Short-Term Care

Following surgery, the most successful recoveries happen during a short stay in a comfortable setting, with onsite therapy and rehab professionals. It’s the best possible scenario because it eliminates scheduling and transportation challenges so elders can focus on healing in a peaceful, relaxed environment.

With only 12 elders in each cottage, and top-notch infection control practices, the likelihood for infection transmission at Green House® Cottages of Wentworth Place is substantially lower than at traditional facilities. This is a huge plus when recovering from surgery because when you sign up for a short stay, the last thing you want is an infection to impede progress and lengthen healing time.

All elders, no matter the length of their stay, enjoy all the amenities, services, and compassionate care:

  • Clean, comfortable, climate-controlled private rooms and bathrooms
  • Daily Housekeeping
  • Laundry Services
  • 24/7 Made-to-Order Meals
  • 24/7 Onsite Personal Care
  • 24/7 Onsite Nursing Care
  • Full Access to Therapy & Rehab Services

How Long is Short?

A short stay can last a week, eight weeks, or somewhere in between. It varies depending on the person, the complexity of their medical condition, treatment plan, and ability to heal. A team of medical professionals – doctor, nurse practitioner, director of nursing, MDS coordinator, social services representative, and rehab therapists – meet regularly to strategize how to help the elder recover, be discharged, and return home.
