They highlight their locations and how the support services that patients may require can change, depending on the status of their health. Ann and Mark detail how Barnes Jewish Hospital home health services work with the Rehabilitation Institute of St. Louis to provide care, even after patients leave the facility.

Ann and Mark talk about easy Medicare is to work with, in terms of in-patient rehabilitative care and also highlight how total hip or knee replacement is no longer covered on an in-patient basis at their facility.

They all detail how ailments like a broken hip are no longer as grim of a prognosis as it once was and how important making adjustments to rehabilitative exercise program can be for seniors experiencing pain from rehabilitative exercises.
