JGS Lifecare about to open new Sosin Center for Rehabilitation


FUTURE OF REHAB CARE. A HOME LIKE KITCHEN, AND DEN, AND FIREPLACE, EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN ROOM AND PRIVATE BATHROOM. IT’S THE KIND OF ENVIRONMENT THAT YOU WOULD FEEL COMFORTABLE IN. IF YOU THINK YOU’RE LOOKING AT A BRAND NEW HOUSE.. THINK AGAIN. THIS IS WHAT THE NEW SOSIN CENTER FOR REHABILITATION IN LONGMEADOW LOOKS LIKE.. AND WHEN YOU STEP INSIDE, YOU’RE STEPPING INTO THE FUTURE OF HEALTHCARE. JGS LIFECARE TOOK THE WRAPS OFF OF THEIR REHAB CENTER ON THURSDAY. A REHAB THAT’S DESIGNED TO LOOK MORE LIKE A HOME, THAN A HOSPITAL. THIS ISN’T YOUR TRADITIONAL REHABILIATION CENTER. WHILE PATIENTS STILL HAVE THEIR OWN BEDROOMS AND BATHROOMS AND HOUSES, THE REST OF THE BUILDING IS DESIGNED LIKE A HOUSE, SO PATIENTS CAN EVEN COOK FOR THEREAUPTIC PURPOSES, OR COOK IF THEY WANT TO. WE’RE LOOKING TO HELP THEM DO THE ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING, AND DO IT IN A HOME LIKE SETTING SO THEY CAN MORE QUICKLY TRANSITION BACK TO THEIR OWN HOME. THE CENTER HAS TWO HOUSES, WHICH ARE DESIGNED TO ACCOMODATE 24 SHORT TERM PATIENTS AT A TIME. IT’S THE FIRST REHAB CENTER IN WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS TO IMPLEMENT THE “GREEN HOUSE MODEL,” WHICH HAS BEEN PROVEN TO REDUCE MEDICATION USE AND REHOSPITALIZATIONS, WHILE INCREASING SOCIALIZATION AND ONE ON ONE INTERACTION WITH CAREGIVERS. THOSE IN GREENHOUSE HOMES THEIR LENGTH OF STAY IS TYPICALLY LESS THAN IT WOULD BE IN A TRADITIONAL REHABILIATION FACILITY. THEY’RE ABLE TO REHAB MUCH MORE QUICKLY. IN LONGMEADOW, TS, 22NEWS
