Mennonite Home provides 24-hour, post-op, short-term, and long-term services and support, including inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services, end of life care, and ongoing, 24-hour care for residents who can benefit from a fully-supported environment.
Inpatient Rehabilitation Services:
Everyone is not able to discharge directly from the hospital to home. We provide 24 hour short-term skilled nursing and rehabilitation services to help people transition from the hospital to their home or alternate living situation. To avoid re-hospitalizations, some insurances will cover skilled care without a hospitalization if certain criteria are met.
Our licensed physical, occupational, and speech/swallow therapists and licensed nurses work with each person’s medical needs and goals. Therapists work with residents in our therapy gym, in the resident’s room, and throughout the facility. Under a plan of care approved by the physician, therapists use best practices and evidence-based protocols including but not limited to the use of shortwave diathermy, the omnicycle, therapeutic ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and the OmniVR – a virtual rehabilitation system which utilizes virtual reality to make therapy more fun and rewarding.
To assist with preparation for discharge, the discharge planner is able to make referrals to a variety of resources, including but not limited to, home-health agencies, out-patient therapy, in-home care companies, community resource agencies, and durable medical equipment companies.
Our commitment as a Christ-centered community is to provide life-enriching services and fun to fulfill the spiritual, physical, and emotional dimensions of those we serve. A wide range of programs are offered to meet individual interests, including: outdoor gardening and scenic walks; cooking and baking; art and music; pet therapy; and brain fitness activities. On Sundays, residents can attend Christian ecumenical services held in our chapel. (See Chaplaincy Services.)
Our staff includes registered and licensed nurses, certified nursing assistants, certified medication assistants, a chaplain, a consultant dietician, a consultant pharmacist, an admission coordinator/insurance liaison, and a discharge planner/social services worker. Staff members are carefully selected and given ongoing education and support throughout their careers.
Dining options include sharing the company of others in the dining room, and in-room dining. The menu offers a variety of choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The always available menu can be ordered 24 hours a day.
Mennonite Home is known for extraordinary service, compassion, and our culture of individualized resident-directed care. The proof is in our reputation and resident satisfaction for more than 70 years.
