Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Services
We provide rehabilitation therapy and nursing care for patients after hospitalization. Such "post acute" care is often needed after today's shorter hospital stays and may be appropriate following:
- General or cardiac surgery
- Joint replacement and orthopedic surgery
- Traumatic and brain injuries
We also provide complex nursing care for:
- Pain management
- Specialized skin and wound care
- Nutritional support and diabetes management
Hospice or "palliative" care is available if curative or restorative care is no longer appropriate and desired for terminally ill individuals. Hospice care focuses on providing comfort and pain relief as well as pastoral support and counseling for patients and family.
Alzheimer's & Dementia Care
People with Alzheimer's or similar type of memory impairment usually benefit from a structured routine and supportive social environment separate from other long-term care residents. We provide a special secured unit for residents who are able to participate in and benefit from structured activities.
Short-Term Respite Care
Short-term respite care may be provided when an at-home caregiver is temporarily unavailable or in need of personal time away.
Individuals with chronic illness or late-stage Alzheimer's disease are cared for with the goal that they attain their highest functional ability. Individualized care programs provide restorative and rehabilitation services as appropriate to achieve that goal.
