SKILLED CARE

skilled nursing facility snf - worcester ma - continuum of careGetting back on your feet after surgery or an injury is not always easy. The Sub-Acute Rehabilitation Unit at Saint Francis Rehabilitation and Nursing Center offers progressive care with a personal touch. Individualized rehabilitation and nursing programs are designed for each patient to maximize independent functioning. We use advanced therapeutic techniques within an interdisciplinary team approach. Our approach is centered around a multi-disciplinary team of experienced board certified physicians, nurses, social workers, as well as physical, occupational, and speech therapists. We develop individualized care plans to meet your medical, social, and emotional needs. Our goal is to return patients to their former lives with dignity, self-confidence and independence.

Saint Francis Rehabilitation and Nursing Center meets the special needs of skilled-level patients with physical, occupational, speech, medical nutritional therapies, and IV therapy, combined with 24-hour nursing care. Whether provided for several weeks or several months, our physician-directed skilled health care services are designed to complement a hospital stay, or in some cases, to be a substitute for hospitalization.

ALZHEIMERS & DEMENTIA CARE

Saint Francis Rehabilitation and Nursing Center boasts the area's most comprehensive Dementia Unit. This unit offers a home-like secured environment that is specifically designed to lessen the stresses of everyday life and provides the therapeutic environment necessary to enable a person with memory loss or dementia to remain as independent and engaged as possible.

Our specially trained care professionals help individuals to realize their strengths instead of focusing on their losses. This type of encouragement comes on a daily basis from our caring and supportive staff who dedicate themselves to improving and maintaining the quality of life for our residents. Our residents are also encouraged to participate in all of the normal routines, as in their home, and are engaged by our staff to participate in a broad range of activities throughout the day. Our excellent activity program strives to provide an abundant life for residents seven days a week. Activity and nursing staff work closely together to meet the residents' unique physical and social needs.
