Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation
If you’ve suffered an injury or illness, you often need special care that is focused on your return to every day life. At Presque Isle Rehab and Nursing Center, everything we do is designed to help you return to what is most important to you: normal life. Our rehabilitation team, consisting of physical, occupational and speech/language therapists, works with you to help you regain strength and functioning. Our nurses work with your physician to provide optimal medical care and pain management. We work with patients confronting a variety of conditions, from stroke to Parkinson’s disease, as well as conditions resulting from elective surgeries (like hip or knee replacements), trauma, or recovery from cardiac surgery.Most skilled or rehabilitation patients enjoy single rooms with private bathrooms and showers, offering added privacy during their recovery.

Interdisciplinary care plans are developed with care providers from Nursing, Social Services, Activities, Food Services, and Rehab. Rest assured that Presque Isle Rehab and Nursing Center is prepared to work with your health care provider so that you can recover close to home. No matter where your doctor is, we will communicate regularly with your provider and take you on the follow up visits as needed. Our objective is to help you regain your health and reach your maximum functional ability. Your needs, strengths, and aspirations are the main focus of your recovery plan.
