Skilled Nursing at Brazos Towers
Our goal in Skilled Nursing is focused on rehabilitative care. Working to get you back to having the capabilities you had before experiencing your health crisis. Our team consists of a Medical Director and Nursing Executives, who specialize and are board certified in Gerontology along with certified nursing assistants, and a dedicated skilled nursing activities professional. We work closely with both residents and doctors to prevent any unnecessary re-hospitalization. If needed, hospice services are welcome to operate within our skilled nursing, memory support, assisted living or even independent living residences. With an overall added benefit being that once the long-term needs are determined Brazos Towers offers transitional living arrangements giving residents the opportunity to move into more independent settings once they have made a full recovery.
Brazos Towers has its own on-site therapy suite with licensed physical, occupational and speech therapists that work diligently with residents to help them reach their fullest capability. Whether residents are approved for either in-patient or out-patient therapies they have the convenience of knowing they can choose to do them in their own community. Out-patient therapy can even be done in the comfort of their own apartments. Easy access to those types of services helps to keep everyone being the best they can be.
Our resident centered culture focuses on individual needs and preferences in a home-like environment conducive to resident interaction. Resident’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health is nurtured through our wellness program, InPower. Our full-time healthcare activities coordinator designs activities to meet the specific capabilities of the residents we have at any given time. Residents of our healthcare center can expect a team of inter-disciplinary professionals who work closely with them toward their full recovery. Professional nurses, rehabilitation therapists, social workers, dining services staff and activity professionals meet regularly with each resident. Family members are invited to attend these meetings. Together, residents and their team formulate and execute the optimal treatment and care plans to achieve the highest possible level of recovery.
Our Medicare Certified healthcare center is boutique in size with less than 37 residents at any given time. On two floors we offer mostly private rooms with private baths, but also have some shared bath options or semi-private rooms for those seeking maximum affordability.
