FORWARD IN REHABILITATION AT ALAMEDA CENTER: A VIP RETURN HOME FOR SUBACUTE PATIENTS!

Alameda Center For Rehabilitation & Healthcare, a foremost provider of subacute rehabilitation and skilled nursing care in Perth Amboy is proud to announce its new “Red Carpet Program”, a VIP send-off for subacute patients who complete the prescribed rehabilitation process and are ready to return home.

Subacute rehabilitation at Alameda Center is comprehensive inpatient care designed for people recovering from a surgery, injury or illness and no longer require acute hospital care. Often an uphill journey, subacute rehab demands lots of work from the patient, and the determination to regain strength, claim back independence and return home to their cherished routines.

“Rehabilitation is aimed at ensuring a safe transition home after a hospital stay” indicates Pinni Friedman, LNHA, Alameda’s administrator. For that transition back home to take place, Alameda’s rehab specialists work diligently with the patients so they can make functional gains within a reasonable amount of time, and attain definite and measurable rehab goals.

Subacute patients admitted to Alameda begin their rehab journey within 24 hours of admission, and usually participate in physical, occupational and sometimes speech therapy sessions led by Alameda’s outstanding therapists in addition to receiving comprehensive services form their team that includes nurses, social workers, psychologists, nutritionists and other specialists as needed.

“Understandably”, says Friedman, “reaching the time of discharge is momentous for our patients, and we recognize their hard work by giving them a VIP farewell that lets them know they have joined the ranks of “Alameda’s Rehab Stars”.

Maximizing patient safety & independence, and making sure the patients return to their daily activities at home with the necessary confidence, the Alameda Team relishes each Red Carpet walk, knowing well the tremendous effort, determination and hard work behind this moment.

Introducing Cardiac Rehabilitation That Speaks The Language of Your Heart

March 13, 2018. Alameda Center For Rehabilitation & Healthcare, a foremost provider of subacute rehabilitation and skilled nursing care in Perth Amboy, is proud to introduce a novel Specialized Cardiac Rehabilitation program that utilizes the most advanced technology and strong rehabilitation techniques, and is focused on helping patients recover quickly, return home and avoid hospital readmission.

Under the direction of Dr. Puneet Sahgal, who holds a Board Certification in Cardiovascular Disease and currently serves as the Chairman at Raritan Bay’s Medical Center Department of Medicine, the multidisciplinary team at Alameda expertly utilizes best evidence-based algorithms, tailoring the clinical care to increase each patient’s ability to conduct activities of daily living and enhance their overall independence.

It is estimated that half of all Americans have at least one of the top three risk factors for heart disease, which is the leading cause of death in the United States: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking.

“Fortunately”, indicates Dr. Sahgal, “heart disease is largely preventable, and there are clinically proven ways for people to reduce their risk, such as stopping to smoke, being more active, and reducing stress.”

This, however, is only part of the equation. Even though it is well-established that stress plays an important role is heart issues, the cause of the stress can be very hard to tackle since it can vary in modality and intensity according to each person’s emotional makeup – and their cultural background.

It is of utmost importance to understand the person to appropriately tailor a course of treatment that will restore them to optimal health – and even of greater importance, to understand how exactly they get stressed to begin with, to prevent a heart condition and avoid any escalation when the patient has been already diagnosed with a heart condition.

“This is precisely what makes our Cardiac Program at Alameda exceptional” says Dr. Sahgal, “because our multicultural, multilingual staff can relate to and understand the cultural nuances that, as you see, can be an important factor in both prevention and recovery, thus making our clinical care personalized and cutting-edge”.
