Rehab & Recovery Venice



The Inn offers luxury accommodations and a commitment to providing a clinically integrated continuum of post-acute care that results in patients regaining their optimum functions as quickly as possible. Because each person's needs are unique, treatment is individualized based on the patient's physical limitations, abilities and goals for recovery. Our exceptional rehab and recovery rates are the result of a seamless integration of post-acute services – which include physical, occupational, cardio-pulmonary, and speech therapy – delivered through our skilled nursing, rehabilitation, and outpatient therapy programs.

Award Winning Care

The Inn at Sarasota Bay Club has earned numerous awards including the “National Quality Award” from the American Health Care Association and a “Certificate of Achievement” from the National Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative.   



PHysical Therapy 

Our physical therapists provide therapy services to patients from a wide range of conditions including orthopedic, medically complex, neuromuscular and/or musculoskeletal dysfunctions. Physical therapy plays a vital role to restore movement, decrease pain, and improve strength, endurance, balance, flexibility and range of motion. 

  • Recovering from hip, knee, back, or shoulder surgery.
  • Experiencing weakness, acute or chronic pain.
  • At risk of falling due to a decreasing balance.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists help patients become more independent by teaching them new ways to perform life tasks such as making breakfast, dressing or simply brushing their hair. Occupational therapists also teach patients how to protect their muscles and joints and increase their strength and endurance. When necessary, they provide training in the use of adaptive equipment, such as reachers and long handled shoehorns. Home evaluations are conducted to assess for safety issues.

Cardio-Pulmonary Rehabilitation

The Inn has created a new Cardio-Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program to consistently deliver excellent results in a timely manner for Patients. Cardio-Pulmonary Rehab features seamless coordination between our medical director, Dr. Scott Elsbree, MD, our care staff, our rehabilitation therapists, the Patient’s doctors, and the Patient and their family. This team generates specific care, nutrition, and therapy plans to ensure that our Patients are being discharged much faster than the national average with a much lower re-admission rate back to the hospital.

Cardio-Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program Components:

  • Comprehensive Patient Evaluation resulting in a Care, Nutrition, and Rehabilitation Plan with measurable outcomes. This holistic process addresses the specifics of the patient’s unique set of issues through a team approach.

  • Medical Management of the symptoms and complications of the Patient’s diseases, achieved through individualized intervention, proper contingency planning and appropriate follow-up plans. The Inn’s Care Staff go through specific training for serving the medically complex Cardio-Pulmonary Patient.

  • Rehabilitation Therapies including Physical, Occupational and Speech, adapted to the specific requirements of the patient. Rehabilitation staff are specially trained to aid the patient in reducing the impact of debilitating conditions. They work with the Patients and their families on continued treatment at home to better maintain independent functioning.

  • Nutrition for our Patients is specifically designed for their complex medical conditions. Nutritionists work with the patients and families on the appropriate nutritional adjustments that may need to occur as the patient goes home.

  • Communication with all members of the care team is key. With the medically complex Patient we need to regularly adjust and modify the care plan based on the progress or changes in the patient’s condition. It is vital that this communication includes the Patient’s Doctors and family.

  • Specialized Education and Training for Caregivers, Patients, and their Families about managing the Patient’s specific conditions, continuing exercise regimens, and eliminating potential risks or hazards in the home.
