Long-Term Care

Long-term care is needed when the care needs of an individual have exceeded what can be provided in the home or in any other setting such as assisted living. Units are focused on an individual’s care needs. Activities are designed to assist residents and meet them where they are.

Short-Term Rehab

For those times when you need additional therapy or medication management post hospital stay with the goal of returning home. Short-term rehab gives you the confidence to return to life as you know it, despite post-surgical fatigue or a new deficit. Physical, occupational, speech, cardiac, orthopedic, and pulmonary therapy can all be part of a short-term rehab plan.
