Roadway Under Construction, But Facility Is Open For Business

Our experienced and caring interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, nutritional services, social workers, administrative staff, environmental services, physical, occupational and speech therapists are committed to achieving and maintaining the maximum health potential for each of our patients and residents; and a smooth transition for our short-term patients returning home.

Short-Term Rehab

Our multi-disciplinary team is dedicated to achieving outstanding results through our outcome-oriented, individualized treatment programs.

We offer physical, occupation and speech therapy 5 to 6 days a week based of the physicians plan of care. Each resident receives a custom recovery plan, designed to recover and maximize their independence when engaging in daily living activities. Our Pathway to Home Program may offer an outpatient rehabilitation program to those that have completed their stay at Glades Health Care Center, but have a continued need for further therapy on an ongoing basis.

• Occupational Therapy
• Physical Therapy
• Speech Therapy

We accept Medicare, various commercial insurances such as CarePlus, Humana and more.

Pathway to home

The Pathway to Home Program is designed to assist residents with a safe transition back to the community as soon as possible. Upon admission, a member of our interdisciplinary team will schedule a Partners in Care meeting with the resident and their family, we will discuss the care, goals and projected stay for the resident.

Once it has been determined the resident’s goal is to return home, our interdisciplinary team will evaluate, assess, and provide training and education to promote and assist with an appropriate and safe discharge. It is our goal to have all residents, whether long-term or short-term, obtain and maintain their highest level of function and independence.

The Standardized Rehabilitation Outcomes Program is designed for the short stay rehab patients. It provides measurable data on each patients’ progress and functional gains made during the rehabilitative stay at our facility. The therapists are certified to complete a standardized outcome on all short term rehab patients that was created and endorsed by the American Health Care Association (AHCA) as well as the National Association in Support of LTC (NASL).
