Short-Stay Rehab

Hillsdale Hospital provides high-qaulity care for short-term rehabilitation residents to ensure the best possible outcome along with their extended recovery. Our short-term stays are meant for patients who need additional care, but not hospitalization.

Long-Term Care

Transitioning to a long-term care facility can be scary for patients and loved ones. Our dedicated staff goes above and beyond to make our long-term care facilities feel like home for patients who can no longer live safely on their own.

Respite Care

When caregivers experience burnout, the quality and durability of their care suffer. Our skilled nursing facility offers short-term respite care stays to give caregivers a chance to rest. When your loved one is safe and cared for, you can have peace of mind while you’re spending time with other friends and family or enjoying a vacation. At Hillsdale Hospital’s 38-bed hospital-based facility, we offer a temporary second home for your loved ones in respite care.

Respite care services include:

  • Delivery of medication
  • Meals and snacks
  • Assistance with bathing and dressing
  • Social interaction with staff and other residents
  • Scheduled activities
  • Laundry services
