Rehabilitation

A Variety of Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Services to Meet Patient Needs

Rehab 1 cropped for website Patients recovering from joint replacement, fractures, trauma, cardiac conditions, stroke or other neurological impairments will generally require some form of rehabilitative services following their hospital stay in order to complete their recovery.

Today, more than 80 percent of rehabilitation nursing  admissions are patients requiring short-term rehabilitative care. Mount Vernon Nursing and Rehabilitation Center’s  rehabilitative treatments may  include speech, physical, or occupational therapy, depending on the nature and severity of the condition. In addition to prescribed therapies, we also offer a wide range of social and recreational activities to complement each individual’s therapeutic care plan.

We understand that certain chronic illnesses and conditions that generally require rehabilitation nursing are more prevalent in the elderly. Stroke, joint replacement, hip fractures, and conditions resulting from spinal or muscular degeneration are just a few examples. Regardless of the overall health of the individual, the overriding goal of MVNRC’s geriatric rehabilitation is the same: to help each person reach the highest levels of form, function and independence he or she is capable of achieving.

MVNRC provides the accommodations, therapeutic tools and support services needed to meet the specialized requirements of our geriatric rehab patients. We also have a team of social work, case management and administrative professionals to assist you and your family with housing, family, financial and other community re-entry issues, should they arise.
