Hospital Referrals
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 that have not been fully vaccinated in full will undergo a precautionary isolation period and will be quarantined in their room. Residents that have had 1 dose (of a 1-dose series) 14+ days ago OR 2 doses (of a 2-dose series) 14+ days ago, will NOT be required to quarantine.

Therapy Services
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.

Private Caregiver
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.
