Skilled Nursing

Accommodations

Independence House offers both private and semi-private accommodations for our clients, and all rooms have private bathrooms.

Most clients requiring skilled nursing care will qualify for Medicare or other insurance which will cover the cost of skilled care. Medicare and most other insurance plans do not include the cost of a private room.

The daily rate includes room, meals, nursing service, personal service, laundry, housekeeping, and activity programs.

Independence House offers in-house physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy programs.

Television, Telephone and Spa

All rooms are equipped with TVs and cable at no additional cost, and all rooms have telephone lines. Clients may bring their phone sets from home or rent a phone from the facility.

A whirlpool and footbaths help to make our "spa" more comfortable. We believe this kind of treatment is "holistic" because it benefits the whole person. It helps our clients relax and feel less anxious.

Pharmacy

Independence House provides the following medication-related services to our clients:   

  • Drug interaction check to ensure that medications can be taken together
  • Individual medication packaging
  • Monthly medication review on every client conducted by a pharmacist
  • Nurse follow through with physicians and pharmacy on all medication orders and changes
  • 24 hour delivery of medication including emergency delivery
  • Monthly computerized individual medication records

Physicians

All clients who are admitted to Independence House skilled nursing must be under the direct care of a physician who must provide written orders for all medications, treatments and plan of care. We encourage the client's regular physician to continue this important role.
