Skilled Nursing at Southwind offers the highest quality of daily medical care available outside of a hospital for 24-hour monitoring and on-going treatment plans for residents. Our medical staff of certified nurses, aides, physicians, and therapists provides all-around customized care for residents, including those recovering from surgery, a hospital stay, or an acute extended illness, and even those with long-term medical needs.
Our skilled medical caregivers design and deliver personalized treatment plans for each resident, all agreed on by the physician, resident, and family. Realistic goals are set based on the resident’s unique health and rehabilitative needs, and we encourage their success along the way.
The Southwind community offers innovative rehabilitation services, designed for meeting the goals of short or long-term therapy.
