Asbury Health and Rehabilitation Center Gains VOHRA Certification.

July 23, 2018 - In News; Outreach

Last fall, Aldersgate celebrated the grand opening of the new Asbury Health and Rehabilitation Center – a dramatic shift from institutional care to neighborhood living. 

 

The core of our healthcare mission is to deliver “person-centered” care. That means tailoring everything – from treatment plans and therapies to Life Enrichment programming and even mealtimes and menu options – to each individual. It’s care in a home-like environment that’s on your schedule not ours.  

 

For us, person-centered care also means ensuring we deliver the best healthcare possible. That means improving quality in the wound care community. 

 

Aldersgate is pleased to announce yet another milestone: we are one of very few skilled nursing facilities that is certified in Wound Care by the VOHRA. 

 

VOHRA Wound Physicians is a national physician group founded and led by physicians. The group partners with nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living facilities to provide physician-led wound care at the bedside. VOHRA’s multi-specialty training is led by more than 200 physicians serving over 2500 post-acute care facilities in 27 states. The mission is to optimize outcomes, prevent hospitalizations, and reduce costs, fostering a culture based on quality, value, partnership, and innovation.

 

What does this mean for our elders? The ability to provide early detection and effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including:

 

  • Acute and Chronic Wounds
  • Management and treatment of Vascular ulcers
  • Atypical wounds
  • Infection control
  • Geriatric skin conditions
  • Pressure Ulcers

 

Our Wound Care team’s work may also include evaluating at-risk residents for nutritional status, because poor health or poor nutrition may predispose a person to pressure ulcers. If they decide poor nutrition exists, they will work with the dietitian to increase protein and/or general caloric intake.

 

We are proud of the new Asbury Health and Rehabilitation Center. You are our guests, not our patients. You’ll stay in one of six beautiful households with private suites and baths, a chef’s kitchen, a large dining room, great rooms with fireplaces, computer work areas, a salon and Life Enrichment activities. All while benefiting from the most advanced short-term and long-term treatment and care. We invite you to come take at tour of the new Asbury. For more information, call 704.532.7071.
