Subacute Care Services are provided by trained and experienced physicians, licensed nurses and certified nursing assistants who work hand-in-hand to provide a highly intensive level of care.
Our nursing staff is comprised of highly skilled professionals who deliver expert care in a variety of areas.
This highly individualized program is delivered by competent Certified Nursing Assistants under the direction of the Registered Rehabilitation Nurse, as an adjunct to other therapies or on its own. Rehab nursing is integral in enabling our residents to recuperate faster and to achieve and maintain a level of maximum functionality.
Hospice is a concept of care that provides for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of residents living with life-limiting illnesses. The goal is to ease the resident’s passage from life by alleviating pain and controlling symptoms, in addition to supporting families and loved ones.
Following discharge from hospital or while in our facility, some residents continue to require intravenous fluids or medications. Our nurses deliver these services competently and safely in our home-like environment, thus decreasing the frequency of hospital visits and impediments to the resident’s quality of life.

“I had hip replacement surgery and came to your facility. This event became the best thing that has happened to me in a long time. Because of the type of surgery I had my movements were very restricted. I felt very despondent because I have never been so incapacitated in my life. My nurse was terrific. She took care of me as if I was a member of her family is the best way to put it without sounding maudlin or sentimental. Thanks for the terrific care I received there and I would recommend your institution to anybody.”
