Skilled Nursing Care
Following hospitalization for surgery, illness, or injury, medical needs may be complex and require the skills provided by our interdisciplinary team to facilitate recovery through short term rehabilitation and to aid in the transition from hospital to home. Our team is comprised of licensed nurses, certified nursing assistants, physical, occupational and speech language pathology therapists, licensed social worker, registered dietitian, and activity director.
Long Term Care
For residents who require extended care, the team provides an environment to maintain current level of function while enriching their lives with varied social and recreational activities. Long term residents who are hospitalized may return with medical needs that are complex and in need of our skilled nursing services provided by our interdisciplinary team.
Short Term Care
Also know as sub-acute or transitional care, short term rehab care is generally for less than 30 days following hospitalization for an acute illness. The resident usually returns home after this stay. Skilled Nursing Services are utilized to prepare the resident for the return home.
Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech-Language Pathology services are offered.
These services are available 7 days per week, 365 days per year.
The Rehabilitation Department is involved in the skilled care of residents with a variety of needs and diagnoses (short-term rehab/sub-acute care/long term care).
All residents are screened and evaluated by a therapist within 24 hours of referral.
Rehabilitation professionals are involved in care planning, family meetings and discharge planning.
This service enables families who are caring for a frail elder at home to take some time off. It is paid for privately.
Phillips Manor contracts with a local hospice provider for the purpose of providing specialized care and support for residents and families faced with end of life issues.
