Admissions Guidelines During The COVID-19 Pandemic
As of August 5th, 2021
Although our process looks different, our commitment to guiding and motivating you to heal and regain your abilities remains the same. Our goal is to work with you and your family to achieve your rehabilitation goals and make the transition from rehab to home simple and smooth and… ensuring you have a positive experience along the way.
Residents and their families can view the short-term rehab unit and the rest of the Selfhelp community through a virtual tour. Click here to take the virtual tour.
We require a referral from the hospital case worker, including a COVID-19 test within three of admission or the most recent COVID-19 test. Other necessary documents include a History & Physical, recent laboratory test results, therapy notes, MAR and nursing/ medical professional notes. All referrals are considered on a case-by-case basis.
The First 14 Days
During the first 14 days at Selfhelp, residents should quarantine, regardless of vaccination status. This update is as of 08/06/21 by IDPH.
Therapy will be conducted in our therapy gym unless a 14 -day precautionary isolation period is required. In this case, therapy will take place in the resident’s room for the first 14 days. We will limit the number of people in the gym at one time to ensure proper physical distancing. More information about the various types of specialized rehabilitation programs offered is available on our website.
Care Plan Meetings
Care plan meetings will be arranged with our care team members by phone call to review treatment and review the rehabilitation goals.
Individuals coming to Selfhelp for short-term rehabilitation may have a private caregiver. The private caregivers must have a COVID-19 test three days prior to admission. Private caregivers must be properly registered with The Selfhelp Home.
