You may benefit from Mayo Post Acute Care if you are recovering from an illness or surgery and no longer need acute care, but can’t yet return home.
While you are in Mayo Post Acute Care, you receive daily skilled care in a Mayo Clinic Health System hospital. If your condition permits, you will be encouraged to:
Participate in daily activities
Perform your daily cares
Dress in your own clothes
Creating Your Care Plan
You and your family will work with a team of caregivers to develop your individual care plan, focusing on meeting your physical, spiritual, and social needs. Your health care team will meet with you weekly to ensure you are progressing toward your planned goals.
A Team Approach
Your multidisciplinary team caring for you during your hospital stay can include:
Certified nursing assistants
Licensed practical nurses
Rehabilitation professionals, such as physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapists
Mayo Post Acute Care teams consult with providers from referring acute care hospitals, including other Mayo locations, should questions or concerns arise.
