Recover Faster and Regain Independence & Confidence

After discharge from a hospital following a stroke, surgery, injury, or another acute healthcare event, short-term rehabilitation is often the ideal choice for those who require therapy before returning home.

Stay Well at Uplands Village Before You Safely Return Home

A comfortable senior housing setting, daily nutritious meals, and high-quality medical care help our rehab guests gain maximum recovery to return home safely and maintain the highest level of independence possible.

The short-term rehab center has 31 private rooms, each including a bathroom, TV, phone, wireless internet, and a pull-out bed for family members and friends.


Achieve Your Goals in Our Wellness Center


Rehab guests stay in private rooms at the Uplands Wellness Center. The Wellness Center is equipped with a full kitchen, bath, and state-of-the-art therapy gym. The kitchen and bathroom areas allow guests to work with occupational therapists to build strength and learn new ways to navigate their home environments safely. Every care plan details therapeutic strategies and goals to ensure each guest regains the highest level of function and independence possible before returning home.

Physical therapists work with guests in the therapy gym to exercise large muscle groups for balance, strength, and range of motion. This can include learning to transfer from a bed or chair to a standing position, safely walking on different surfaces, or using adaptive equipment such as prosthetics, rollators, or wheelchairs.


Discover the Unique Benefits of Our Aquatic Center


Aquatic therapy in our indoor pool and spa provides unique rehabilitative benefits. A wheelchair ramp makes the therapy pool accessible to many guests. Being submerged in the water significantly reduces weight-bearing stress, allowing those with mobility challenges to move more easily in the water. Aquatic therapy helps to enhance flexibility and range of motion. 

Both the lap pool and the shallower therapy pool are temperature-controlled. It’s not uncommon to notice the significant benefits of aquatic therapy when a guest exits the pool. They often are more relaxed, limber, and mobile.

In addition to rehabilitative therapies, our wellness and aquatic centers feature a state-of-the-art exercise facility, occupational therapy kitchen and bath, May’s Cafe, a fresh food cafe for patients, residents, guests, and the greater community, indoor therapy pool with a wheelchair-accessible ramp, temperature-controlled pool for lap swimmers, and an eight-person hot tub.
