Short Term Rehab

For a seamless path to recuperation, we have Care Navigation that is dedicated to a comprehensive recovery.

For Viera Health and Rehabilitation Center

This level of care is for those needing a short rehabilitation or nursing stay to transition back to their prior level of care or independent living. Most of the patients seeking this care have experienced surgery, a stroke, or some other sort of debilitating setback. Their physician expects them to make a recovery and return to independent living or their living situation before the incident. 

The Rehabilitation Program Designed for You

The Rehabilitation Program at Viera Health and Rehabilitation Center is a specialized program that works with patients up to 7 days a week to help them get back home, to work, independent living or what else their goal is. We are dedicated to improving the strength, mobility, and independence of our short-term rehab guests so they can return to their daily lives as quickly as possible.

Our certified therapists will use several different techniques on different equipment that work your body, mind, and coordination. Our modern rehabilitation gym includes state-of-the-art equipment and an ADL Suite (Activities of Daily Living). We work to treat your current physical state as well as get you ready to go back home.

The customized therapy plan may include one or more of the following therapies:

Physical Therapy

Occupational Therapy

Speech Therapy

Respiratory Therapy

Meeting Short-term Rehabilitation Benchmarks and Milestones

Often with short-term therapy there will be specific benchmarks and milestones we are looking to help you accomplish. One of the benefits of working every day is we get to see how you are progressing to help you get where you need to be. Our therapists want to get to know the whole person. This includes the activities that are important to you, both as hobbies and those necessary to daily living.

We will celebrate the milestones you make, the benchmarks you reach and the goals you achieve. Our certified therapists know how to bring out the best in each person. Schedule a visit and tour our gym to see how we can bring out the best of you or your loved one.

Continuing After Short-term Care

Once you are ready to go home, we can help with coordinating any continuing care you may need. While you may have reached the milestones your physician set for you, trauma to the body can take a while to heal.

Occasionally residents and families may choose to remain for long-term care. This is a decision that may come from deciding what is best for a patient. We are honored when a patient and their loved ones choose to call Viera Health and Rehabilitation Center their home and are here to provide the assistance you need.

What People are Saying About us

I can not say enough great things about the staff and the care that is given at this nursing home. The administrator, Delbert, and the Director of Nursing, Ashley, were so attentive to making sure all my questions were answered even though I could tell they were both very busy. It was really refreshing after visiting other places to see that I didn't just talk to someone who couldn't answer my questions, but really explain what I could expect when we arrived and my friend's loved one would be well taken care of. Very cleanly and the people who were there already were smiling and clean AND they had a great person who was making sure everyone was having fun and enjoying themselves. Highly recommend!

I had worked for them a little over a year, and they all made me feel welcomed our staff is like family always there for each other.our residents and family seemed happy and would compliment the therapy and nursing team, Activities what can I say they all Rock. The building is well maintained and very clean. H.R. is awesome she has been there for me helping me through all I have been going through.I would still be working but for family reasons I had to resign. If anything happens to my love one I would bring them here for Rehab. If you want a great family orientated work place go and apply. If your loved one needs to go to Rehab. call us and have your loved one come here for a professional and family like atmosphere where our staff care not only for the residents but the family to.

I am a nurse at a hospital in the area. My father was there for rehab after a fall at home. The nursing staff there were knowledgeable and did their best to resolve any questions or concerns we had. I understand no place is perfect but, it's more important to me and my family how concerns are addressed when brought forth. I can honestly say that the staff at Viera Health and Rehabilitation Center addressed concerns swiftly and followed up. We received weekly calls for updates from nursing managers as well as other staff managers calling to discuss discharge and therapy status. They were honest and realistic. I understand first-hand how busy nursing is and how difficult patients and families can be. I witnessed several times nursing staff resolve concerns with families. The majority of staff was very pleasant including housekeeping. You could walk through the building at any time, and it smelled clean. The other patients there looked clean, and you see events going on to entertain the patients there. Even the outside of the building looks kept up. We were there at dinner and the meal smelled appetizing however I didn't eat from their cafeteria. We would definitely come back if another member of the family needed rehab.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I go through rehabilitation at a nursing home?

We have the full rehabilitation set-up including equipment, certified therapists, and a great location. Just like we provide a comprehensive home-like atmosphere for our residents, we do the same for our short-term rehabilitation patients. You will get the great dining, relaxing grounds and courtyards, and 24-hour medical access along with everything else you need for your rehabilitation. Complete rehabilitation requires your therapy sessions as well as relaxing downtime in order to heal.


How is a nursing home different from a hospital?

Nursing homes in the past used to be stark, institutional places that were cold and lonely. We cannot stress enough how much nursing homes have changed.

  • Our centers are designed to provide the home-like atmosphere you want for your loved one while still providing any medical care they need.
  • We provide social activities for mind and body well-being, companionship, and socialization.
  • Our dining services are specialized and provided in a posh and comforting dining room.
  • We do not restrict visiting except in certain health crisis situations.
  • We have rehabilitation services for extended care and comfort.
  • Residents can bring personal items with them.
  • We celebrate holidays, birthdays and promote a sense of community.
What safety measures are in place?
Safety measures are one of the reasons families may decide their loved ones are better situated at a nursing home than in their own homes. We have 24-hour nursing and medical staff, medical supplies and equipment, medication and are also designed with fall and safety precautions in mind. We also make sure your loved one is under constant surveillance while still respecting privacy. Locked security systems, cameras, visitor logs, supervised outings, emergency call buttons and more are designed to keep safety and security in place even while in a home-like atmosphere.
What can my loved one bring with them?
We proved all the furniture your loved one needs. We do recommend bringing pictures, a favorite blanket, or cherished knickknacks. We discourage bringing anything of value, electrical items or anything that takes up large amounts of space. When you come for your tour you will get a better idea of what space is available and we can provide you with some suggestions as well.
