Programs & Services
We’re happiest when you’re Healthy at Home.
Carson Nursing and Rehabilitation Center staff does frequent Interdisciplinary rounds where our nurses, rehabilitation staff, care coordinators, discharge planners and others, carefully assess and plan each residents individualized care plan. We’ve found these clinical team approaches to be an exceptional way to ensure that both our short-term rehabilitation residents and our long-term residents (and their loved ones) are assured of receiving the finest level of care anywhere!

Homeward Bound Program
Homeward Bound is short-term rehabilitation program, which focuses on addressing the specific needs of each patient. Treatment programs are individualized in order to allow our patients to reach their maximum potential. Because we believe that family support and education are vital aspects in providing excellence in care and assisting the patient to maximize functional ability and independence, family involvement in the rehabilitation process is encouraged.
Our Physical Therapy program focuses on the identification, prevention and rehabilitation of individuals with physical impairment and pain. Following evaluation, the physical therapist develops an individualized treatment program to address lower extremity and trunk strength, range of motion, balance, coordination, functional movement, ambulation, endurance, and pain reduction.
The Occupational Therapy program addresses activities of daily living skills, including eating, dressing, hygiene, and home management tasks. It also provides treatment interventions for upper extremity function, cognition, perception and community reintegration.
Our Speech/Language Therapists provide a continuum of services including assessment, education and treatment of patients with communication, cognitive and swallowing problems. Treatment programs are directed towards improving communication skills in the areas of comprehension and expression. Patients admitted to the facility that are receiving nutrition partially or exclusively via gastrostomy tube are evaluated for their potential to return to solid foods as appropriate.
Carson Nursing and Rehabilitation Center provides both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care at the highest standards. We provide comprehensive skilled nursing care using state-of-the-art medical equipment and progressive treatment plans promoting quality care. An interdisciplinary care team made up of nursing staff, therapist(s), resident dietitian, activities and social services develop a customized plan of care that addresses specific care needs and therapy goals necessary for the resident.
