What Is Short Term Care?

Short term care is an in-patient stay with a finite duration. It may be one day or a few weeks or even a few months. What differentiates short-term care from long-term care is that the condition being treated is expected to improve to the point that the patient can be discharged.


How It Works

During a short-term stay, the focus is on wellness. Since short-term care is only for a specified time limit, care plans are designed to get the patient to their optimal level of health, mobility and independence based on their illness or injury. For respite care, the focus is providing a safe and nurturing environment for the patient, while giving the full-time caregivers peace of mind so that they can return to the patient rested and refreshed.

Why Would Someone Need Short Term Care?

There are many reasons why short term care might be the best choice. Some common reasons are:

  • Need for skilled nursing care after medical procedures

  • Respite care to allow caregivers some time off

  • Illness or injury where the patient has no family or caregiver to help during recovery
