Rehabilitation Nursing Home


When you are faced with a hospitalization due to an injury, illness or a surgery, all you can think about is getting better and returning home. We offer all the advanced, post hospital rehabilitation services that you will need to make this possible.
We are different because you will be directly involved in the development of your individual Safe Transition Home Program as our team of experts provide the guidance, rehabilitation support, and all the physical therapy treatment options you will need to be successful.


Care Options:

  • Short-term Stays
  • Nursing Restorative Programs
  • Hospice
  • IV Therapy
  • Respite Care
  • Wound Care
  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Speech Therapy
  • Respiratory Care (including Tracheostomy)
  • Memory Care Unit

The qualified professionals on your rehabilitation therapy care plan team include: your physicians and/or nurse practitioner, registered and licensed vocational nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapist, (and if needed speech therapist), a dietician, dietary staff, social worker, certified nurse s aides, recreation staff, consulting pharmacist, and other supportive staff members. Contact us so we can begin working with your Physician and the Hospital Discharge Planners/Case Manager or other care providers to arrange your care coordination transition and prepare for your arrival. We will meet with you and your family and answer all your questions and help you through this difficult time.
Your physician will provide all the initial instructions for your rehabilitation care and then we meet to set your specific Transitional physical therapy Care goals and establish your individual rehabilitation care plan. Once the plan is established, we both get to work. You will have a far better chance to recover if you are fully informed of your rehabilitation care options and sign off on your own recovery plan.
When the time comes to go home, we help you arrange a gentle step back home. We will help you organize the support services needed such as Home Care, Equipment, Outpatient or Home Therapy, Technical Safety Options, and Physician follow-up to assure a safe and successful transition back home.
It is our goal to provide the support and education you need to assure you do not require re-admission to the hospital. Our Transitional Care Program works with the following needs:

  • Surgery Recovery
  • Joint/Hip replacement or other orthopedic injuries
  • Stroke and neurological conditions
  • Cardiac related illnesses
  • Pulmonary related illnesses
  • Diabetes management
  • Wound care
  • Oncology Recovery / Strengthening
  • Other conditions that have required hospitalization

What is skilled nursing care?


Skilled nursing care is health care given when you need skilled nursing or rehabilitation staff to treat, manage, observe, and evaluate your care. Examples of skilled care include intravenous injections and physical therapy. It is given in a Skilled Nursing Facility. Care that can be given by non-professional staff isn’t considered skilled care.
People do not usually stay in a Skilled Nursing Facility until they are completely recovered. Medicare covers certain skilled nursing care services that are needed daily on a short-term basis (up to 100 days). Skilled nursing care requires the involvement of skilled nursing care or rehabilitative staff to be given safely and effectively.

Skilled nursing and rehabilitation staff includes:

  • Registered nurses
  • Licensed practical and vocational nurses
  • Physical and occupational therapists
  • Speech-language pathologists, and
  • Audiologists
