What is Outpatient Therapy?
As an outpatient client of Spearfish Canyon Healthcare, you will be expected to participate in your recovery according to whichever stage of recovery you are in. For example, immediately following hospital discharge, you might need intensive outpatient therapy for many hours on a daily basis. As you begin to regain your health and wellness, you might only need outpatient therapy a few hours each week. It is important for patients to follow therapy schedules closely to gain the maximum benefit from treatment.
Outpatient therapy is often a preferred form of therapy following discharge from an acute hospital. The benefits of outpatient therapy are obvious. For example, our outpatient clients still receive the amount of intensive care and therapy that they need, but they get to go home afterward. We all know that there is no place like home! Being home can make people happy and aid in a speedy, complete recovery.
Is Outpatient Therapy Better than Inpatient Therapy?
The answer to this question will vary from patient to patient. The best thing that we can advise is for each patient to consult with their doctors. Often, patients will prefer outpatient treatment over inpatient therapy because outpatient treatment allows them to be at home most of the time. Living and sleeping at home is very important to people, so it is understandable while most would opt for outpatient therapy over inpatient therapy.
However, inpatient therapy has advantages. Some patients need hands-on care round-the-clock that would not be possible if they lived at home. Plus, by staying in Spearfish Canyon Healthcare’s inpatient residential facility, you’ll likely be able to make a speedy recovery and get back to full strength faster. Let’s work together. Spearfish Canyon Healthcare will work with you, your healthcare team, and your family to coordinate the care that is best for you. We can help you to determine whether outpatient therapy or inpatient therapy would be best for you.
