    Post-Hospital Stay Therapy Transition

    Whether you or your loved one is not yet home or is recently home from the hospital, planning for follow
    up therapy should be an important next step. Early after discharge, as soon as possible following a
    medical incident, there is what is called a “critical window” of time during which it is best to receive
    intensive therapy for optimal recovery.

    At SDST, we provide on-site or in-clinic care, depending on your needs. We work with children and adults of all ages recovering from brain injuries, brain surgeries, stroke, cancer treatment, swallowing problems (including feeding tube dependence), and a variety of communication and speech problems. We coordinate care with your in hospital care providers for an optimal continuum-of-care.

    “I really understand her swallowing problems better. It was embarrassing for her to eat in public because of the choking and coughing; but now that she’s swallowing better, we can go out without a traumatic experience.”
