A Partnership of Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital and Central Washington Comprehensive Mental Health
Garden Village is a skilled nursing facility, providing the highest level of comfort-driven, quality care to those with complex and long-term medical and psychiatric needs. The facility offers programs designed to serve populations whose needs cannot be met in a traditional nursing home setting. While younger residents are welcome in specific situations, most residents are over age 50.
Providing a homelike environment, patients and their families depend on the health care team at Garden Village for assistance with adult daily living skills with conditions like Alzheimer's disease, along with rehabilitation, medication management, nutritional counseling and behavioral intervention.
As a licensed skilled nursing facility, Garden Village provides all skilled nursing care including medication management, ostomy management (a surgically-created opening for the removal of waste), G-tube feeding (find more details regarding Memorial's Yakima tube feeding services here.), IV therapies, wound management and rehabilitation therapies and assistance with daily living skills. Also available are in-house psychiatric care and individualized behavior management planning that is integrated into the comprehensive treatment program.
At Garden Village, each resident is recognized as a unique individual who wants to make choices about how they live. Requiring physical assistance does not mean they forfeit the right to make those decisions. Using a person-directed approach to care, the health care staff stresses flexibility and creativity in developing each resident's specific care plan.
Health care partnerships
Garden Village's staff works directly with Senior Adult Services, Rehabilitation Programs and Acute Care Services at Central Washington Comprehensive Mental Health and staff at Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital Psychiatric Services. Joint staffing and collaborative programming among all groups ensures smooth transfer of residents from one level of care to another.
Memorial's pharmacy provides daily delivery of medications and on-site pharmacist visits for Garden Village. A pharmacist attends interdisciplinary team meetings and works directly with physicians and nurses to assure safe, appropriate medication treatment for residents.
Garden Village social workers and nurses have well-developed relationships with DSHS Home and Community Services staff and many of the adult family home providers in the county. Garden Village also provides consultation and assistance to other nursing facilities and residential care programs throughout Central and Southeastern Washington.
Admissions are welcomed regardless of race, color, age, national origin, or disability.
Specialized Care Services
Secure Alzheimer’s dementia care unit
Garden Village has a 23-bed unit for residents with dementia who need a secure environment that allows for freedom of mobility and access within it. There are indoor and outdoor areas that provide a variety of options for stimulating, safe activity. Certified nursing and activities assistants provide one-to-one assistance for all activities of daily living. Licensed nurses provide skilled assessment, treatment and intervention for medical care needs. Social workers work closely with the nursing team to ensure that psychosocial needs are met and family involvement is maintained. Physicians and psychiatrists with specialization in geriatric care make weekly rounds to provide assessment and supervision of care and treatment.
Specialized rehabilitation services—certified Medicare unit
Individuals with delirium, dementia or mental illness often need a specialized environment that can address challenging behaviors during recovery from surgery or serious illness. Garden Village provides a seven-bed short-term stay unit for individuals with behavioral health care needs who require skilled nursing care and rehabilitation following a hospitalization. Licensed nurses, nursing assistants, physical, occupational and speech therapists work with social workers and mental health professionals to assure well-managed recovery and appropriate return to community placements.
Specialized long-term care—
Integrated psychiatric and medical services
Garden Village offers long-term care for individuals with chronic medical and/or behavioral health conditions that require 24-hour skilled nursing care and psychiatric treatment. Individuals with Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, ALS, schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, vascular dementia and other conditions that effect brain function frequently have very complicated health issues that require both medical and psychiatric assessment and treatment. Care is coordinated among psychiatrists, neurologists, primary care physicians, nursing staff, social workers and rehabilitation therapists to assure a comprehensive treatment plan. A wide variety of therapeutic activities and both individual and group counseling is provided within the facility to maintain independent functioning and quality of life. Family involvement is encouraged and supported in all aspects of resident care.
