Our highly regarded Alzheimer's/Dementia programs offer residents comfort, stimulation and socialization in a secure environment. Our specialized staff evaluates each dementia patient and creates a plan of care that best suits that individual. Having social interaction proves to slow the progression of dementia and therefore we encourage socialization through group activities and appropriate therapies.
Dementia is not a single disorder, but rather a combination of age-related symptoms involving a loss of mental skills and deteriorating brain function. Patients with dementia gradually lose memory, communication skills, the ability to reason, and the facility to complete the tasks of everyday living.
In the United States, about 2,000,000 people are living with limb loss. Every year, 185,000 people undergo an amputation, with below-the-knee amputations most common. With that number expected to double over the next few decades, the need for rehabilitation is likely to grow.
The primary goal of our Amputation Therapy programs is to help regain function. This includes the ability to manage daily self-care. This can be very difficult for a new amputee, but our team is with you at all times to help you become successful and independent.
We also prepare patients for use of a prosthesis, if applicable. This process takes time and specialized care. Physical and occupational therapists address each person’s unique needs for returning to your home and community. Medication management, pain control and healing of the incision are all priorities for the interdisciplinary care team.
We offer an unparalleled program for those requiring cardiac care. Through carefully planned regiments, we have successfully helped hundreds of patients live long, healthy, productive lives.
Cardiac care is recommended for patients who have experienced a heart attack, transplant, angioplasty, congestive heart failure, or other similar ailments. At the outset, each resident receives a thorough evaluation to determine their unique medical needs and to chart a robust rehabilitation plan. This plan is devised with the input of registered nurses, pulmonologists, physiologists, and numerous other medical professionals to ensure all areas are covered.
Our knowledgeable team then quickly puts the plan into motion, providing cutting-edge treatments and therapies to meet the patient's needs. Throughout the process, we update family members on progress and listen carefully to address and questions orconcerns.
Intravenous, or IV, therapy has become a frequent treatment technique at skilled nursing facilities across the country. IV therapy is sometimes referred to as a drip since many IV therapy systems employ a drip chamber designed to prevent any air from entering the bloodstream. IV therapy offers numerous benefits, including correcting fluid imbalances and administering medications.
Many patients admitted to a hospital require some form of IV therapy, while some patients may need IV therapy on a long-term basis. As typical patient hospital stays are becoming shorter, IV therapy can be a valuable treatment method that is performed in an extended care facility under the direction of a physician and carried out by skilled nursing staff.
Hospice care provides medical services, emotional support and various other resources for patients who are in the last stages of a terminal illness such as cancer or heart failure. Hospice care also provides the patient's loved ones with the support they need to deal with the difficulties, as well as the emotional impact, of caring for a terminally ill patient. The primary goal of hospice care is to provide patients with the ability to pass on without pain and with dignity.

A wound is a break in the skin or tissues that may be caused by an accident, injury, surgery, disease or several other factors, and often involves bleeding, redness, swelling, pain, tenderness and other symptoms. They may occur nearly anywhere on the body. While many wounds can be treated at home by simply cleaning and bandaging the wound, more severe wounds may require professional care.
Many patients with skin ulcers, burns and other types of wounds face difficulty with the healing process for these troubling wounds, especially if the patient is diabetic. There are several different treatment options available for wounds resistant to conventional therapies. Some of these may include creams, ointments, synthetic skin grafts and other therapies that promote natural healing within the skin to avoid wound complications.
We are proud to offer patients many advanced solutions to their wound healing problems. It is important for wounds to remain clean and free of debris and bacteria in order to properly heal and prevent infection, so proper dressings that are changed on a regular basis are essential. We provide wound care treatment that is conducive to healing and helps lead toward a quick and efficient recovery, while keeping cosmetic concerns in mind as well.
Your doctor will determine which type of wound care is best for you after an initial evaluation of your wound size, location and severity.
Diabetic Wound Management
People with diabetes are at high risk for developing problems with their feet. Ulcers and other wounds commonly form on the bottom of the foot and can easily become infected or lead to other serious complications. Ulcers may develop as a result of poor circulation, lack of feeling in the feet, irritation or trauma.
Once a wound has been detected, it should be treated immediately in order to prevent complications from developing. Diabetic wound treatment focuses on relieving pressure from the area and removing dead skin cells and tissue through a process called debridement. The wound is then medicated and dressed to prevent infection and promote healing. For more severe wounds, patients may be required to wear special footwear or a brace to relieve pressure and irritation to the wound.
