The services that Heartland Rehabilitation and Care Center offers include skilled nursing care, short-term rehabilitation, dining, recreation and social services, states Heartland. Other services are physical therapy, speech therapy and restoration therapy.
The short-term rehabilitation service provides transitional care between hospital and home. This service takes into consideration a resident's physical, spiritual and social needs, explains Heartland. The aim is to assist the client in achieving independence. Recreational activities include religious services, playing piano, singing, bingo, arts and crafts. Residents choose their own set of activities so that their awareness can improve. Residents also play roles in social events, such as birthday parties, field activities and community-supported activities.
The institution conducts physical therapy to improve the condition of residents with impairments and disabilities. Therapists carry out examination, diagnosis and physical interventions, states Heartland. These short-term services are available for residents who have undergone hip or knee replacement, stroke or bone fracture. Speech therapy is available for residents who have experienced accidents that have interfered with their speech and swallowing.
Once therapists have completed their sessions, trained restorative aides help to ensure that patients reach full recovery, explains Heartland. Dining services give residents a homelike feel by allowing them to choose what to eat. Other services include Medicare, Medicaid, 24-hour comprehensive nursing, wander guard services, hospice services and IV therapy.
