The Swing Bed program was developed to provide residents/patients who are not ready for discharge with care and help needed to prepare them for self-care at home. The service is also used to provide patients with extra care before returning to the nursing home or other long-term facility.
We use a multi-disciplinary approach to treat all of our residents/patients. Many professionals will work with you to set and achieve goals. These goals are set to aid you in a speedy recovery and discharge.
Swing bed is normally a rehabilitative step before going home. This is to help the resident/patient to be more able to care for themselves at home. It is very important for the resident/patient to do as much as possible themselves, but gives them the security of knowing that the nursing and ancillary staff is always available to help.
