Skilled Nursing Care

Each of our Skilled Nursing Facilities encourage independence through rehabilitative and restorative services. Exceptional quality care is our standard.

What is Skilled Nursing Care?

Skilled Nursing Care includes long-term and short-term care for individuals who need rehabilitation services or who suffer from serious or persistent health issues, that are too complicated to be tended to at home or at an assisted living facility.

Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF) or Nursing Homes, provide custodial and skilled nursing care 24/7. This level of care involves a trained, interdisciplinary team of professionals, who are performing services that are needed temporarily due to an injury or illness.

Fostering Independence

We are pleased that you and your family have trusted us with your skilled nursing care. We want to support not only your medical care, but also your social, emotional, religious and recreational needs.

Our interdisciplinary team will help you achieve your goals with an individualized treatment plan that is designed to help you return to your prior functioning level. Our Interdisciplinary team is composed of nurses and nursing assistants, physical, occupational and speech therapists, dieticians, social worker, activities coordinators, physicians and administration. We provide outstanding care for inpatients and help to coordinate additional care needs once you are discharged from the unit.

Each of our Skilled Nursing Facilities encourage independence through rehabilitative and restorative services allowing you to return home or transition to another facility. Exceptional quality care is our standard.

What to Expect

During the admission process, you will be greeted by a member of the nursing staff, who will help you get settled in your room, and orient you to your new environment. An admission assessment will be completed, review your pain level, and a full head to toe skin assessment.

Later that day, or early in the next day, you will meet with a member of our therapy team, who will complete their initial evaluation and assessment. This will begin with your therapist asking you questions about your injury, pain level, and medical history. Then the therapist will use tools and hands on tests to determine your current strength level, range of motion, movement and functional limitations.

After your therapist determines what problems therapy can address, they will devise a plan to get you back to your activities. This plan may consist of exercise to improve strength, flexibility, balance, range of motion, and endurance; modalities (ice, heat, ultrasound, electrical stimulation) and hands on treatment called manual therapy.

Education & Resources

One of the most critical components of your stay is patient education. We will teach you how to manage your symptoms at home and what you can do to achieve your goals. Rehabilitation is a team effort, so it is extremely important for you (and your family) to participate in your treatment.

To better prepare you for your stay, our team created a Skilled Nursing Booklet, which contains all the information that will be important to you during your stay with us.  This booklet will be provided to you upon admission, either digitally or via paper copy.
