How do you know when a loved one needs geriatric care? It’s not always an easy decision, but the team at Santé can help. Signs your loved one needs geriatric care may become apparent when caring for them yourself. Some situations are more obvious, but others may leave you feeling unsure about what to do.

Knee pain is one of the most common causes of disability in elderly men and women. Pain or swelling in the knee can be due to a number of reasons, including injury, joint trauma, or osteoarthritis. There are many physical therapy exercises for the knee that can be performed at home. Daily exercise can help alleviate pain and increase motion.

At Santé, short-term rehab, home health care, and many other health care services are delivered through a continuum of care that focuses on providing the best possible experience for patients and their loved ones throughout the course of their journey. This is the difference that sets Santé apart from other rehabilitation centers across the spectrum of care, from rehabilitation and skilled nursing to hospice and home health.

In-home skilled nursing is a post-acute care option for patients who need continued care after an unexpected hospital stay or during treatment for a condition. Patients who need skilled nursing, and are able to go home, are ideal patients for in-home nursing services. At Santé, we know the importance of having family involved with the coordination of your loved one’s care. Here’s what you can expect from in-home skilled nursing.
