A - Team Approach

The interdisciplinary team works together to ensure our residents are treated in a holistic manner and to ensure goals are met.

The team is composed of the resident and the physicians, nurses, nursing assistants, physical and occupational therapists, rehabilitative aides, dietitians, pharmacists, social worker, case coordinator and activity/recreation specialists. The team is committed to helping the resident reach the level required to function safely after discharge.

Nursing Staff

The nursing staff is comprised of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and certified nursing assistants. They assist residents in bathing, dressing and completing daily living activities. They also assist residents in walking to and from the bathroom. We strongly encourage our residents to walk to the dining room/lounge for lunch or dinner, visit with family and friends, and to make use of the recreational amenities available in the dining room/lounge.

Case Coordination

The case coordinator is a social worker or nurse who helps plan for discharge and follow-up services like home care and equipment.
