Villa at Villa at Palos Heights’s Clinical Programs:
Alzheimer’s/Dementia and Memory Care
Villa centers provide gender-specific, tiered memory-care support in a safe and nurturing environment, with emphasis placed on enhancing our guests’ daily life skills.
Villa’s on-site primary-care physicians take a comprehensive approach to cardiac care. At our centers, our physicians help guests recover from life-altering cardiac events by providing the rehabilitation, coaching, and support necessary to make lifelong adjustments to their diets, levels of activity, responses to stress, and management of medication.
Ventricular Assist Device (VAD) Care
Villa centers that offer VAD care have trained staff on how to use and maintain VAD equipment, including changing dressings around the driveline exit site. Villa staff are also trained to educate VAD guests on how to sleep, batch, and exercise with VAD. Our teams ensure that all medications are taken properly and that recommended nutrition guidelines are followed.
At Villa, we approach long-term care as a range of services and supports needed to meet our guests’ personal care needs. We assist our long-term guests with basic personal tasks, such as bathing, dressing, eating, and so on.
Medically Complex and Post-Surgical Care
With physicians and advanced-practice nurses rounding daily, Villa Healthcare centers are able to manage the needs of people with multiple diagnoses, advanced post-surgical needs, or complex medication requirements.
Orthopedic Rehabilitation Therapy
For Villa guests who are recovering from surgeries or injuries, our Orthopedic Rehabilitation Therapy program offers a comprehensive rehabilitation and pain-management protocol. Our licensed therapists are led by primary-care physicians and specially trained to help Villa guests reach their full potential and return home with confidence in the shortest appropriate time frame.
Palliative and Hospice Care
Villa centers provide attentive end-of-life care to patients and support the needs of their loved ones in a respectful, compassionate, and comfortable setting.
At Villa centers, we ensure that all guest medications are carefully managed. Of course, we take care of making sure guests receive the proper medications at the proper times, but this also means performing assessments of preexisting medications and their interactions with medications related to the current admission.
Pulmonary and Respiratory Care
Villa’s pulmonary and respiratory care programs are led by board-certified primary-care physicians. The specialized medical care they provide is combined with respiratory, physical, and occupational therapy in order to maximize our guests’ functional independence, energy conservation, and endurance.
At Villa, your health is of primary importance to us. We continue our care for our guests even after they’ve been discharged. Our team checks on the well-being and health of guests in order to prevent complications and future hospital readmissions.
Stroke/Movement Disorder Recovery
With board-certified primary-care physicians and a full complement of experienced physical, occupational, and speech therapists on staff, Villa centers provide our guests with research-based protocols, daily comprehensive therapy, medication management, and long-term skilled care for guests with complex neurological conditions.
Villa centers are committed to ensuring that guests transition seamlessly back to their homes and communities.
Weekly rounds at Villa centers are conducted under the direction of a certified wound specialist. In conjunction with our head nursing staff, our wound specialists attend to guests individually in an effort to prevent infection and maintain exceptionally high success rates in healing even the most difficult wounds.
