What is Post Acute Care?

Improving the quality of life
Post-acute care (PAC) includes rehabilitation services the patients receive after, or in some cases instead of, a stay in a hospital, which is considered acute care. Post-acute care also includes palliative care, which is specialized medical care for patients with serious illnesses. Palliative care is focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. The goal with palliative and rehabilitation care and services is to improve the quality of life for the patient and the family.

Achieving maximum functionality
South Coast Post Acute cares for our patients after their hospitalization. Our skilled nursing and physical rehabilitation program help patients achieve their maximum functional capacity and get back to their homes and community in the shortest time possible. To achieve this goal, patients at South Coast Post Acute receive physical, occupational, and speech therapy from compassionate, highly-skilled therapists. Our therapists work in conjunction with our team of physicians, nurses, social workers, and nutritionists, along with the patient and their family to develop a comprehensive and individualized plan of care.
