Pallia­tive Care

Some­times after a seri­ous illness or compli­cated surgi­cal proce­dure, patients are not able to return imme­di­ately to their home. Patients in this situ­a­tion, who need extra help or reha­bil­i­ta­tion, can stay in the Extended Care facil­ity at Ivin­son Memo­r­ial Hospital. 

The Extended Care facil­ity is a compre­hen­sive medical facil­ity dedi­cated to assist­ing indi­vid­u­als who are discharged from an inpa­tient unit, but need extra reha­bil­i­ta­tion before return­ing home.

With skilled nurs­ing, phys­i­cal and occu­pa­tional reha­bil­i­ta­tion services, and weekly care plan­ning confer­ences with the patient and family, we ensure each patient receives the opti­mal level of care.

Our patients are involved in socially inter­ac­tive situ­a­tions and mentally-stim­u­lat­ing activ­i­ties. We encour­age all patients to eat meals together in our family room, and, for many patients, a tempo­rary exten­sion of care is all that is needed to return to their normal, daily lives.
