Our services

Nursing and behavioral healthcare programs

Garden Village provides patients and their families with a holistic approach to long-term, skilled healthcare in an interactive, innovative environment. With over 100 beds, Garden Village is a skilled-care facility that provides high-quality services for residents who have chosen Garden Village as their home.

Secure Alzheimer's dementia care unit

Garden Village has a 20-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, and 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

Individuals with delirium, dementia or mental illness often need a specialized environment that can address challenging behaviors during recovery from surgery or serious illness. Licensed nurses; nursing assistants; and 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 at 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 individual 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.
