How can we serve you?

Skilled Nursing Care:

Sometimes there is additional time needed to recuperate after a hospital stay in our "Rehab to Home" program. This is frequently the case with older adults because they tend to recover at a slower rate. These patients can take advantage of the extra 2 to 3 weeks of direct therapies to improve strength. Our "Rehab to Home" program has a proven track record for getting individuals back to their homes and the added recovery time and services are paid by Medicare for the qualified stay. "Skilled Nursing Care" means that licensed nurses and/or therapists will work daily with the resident. Ruthven Community Care Center's skilled nursing services are designed to meet the needs, providing round-the-clock nursing care for a limited number of days or weeks as per government guidelines. Our goal is to facilitate a return to the patient's highest level of function. (More of Skilled Nursing)
