More Than A Nursing Home: Short-Term Care, Long-Term Care, And Skilled Nursing Options For Seniors Recovering From Surgery Or Illness
When seniors who normally live independently are involved in an accident causing serious injuries or are recovering from an illness or surgery, they may need more support in their daily living than they would usually require. When this happens it is difficult to think about losing your independence and being placed in a nursing home. Luckily, today’s seniors have many more options than a traditional nursing home. Seniors who are recovering from injuries, illness, or surgery often find short-term care, long-term care, or skilled nursing to be the perfect solution to meet their needs.
Short-Term Care & Respite Care
Mease Manor provides short-term care, rehabilitation services, and respite care through our Mease Continuing Care center. Our goal is to use our services to help people get back to their lives as quickly as possible. We personalize every rehabilitation and care plan to ensure we meet the needs of our patients on an individual timetable. Short-term rehabilitation plans may include:
- Training in mobility, gait stability, posture, and positioning
- Exercise programs to increase muscle function, coordination, and endurance
- Joint and soft tissue mobilization to increase range of motion
- Wound care
- Pain management
Mease Continuing Care is our care option selected after an illness or injury in which our social services team works closely with physicians and family members for any additional services the patient may require at home, such as home care or durable medical equipment. Our short-term assisted living services and respite care are available for patients whose caregivers are ill or who cannot stay home alone, or who are looking to transition from skilled nursing or rehabilitation to a permanent residence in assisted living. We also offer short-term stays for spouses of a patient living in our independent living residences so they can remain close to their loved one who is receiving skilled care at Mease Manor or a nearby hospital.
Skilled Nursing & Long-Term Care
Mease Continuing Care offers skilled nursing services for patients who need a greater level of care while recovering from a recent hospital stay, illness, or surgery, or who need care for a longer period of time. Skilled nursing services are available for post-operative care, diabetic management, wound care, pain management, conditioning and strengthening, and IV therapy. Mease Continuing Care is committed to providing the highest level of skilled nursing and long-term care with our compassionate staff. Our skilled nursing amenities include:
- Three meals daily, plus snacks
- Daily and weekly housekeeping, including linens and towels
- Private and semi-private rooms with electric beds
- Local telephone and standard TV
- On-site diagnostic services
- Emergency call system
- Licensed nursing staff 24/7
We are committed to integrating all aspects of an individual’s care including their physical, social, spiritual, and emotional well-being. Our nurses, therapists, activities professionals, social services personnel, and culinary staff work together to enrich our resident’s lives every day.
