Short-Term Rehabilitation for Seniors in San Diego
Rehabilitation Gets You Back to Your Life
After an illness, injury or hospital stay, the right short-term rehabilitation can help you feel like yourself again. At Casa, residents can benefit from expertly delivered therapies in a welcoming environment. We’ve partnered with TMC (Therapy Management Company) to provide the best treatment possible.
Team members with diverse rehabilitation expertise work together to create an individualized care plan for each senior’s unique needs and personality. No matter the approach taken, the goal is to help residents maximize their physical, social and emotional independence.

When we see a short-term rehabilitation resident return to their apartment at Casa, we want them to leave with a greater sense of confidence in their abilities. And of course, we want them to remember that the team at Casa will always be there to provide additional support if they ever need it.
What are the types of therapies you offer?
Occupational therapy is designed to help seniors improve their abilities to complete everyday tasks. Physical therapy allows seniors to regain strength, balance and mobility. Speech therapy gives seniors the tools to enhance their communication and eating or swallowing abilities.
Is occupational therapy the same as physical therapy?
It’s similar in that it can also help restore strength and mobility. But the focus of occupational therapy is on helping seniors improve their abilities to carry out daily tasks through modifications to the physical environment as well as adaptive techniques and equipment that create a greater sense of independence.
What can a resident expect from speech therapy?
Expert speech and language pathologists will address swallowing dysfunctions and communication challenges. Team members design unique treatment plans to help with a resident’s individual issues with language ability. Pathologists will also teach alternate communication strategies and give appropriate diet recommendations.
How often will I receive therapy services?
Each resident receives their own individualized treatment plan. The treatment plan is based around medical certification by their physician, which addresses their individual condition and specific rehabilitation requirements.
Who will be involved in my care?
The team begins with a doctor and nurses and includes expert insight from a social worker, dietitian, and therapists. All specialists work together with residents and their family members to provide care and guide the rehabilitation process.
Does a senior need to be a Casa resident to receive care?
No, they don’t. Rehabilitation services at Casa de las Campanas are available to area seniors through direct admission. We accept most major insurance providers, and our services are Medicare-certified. Our team will be glad to help guide residents and their families through the administrative process.
What happens when a senior is ready to return home?
Prior to discharge, the team will determine the senior’s equipment needs and necessary in-home services. If further treatment is required, seniors can visit the Casa campus to continue outpatient therapy services.
