Post-Acute Care Q&A

What is post-acute care?

Post-acute care includes rehabilitation services that you may need after a hospital stay. These services may include inpatient care at a facility, outpatient therapy, or medical care in your own home.

Ample Health provides post-acute care services to support your recovery and ensure you have the resources you need. The goal of post-acute care is to maximize your health, restore your independence, and prevent the need for additional hospitalization.

Why would I need post-acute care?

You might benefit from post-acute care if you spend time in the hospital for a surgery, illness, or injury. These services support your transition from the hospital to your next steps in recovery.

The Ample Health team can coordinate any additional care you need as you heal. They can refer you to an inpatient facility for rehabilitative care or to specialists for:

  • Wound care
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Respiratory therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Psychological counseling 
  • Memory and comprehensive therapy

They can also help you find long-term care facilities if you or a loved one needs daily medical care to address complex health conditions or hospice care to manage a terminal illness. 

Before you leave the hospital, the team meets with you to evaluate your needs and discuss plans for moving forward with additional medical care. 

They also continue to follow your treatment and recovery during in-office visits or virtual telehealth appointments that you access from your computer, smartphone, or tablet.

What are the benefits of post-acute care?

Some injuries and illnesses require ongoing care after your discharge from the hospital. This care may be needed on a short or long-term basis, depending on the nature of your condition. 

The Ample Health team can help make your transition to after-care services as smooth as possible, so you can continue to focus on your recovery.

Post-acute care offers other benefits, including:
