24-Hour Skilled Nursing Care
We are proud to offer qualified, experienced nursing care to our residents whether your stay is short or long term. We have registered nurses, licensed practical (vocational) nurses, as well as certified nurse assistants available 24 hours a day to ensure that your skilled nursing needs are met.
OT- Occupational Therapy
Our occupational therapy team works hand-in-hand with physicians and surgeons to ensure that our patients reach their highest level of independence. Occupational therapists (OTs) work with patients who suffer from disabling conditions by developing an individualized care plan that improves basic motor functions and reasoning abilities. OTs provide customized interventions to improve individuals’ ability by providing treatment programs that may include: range of motion and strengthening exercises, functional ergonomics, and/or use of modalities to decrease pain and swelling. Occupational therapy focuses on the upper extremities to help our residents improve their ability to manage day-to-day living.
Our experienced team of physical, occupational, and speech therapists work closely with individuals who are recovering from a stroke. While rehabilitation does not “cure” or reverse brain damage that may have occurred from a stroke, rehabilitation is vital in reducing further brain injury and maximizing patient recovery. With motivation and social support from our staff, the primary goal of stroke recovery is to prevent secondary health complications, minimizing impairments and achieving functional goals that promote independence.
At Marin Post Acute, we have a Registered Dietitian for our patients’ dietary needs. For patients with special dietary requirements, our dietician works directly with our kitchen staff to ensure all requirements are met.
Our Social Services Directors are resident advocates who seek to improve the quality of life and well being of each resident by helping residents cope with emotional, social, and medical health care needs. They facilitate care conferences, support groups, and provide counseling services for residents and family members.
PT- Physical Therapy
Marin Post Acute has an excellent physical therapy team that treats health-related conditions, illnesses, or injuries that limit patients’ abilities to move and perform functional activities of daily living. Physical Therapy includes muscle strengthening and retraining, transfer techniques, stair climbing, training in the use of prosthetics, gait training, and adaptive equipment training. Physical therapists (PTs) use an individual’s history and physical examination to establish a care plan by setting goals that will be specifically tailored to each individual. Their plan may include pain management, exercises, stretching, manual therapy, education, and other interventions. PTs work with individuals by maintaining and restoring movement and functional ability back to the patient, as well as preventing further loss of mobility. PTs will help build strength, endurance, coordination, balance, and/or flexibility. Our ultimate goal is to restore the highest level of functional independence to each individual.
ST- Speech Therapy
Speech and language therapy are aimed at improving communicative abilities and cognitive functioning. Our speech-language pathologist works with patients who have communication disorders. Through evaluation, a tailored plan of care is created. Our therapists will provide treatments in the areas of speech, voice, fluency, and swallowing.
We are proud to offer extensive wound care by our team of treatment nurses. We have specialized wound care nurses who work directly with our nursing staff to organize and conduct weekly wound care rounds for patient consultation and follow up to ensure that wounds are properly cared for and promote maximum healing potential.
At Marin Post Acute, the psychological well being of each resident is very important to us. We offer an ongoing program, 7 days a week, to meet the interests of each resident through physical and mental activities. Some examples of activities offered include: social gatherings, musical guests, arts and crafts, exercise classes, and intellectual discussions. Our activities calendar changes monthly with new activities added accordingly. We strive to provide interactive and fun activities where everyone can participate. Our activities department and nursing staff motivate residents by reminding, encouraging, and escorting them to the group activities of their choice.
