Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing
If you are recovering from surgery or an injury or illness, our team of therapists and nurses can help you recover and work toward your goals of independence. Individuals seeking our assistance for rehabilitation are typically recovering from injuries/illnesses such as: stroke, cardiac conditions, pneumonia, falls, surgeries (hip/knee/ankle/shoulder) and many others.
Many of the individuals treated in our rehab unit are able to regain the skills necessary to return to their homes. So far, in 2008, 76% of the patients in our unit have returned home. Others have made the decision to reside at our facility. Click here to learn more...
