Looking for some help. My father had a fall at his apartment a few weeks ago. He had hip surgery while in the hospital. The doctor suggested rehab facility after because he was shaky walking before the surgery.  W  He has been in a short term rehab facility the last few weeks payed for by medicare. I’m not too thrilled with the rehab facility therapy.   He appears to be still wobbly on his feet and I’ve chatted with the rehab director about increasing his therapy.  My neighbor who is a nurse at another hospital suggested an extended care hospital for better rehab care.    I’m curious to know if anyone can tell me about extended care hospital and how it compares to a short term rehab facility.  His overall health had been good before the fall and at this rate I just want to see him return home to the activities he did before the fall.
