Short Term Rehabilitation

Short term rehabilitation or rehab helps individuals recovering from strokes, illnesses, surgical procedures or injuries by focusing on establishing a patient's prior level of function so they may successfully return home or to an improved level of care.

Our licensed occupational, physical and speech therapists work full time for Bethlen Home in the state-of-the-art rehabilitation suite providing consistent, progressive care in a familiar environment.
Patients also work with a care team of experts from nursing, social services, dietary and others. We offer in-home evaluations to assess the individual situation and can arrange for home health care when patients return home.

Our private bathrooms and showers for each individual room afford patients the privacy they deserve.

Long Term Skilled Care

The Bethlen Home provides individualized skilled nursing care in a home-like atmosphere making each resident as comfortable as possible. The nursing staff includes registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and certified nursing assistants who share the goal that each resident or short-term rehabilitation patient achieve and maintain their optimal level of wellness.
In conjunction with the physician, a multidisciplinary team from Bethlen Home develops a Care Plan for each resident. Nurses offer expertise with health concerns involving:
 Sleep   Elimination
 Pain  Skin Care
 Immobility  Eating
 Confusion  Nutrition

Friendship Gardens

Friendship Gardens is Bethlen Home's secure specialty care wing. The very caring and professional staff offer a great deal of support and encouragement to residents and their families.

 Friendship Gardens offers several unique, personalized features. Some include:
  • Indoor and outdoor secure circulation pathways, which allow residents to walk freely without getting lost.
  • A beautiful simulated fireplace to give a homelike feel to the environment.
  • Country Kitchen and Living Room for these residents privately.
  • Specialized activity area with carefully-designed and provided activities.

The specialty care wing often feels like an independent entity of Bethlen Home. The staff in that wing stay within that wing, creating a protected, familiar, and nurturing environment for  residents dealing with dementia issues.
