Our nursing staff and facilities are equipped to care for wounds of all kinds. We can help change bandages and monitor the wound to make sure it heals properly. Our nurses can dispense medication as needed, and our staff is available 24/7 to make sure patients are as comfortable as possible during recovery.

Embassy Healthcare Skilled NursesSkilled nursing services are an important part of the care we provide at our communities throughout Ohio.

All of our skilled nursing communities offer a variety of care types, including:

Short-term care- multi-day or multi-week care for individuals recovering from injury or illness and transitioning into home care or an extended care community.
Long-term care- extended care for those who need daily assistance with eating, bathing, dressing, and getting around. These needs can arise as a result of compound disabilities, memory impairment and/or chronic illness.
Respite care- half-day or full-day care that allows home care providers to run errands, attend events, or even take a vacation.

What is Skilled Nursing Care?

Skilled Nursing Care describes the medical services our care team provides to our residents. Skilled nursing care may be necessary for your loved one following a hospital stay for an illness or injury, or on a long-term basis.

Our staff physicians work closely with our patients' doctors and our staff nurses to deliver the same kind of care you'd expect in a hospital environment. Our nursing staff can tend to post-operative wounds, oversee the dispensing of medications, deliver infusion treatments, and provide support for chronic conditions such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Heart disease
  • Ostomy conditions

We also have the personnel to deliver physical, occupational and speech therapies, including post-stroke therapy, on site. And like other care communities, we provide custodial care, including help with eating, dressing and other daily activities.

Embassy's Skilled Nursing Qualifications

In order to call our communities skilled nursing facilities, we have to meet a strict set of qualifications set by the federal government and the state of Ohio, including:

  • Nursing staff levels
  • 24-hour LPN or RN availability

Respite CareWhat is Respite Care?

Respite care is short-term care designed for adults with special medical needs. Respite care can range from a few hours to overnight and extended stays. You can utilize respite care services as frequently as you need to, without a commitment to a particular community.

The Benefits of Respite Care

Caring for a loved one at home is rewarding, certainly, but it can also be difficult to balance your needs and theirs. The stress of providing home care can affect your work productivity and take an emotional and physical toll on your entire family.

Respite care gives home caregivers an opportunity to work, run errands, clean up around the house, or even take a much-needed vacation.

There are several benefits to respite care.

  • Delayed full-time nursing care, which controls care costs
  • Reduced caregiver strain and stress, as well as associated mortality risks
  • Improved family dynamic and function
  • Reduced hospitalization for respite care recipients
  • Improved physical and emotional health for both the caregiver and the respite care recipient

Embassy Healthcare's respite care services are designed specifically with our guests and their caregivers in mind, and we have several communities throughout Ohio that can provide the short-term care you need. We even offer special respite care services for those with Alzheimer's and related illnesses.

Your loved one will receive individual attention and quality personal and medical care, so you won't have to worry while you're away. Our facilities have a licensed nursing staff that's available 24 hours a day, as well as fun activity programs to keep your loved one engaged and socialized.

How Often Can I Use Respite Care?

You can use Embassy's respite care services just once, if you like. We also offer programs that allow for half-day and full-day respite care, as well as extended-stay respite care.

We'll be happy to look after your loved one during the day while you're at work, on the weekends when you need to run errands, or even while you take an extended vacation.

Call us at 888-975-1379 to make respite care arrangements for your loved one today.

What therapy services are available?

We provide physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. All services and treatments are prescribed by a physician and implemented by trained staff and licensed professionals.

Physical therapy can help increase strength, balance and mobility, and decrease pain and discomfort. A quality physical therapy program can help people return to normal activity, and is necessary before the reintroduction of any exercise programs after an injury. We focus on movement safety to prevent future injuries.

Occupational therapy helps people perform everyday activities such as feeding and dressing themselves. We teach transferring and positioning techniques that will help participants live more safely and independently. We also teach basic home skills, such as laundry, cooking and microwave use. There's even a caregiver education component to help families assist their loved ones safely.

Speech therapy services are provided by a licensed, certified speech-language pathologist. These services are designed to help improve communication and clarity of speech. We focus on identifying strategies to help with memory, as well as breaking down and organizing information to ease the decision-making process. We also help those with swallowing disorders, including dietary planning.
