In their words: VHS residents share life stories for Skilled Nursing Care Week
It’s National Skilled Nursing Care Week (May 14-20)! We are spotlighting some of our VHS Residents at Virginia Health Services’ seven nursing and rehabilitation centers.
We offer skilled nursing and long-term care, and in-house rehabilitation services. The individual and their physician will determine what is the best fit.
Virginia Health Services’ nursing and rehabilitation centers have amenities such as onsite salon and barber shops, regular activities and food programs, and nutritional dining services.
From the start, our Residents and their families meet with our team members to establish a plan of care. A Resident Navigator will help introduce individuals and their loved ones to the facility and ease the transition process.
The interdisciplinary care plan team includes our nursing staff, social workers, recreational professionals, therapists and dieticians. The individuals in our care know from the time they arrive, they will be helped in living their best life.
A team of physical, occupational and speech therapists from VHS Rehabilitation will work with individuals to recover from injury or help with daily life skills. Each facility has a therapy room onsite.
Memory Care is offered at our Gloucester facility, Walter Reed, with a secured unit, consistent staff, and dining, recreation and relaxation areas for memory-impaired Residents.
Our private and semi-private rooms at all of our facilities are furnished, and wi-fi is available throughout the buildings. There are landscaped courtyards for relaxing outdoors.
Our Residents are welcome to bring touches from home to make their space feel cozier.
VHS OFFERS AN ARRAY OF NURSING AND REHABILITATION SERVICES
When care needs become too much to go home, our long-term care provides a safe environment. Residents in long-term care benefit from daily help with toileting, dressing, bathing, eating, and have ambulatory and other health issues that require constant care and supervision.
If an individual needs a brief recovery period (less than 2 weeks) following an illness, accident, surgery or other medical problem, Virginia Health Services offers respite – or short-term nursing care. We also offer respite care for individuals whose families need additional caregiving support during emergencies or vacations.
VHS has a dedicated Memory Care program at Walter Reed Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Gloucester. Memory Care is provided in a special secure unit to protect memory-impaired Residents, including individuals with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Individualized care is provided in an environment designed specifically for Memory Care residents by a specially trained staff who understand the needs of this unique population. Memory care units are typically staffed at higher levels to ensure resident needs are met.
