Professional Medical Care
You can trust that the care provided in our facility is directed by a physician. Physicians make regular visits to our facility and are on call 24 hours a day to meet the needs of our residents. Our professional team provides the highest level of care available.
A comprehensive plan of care for each resident is implemented to ensure individual goals are achieved. We have registered nurses and certified nursing assistants as well as visits from psychiatrists, podiatrists, dentists and hospice.
Our therapy staff is anxious to meet you, evaluate your needs, start you on your personalized rehabilitation program and make your stay here pleasant and productive. Our goal is to get you back to your prior level of function as quickly as possible.
We provide Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy. Your physician will decide which of these you should receive. We strive to get you evaluated your first day unless you arrive later in the day. If that is the case, you will be seen the next day. (The only exception could be a late Friday or Saturday arrival.) After your evaluation, your therapists will develop an individualized treatment plan in conjunction with your physician.
What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy (OT) helps people with disabilities to return to their lives through the use of therapeutic methods, applied and assistive technology and environmental modifications. Occupational therapy retrains patients in the activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, grooming and feeding.
What is Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapy (PT) is for patients with pain and/or movement dysfunction resulting from disability or disease. Through proper evaluation and treatment, physical therapy can minimize pain and disability and maximize functional potential. Physical therapy adds to a patient’s strength, mobility and fitness.
What is Speech Therapy?
Speech Therapy (ST) offers comprehensive evaluation and treatment for individuals who have developed speech, swallowing or cognitive problems following an injury or illness.
Culture Change and Complete Dining Services
We strive to make each resident feel as though they are in their own home while at Point Lookout Nursing & Rehab. Our staff honors resident choices and preferences by getting to know each resident and what their likes and dislikes are. We establish a fundamental relationship with each individual person to ensure that the needs and wants of that person are met.
Our home has begun a culture change journey by respecting the choices that our residents make. For example, each resident has the opportunity to make their own daily schedule by choosing what time they will eat, when they bathe, what time to wake up each morning and what activities they want to do during the day. Our facility also has a complete dining service in which the resident can select what they want to eat each day. We offer a variety of nutritious meals and snacks that residents can choose from based on their individual preferences.
Alzheimer’s Special Care Unit
Point Lookout Nursing & Rehab has a 48 bed Alzheimer’s Unit that is designed to provide a consistent, therapeutic place for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. It is an activity based unit that allows residents to maintain optimal health.
Special plans of care are designed for each individual resident to ensure that they are receiving the best quality of care. These plans of care are reviewed quarterly and revised if significant changes have occurred.
The Alzheimer’s Unit has its own activity director who works one-on-one with the residents and develops individualized activities as well as group activities. Residents participate in arts and crafts, games, music therapy and light gardening in the courtyard. Activities occur daily with a calendar of events posted.
Resident safety is something we strive for which is why our Alzheimer’s Unit has door alarms, door locks, and enclosed courtyard and wander guards.
We offer an Alzheimer’s Family Support Group, Respite Care, Support Staff Assigned to Work with Family Members and Educational Materials on Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias for the family to become involved in the care of their loved one.
Adult Day Care
Adult Day Care programs offer services and benefits to elderly citizens for a period of less than twenty-four hours. This program allows family members that care for their elderly loved ones to go to work, handle personal business, or simply take a break from what can be an overwhelming task. The objective of the Adult Day Care program is to stimulate minds, encourage socialization and meet the everyday needs of older adults. Some of the activities offered include physical therapy, recreational games, educational sessions and meals. These activities are completed in a protective environment and under constant supervision. Ultimately, this program is designed to provide a place for your loved one to go during the day rather than placing them in our nursing home unless completely necessary.
