Meet Your Team
The specialists that specialize in you.
Our team of nurses is able to provide breathing treatments, IV medication, wound care, vaccinations, home visits and medication counseling and management. There’s always a nurse on call 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.
Certified Physical and Occupational therpaists meet with you to design a care plan that can include skilled therapy services. They will help you with building strength, after an injury and with maintaining your level of independence. You will also have access to wellness programming and services.
Our registered Dieticians will meet with you to discuss your individual dietary needs. They can recommend a menu that includes supplements and that can meet the needs of folks with diabetes, heart conditions, and more.
The social workers are advocates for you. They can assist with applications for benefits and can coordinate additional resources to meet all of your needs; in the center and in the community.
As a member of the interdisciplinary team, our physicians get to know you on a personal level. They manage your medical care and help you make decisions to stay healthy and independent in the community.
Our transportation will take you to and from the center each day and to all of your outside medical appointments. Our Chair-to-chair service means our drivers will meet you in your home, help you with your coat, and wait for you until your appointment is over.
