The Laurels of Massillon provides a complete range of services for patients that are unable to return home after a hospitalization. Our clinical programs provide a safe transition from hospital to home with a depth of services that cannot be provided through home health. The objective of our transitional care program is to help our guests achieve their goal of reaching their full potential and getting home as soon as possible. Your care is managed through our interdisciplinary care team of attending physicians, nurse practitioners, the Laurel nursing team, in-house therapy teams and social services.
Unlike many other nursing facilities, the Laurel in-house therapy team is available seven days per week to maximize each guests recovery. As you progress to your return home, our therapy team will complete a home safety visit to ensure you have met all of your goals and have the equipment needed to continue your recovery at home. Therapists will also identify any barriers or safety risks in the home setting. Family and Guest education is geared to the specific diagnosis and our social worker will coordinate outpatient therapy or home health services.
The Laurels of Massillon cares for individuals with a wide variety of illness or injuries. Our short-term nursing and rehabilitation programs offer comprehensive care in the following areas:
