Skilled Nursing

plum-848x400-29

Skilled nursing is needed when you or your loved one requires a licensed nurse to manage, observe, or evaluate your care. Our nurses are compassionate and well trained, and they truly care about each resident.

We understand that the transition to a skilled nursing community can be challenging, and we strive to make the process easier with our friendly staff, ongoing activities and special events, social services, and our beautiful and comfortable community.

At Auburn Ravine Terrace we have a Medical Director who coordinates and approves medical services, and a Director of Nursing who oversees all aspects of healthcare within the community. 

To ensure each resident receives the care they need, we provide:

  • A Director of Nursing that oversees all aspects of healthcare within our facility
  • Hospice program
  • Respite Care
  • Wound Care
  • Catheter Care
  • Colostomy care
  • Ileostomy care
  • Nutrition & hydration programs
  • Medication management & education
  • Pain management
  • Bowel & bladder programs
  • Psychologist Services
  • Audiology Services
  • Laboratory testing and X-rays
  • Off-site dialysis
  • Diabetic management and education
  • Restorative nursing
  • Foot care program

Diabetes Management

Our nurses work with residents to take control of their diabetes. They help monitor blood glucose levels, administer and track insulin, plan menus, and provide education. Our hope is that our residents will leave us with better control over their diabetes care.

Dietary Program

Our registered dietitian designs our dietary program with the residents in mind. We follow physician orders to meet the needs of each resident, while making sure the meals are enjoyable and full of flavor. We also administer oral supplements, as prescribed by physicians, and provide regular nutritional assessments by our on-site registered dietitian.
