Excellent Dietary Recommendations

Our Resident Food Council members and our Food Service Director design our menus according to the preferences of the residents. Our menus are nutritionally balanced by our dietitian.
 
Specialized diets are easily accommodated. Our residents are offered choices daily through our a la carte dining service. Patients / residents are more than welcome to request items or recommend recipes.
 
It is our philosophy to keep diets as liberal as possible. Nutrition is a key component to healing. We use fresh produce and have an “always available menu” to choose from.

Discharge Planning Specialists

Comprehensive discharge planning begins the day you are admitted. Our team of specialists will evaluate and develop a unique plan of care. Our team will work in conjunction with you and your family, friends, or community resources to provide a safe and successful discharge.

Quality Assurance Performance Involvement (QAPI)

It is our policy to develop, implement, and maintain an ongoing program designed to monitor and evaluate the quality of care provided, to develop and pursue methods to improve quality care, and to resolve identified problems.
 
There are numerous internal tools that we use which help us focus on specific areas. Two tools which our residents and patients have access to are our satisfaction surveys, which are mailed quarterly and upon discharge, and our suggestion form, which is located in the hallway by the rehabilitation department.
 
These forms may be dropped in the secure box located in the same area. The committee meets daily to review any items. We also welcome and encourage you to contact us directly. See our directory for direct lines or email addresses.

"During my recent, two-week stay at Chestelm Health & Rehabilitation Center, I had the opportunity to observe your operation. A very caring group of nurses and CNAs who went the extra mile to make us as comfortable in our healing process as possible. Every one of them listened, supported, and treated us with kindness and compassion.
 
The therapy department was a wonderful group of professionals; they certainly know their stuff! They were very patient, caring, and always aware that we were safe while doing our exercises. I take my hat off to your kitchen staff!"
