Enjoy Life with Us – Summer Fun at Cedar Haven

Enjoy Life with Us – Summer Fun at Cedar Haven

This is part of a series of posts that highlight how our residents and team #EnjoyLifeWithUs at Cedar Haven Healthcare Center. Here is a peek into our summer festivities:

Cedar Haven Healthcare Center, a skilled nursing facility in Lebanon, provides high-quality care in a friendly and engaging atmosphere. Up to 100 fun activities are offered for our residents each month. This summer has held a number of fun and engaging events for our residents and their families to enjoy.

Activities Designed for You to Enjoy

This summer, our residents enjoyed a “Christmas in July” celebration and a rousing watermelon seed spitting competition. Best aim went to our Administrative Services Director, Marcia Krause and best form to our Director of Care Management, Crystal Arment. Our Director of Nursing Development, Kim Santiago, took home the prize for farthest distance. Congrats all and thank you for your ongoing efforts in making everyday special and fun for our residents.

In addition to hosting a number of resident family picnics, our Therapeutic Recreation department also went above and beyond in preparing an in-house mini golf course for our residents to enjoy. Here are some photos from their labor of love:

 

Therapies that Improve Quality of Life

Not all of our residents plan to stay with us long-term. Some join us to take advantage of our convenient in-house therapy department following a hospital stay due to illness, injury, or surgery. One such recent short-term resident graduated from our therapy program last week and had some kind words to say about Cedar Haven:

 

If somebody would need to go somewhere I would recommend Cedar Haven.  The people that took care of me, I couldn’t find any better.  On every shift I would ring the bell and they were right there and if I need to, will come back.  The view is great and everyone is so pleasant.

Veronica P.

Short-term Rehab Resident

Thank you for the kind words about your stay with us, Veronica! Here she is pictured with members of our team who assisted during her successful recovery:

View Our Refreshed Semi-Private Rooms: Attend Our Short-Term Therapy Open House

Cedar Haven Healthcare Center is well-known in Lebanon County for providing high-quality long-term skilled nursing care. Did you know that we also offer short-term rehab care for patients recovering from surgery or sudden illness? Our rehospitalization rates, which are far below the National Average, and our positive therapy outcomes make Cedar Haven a premier choice for your short-term rehab needs. 

We are pleased to announce that we now have 6 new large, newly-refreshed semi-private rooms located throughout our facility and are almost finished with a refresh of our entire Short-Term Rehabilitation floor.

The fresh paint, new furniture, updated lighting, and flat-screen TVs offer a comfortable setting for our short-term residents who require intensive on-site therapy after an illness, surgery, or hospital stay.

The other big change concerns the make-up of our short-term rehab floor, which now houses short-term rehab residents in private and semi-private rooms, creating a quiet environment conducive to recovery and wellness for those with intensive rehabilitation needs.

You are invited to tour our in-house Therapy gym and visit the Short-term Rehabilitation floor during our Open House on September 25th from 1 to 3pm. Door Prizes will be raffled off every 30 minutes and our flat screen TV grand prize winner will be drawn at the end of the Open House.

If you are interested in learning more and this time does not work for you, please contact us to schedule another time to tour our updated facilities.

Meet Silvestre and Christine, Recent Short-term Rehab Graduates

Meet Silvestre and Christine, Recent Short-term Rehab Graduates

Silvestre and Christine both recented graduated from our Short-term Therapy Program and had great comments to share about our program and therapists. Congratulations to you both on meeting your goals!

Silvestre and Christine both graduated recently from our Short-term Therapy program. They are pictured here with their program completion certifications at their graduation ceremonies with some of our therapy staff. 

Christine commented that she chose Cedar Haven for her care needs because she is a Lebanon local and has three granddaughters who work at our facility. Christine noted that, “All the therapists were very nice. They all had techniques that helped me.” When asked what she is most looking forward to returning to back at home, she shared that she loves “sitting, relaxing, and doing needlepoint. I like to make Christmas stockings to hang on the mantel. I also like having my grandchildren over to visit.” Christine is here pictured with three members of our therapy team who assisted her in her recovery.

Silvestre also had positive feedback to share upon his completion of our therapy program. Silvestre said that he “liked the way the staff treated me. The nurses, doctors and CNAs. I had three wonderful therapy ladies that helped me get better so I could return to home”. When asked what activity he was most excited about resuming upon graduating from our program, he said, “I’m looking forward to going shopping at Walmart!” Silvestre is pictured here with Nichole Martin, COTA, and Ann Jones, OTR, who both assisted him during his stay with us.

Please join us in congratulating Silvestre and Christine in both meeting their therapeutic goals in our Short-term Rehab program. We are so glad that you chose us for our post-acute care needs and wish you all the best as you return to your favorite activities! Visit our blog again to meet more of our Short-term Rehab graduates in the future as part of this ongoing series.

We are delighted to introduce you to Esther, a resident who recently completed our Short-term Therapy program. Esther was able to meet her therapeutic goals at Cedar Haven and return to her home. 

At her therapy graduation, we asked Esther a few questions about her stay at Cedar Haven.

She said that loved the crafts and enjoyed the therapy and nursing staff. “I really liked all of the Therapy Staff,” she remarked. “They listen to what I have to say”.

We asked Esther what she is looking forward to doing once she returns home and she said she “wants to make the wreaths at home that I learned how to make at Cedar Haven.” 

We are so pleased to hear that you had a successful and enjoyable stay with us. From all of us at Cedar Haven, we hope you have a wonderful summer… and have fun making more wreaths!

The “New” Cedar Haven’s Short-term Rehab Care Report: From Good to Better to Best

The “New” Cedar Haven’s Short-term Rehab Care Report: From Good to Better to Best

Choose the Short-Term Rehab facility in Lebanon with shorter length-of-stay and fewer hospital readmissions than the competition.

Many people in our community will face both surgeries or hospital visits this Fall and Winter, whether they were planned or unplanned. While Cedar Haven has offered short-term rehab services for decades, we have new statistics to share about the quality of care that sets Cedar Haven apart:

 

%

Cedar Haven 30-day Hospital Readmission Rate

%

National Average 30-day Hospital Readmission Rate

 

  • Fewer Hospital Readmissions than the National Average:  No one wants to return to the hospital after a procedure or unplanned stay if it can be avoided. Our 30-day Hospital Readmission Rate for all causes was 10.85% in 2017 and is 11.15% for 2018 to date, both well below the National Average of 15%.

Cedar Haven Average Length of Stay (Days) for Short-term Care

  • Short Length of Stay for Short-term Residents: Our team will help you get back to your favorite activities as quickly as possible. The 55 residents who graduated from our Short-term Rehabilitation program in 2018 stayed with us for an average of 24 days before being discharged back to their homes. Choosing Cedar Haven means choosing great care so that you can enjoy life!

Cedar Haven # of Post-Op Artificial Joint Infections since Inception

  • Perfect Track Record for Post-Op Artificial Joint Infections: Patients with artificial joints can be at risk for infections.  At Cedar Haven, we have never once had a resident with a post-op artificial joint infection. This achievement points to the impressive infection control and care provided on a daily basis.
