Skilled & Intermediate (Long Term) Nursing Care
Registered and licensed nurses and certified nursing assistants provide 24 hour care. Services include medication management, food and nutritional evaluation, and specialized dietary support. Each resident is assessed and a plan of care is designed by an interdisciplinary team. This team includes the medical director, nurses, social worker(s), rehabilitation therapist(s), activities coordinator and dietitian. Clients are monitored for changes in condition and plans of care are altered based on regular ongoing assessments. Stimulating and meaningful social and recreational activities are offered daily to residents and adult day health participants alike.
Other specialized services include advanced wound care, diabetes support, IV therapy, enteral nutrition, and pain management.
Families can benefit from a needed break from their caregiver duties by taking advantage of our short term stay options. Those who come to us for respite care may receive help with their medications, assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s- eating, bathing, dressing, grooming, toileting) and personalized care planning.
We work collaboratively with hospice providers to provide a nurturing and supportive environment so that residents may spend their final days in comfort.
