Therapy Services

Subacute rehabilitation serves as a bridge between the hospital and home by way of providing care and helping patients overcome the challenges of recovering from an injury, illness, or surgery.
Our specialized rehabilitation program incorporates both therapy and nursing and includes physical, occupational and speech therapies. We provide a wide range of supplementary services that are overseen by a board-certified physician of physical medicine.
Our rehabilitation center has therapy services available seven days a week.

We offer many hours of therapy on a daily basis, 7 days a week. Each resident receives a custom recovery plan, designed to recover and maximize and restore their independence when engaging in daily living activities.

Wound Care

Wounds can be devastating. They can really disrupt a patient’s entire rehab or recovery and lead to further complications. At Buena Vida, we do more than most skilled nursing centers in the region to control this terrible problem. Upon arrival, patients receive a comprehensive assessment to look for any indication of a skin breakdown. Patients’ nutritional needs are examined to determine if any supplementation is needed to heal or prevent a wound from occurring. If a wound develops, the Buena Vida team has the expertise to address the problem and quickly begin the healing process.
