Pacific Coast Manor’s Stroke Recovery Program
The type and severity of a stroke influences the care and services required by residents with this diagnosis. Even residents with a history of a stroke in their past may still exhibit the lasting effects of stroke. The team at Pacific Coast Manor strives to help residents recuperate to their highest possible level. The best outcome is for residents to be able to return home on their own, but sometimes, due to the nature of illnesses and other conditions they may need additional help in their home or may need continued care at the nursing facility.

No matter what the cause or the type of wound, Pacific Coast Manor’s team consisting of nurses, aides, wound nurse, physicians, pharmacy and laboratory all come together to help minimize pain, heal the wound and prevent recurrences. We also work very closely with the wound care center in Watsonville for those needing the more extensive services that they can offer.
Pacific Coast Manor’s Hospice Coordination Services
Hospice care may be provided in a variety of settings chosen by the patient or family such as the home, RCFE/assisted living or in a nursing facility like Pacific Coast Manor. Regardless of the setting, hospice care seeks to offer support to the terminally ill patient so that their final days may be spent with dignity in a setting appropriate for their care. Hospice care also offers counsel to family members and staff during the terminal phase of an illness and through supportive bereavement services after death.
