Skilled Nursing Care

Whether the need is short or long term, if additional healthcare support is required for your loved one, our skilled nursing facility is ready. Althea Woodland provides nursing care from a dedicated team of professionals, focusing on the special needs of each individual. Our residents receive 24 hour nursing care, which can include partial or total support with activities of daily living, as well as occupational, speech,  and physical therapy programs designed to minimize time needed in the facility. Special skin care and other therapeutic interventions are also available.

We offer a wide variety of services to support the individual needs of our residents.  If memory care is a concern, we provide programs designed to maintain a high level of cognitive functionality. Speech therapists are available to help residents regain communication skills after a stroke or other debilitating medical event and our physical and occupational therapy staff are here to help your loved one regain the independence they deserve. Please see our rehabilitation page for more information.

Respite Care

Taking care of a loved one as they age is an admirable task that requires a high level of commitment and dedication. When life events happen that prevent one from maintaining that level of commitment, we’re here to help. Althea Woodland offers a comprehensive respite care program designed to provide care to your loved one for several days or weeks, depending on your need.  We have a specialized facility ready to address the specific requirements of your loved one if you are temporarily unable.

In the event of emergency, we can become your “planned” respite care provider. We’ll set up a program specifically designed to mitigate the risk factors you may be aware of and if an emergency arises, be ready to receive your loved one into our facility.

Respite services help sustain caregiver health and well being, and can provide additional support that may be unavailable otherwise. Feel free to contact us for more information.
