The ElderWood Difference
ElderWood offers the right choice for the transition between hospital and home.
The length of stay for rehabilitation or subacute care averages only 22 days. And a greater percentage of ElderWood patients return to the community than the national average.
ElderWood also offers the area's only community-based ventilator care program, with small, portable ventilators providing residents with far more mobility than conventional units.
ElderWood's success results from our unique methods of care and attention to each patient's individual needs. While our goal is to return residents to an independent lifestyle, we offer assistance in obtaining services following discharge. Our staff is trained in all aspects of recovery, including continued care and home safety.
