The Warde Approach

Discharging from a hospital to a rehabilitation setting can be a difficult process – you may be nervous or worried, with many questions. It’s our promise at Warde to reduce the stress on patients and families and make the transition as smooth and hassle-free as possible.

Our staff will:

  • Work with case managers, providers and family members to streamline admission.
  • Clearly explain the process from admission to discharge.
  • Help you understand your payment options, including Medicare and commercial health insurance coverage.
  • Put together your own rehab team that works in coordination with your surgeon or primary care physician.
  • Give you the highest level of privacy possible.
  • Be available when you need us to answer questions and address concerns.

Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Services are often provided after:

  • General or cardiac surgery
  • Joint replacement and orthopedic surgery
  • Cardiac events and interventions (such as stent insertions or treatment for congestive heart failure)
  • Strokes
  • Respiratory Issues

We also provide complex nursing care for a wide range of chronic and acute medical conditions.

Warde’s rehabilitation services are provided by licensed Physical, Occupational and Speech-Language Therapists. In addition, our team includes Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants (COTAs) and Physical Therapy Assistants (PTAs).

Having a complete therapy team allows patients to benefit from an integrated approach to therapy. Consistent, repetitive therapy is important for an effective and timely recovery. Rehabilitation services in a skilled nursing center provide the opportunity to receive therapy more than once a day and at times that are optimal for you. Warde offers patients flexibility, in addition to the highest level of services.

Physical Therapy is provided by licensed Physical Therapists (PTs) who evaluate each patient and design a custom activity and exercise plan that builds strength and improves range of motion of limbs and joints. PTs help reduce pain, restore functional ability and prevent disability.

Occupational Therapy is provided by licensed Occupational Therapists (OTs) who perform evaluations and help customize therapy that improves the patient’s abilities to perform daily tasks, ranging from self-care to recreational or occupational activities. In addition, OTs design treatment plans and assist patients in improving function, visual, cognitive and general coordination skills. The ultimate goal of occupational therapy is to facilitate a patient’s ability to perform with the highest degree of independence possible.

Speech-Language Therapy is provided by licensed Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) who address communication, cognition and dysphagia (swallowing) deficits that may be due to injury, illness or chronic decline. SLPs provide therapeutic interventions to improve receptive and expressive communication disorders, cognitive-communication disorders and speech impairments due to various types of medical conditions and disorders. SLPs also establish communication systems for patients with hearing impairments, and for those requiring alternative communication systems. Additionally, SLPs play a primary role in the evaluation and treatment of adults with swallowing disorders.

With today’s shorter hospital stays, many individuals require additional therapy and skilled nursing services for a short time following discharge from the hospital. Often, the necessary services are not practical to be provided at home. Warde provides short-term skilled nursing care and rehabilitation therapy that can help enable a safe, effective and quick return to independence.

If you have Medicare coverage, you may qualify for the Medicare Skilled Nursing benefit. If you have commercial health insurance through an employer, you may also be eligible for skilled nursing services. Coverage should be verified through your insurance provider or the hospital’s discharge planner. If you have any questions regarding payment, please contact our Business Office Manager or Social Worker at 603-890-1290.
