SKILLED NURSING

Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation in North Richland Hills

Emerald Hills Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center offers compassionate and personal skilled nursing care and rehabilitation services to seniors in the North Richland Hills area. Our skilled nursing facility provides both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care at the highest standards. We are committed to providing individualized care of excellent quality with outstanding results.

Skilled nursing is a residential alternative to a nursing home, which provides custodial care that includes getting in and out of bed, and providing assistance with feeding, bathing and dressing. This living option differs from our other levels of care in that we provide the highest level of medical attention and care. A physician over sees the patient’s care, a nurse practitioner manages subtle and acute health changes, and a skilled nurse is always on the premises, available 24-hours a day.

In addition to long-term skilled nursing care, we also provide short term rehabilitation care after a surgery or traumatic medical experience, such as a stroke or heart attack. Due to these medical conditions a person may need more care and attention and we can provide all of the necessary medical treatments. Let us help you or your loved one heal in a warm and comforting environment.

Our skilled nursing program is committed to empowering each resident through individualized programs to reach goals of increased independence. We provide as much autonomy as possible within an environment that nurtures and supports. Our specialized staff offers physical, speech, and occupational therapies, wound and IV care, and much more.

Our focus is to create a warm and inviting skilled nursing facility in which patients will thrive and heal. Residents’ days are filled with comfort, independence and meaning as they work towards recovery.

REHABILITATION

Rehabilitation in North Richland Hills

Meeting Virtually Any Rehabilitation Need

Life can deliver some unexpected twists: accidents, sudden illnesses or emergency surgeries can happen when you least expect them. In the aftermath of such events, your energy is focused primarily on recovery—trying to also find the best available resources for help can be pretty challenging.

We understand the intense desire to recuperate and get back to normal as quickly as possible. But serious illness or trauma can sometimes force you to relearn even basic functions.

That’s when our teams of experts can make an overwhelming difference. Our skilled therapy services can hasten your recovery, help return lost skills and bring back strength and mobility. Our caring professionals work tirelessly with our residents not only in physical areas, but also by constantly supporting and encouraging them emotionally.

We believe our residents are the extraordinary people who refuse to allow temporary setbacks or disabilities to affect them permanently. Their determination and effort become invaluable tools in the rehabilitation process.

    REHABILITATION

    And it is our greatest privilege to partner with them—or you, or your loved one—during recovery … and become your strongest advocates in the road to reclaiming total wellness.

    A physical therapist will create a plan of care to help you improve your strength, balance and endurance. An occupational therapist will work with you to master activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation and other skills. A speech therapist is available to work with you in the areas of swallowing, speech, memory and cognition.

    Our advanced physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy services are aimed at helping you regaining your strength and mobility, and getting you back to your full health.

    Our skilled nursing staff works around the clock to deliver expert care with a personal touch. Physical, occupational & speech therapy is available on an inpatient and outpatient basis.

    We focus on caring for patients with many conditions including, but not limited to:

    • Joint replacement
    • Orthopedic injuries
    • Stroke and neurological conditions
    • Cardiac-related problems
    • Pulmonary impairment
    • Diabetes management
    • Post-surgery recovery
    • Wound care

    SHORT TERM REHABILITATION

    Short-term Rehabilitation in North Richland Hills

    When you find yourself between hospital-level care and returning to your home and work, our short-term rehab program is the perfect place to regain your health and get back on your feet.

    Our short-term rehab services can help bridge-the-gap between the hospital and home and allow you to cultivate the necessary skills to lead an independent lifestyle.

    Our short term rehabilitation program specializes in treating patients who have experienced:

    Stroke
    Fractures
    Joint Replacements
    Amputations
    Circulatory Problems
    Post-Surgical Recovery
    Re-conditioning due to illness or injury

    Our short-term rehab program provides 24-hour skilled nursing care and a full range of rehabilitative services—respiratory therapy, intravenous therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy.

    Therapy Schedule

    The Short Term Rehab Program is intense and accelerated, and also tailored to the individual. It helps both inpatients and outpatients build strength and independence to allow individuals to achieve their maximum level of function before returning home. Your therapy schedule may include two or more individualized therapy sessions per day. During your stay, the therapists will have you practice, perform, and perfect all the skills you need before being discharged.

    Following the course of care, each patient is evaluated to determine their ability to continue living alone or with loved ones. Most rehabilitation patients return to their own homes or a Supported Living site following recovery.

    LONG TERM CARE

    North Richland Hills Long-Term Care

    For those unable to live independently at home we offer medically supervised long term care. Typically, people in need of this type of service require long-term, 24-hour care by a team of skilled clinicians including nurses, physical therapists, and occupational therapists. The most common needs of residents at skilled nursing centers include daily medical management, and assistance with activities of daily living.

    For patients requiring an extended placement, we honor the opportunity to help residents and families create a home for their loved one at our community. Our Restorative team works closely with the rehabilitation department to design individual programs for walking, strengthening, range of motion, pain management, and group exercises. Our long term care program offers specialized nursing care, diverse recreational activities and supportive social services catered to the resident’s individual needs. In addition, our physician will oversee your loved one’s medical care along with our interdisciplinary team of licensed professionals.

    We encourage family to become involved with us in creating a living space that has familiar items from home. Whatever your needs, we are here to help. For some residents, we are able to restore them to a level of function which enables them to return home. For those who cannot return home, we are committed to providing a warm and caring home and feel honored they chose to make our community their home.

    OUTPATIENT REHABILITATION

    Outpatient Rehabilitation in North Richland Hills

    Outpatient rehabilitation is used for people who are living safely at home, but require rehab therapy to help them live free of physical limitation or pain. In most instances, people require physical therapy; however, others may require occupational therapy, speech therapy, or some combination thereof. Whether an injury or illness occurred last week or years ago, our therapy team can you get back to doing the things you want to do. With expertise in areas ranging from single service orthopedic sprains, strains and post-operative care to comprehensive rehabilitation for neurological conditions, our goal is to help you decrease your pain, increase your functional abilities and improve your quality of life

    Your rehabilitation is a group effort, with a team of rehabilitation professionals supporting your progress. Physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, and licensed clinical social workers are all part of the care team. Board-certified physiatrists (doctors specializing in rehabilitation medicine) serve as the medical directors of our outpatient services.

    The referring physician is a key part of our team, and will be in communication with your therapist regarding your plan of care. Our program includes state-of-the-art technology and highly skilled therapists who provide one-on-one care.
