If you have a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s, you understand the challenges of normal daily activities. Symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease may be further complicated by injuries, illness or end-of-life needs. We provide a nurturing and therapeutic environment where those with dementia or Alzheimer’s can receive the clinical and rehabilitation care they need in a safe and secure setting. We use the latest Alzheimer’s and dementia research to create individualized care plans and implement quality of life therapies such as healing touch, music therapy, and dementia-specific daily activities.
Post-hospital, post-acute, or short stay rehabilitation care is designed to improve a person’s transition back home following surgery, illness or injury. Short stay rehab residents no longer need the acute care setting of a hospital but still require a high level of clinical and rehabilitative care to ensure a speedy recovery. The goal of the program is to provide the highest level of rehabilitation and skilled nursing care to residents while facilitating the transition, as quickly and safely as possible, from hospital to home. Post-acute rehabilitation stays typically last twenty-one days or less.
Providing care for terminally ill family members and friends is exhausting, both emotionally and physically. There may come a time during the course of your family member’s illness that you as a caregiver need some time away from the tasks of care giving. Caregiver stress can lead to physical and emotional distress that can interfere with your ability to provide care. We partner with many hospice organizations to provide respite care stays. Respite care programs are designed to provide temporary, short-term (usually, five days or less) assistance in caring for hospice patients. It is intended to allow the caregivers, often the family members, to take some time away from the hospice patient, to allow them to emotionally recharge and become better prepared to handle the normal day-to-day challenges of caring for someone with a chronic life-threatening illness.
The role of the social worker in a long-term care facility is to enable each individual to function at the highest possible level of social and emotional wellness. For our short-term rehab patients, our social workers focus on facilitating discharge planning, including the coordination of home health or hospice services, equipment needs, and community services. For our long-term residents, our social workers help residents make the transition from living at home or in an assisted living community. Once a resident is admitted, the social worker assures the resident's continuing needs are met and that the person is given the opportunity to participate in planning for continued care in the facility, transfer, or discharge back into the community. Although the resident is the main focus, it should be noted that much of the social worker’s time may be spent working with the family.
