Skilled Nursing Care
We provide 24 hour skilled and sub-acute Nursing Care. Our nursing staff is available around the clock, to manage the care of our residents. Our Medical Director has many years of experience dealing with a wide range of chronic and acute medical conditions. We have wonderful programs dealing with varying levels of dementia as well as other psychological and social disorders.
Rehabilitation is a key component of our Nursing Home. Led by Roxanne Higgins we have a dynamic and devoted rehab team. Roxanne runs many rehab facilities and is a true expert in the field. We have a beautiful recently renovated rehab treatment center. The rehab department is divided into two categories, short term rehab for residents who are returning home and a rehab program for long term residents who are experiencing a decline and have potential for being restored to a higher level of function.
Short Term Rehabilitation
Residents who come in following surgery or a medical event such as a stroke or fracture receive comprehensive therapy from our team of professionals. Our primary goal is to restore the residents to their prior level of functioning allowing them to return to their homes in the community. In addition to their rehabilitation we provide them with emotional support to help them through this difficult period in their life. Our team of professionals have extensive training and experience in rehabilitative medicine. Our team provides physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and audiology, post-operative orthopedic care, post-stroke training in self-care, post cardiac care and rehabilitation and restorative nursing care.
Long Term Care
As our long term population ages they sometimes experience a decline in activities of daily living. Our nursing staff, as well as our therapists are constantly monitoring each resident’s level of function. If a decline is discovered, the patient is referred to the therapist who evaluates the resident for potential improvement. The residents that have potential are given a program tailor made for their needs to help them regain prior level of function. Our therapy program assists our residents in maintaining their highest level of functioning allowing them to experience the aging process with independence and dignity.
Palliative, Comfort and Hospice Care
We provide palliative and comfort care for residents and families facing end of life. Services include pain management, comfort and safety care, psychological, emotional and spiritual support. Our specialized medical and dietary staff addresses all symptoms of the resident disease process to provide maximum comfort to our residents during this difficult time. We contract with several hospice services to provide on site hospice care.
Social Work Services
Each resident is assigned a social worker upon admission. The social workers are provided to residents and families to assist in dealing with issues related to placement, adjustment and discharge planning. Our social work staff is readily accessible to families for telephone and in-person consultation. The social workers advocate on behalf of the residents and treat them like a member of their own family.
Our 18-bed secured unit is the ideal setting for individuals in various stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. With its own sensory room and stimulating activity program, we have created a neighborhood for our residents to truly call home.
Our devoted staff are committed to providing quality care to these residents with the goal of maintaining and supporting their cognition and functional abilities. Our medical, nursing and therapeutic recreation staff provide a loving and caring environment for these residents. We utilize our Psychiatrist and Psychologist to support the needs of our residents to best provide person centered care.
Under the leadership of our experienced medical director, our team of physicians provide routine and acute medical care to our residents. Physician services are available twenty-four hours a day seven days a week. All treatment plans for our residents are under the guidance of our physicians and they are intimately involved in all aspects of care.
Dietary services are provided by our Registered Dietitians and the Food Service Director. The dietitians make sure the residents are getting the proper nourishment and eating healthy. Our Food Service Director takes great pride in making sure the residents are receiving tasty food. She meets with the residents often so she can receive their input and make any possible accommodations. We provide a large number of therapeutic diets based on the physician orders. Nutritional counseling is provided to help the resident better understand the nature of their dietary needs as a result of their diagnoses.
Our passionate activities staff offer a variety of programs based on a resident’s interests, needs and abilities. Our staff tailors a program to accommodate the resident’s history and interests. Events take place daily throughout the facility and in our newly renovated residents’ lounge. Individualized one to one activities are provided in residents rooms for those residents requiring this type of service.
