Rehabilitation is a vital part of the recovery process after any post-acute stay. It improves functional mobility, average daily living skills (ADLs), as well as speech and swallowing disorders. Sometimes an inpatient stay at a skilled nursing facility, such as Copley, is required to facilitate your rehab goals.
Denis Andreotti, our Director of Rehab Services, is a native of Norwood, MA with strong ties in the Canton community, as his family owned and operated Andreotti Pharmacy for many years. Denis holds a Masters in Physical Therapy from the MGH Institute of Health Professions and has been with Copley for over seven years now. He enjoys the fact that all of his staff works for Copley (many skilled nursing facilities sub-contract therapy to a third party) and the freedom he has to manage his department in an effective way.
He coordinates and operates the services of the department to ensure that Copley guests reach their maximum potential to live as independent a life as possible, while returning home as quickly as possible. Copley at Stoughton’s Rehabilitation Department is a total in-house operation and offers separate physical and occupational areas that are equipped to deal with a range of conditions resulting from elective orthopedic procedures, injury or debilitating acute/chronic illnesses. All of our therapists are staff members who get to know each and every guest under their care.
Doctors often recommend post-acute care facilities to patients but it is important to remember that if you have Medicare benefits then where you go for therapy is up to you! It is YOUR CHOICE to pick a place you feel is the best fit and more importantly convenient for you and your family. If you are having an elective surgery and are pre-booking your post-acute stay, make sure that you do your research and pick the best place that fits your needs.
Denis welcomes guests to stop by and chat with him before their procedures to make sure Copley is a good match for your needs, and explain what to expect during a rehabilitation stay.
