Services | Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation

Our short-term rehabilitation/sub-acute care is designed for older adults who are recovering from an illness, injury, accident or surgery, and need skilled rehab services.

Our experienced team of rehab professionals treat people with a wide variety of needs, including, but not limited to, neurological illness or injury (strokes, TIAs TBI, Parkinson’s Disease, MS, ALS), cardiovascular and cardio-pulmonary disease (MI, COPD, CAD, CHF, cardio-thoracic surgeries), joint replacements and orthopedic injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, diabetes, pneumonia, recovery from surgeries and other types of debility. Our therapy program is designed to help older adults return to the level of independence that they are accustomed.

Treatments are customized to individuals in order to achieve the most optimal function in all aspects of self-care. This may include increasing and improving an individual’s strength, endurance, coordination and balance, restoring or maintaining range of motion, and improving flexibility.

Good Sam offers 20 sub-acute beds in a designated section with complementary cable and local phone services. Our six-day-a-week therapy takes place in our spacious and newly renovated PT and OT gyms. Rehab treatments take place in warm, sunshine-filled spaces, with dedicated, highly trained staff, including the only nursing facility based Certified Exercise Expert for Aging Adults (CEEAA) on staff in the capital region. Our certified nursing assistants are specially trained in restorative care and work alongside the therapists to optimize and promote independence with self-care activities.
