We strive to create social programs and individualized activities to match the capabilities and needs of each resident. This also has a powerful impact in the healing process of those residents involved in some type of rehabilitation. Specific activities include: active resident councils, musical performances, current events update, reading the newspaper, singing exercises, fitness activities, stretching exercises, religious meetings, outside entertainment, games, trivia, history, and volunteer involvement. We also strongly encourage families to participate with the residents in various activities. See the News section on our home page for upcoming events.
A monthly calendar is posted to keep residents informed of upcoming events such as birthday parties, movies, musical programs, outings, candlelight dinners, ice cream socials and other special events. We always welcome friends and families to visit and attend our special events.
Our social service team assists both residents and their families during transitional periods. They also provide essential information, manage requests and concerns, help in care and discharge planning for each resident. They can arrange professional services for: Dental, Vision, Podiatry, Audiology, Power of Attorney, Dementia assessment, Psychosocial and Psychiatric Evaluation, and Individual therapy.
Should you wish to have Achieve Rehab and Nursing Center wash the laundry of your loved one, please notify the front office upon admission. However, if a family member or caregiver is going to take care of the laundry at home, please let the nursing station know your plans. This way, the staff can place a sign on the closet door notifying our housekeeping staff to leave the clothing for the family or caregiver to pick up.
Please be aware that all personal clothing is washed in an industrial washing machine at a temperature of 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure your loved ones’ clothing is appropriate for washing and drying in these hot temperatures. Avoid bringing clothing that requires cold or warm water, special care, or is subject to damage and fading.
Achieve Rehab and Nursing Center requires that all clothing must be labeled, and our staff will take care of this for you. This includes socks, shoes, and other personal items. Clothing will be labeled with the resident’s name, NOT their room number or initials. These labels will be marked clearly and in large letters on the inside neckline or waistband, for example.
We recommend approximately five changes of clothing and a pair of comfortable rubber-soled shoes. All articles should be washed, clearly labeled with resident’s name in permanent ink and entered into the residents’ personal inventory log in the medical chart. Other personal items should be marked or engraved for identification. We advise that residents do not keep valuable jewelry or large amounts of cash in the facility.
Although we do not have a formal policy stating visitation guidelines, we suggest using the common areas of the facility to meet with your loved one. If it is not possible to visit in one of the common areas, we suggest a limit of one to three people in a resident room at one time.
You may reserve the activities lounge for any special events (birthday, holidays, meals) with notice.
We encourage children to visit, however, we ask you to alert the charge nurse to anyone visiting the facility under the age 12.
We would love for your family pet to come visit. Please remember to clean up after them and take the proper safety measures at all times. All pets are to be kept on a leash and should have all current vaccinations.
Achieve Rehab and Nursing Center has several nurse practitioners on staff that are present at the facility almost every day.
Physicians generally see residents upon admission and once every 30 days thereafter. Some insurance companies require that physicians visit more often. Additionally, our nursing professionals are in constant contact with all of the physicians that visit the facility. Please check with our nursing staff for further information.
