Short & Long-term Rehab

Wilton Meadows offers short & long-term rehabilitative care for patients recovering from an injury or illness.

Long-term skilled nursing care

Many patients require specialized care while they recover from illness or injury. Skilled nursing care refers to a high level of care carried out by licensed health professionals. At WM, our skilled nursing services are tailored to the needs of the individual, and may include complex wound dressing, medication management, catheter care, IV therapy, and other services that help promote healing and comfort.

Skilled nursing care can be long-term or short-term and is beneficial for patients recovering from acute injuries or chronic illnesses, including:

  • Amputations
  • Fractures
  • Stroke
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease
  • Emphysema

Skilled nursing care may also include rehabilitation therapies as well as assistance with bathing, dressing, eating, and other tasks of daily living. At WM, patients receive round-the-clock medical care in a comfortable and nurturing environment.

Our rehabilitation programs provide high-quality, compassionate care that aims to maximize functioning so patients can return home as soon as possible.

The goal of orthopedic rehabilitation is to help patients regain mobility and return to living an active, healthy life.
