Coming To Our Center

Now that you have made an informed decision about the care that is right for you, let’s discuss what to expect at our skilled nursing & rehabilitation center.

What will I do at a Nursing & Rehabilitation Facility?

  • Participate in a therapy program
  • Participate in your normal daily routine, such as dressing and grooming
  • Use individual and group leisure activities to help you resume normal activities
  • Eat meals with others in the dining room or café. You may also order Room Service
  • Work with Staff to plan your transition home

How is skilled nursing & rehabilitation different from the hospital?

  • You will want to wear your own regular and comfortable clothes.
  • You can use your own personal care items – soap, shampoo, shaving supplies, facial care items, cosmetics, hair dryer, etc.
  • If you’re most comfortable sleeping with your own bed pillow & blanket (comforter, throw) – bring them with you for a good night’s sleep.
  • If keeping a schedule is important, you may want to bring a watch with you.
  • You will be followed by your personal or Genesis Physician who will visit you within 2-days of your admission. Physicians make regular patient visits during a skilled nursing & rehab stay. You will see a physician less frequently than when you were acutely ill in the hospital.
  • You may have visitors when you want them but keep in mind the needs of other patients, your rehab schedule & your need for rest to regain your optimal health as quickly as possible.
  • Wireless internet service is available if you want to bring a laptop with you. You will want to take responsibility for keeping your computer secure.
  • Use this time to enjoy your favorite relaxing leisure activities – consider bringing books, DVDs, iPod, personal CD player or cards with you, or the Center will have many choices as well.
  • You may want your family or friends to launder your clothing. But of course, the Center can take care of this for you as well.
