The Road to Recovery
A stroke or hip fracture can be a game changer for anyone. But in many cases, with God’s grace,
with strength and determination, and with the help of caring, dedicated professionals - the road to
recovery is quite accessible.
After a major hospitalization, older patients sometimes are unable to safely return home right away.
Depending on their needs, insurance coverage, and one’s ability to participate in therapy, short-term
rehabilitation may be recommended by the discharging physician. Messiah Lifeways at Messiah
Village’s Wagner Transitional Care has been providing this vital care for the last two decades in
South Central Pennsylvania.
Wagner Transitional Care features private rehab rooms with private bathrooms, a state-of-the-art
rehab gym, and private treatment rooms. The campus also offers a number of amenities that make
a necessary and sometimes trying period a little more pleasurable. Individuals have access to a
restaurant, coffee shop, gift shop, hair salon, chapel, and other amenities. Most importantly, the
in-house physicians, medical staff, and highly trained physical therapists, occupational therapists,
and speech pathologists from AdvantageCare™ Rehab, are focused on getting individuals back
on their feet and home as quickly as possible.
