Skilled Nursing

 

Professional care is provided under the direction of licensed physicians, nurses and other caring and dedicated healthcare professionals. Rehabilitation programs, including physical, occupational and speech therapy, are available through our therapy department. These services help residents reach their maximum physical potential. Special focus is placed on 20 day Medicare stays. Ancillary Medical service such as podiatry and geriatric psychiatry are also available. Services provided by the Social Work department, pastoral care and activity department assure that the social, spiritual and recreational needs of each resident are met. John Knox Manor II is pet friendly with bird aviaries throughout the facility and bird feeders outside each resident’s window.
