Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation
Skilled nursing, when paired with physical and cognitive therapy, delivers results aimed at recovery, comfort, and increased long-term independence. Because we understand the importance of autonomy in our residents’ lives, we make sure to assist our seniors just enough for them to begin living better on their own.
The care offered by the staff at our skilled nursing and rehabilitation center is one of our most sought-after services. In 2013, the Allegan County Medical Care Community had 119 admissions to our rehabilitation center.
We partner with area hospitals to provide intensive rehabilitation to residents experiencing debilitating health issues such as fractures, joint replacement, stroke, congestive heart failure and surgery. We provide therapies and training for short-term residents to return home as quickly as possible. Our residents’ sense of independence is important to a speedy recovery. Being in the comfort of their own homes, our residents can develop and improve their motor skills along with their confidence, which will help carry them through the recovery process.
