Skilled Nursing Care
Medicalodges Atchison offers skilled nursing care for both short-term (respite) and long-term stays in a warm, homelike environment. Some of the skilled nursing services we provide are:
- Post-surgical care
- Nutrition via feeding tubes
- Oxygen therapy / treatments
- Wound care / therapy
- Parenteral / IV fluids and medication
- Diabetic care
By working closely with hospice providers, we offer outstanding hospice and palliative care and family support for those who are facing end-of-life issues. Pain management, social services, bereavement counseling, and spiritual guidance are just some of the services offered through hospice care.
Short-term, respite stays provide caregivers with much-deserved time of their own, enabling them to attend to personal needs and rejuvenate for improved care of their loved one. It also provides their loved one with a change of scenery and the opportunity for social interaction. Short-term stays are also a good way to assist individuals with preparing to transition to a long-term stay and may be the best way to support the person’s medical needs.
Adult Day Care
For some people, inpatient stays don’t quite fit their current needs. Many times, all that is needed are a few hours allowing a caregiver to be able to take a break or complete some errands. For these situations, we provide adult day care services. These services provide your loved one with nursing care, dining services and socialization for a few hours a day. While the individual is able to enjoy a delicious meal, activities and medical attention, the caregiver can have a few hours to attend to his or her personal needs.
