Nexus Health Systems values the ability to partner with families in the care of their loved ones. While our goal is to provide the best care possible, we also know that families and caregivers want to do the same. As a constant source of support and essential participant in your loved one’s care, we understand you play a central role. The information below pertains to a patient’s stay, explaining what to bring, as well as details about our facilities. Our goal is to make you and your loved one feel comfortable before admissions and throughout their time at a Nexus facility.
Each child’s schedule is unique and dictated by the recommendations from the lead physician with the nursing, therapy and allied health team, and are individualized to meet the needs of the patient and family. Ultimately, a patient’s daily activities will vary based upon the patient’s specific needs as well as what is needed in the therapeutic setting to assist the patient with achieving admission goals.
