Our transitional care hospitals (certified as long-term acute care hospitals) are unique in their ability to care for critically ill patients who require specialized, aggressive, goal- directed care over an extended period of recovery time. Our hospitals are licensed as acute care hospitals with an additional Medicare certification that supports a longer length of stay – usually weeks not days – as compared to the typical five day stay for patients in traditional hospitals. We offer specialized services and extended care for medically complex patients who are unable to fully recover in the short- term setting. Our hospitals have 24-hour physician support and the ancillary services found at an acute care hospital, including laboratory, radiology, pharmacies, operating or procedure rooms, special care units and telemetry units. Our specialized care includes pulmonary care (ventilator management and weaning), complex wound care, dialysis, IV antibiotic therapy and pain management.
From specialized short-term, inpatient rehabilitation to compassionate long-term care, Kindred Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers provide a full range of medical, rehabilitative and social services to treat and support each of our patients and residents. Our goal is to help each individual achieve positive outcomes, regain function and safely return home as quickly as his/her recovery allows. Our services include physical, occupational and speech language therapy, skilled nursing and specialized short-term rehabilitative programs that address a wide variety of conditions.
Kindred Assisted Living Centers offer a full range of services, from housekeeping to restaurant-quality dining, that help residents remain independent. Apartments are designed to provide privacy with easy access to activities and amenities. The care we deliver includes nursing, pharmacy, dietary and social services, as well as a range of additional services to enhance our residents’ quality of life. Residents enjoy a vibrant community and companionship, as well as the comforts of home, with less worry about day-to-day needs.
The home health professionals with Kindred at Home and Gentiva, an affiliate of Kindred at Home, provide medical care and services – including nursing care, wound care and rehabilitation therapies – delivered in the comfort of a patient’s own home. Experienced nurses, therapists and aides work to maximize physical abilities, improve health and well-being and provide essential education and management of medications and medical conditions.
Our hospice professionals provide a family oriented model of care in order to meet the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of terminal patients and their families. Our multidisciplinary services enable patients to stay in a familiar and comfortable environment while delivering pain management, aggressive comfort measures and psychological support to create the best possible end-of-life experience.
Palliative care, a type of care focused on providing comfort and promoting quality of life through pain and symptom management, can be accessed while patients are still receiving aggressive, curative treatment in any setting. Our palliative care team, including physicians, nurse practitioners and other specialists, coordinates healthcare resources and provides assistance with understanding treatment options, helping patients identify their goals, and making decisions to fulfill those goals.
We also provide personal home care assistance because we know that care for our patients doesn’t stop with their medical needs. This type of care may include meal preparation, transportation, companionship and respite care for family caregivers in the home.
Kindred, through RehabCare, offers a variety of rehabilitation services including physical, occupational and speech-language therapies. These services are offered across the entire post-acute continuum through every transition.
