Local elected officials and healthcare gurus cut the ribbon on a newly renovated Sheepshead Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on Sept. 18.
The state-of-the-art facility shutdown for a roughly yearlong renovation, but the new and improved facilities were well worth the wait, according to one administrator, who said patients can now rely on the center as a one-stop-shop for all their therapeutic needs.
“There is a reason why so many patients upon discharge from a hospital after having surgery choose us; they know they can get all their therapies in one spot and this is beneficial for their recovery,” Kahan said.
The Knapp Street nursing home now features modernized living spaces tricked out with custom-made furniture, flat-screen TV’s, and electronic beds that can be adjusted for the perfect night’s sleep.
The nursing home even features a mock supermarket, giving patients the opportunity to practice their shopping for dinner — without the fear of injury.
“There is a lot of pain involved with therapy, and we anted to make it a fun place to relieve some of that pain,” Kahan said.
And the upgrades weren’t just practical, but cosmetic too, according to another executive, who said clients can expect to be rehabilitated in style.
“It doesn’t look like a health care facility, it looks like home,” Mishiyeva said.
