Short Term Skilled Rehabilitation

Outside Community Direct Admits:

Trying to find the right short term rehab can be a challenge for most families; however, for a limited time, Harbor’s Edge is able to offer the outside community access to become a direct admission to our Short Term Skilled Rehab unit. Now you don’t have to be a Harbor’s Edge LifeCare resident to take advantage of our superior Short Term Skilled Rehab services. For patients discharging from a hospital stay or with skilled needs and/or nursing needs, Harbor’s Edge offers a short term care facility on site. With comforting surroundings and specially trained staff, patients can recover close to home and receive the therapy and care they need.

Our short term care facility offers patients the same level of comfort and luxury they would enjoy in our main residence, with private rooms and three delicious meals served daily with professional dietary counseling. Patients have access to a beauty salon and barber shop for hair and nail care, and daily activities are planned by a full-time lifestyle coordinator.


Features of our short term care facility include:

  • Physical, occupational, and speech therapy with licensed therapists
  • Patient centered care provided by licensed nurses and certified nursing assistants
  • Participating provider for Medicare, Tricare and many other insurances

The Harbor’s Edge Health Center offers patients with 24-hour access to care from area physicians, nurses and clinical professionals, with accommodations in private, spacious suites.

Lifecare Residents:

We offer a continuum of care to our Lifecare residents from residential living to assisted living, memory support, and long-term care. Access to rehabilitative services is also provided for Lifecare residents.

The Health Center offers a personalized health plan tailored to specific needs and desires. We provide assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) including personal hygiene, dressing, eating, walking, toileting, and transferring from one position to another.

Specially-planned events provide the opportunity to enjoy the companionship of others in warm, open gathering areas. The staff work closely with those in Health Center to ensure that they know they are an integral part of daily life at Harbor’s Edge.

In addition to the regular services that all Harbor’s Edge residents enjoy, Health Center residents can count on:

  • Urgent call system
  • Medication administration
  • Health education
  • Fitness and wellness programs
  • Nutritional assistance
  • Daily bed making
  • Housekeeping and flat linen service
  • Personal laundry services
  • Social, educational, and recreational programs
  • 3 well-balanced meals per day
  • Restorative nursing

Read some “Thank you letters” from previous patients in our Short Term Skilled Rehabilitation. We pride ourselves in offering excellent care.

“From January 16 through February 6, I was privileged to stay in your beautiful facility and receive care from your staff. Words really do fail me when trying to convey how grateful I am for the attention you each gave me. Having had bilateral knee replacements, I was facing an unknown and frightening period of adjustment. Your staff gave me assurance, loving care, challenging therapy, and encouragement. There is a tangible spirit of love at Harbor’s Edge that wrapped itself around me and carried me through a fearful time. From the precious CNAs and the nursing staff, my wonderfully firm physical therapist and the occupational therapists, they invest themselves in the welfare of their patients bringing physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. Thank you for turning an anxious time for me into a truly enjoyable experience. You have my most sincere gratitude. I am a walking advertisement for Harbor’s Edge!”

-Barbara C., Rehab Patient


“I was fortunate enough to spend my rehab in your facility twice within the last four months. I could not have been more pleased at the excellent care I received. Each of you showed professional qualities as well as respect, friendship, and endless ways to make sure I was pleased. Thank you for a wonderful experience from a terrific staff. I will never forget it. You all have a special place in my heart.”

-Anne C. Rehab Patient
