Special Care Unit
A special care unit is available to those with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other memory-related disorders. This unit has specially trained staff who assist residents with their unique needs.
Security is always a priority in the unit. Doors are kept locked and the outside courtyard is enclosed. Daily activities are designed to keep residents functioning at the highest level possible.
Short-term recovery rooms are for individuals who require additional assistance following surgery or an illness, if a primary caregiver is temporarily unavailable or if the individual requires more help than their caregiver can provide. The semi-private rooms are furnished, tastefully decorated, and move-in ready.
Short-term residents receive round-the-clock care, therapy services on site through Memorial Health System Rehabilitation, nutritious meals with dietitian support, and will have their medications managed by the nurses on staff. Housekeeping services are provided and cable television is available in the rooms. Short-term residents may also engage in the numerous activities Village Manor has to offer.
Village Manor’s skilled nursing care meets each resident’s needs by developing an individualized care plan. Our specially trained staff follows this plan. Physicians and consulting specialists visit Village Manor residents regularly. For those needs that aren’t met with a house call, Memorial Hospital and physician’s offices are just minutes away.
Many people come to Village Manor for short stays to recover from an illness, surgery, or injury and then return home. Village Manor works in coordination with Memorial Health System Rehabilitation to offer on-site therapy services. MHS Rehabilitation offers physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Therapy services are also available to long-term residents when needed.
Respite & Adult Day Care
Respite and adult day care are available at Village Manor for those family members who aren’t quite ready to give up full-time care of their loved ones. Respite care is temporary long-term care and relieves the caregiver for a longer period of time. It can be for a day, a week, or a month. Adult day care provides caregivers with needed personal time for appointments, errands, and other activities.
Village Manor works in concert with Hospice of Dickinson County to provide palliative care to those who need it. For more information about Hospice, call the Abilene office at (785) 263-6630.
If needed, transportation can be provided for medical appointments by Village Manor staff.
