Adaptable Rehabilitation

As patients progress through their care program, the same intensive plan may not be necessary. As part of our regular process, patients undergo reassessments to determine their progress and enable their care team to make adjustments to their plan. Ongoing adjustments can be made to the patient’s rehabilitation plan between the periodically scheduled full assessments. For patients that don’t require intensive rehabilitation stays at our facility, we also provide outpatient care.

The Chowan River Lifestyle

Our staff prides itself on knowing not just our patients’ names, but their personal habits as well. Not only does this allow our staff to interact at a more meaningful level with each patient, it ensures that we can continue to provide personalized care for each and every resident at our facility. Nurses and staff are rooted in the tight-knit Edenton community of only 5,000, and many have worked in town for a very long time. Edenton is their home and their patients’ community is their community.

Understanding the residents goes beyond simply knowing their names, likes and dislikes. It’s about understanding habits, patterns and needs; things like redirecting memory care patients who become lost or confused or scheduling enriching activities that help nourish a patient’s mind and soul and not just their body.

Chowan River strives to provide these enriching therapeutic services to patients as community activities as well. For instance, church services are available almost every day for residents that wish to attend.
