What is the Get Up & Go Program?
The Get Up & Go Program was designed for the functionally independent patient who can tolerate 2-3 hours of therapy a day.
Prior to admission you will meet with our Get Up & Go team who will review your rehab plan and verify insurance so you can focus on your recovery.
Get better faster
Let our short-stay rehab program jump start your recovery. Apple's Get Up & Go program was designed as an alternative to going straight home after surgery with home based services, decreasing the potential for readmission and speeding recovery time.
The Get Up & Go program is a 3-5 day or 5-7 day therapy based program designed to ensure your road to recovery is not delayed due to post-surgical challenges that commonly result in a hospital readmission such as:
- Loss of appetite
- Fatigue & weakness
- Limited help at home
- Difficulty with mobility
- Delay in therapy services
- Complications with prescriptions
- Challenges with home environment such as multi-level floors
