So, you or a loved one is in the hospital.  Maybe it was a bad fall or maybe you had a surgery or even a stroke.  Good news is you're on the mend and discharging soon!  But the doctor says you need therapy, and you probably have a lot of questions.Where do I go for therapy? What kind of therapy? Why can't I go home? 

How about some more good news?  The Chateau Girardeau Rehabilitation Team is here to help you and your family navigate the rehabilitation process.  We are there with you every step of the way.  From admission to post-discharge, our highly-skilled team of care experts will work with you and your physician to develop the best care program for your individual needs and goals.  We have on-site physical, occupational and speech therapists as well as a team of nurses and registered dietitians who are all there to make sure you receive the best care and have the best experience possible.

We absolutely understand that choosing a rehabilitation center is a big decision.  The first steps start in the hospital and our Nurse Navigator will be there to help with any questions you may have.  Here are just a few:  

Will Medicare pay for my stay?

Medicare may pay if you have been admitted to the hospital for three consecutive nights and you meet the medical criteria for therapy or nursing up to 100 days.  

How long will my stay be?

Your length of stay will depend on your individual situation.  Our goal is to get you home as quickly and safely as possible!

How will I get to my doctor's appointments?

The Chateau offers transportation to and from local doctor's offices and hospitals.  We even have a dedicated aide available to accompany you if needed.

How do I choose The Chateau?

If you are in the hospital and interested in coming to The Chateau, please let Social Services or your Case Manager at the hospital know that you are interested and they will send us your information.  If we are able to admit you, we follow up with you and your family to make arrangements for your arrival.  If during any of our visits with you, a family member is interested in visiting The Chateau to learn more, we are happy to oblige!
