In the Middle. At Dad's first SNF, a huge round aquarium full of beautiful fish separated the right side, long term residents from the left side, the rehab residents. Dad at first stayed on the rehab side, then eventually was moved to the residential side. The rooms were identical. When my MIL first came to the facility, she was in the rehab side, she eventually moved over also, and this is where she passed. We went to visit them both, my husband and I.
