Why Seniors Should Recover from Surgery at MRC the Crossings

After going through the physical and emotional stress of a surgery, it is imperative that your recovery process be a smooth one.  Here are the top five reasons you should plan your post-op recovery at The Crossings.

5.  The Crossings is League City’s only Five Star community.  

      This is the highest rating possible and based on the following criteria according to www.CMS.gov:

  • Health     Inspections – The health inspection rating contains the 3 most recent health inspections and investigations due to complaints. This information is gathered by trained, objective inspectors who go onsite to the nursing home and follow a specific process to determine the extent to which a nursing home has met Medicaid and Medicare’s minimum quality requirements. The most recent survey findings are weighted more than the prior year.
  • Staffing – The staffing rating has information about the number of hours of care provided on average to each resident, each day, by nursing staff. This rating     considers differences in the levels of residents' care needs in each nursing home. For example, a nursing home with residents who had more severe needs would be expected to have more nursing staff than a nursing home where the resident needs were not as high.
  • Quality Measures (QMs) – The quality measure rating has information on 15 different physical and clinical measures for nursing home residents. These QM scores give you information about the community to help facilitate discussions with nursing home staff regarding the quality of care.

4.  The Crossings offers a variety of therapies

Physical therapy is designed to help you regain strength, mobility and balance. Occupational therapy aims to improve the ability to perform everyday tasks and speech therapy enhances communication, eating or swallowing skills. Additionally, we offer IV therapy and wound care.

3.  The Crossings employs a multi-disciplinary team of experienced professionals

In addition to the therapy team, you’ll find that your path to recovery will include the expertise and oversight of our Medical Director, Dr. Roberto Camacho.  Additionally, your care will be enhanced by the contributions of our Healthcare Administrator, Social Worker and Dietician as well as the highly skilled Registered Nurses, Licensed Vocational Nurses and Certified Nurse’s Aides on our team.

2.    The Crossings is a CCRC for all of the “what ifs…”

So what’s next after you discharge from rehabilitation at The Crossings? The goal is always to assist you with a full recovery so that you can go home. However, from time to time, going home is not possible, or at least not yet.  If you suspect that the pathway to getting back home may be a difficult one, as a CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community), The Crossings offers every level of care that might be needed to get you back in the groove. Whether you need a little extra help with daily activities in Assisted Living, or extra attention with more complex needs in Skilled Nursing, we’ve got you covered, on a short-term or long-term basis.  We can even help those diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease in our specialized Memory Support neighborhood.  You don’t have to go it alone, our team of professionals will guide and advise you each step of the way. When you come to The Crossings, we have the know-how as well as the resources to help.    

1.       The Crossings is really fun!

When you choose to do your rehabilitation at The Crossings, you need to know that we work hard but we also play hard!  The therapy team is going to push you for your best during your sessions but you’ll also find that when it’s time to kick-back, we do it in style.  It’s not uncommon to find our staff dressed in costumes to celebrate various holidays, the chef passing around indulgent treats or the lifestyle team ushering in incredible entertainment. It seems there is always SOMETHING exciting happening that brings folks together, widens smiles and ultimately causes those in the midst of a short-term stay to wish they didn’t have to leave.
