The goal of our Passport Program is to restore you to health. We understand that every person under our care has distinct requirements for therapy. Your individual rehabilitation is tailored to a series of realistic, short-term achievements based on getting you home.
Our services are designed to give you the skills and abilities needed to live a healthy and fulfilling life. Whether you’re struggling with physical or post-operative challenges, our dedicated staff will cater to your unique needs and preferences, providing customized therapy in comfortable and finely appointed accommodations.
Often times individuals come to us on a planned basis following a pre-scheduled surgery. Make us part of your “journey” to a more fulfilling life by pre-booking your room and therapy services in advance of your surgery. We will handle all of the “paperwork” for you and your surgeon, by working with Medicare and your insurance carrier to give you one less thing to worry about.

INTERACT II and SBAR
Our INTERACT II Program reduces unplanned hospitalizations, which improves the quality of nursing home care through the utilization of practical tools designed to:
- Aid in the early identification of a resident change of status
- Guide staff through a comprehensive clinical assessment of the resident when a change of condition has been identified
- Improve documentation around resident change in condition
- Promote collaborative communication between health care providers in order to ensure optimum care is being provided
One of the tools within the INTERACT II system is a process referred to as SBAR – Situation, Background, Assessment and Recommendation. The SBAR Program provides a standardized framework for members of the health care team to communicate about a patient’s condition using an easy-to-remember mechanism. SBAR offers a consistent format for information to be sent, as well as an expectation for what information is to be received and how. This technique helps to develop teamwork and foster a culture of patient safety.
