DOES MY LOVED ONE NEED SKILLED NURSING?

Encore’s Skilled Nursing services help your loved one heal quickly with the goal of regaining their independence and returning home as soon as possible.

 

Skilled Nursing at Encore offers the highest quality of daily medical care available outside of a hospital for 24-hour monitoring and on-going treatment plans for residents. Our medical staff of certified nurses, aides, physicians, and therapists provides customized care for residents, including those recovering from surgery, a hospital stay, or an acute extended illness, and even those in need of long-term medical care.

 

Our skilled medical personnel deliver personalized treatment plans for each resident agreed upon by the physician, resident, and family. Realistic goals are set based on the resident’s unique medical and rehabilitative needs.

 

DOES MY LOVED ONE NEED REHABILITATION?

The Encore community offers innovative rehabilitation services for those in need of short or long-term therapy. Rehab services are always prescribed by a physician for those who meet the criteria, which includes a 3-midnight stay in a Medicare-approved hospital.

THERAPY REDEFINED

At Encore, we partner with skilled and compassionate therapists from Delta Rehab to help residents recover in three vital areas: body, mind, and speech. Our state-of-the art, spacious therapy gym offers technologically advanced, senior-specific equipment needed for effective, fast recovery.

 

Our experienced therapists tailor their skilled-treatment approach to each patient, taking the time to understand their unique medical needs to create a custom recovery plan. While treating each person individually, a foundation of trust is built, allowing them to feel comfortable and fully recover at a pace that’s best for them.

 

To ensure a smooth process, we openly encourage families to be a part of their loved ones’ recovery plan to ensure all concerns are alleviated and solutions are agreed upon prior to treatment.
