Skilled Nursing, Rehab & Transition to Home Services

Our health care professionals include nurses, therapists and aides. They work under the direction of our medical director. Together, they help patients who have had an illness, accident or surgery return to their maximum level of independence and function. Our private rehab suites have flat-screen televisions and access to Wi-Fi. They are designed to keep patients connected to their loved ones in the community while they rehab to return home. We work with patients with sub-acute medical needs, in addition to those needing a structured therapy program. Our Transition to Home clients include people with a variety of needs such as stroke, cardiac, pulmonary, and orthopedic rehab.

Assisted Living at Hilty Home

If a loved one is no longer able to live safely at home, our Assisted Living can provide a solution. We encourage independence while supporting residents with the services they can no longer perform on their own. Our apartments are available in single or double units. They are rented on a monthly basis with no long-term commitment or lease required. Hilty Home is also an approved provider of the Medicaid Waiver program for those who qualify for this financial assistance.

Each apartment consists of a living room/bedroom combination, a kitchenette, and a large private bath. The bathroom is equipped with grab bars, an emergency call system and a walk-in shower.
