Rehabilitation & place in facility

My husband had a stroke 45 days ago. He is going to be placed in a skilled nursing facility. This terrifies me especially because I won't be able to visit him & see how he is being cared for. How can I be certain he is receiving the rehab therapies he needs? From my research it states family members should be involved in rehab. I can't be due to no visitation policies.

    I am so sorry to hear about your husband's stroke. I can imagine how frustrating it must be to not be able to visit your husband in the care facility where he is currently staying. I am glad to hear that the nursing facility is skilled, and perhaps that can be a source of comfort for you while you are spending time apart. I would also suggest reaching out to his care team directly to raise any questions or concerns over the phone. 

    Please update us on your husband's progress and how you are doing. We're rooting for you both!

    Best Wishes,

    Hi I pray for your husband and so sorry. During this most difficult time the last thing you should have to worry about is what care your husband is receiving. I can offer my advise  because my husband as well suffered severe stroke a month ago and  with sthe hospital not allowing visit I made several calls to nurses and discharge planners making it very clear I was on top of what care my husband was getting constantly  asking question.  I know this might not be what you want to hear but it does let them know he has a wife who is on top of his care.
