Skilled Nursing at Sharp Extended Care
Sharp Extended Care offers an alternative to traditional skilled nursing care by coordinating short-term rehabilitation services in a warm, homelike environment. This concept is offered at select facilities where the caregivers and staff share Sharp's commitment to delivering patient-centered care.
With Sharp Extended Care, full-time Sharp-affiliated physicians and a nurse case manager help patients transition from the hospital to home and coordinate ongoing care. This innovative approach is designed to help patients go home faster and prevent unnecessary returns to the hospital.
Personalized care when you need it most.
The dedicated team of Sharp-affiliated physicians and case managers work closely with the facility's physical, occupational and speech therapists. Together, the team carefully designs a personalized rehabilitation care plan to strengthen the body and help patients reacclimate to everyday life. From monitoring temperature to evaluating range of motion, caregivers provide each patient with thorough assessments to measure progress.
Keeping your loved ones involved.
We recognize that family members and friends play an important role when it comes to the overall well-being of patients. Visitors are welcome any time at the facilities where Sharp Extended Care is offered, and loved ones are provided with support to help them cope with the emotional impact of having a family member or friend away from home. The Sharp Extended Care team will help guide you and your family as you transition to the next level of care.
A place of healing.
Sharp Extended Care is provided in a comfortable setting where each patient has a semi-private room that is decorated with warm colors and artwork, and appointed with many modern conveniences, such as flat-screen TVs. Facilities have inviting lounges where patients and family members can relax and socialize.
