Short-Term Rehabilitation

We opened the Sosin Center for Rehabilitation in December 2016; the first Green House® certified nursing and short-term rehabilitation facility in western Massachusetts. Our caring professionals offer physical, occupational, and speech therapy in a warm, personal setting that’s designed to feel like home, focusing on helping each patient direct his or her own care.

The Sosin Center is divided into two “homes” of only 12 residents.  Each home has a designated caregiver team.  Our staff makes the effort to really get to know you and create an individualized care plan that best accommodates your specific needs as they help you achieve your rehabilitation goals.  Our comprehensive rehabilitation services ensure superior care to help you regain your strength and return home.


Spacious private rooms with full baths including walk-in showers, personal thermostats, modern furnishings, flat screen TV’s and large windows.


Each home has a kosher kitchen, an inviting dining room, a spacious living room, den, all-season screened porch, spa with Jacuzzi tub and personal laundry services. There is access to a courtyard garden, salon, coffee shop, gift shop, banking services and Michael’s Café, offering light kosher meals and snacks. Spiritual support offered, including Rabbi on-site and interfaith clergy.

Short-Term Rehabilitation Services

Our dedicated and compassionate staff bring extensive experience in their fields and we have access to a wide range of medical experts. Therapies include physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Specialized therapies include cardiac rehabilitation, orthopedic conditions, pulmonary rehabilitation, heart failure, wound care, neurological conditions, and complex medical conditions. Medication management as well as access to an on-site physician and nurse practitioner is provided.

Customized Care Plans

A core philosophy is that residents are a part of their own treatment planning. This optimizes recovery and helps reestablish independence. Our skilled staff provides daily assistance with all personal care needs and helps you seamlessly make the transition from the hospital back to your home after an illness, injury or surgery.


Men’s and women’s group, current event discussions, Veteran’s gatherings, movies, cookouts, pet visitations, a wide array of entertainment, concerts, art projects, music programs, poetry reading, religious services, bible study, bingo and holiday celebrations.


Kosher meals are served family-style in the dining room, where we encourage you to dine daily with the other residents – a wonderful opportunity to meet new people and socialize in a friendly atmosphere. Of course, you always have the option to eat in the privacy of your own room.

The Green House model

The Green House model offers superior medical care increased socialization, one-on-one contact with caregivers, fuller recoveries using less medication with fewer return trips to the hospital


I am very pleases with ALL the services at Sosin.  Lauren G. and Paul were super in their PT and OT work. All nurses were exemplary in helping me to deal with ongoing pain.  Kitchen gals were awesome…meals hot, choices of beverages and nutritious.  Choosing to eat at the big farm table was most beneficial to read and socialize.
