Being unable to perform ordinary, everyday tasks is life-changing. It not only impacts the person unable to perform the tasks but their family. When your loved one reaches this stage, do you know what to do or where to go?
In this situation, families need to react calmly and assess their options. This is a time to slow down and ensure that you are making the best decision for your loved one.
When you are unable to keep your loved one at home, you will likely be looking for a skilled nursing facility. This is where Hickory Heights Health and Rehab comes in.
Hickory Heights specializes in providing short-term rehabilitation and long-term care services in a safe, comfortable, relaxing environment. The facility has a light-filled common area, reading library, and secure, lush outdoor courtyards with large patios and a putting green, and a unique, open floor plan with four distinct halls, each with its own dining hall, kitchen and neighborhood feel.
The facility provides both private and semi-private rooms for residents. The rooms offer a wide range of amenities, including flat screen televisions, free wireless internet, individual climate controls, daily housekeeping and laundry services, and private telephone connections.
While at Hickory Heights, residents will never get bored. There are daily activities and social events that will keep everyone occupied and happy.
The short-term rehab center’s team of nurses, therapists and support staff work closely together to develop a plan based on the individual needs of each person. They utilize the latest programs, techniques and modalities for strengthening, balance training, pain reduction, wound healing, and increasing range of motion, and offer their services six days a week. When the goal is to return home, the patient’s prior level of function is a key element that our social services and nursing staff strive to obtain upon admission to ensure a safe transition back to home.
Meals are a vital part in patients’ health and social well-being. Family participation in group activities, meals and celebrating family birthdays and special days is strongly encouraged.
