The Rennes Health & Rehab Center skilled nursing centers provide short-term intensive rehabilitation promoting a resident's return to a community setting, or long-term care services when the resident's care needs can no longer be provided for in their homes. Skilled nursing facilities, or most commonly referred to as nursing homes, refers to a patient’s needs that require care delivered only by a licensed and professional care team. While far from your typical nursing home, Rennes Health & Rehab Centers include Registered Nurses (RNs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) as well as other credentialed or licensed and certified staff.
Whether a resident needs a short-term respite stay to assist with the recuperative process or temporarily alleviate a family caregiver, or long-term care assistance, Rennes Health & Rehab Centers offer private and semi-private rooms and compassionate care to engage residents in activities of daily living and rehabilitative therapies.

What to expect in a skilled nursing facility/rehabilitation center:
Professional nurses are available around the clock to identify changing health conditions as well as to provide the skilled nursing activities for health maintenance or healing. Nursing staff provide bedside assistance with activities of daily living such as grooming, toileting, dining, and ambulation to the degree required by the resident. Whereas service is abundantly and willingly provided, each resident is gently encouraged to use their remaining skills and capacities to maintain as much independence as possible. Individualized care planning focuses on not only what capacity has been taken away by illness and aging, but more importantly on what skills, abilities, and interests of the individual resident.
Meals are prepared carefully taking into consideration the resident's eating preferences, the nutritional health of each person, and their therapeutic menu needs. Residents are encouraged to participate in daily activities. Our care team strives to learn what individual resident interests are, using that information to create future activities. The environment is meticulously maintained. Depending on location, some facilities offer specialty units for enhanced care of residents with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
