruRehab understands that during your stay your focus is on regaining strength and returning home again. However, when the time comes for a little entertainment, our Life Enrichment personnel offer a variety of activities that are sure to suit everyone's needs! Our self directed programs are great for individuals that prefer independent activities. Examples include our lending library, movie rentals, books on tape, and internet access. Our educational sessions offer a variety of local and in house speakers on topics such as Cooking Safety, Fire Safety, Living Wills, and POA papers. Guests may also choose from social groups that include Happy Hour, Computer Education, photography classes, and Nutrition 101.
Rehab Extension Program
TruRehab has bridged the gap between therapy and nursing. We are proud to be the only facility in the area to provide Certified Rehab Nursing Specialists that have been trained by our in house therapists. They work on the endurance, ambulation, self transfers, flexibility, and strength training of our guests in between therapy sessions. Our rehab extension program also offers our Guests self directed activities that provide education on medication administration, self care and safety management. Lastly, we are proud to announce that our Rehab Extension Program also offers wellness services. These include consultations with our psychologist, chaplain, and orthopedic physician.
Caregiver Education Modules
At TruRehab we not only care for our Guests, but their caregivers as well. We encourage all caregivers to take part in our education modules to ensure a successful discharge to home. Our modules include medication management, diabetic management, fall prevention, nutritional education, healthy lifestyles, and helpful household tips from our occupational therapist. As a caregiver or Guest, you may choose one or all six modules.
Going home after a rehab stay is exciting! As a Guest, we know you have worked hard to regain your strength. Our Discharge Aftercare Program prepares you for your discharge while at the facility and provides follow up care once you are at home. All Guests will have the opportunity to work with their therapist in the comfort of their own home. This will assist us in determining if there is a need for any adaptive equipment that might make your time at home more successful. Outpatient therapy is always an option for our Guests who discharge, but would like to continue getting stronger and working with our therapy team. Additionally, a wellness nurse is on call daily for our Guests to contact after their discharge to answer any questions that might come up. Finally, all Guests returning home receive a complimentary discharge gift bag complete with discharge care information, fitness schedule and 2 days of prepared meals to allow time for you to get adjusted and go shopping.
Everyone has something that they enjoy doing and would like to continue to do while away from home. TruRehab's Personal Preference Program allows our Guests to assist us in making their therapy stay as much like home as possible.
