Short Term Senior Care and Senior Rehabilitation in St Peter, MN
Getting back to you, on your terms.
When surgery, illness or injury keeps you from doing the things you enjoy, senior rehabilitation and short-term senior care services at Benedictine Living Community–St. Peter can help speed your recovery. Inpatient short-term senior care and rehabilitation help individuals recovering from hospital stays for complex medical issues such as stroke, injury, or even elective surgeries who need 24-hour care in a fully equipped senior rehabilitation center.
For those recovering from surgery or injury and able to live at home, our St. Peter, MN, senior rehabilitation center also offers outpatient therapy sessions.
In either case, the goal of our professional, caring staff is to help the individual recover independence, move confidently, communicate effectively, and manage activities of daily life with little to no assistance.
