Admissions Process

At Townhouse we strive to make the admissions process as smooth as possible. Placing a loved one in a skilled nursing facility can be stressful and troublesome. Our goal is to guide you along the way. We urge families to come for a tour to obtain a better feel of our facility. Once the decision has been made to admit a patient to our facility, they will be assigned to a social worker who will ease the initial transition into the facility and will continue to be there to literally and figuratively hold their hand throughout their stay at Townhouse. Your social worker will also facilitate the admission process:

Individualized Care Plan

We will initiate and maintain constant communication with the social workers and case managers at the hospital, clarifying the patient’s needs and working together to transition your loved one to the competent care of Townhouse.

After our nursing department evaluates each patients specific needs, we will create an individualized plan of care to make the most of their time here.

Screening

Upon completion of the Nursing assessment, rehab patients will be screened by representatives of the Rehabilitation Department. This usually occurs within 24 hours of admission. The focus of the initial evaluation is to establish their current functional ability, prior level of independence and personal goals. From the moment you enter our facility for short term rehabilitation, our primary focus is to work towards your safe discharge home. The amount of therapy provided is determined on an individual basis.

Personal Preferences

The social work department will assess and address social and emotional needs.

Information provided by the hospital is reviewed by all relevant caregivers to ensure that every patient receives the maximum care they need and deserve.

Every resident’s personal preferences will also be noted and we will try our best to accommodate them. From dietary preferences to room location we will go out of our way to ensure that your comfort is our priority.

Feel free to call with any inquiries regarding sub-acute rehab, long-term or respiratory care.
