About Our LivingCenter
In today’s healthcare environment, there are more options than ever. Let us tell you about why we believe Golden LivingCenter - Mount Lebanon is a smart choice.
We offer a range of services, from skilled nursing to long-term, inpatient therapy for conditions including Alzheimer’s, and outpatient short-term therapy. We have a registered nurse on staff 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and we have a certified wound-care nurse, as well. Physical therapy is available seven days a week. A plastic surgeon makes weekly rounds here for patients who need reconstructive medical work and our case managers meet with patients regularly to discuss goals and progress.
We are proud of our patient rehabilitation services. We offer Geriatric Enhanced Modalities (GEM), powered by Aegis Therapies. GEM uses ultrasound, diathermy and electrical stimulation for a variety of treatments including stroke recovery, continence management, joint replacement therapy, wound and osteoarthritis care. These patients enjoy better mobility, less pain, greater joint flexibility, faster recovery, earlier discharge from therapy and an enhanced quality of life.
In addition to this, Golden LivingCenter - Mount Lebanon also offers Aegis’ Freedom Through Functionality (FTF) program. Having the freedom and independence to do for themselves is essential for people to enjoy a full and active lifestyle. To fill this need, FTF uses specially modified Nautilus® fitness equipment for a unique machine-based strength-building program for older adults. This program of strength building is a highly effective way to increase a person's mobility and independence. Potential benefits of FTF include improved quality of life, increased muscle strength, improved body composition, improved mobility, enhanced functional capacity, reduced number of falls and enhanced joint flexibility.
Golden LivingCenter - Mount Lebanon is undergoing several exciting renovations in 2012, including new wood floors throughout, telephones and flat screen televisions in every patient room, along with new linens, quilts and window dressings. Our goal is to provide compassionate care in a home-like setting where you or your loved one will feel at nurtured and comfortable.
Whether your loved one needs a new, long-term home, or short-term help getting active again after an illness or injury, we can help at Golden LivingCenter - Mount Lebanon.
