6 Reasons to Select Bladen East for Skilled Nursing Care

We will treat you like family.

If we had to boil down all of the reasons to select Bladen East, that one would be the most vital.

Because nothing is as important as family.

Maybe your parent lives across the country from you and you’re not able to visit as often as you’d like. Perhaps you have a demanding job that keeps you from caring for your spouse or loved one.

We understand. You’re not alone.

That’s why we know how important it is to treat all our residents with dignity and respect. We provide encouragement, support and world-class care.

Of course, there are more reasons to select Bladen East as an assisted living or skilled nursing facility. We’ve outlined a few of them below.

But first, you may be wondering, what is skilled nursing?

What Is Skilled Nursing?

Skilled nursing is a specialized type of care where a certified health care team takes care of inpatient residents in a community, nursing home or a skilled nursing facility.

In other words, it’s round the clock nursing services for those who need them most.

This may involve helping a resident after a stroke or accident. It could involve assisting them with bathing or dressing. It could even focus on teaching them how to walk again after a hip or knee replacement.

1. We Offer Extensive Wound Care Services

Non-healing wounds are serious.

At best, they are painful and inconvenient—at worst, they could lead to amputation. That’s why we believe it’s vital to offer quality wound care services at Bladen East.

Non-healing wounds can be caused by a wide variety of conditions such as diabetes, poor circulation, infection or repeated trauma to the area.

We have the expertise and experience to help you or your loved one with this condition. We utilize a wound vac to decrease pressure on the wound. As a result, it heals faster.

We’d love to talk to you about our wound care services. Give us a call.

6. We Have Stimulating and Creative Activities

Any facility can boast that they have an interesting schedule of activities, but Balden East takes it a step further.

We’ll tell you what we mean.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, residents could not gather in our large activity room. This was for their safety. However, we still wanted to provide them the stimulation they wanted—especially since the pandemic made it impossible for relatives and friends to visit.

So we simply devised a bingo game that could be easily played with the residents in their rooms. We made a decorative activity cart and brought interesting games to them.

We were able to create hours of fun while practicing social distancing and following all Centers for Disease Control guidelines.
