Northern Facilities, a network of rehab centers in NY, is currently spotlighting its range of dementia services and other senior care options, grouped under its Essentia program.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NY rehab center network Northern Facilities – located online at http://www.NorthernServicesGroup.com – recently spotlighted the range of services it provides through its Essentia program. Essentia, a Secured Memory Impairment Neighborhood, is an intensive plan for seniors that is particularly customized for those suffering from dementia and other ailments. As a seven-day-a-week, all-inclusive program, Essentia guarantees that patients will be treated with the highest level of care. With a focus on therapeutic activity, seniors are kept active and engaged by trained staff members within an open community environment.
“It’s common for seniors to feel a sense of isolation when they first seek out in-patient nursing home therapy, and it can be even more difficult if they are concurrently suffering from dementia or other health conditions that tend to further distance them from their peers. With our Essentia program, currently in place at four of our rehab centers in New York, the focus becomes helping our residents to lead a life that still feels active and meaningful, while also making sure that they’re surrounded by employees who can quickly and adeptly respond to any of their health concerns. Many other New York rehab centers only focus on one aspect, but we feel that Essentia successfully combines both lifestyle support and medical care,” said Jeremy Strauss, the Executive Director of Centers for Specialty Care Group, which consults for Northern Facilities’ Rockland County nursing homes.
Active in the senior healthcare industry since 1981, Northern Facilities offers its Essentia nursing home therapy program at four different locations, in order to make the plan as accessible as possible for seniors seeking out rehab centers in New York. The Northern Metropolitan location is an appealing option for patients browsing nursing homes in Rockland County. As a discrete and secure special care center, Northern Metropolitan offers a 120-bed skilled nursing facility, and was also recently the recipient of two dementia grants from the New York Department of Health. For seniors looking for a more intimate nursing home therapy facility outside of New York City, the Northern Riverside center, located in Haversaw, New York, offers skilled nursing, short term rehab, respite care and assisted living programs, all in a cozy facility that boasts scenic river views.
The complete Essentia program is also available at another of Northern Facilities’ New York rehab centers, the Northern Adult Day Health Center. Located near the Botanical Gardens in picturesque Park Slope, Brooklyn, the Northern Adult Day Health Center puts a particular emphasis on active lifestyle support for seniors who aim to live as independently as possible. Featuring day trips to museums and parks, language education, cooking groups, exercise classes, and more, the NY rehab center is ideal for outgoing seniors who are still eager to explore new avenues. The Northern Manor Multicare Center, located in Nanuet, New York, is one more all-inclusive center that features the Essentia plan.
“At the heart of the Essentia program is a focus that promotes wellness and active socialization for elderly residents, with an emphasis on supportive care for both seniors and their family members alike. With a staff that includes registered nurses, social workers, therapeutic recreation staff, dieticians, and physical therapists, Northern Facilities offers a holistic approach to nursing home therapy,” said Strauss.
