"I truly enjoyed my stay at the Memorial Hospital Skilled Nursing Unit.
The rehab therapists are wonderful and I looked forward to going to rehab every day.
My meals were very good. I enjoyed the activities that were offered, especially the
country breakfast. Location was a major factor in making my stay at the Memorial
Hospital Skilled Nursing Unit a more pleasurable experience as my family and friends
were able to visit daily."

Enhancing Quality of Life
The goal of specialized rehabilitation is to help residents attain their maximum
potential and restore the abilities and confidence essential to independent living.
Physical Therapists assist in body strengthening, mobility, flexibility, and gait
training to prevent injury and to help patients in their recovery.
Occupational Therapists assist in performing activities of daily living.
Speech Language Pathologists help with cognition, speech, and language to help patients and families communicate.
All therapists strive to maximize the patients potential and help families understand and assist with limitations.
Our residents enjoy socialization in one of our two dining rooms that feature buffet
style dining. The registered dietician visits with each resident to obtain food preferences and
develops their individualized menu. Staff is available to serve and assist residents at meals.
In working closely with physicians, residents and their families, nursing is able
to offer the highest quality of care to enhance the quality of life of the residents.
Our Social Workers closely assist residents and their families throughout their stay.
Social workers are available to provide individual, group, or family assistance and
act as a liaison and advocate for the resident. The social workers also assist in
facilitating a safe, planned discharge.
