Our Swing Bed program allows you to transfer with confidence from an acute hospital care setting (at TMH or any other hospital) to Swing Bed care at TMH to prepare you for your return home.
As a Swing Bed patient, you will work with a therapy team to become as independent as possible before being discharged from the hospital. Therapy will work on daily tasks such as bathing, dressing and safely moving around your home. Your specific goals and length of stay will be discussed between you and your care team. When you no longer require Swing Bed services, the TMH care manager and discharge specialist will assist in arranging services for you including home care or outpatient rehabilitation, if needed.
