In addition to our short term and long-term care services, Colonial Nursing and Rehab offers specialized services. At our facility we believe in a holistic approach to care by meeting the needs of our residents medically, socially and mentally. We understand there may be needs beyond short term or long-term care services and offer specialized services to meet the individual needs. Our specialized services include hospice and respite services.
Knowing that a loved one is suffering from a debilitating illness or possibly even nearing the end of their life, it is often very difficult to deal with mentally, physically and spiritually. The staff at Colonial Nursing and Rehab combines knowledge and empathy to help manage a patient’s symptoms and make the patient as comfortable as possible. Outside hospice providers may be able to offer further support if the Resident meets hospice criteria. Educating and comforting the family is also part of end of life care services provided by our staff
Respite care is designed to relieve individuals or families involved in caring for a loved one who is no longer physically or mentally capable of taking care of themselves on a daily basis. Colonial Nursing and Rehab offers a respite care stay program that allows for caregivers to take a break and take care of themselves. Whether a caregiver must travel for business or recuperate from an illness or injury, we can relieve the burden of daily caregiving through our respite care program. Colonial Nursing and Rehab offers its full continuum of services including 24-hour nursing care, medication administration, daily meals and snacks, laundry services, planned activities and social services, during respite stays.
I was at Colonial nursing and rehab for short-term rehab. It is an awesome, wonderful and great place to be. All the services was at its highest level from checking in until my release. During my stay I receive the best care anyone can ask for. The nursing staff was the tops, excellent and very very caring. They made sure I got all my medicine on time. The CNA staff is so caring in taking care of me in every way. The food department was the greatest. Everything was very clean and all the staff was extremely helpful at every turn. The physical therapy staff was here to help me in my knee replacement recovery process. The physical therapy staff are awesome. They encouraged me every step of the way. Ms Shirley made the admission process easy. I pray that God will forever bless and keep everyone in his care at colonial nursing and rehab. Many thanks again I am home now and doing well thanks to The Colonial family! #colonialnursingandrehab Erline Brown
