Special Services/Care

Our tag line “Innovation with Compassion” defines how we approach each day. As health care needs change, we address new areas with a caring, concerned emphasis on each resident.            

Advanced Wound Care
Rocky Knoll has  a team of professionals dedicated to caring for residents with wounds that resist the traditional healing process. Chronic, non-healing wounds can greatly affect mobility and quality of life so it’s important they are treated specially.  Certified wound care nurse on staff.

Residents requiring advanced wound care may have diabetes, suffer from chronic circulatory issues, have pressure ulcers, have experienced traumatic injury, or had a surgery or another medical treatment.

Our staff work with your physician to determine a treatment plan and then provide individual attention and care to address your special needs.

IV Therapy
Intravenous (IV) therapy is administering a liquid directly into a vein. This is the fastest means to deliver fluids and medications throughout the body. Certain medications can only be given intravenously.

You may need IV therapy when you have experienced a serious infection, or your doctor may prescribe this to prevent a potential illness. If you have had a lengthy illness, you may need to replenish your fluids and IV is commonly used for this.                       

Tube Feedings
After a stroke or a brain injury many people find it is difficult to swallow. A feeding tube may then be used to take care of your nutritional needs. For short term use the tube may be inserted through the nasal passageway and for longer use a tube is placed directly into the stomach through the abdominal wall. This second type is called a percutaneous endoscopic gastronomy (PEG) tube. Feeding tubes, while not painful and not visible when wearing  clothes, do require special care.

We work with guests who require tube feeding to increase quality of life, maintain appropriate weight levels, and follow nutritional requirements.

Tracheotomy Care
For those people with a severe lung disorder, neurological concern, or infection making it impossible to breath, a doctor may do a tracheotomy to keep the windpipe open and the supply of air to the body going. We can take care of changing the trach parts and suctioning to keep it clear and functioning well.

C-PAP
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines are mainly used at home for the treatment of sleep apnea, but have also become used more widely as a form of ventilation for other conditions. Because a CPAP machine is a medical device, you need a doctor’s prescription for it.

Hospice
 The concept of hospice, compassionate care for those in the last stages of an incurable disease or near the end of life, has become well known in recent years. Our goal is to enable guests to continue alert and pain-free living and to manage other symptoms so that the last days are spent with dignity and quality, surrounded by their loved ones and a staff dedicated to compassionate care.  

Through a coordinated effort with local professionals expertly trained to address all the concerns of hospice, our team coordinates your hospice care. Your team may include nurses, therapists, a chaplain, and volunteers to assure physical, spiritual, emotional, and social support. Through consistent communication with your family we keep everyone informed of your condition and what to expect. This gives everyone a chance to share feelings, talk about expectations, and learn about death and the process of dying. Both you and your family can experience the support and peace of mind of our care.   

Medicare does cover hospice care and many private insurance providers also cover the services.
