Helping patients get back to life

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) When an illness or accident leads to a hospital stay, the care provided in that setting is often just part of the journey to wellness for the patient. Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital provides a unique service to assist people in their own homes, helping them return to the activities that are important to them as soon as possible.

Mary Free Bed’s Home & Community Program continues the therapy and goals that started when the patient was in the hospital. When patients first arrive home, everyday tasks like housework and getting dressed can be difficult. The therapies Mary Free Bed performs help the patient get back to what they love to do.

To receive treatment through the Home & Community Program, a person does not need to be homebound, but does need a physician referral. The program helps patients who find it difficult to go to outpatient therapy locations due to their condition, travel distance, or cost.

You can find more on what Mary Free Bed has to offer by calling (616) 235-3984 or visiting their website.
