For seniors in Southwest Virginia who want to stay connected to their communities, The Landmark Group offers three locally-owned health care facilities in pastoral settings that provide a full spectrum of care from short-term rehabilitation to assisted living care.
These include the Blue Ridge Nursing Center and the Landmark Assisted Living Center located on the same campus in Stuart, and the Highland Ridge Rehab Center in Dublin.
Centers in Stuart, Virginia
In Stuart, the Landmark Assisted Living Center offers assisted living and amenities such as restaurant-style meals, beauty and barber shop, social and educational events, recreational activities, game rooms and community gardens. Medication and pharmacy services, nursing support, and inpatient and outpatient rehabilitative care are available.
The adjacent Blue Ridge Nursing Center features short-term and long-term care, therapy, and nursing services. The new on-site Therapy Connection rehabilitation program combines physical, occupational, and speech therapies with a transitional care model to provide a full continuum of care. Therapy Connection is ideal for respite care, post-operative care, or traditional strength and endurance training.
The staff also works with family members to help them provide patients with a smooth transition back home. A separate therapy community entrance, private rooms, and a family gazebo picnic area are available.
The center also offers services for people seeking long-term care including specialized services for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia and those in need of pain management and skilled care nursing.
The centers share transportation services and a greenhouse run by residents.
According to Administrator Karen Thompson, “Our team is continually researching the most modern techniques and services to promote wellness and expedite a quick home-return! We are the Therapy Connection with a proven record of success!”
Rehab Center in Dublin, Virginia
In Dublin, the Highland Ridge Rehab Center offers skilled nursing services and rehabilitation in an inpatient and outpatient setting. The campus recently underwent a $5.5 million dollar renovation project and expanded therapy services to include aquatic therapy and new private and semi-private rooms.
The aqua therapy program benefits people with arthritis, athletic injuries, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and joint replacements, and those with balance and coordination problems. A professional team works with patients’ physicians to design and implement a care plan to meet their specific needs. Short-term or long-term stays are available with 24-hour-a-day nursing services.
“We want our clients to be at their highest functional capability as soon as possible. We succeed only when we meet and exceed the expectations of our customers,” said Victor Williams, president and CEO of The Landmark Group.
Williams noted that all three health care centers also focus on respecting and enriching the communities in which they do business. “These standards allow The Landmark Group to set and deliver the highest quality service; ‘Our Heart Is In It!’” he said, quoting the company’s motto.
Adjusting to Health Care Changes
To meet new health care requirements and challenges, The Landmark Group is expanding it services to meet different kinds of needs. They are beginning the transition to online medical records, implementing new quality measures, and tracking new data trends.
