All of Our Patients' Needs are Important

Your loved one’s time in skilled nursing can be as much an emotional journey as it is a physical one. It’s normal for patients to feel anxious or frustrated during therapy or rehab. At Brookdale, we believe that caring for a patient’s emotional needs is crucial for the recovery process. Numerous studies have shown that stress can delay healing. So when we treat patients, we focus on the emotional needs as much as the physical, providing you with the best opportunity for success. 

Tackling Every Aspect of Health

Our staff is a pivotal part in treating the emotional needs of our patients. We provide experienced clinical teams who are sensitive to patient concerns, and these teams can include social workers that focus on the psychological aspects of recovery and rehabilitation. Certain programs like our acclaimed Optimum Life program are designed specifically to provide opportunities to challenge the mind, live with purpose and nurture the heart. That way your stay at Brookdale is not only a recovery — it’s also an enriching experience designed around your interests.

A patient’s emotions can often be directly tied to the experience they are having at a senior living facility, which is why we provide programs and amenities designed to enrich a patient’s experience. Our skilled nursing care centers have iPads and offer wifi that can be used with personal devices. They provide a range of classes, including technology, art, brain fitness, exercise, storytelling and genealogy, as well as the opportunity to take part in volunteer and community service projects. Our Ageless Spirit program explores spirituality through meditation and other practices. We work actively to promote family connections, even scheduling Facetime sessions to help loved ones stay in touch.* 

If you’re seeking long-term care, Brookdale offers the knowledge and resources that come as the nation’s leading senior living provider. Our skilled nursing and transitional programs are located on campuses that offer other levels of care. This means you’ll have available to you a variety of care options in one trusted place, as well as Brookdale experienced professionals who can help you navigate the options and make decisions.
