Posted on June 11, 2018

For individuals who are in need of intensive and personalized medical care for short periods of time, the skilled nursing facility at Jones County Rest Home in Ellisville offers everything patients need to get better and go home. Tom Hall, a physical therapist at the facility explains that a patient may be referred to a skilled nursing facility if they have just had a stroke or surgeries. The facility can take the patient from whatever level they are at, to a level where they can function at home. The skilled nursing facility cares for patients 24 hours a day and maintains a five-star rating. The facility does one-on-one training instead of group therapy. The physical therapists at the facility have an entire gym filled with equipment to help patients get back to their highest level of physical function.

Skilled nursing care is another service provided by the South Central Health system to expedite recovery.
