Laurels of Hillsboro offers a full spectrum of post-hospital services, from a short-term rehabilitation stay to long-term nursing care.

We are thrilled to offer our Outpatient Aquatic Therapy Program with the Highland County YMCA to the Hillsboro community!

Aquatic therapy is a specialized form of physical and occupational therapy that allows muscles to relax while helping to reduce joint pain.  Aquatic therapy has many advantages because it promotes muscle relaxation, reduces pain sensation, and decreases muscle spasms.  In fact, water therapy has been proven to be the best environment to achieve full function, regardless of the injury.

People of all ages & swim abilities can benefit from aquatic therapy, including anyone with the following conditions:

  • Post-Surgical Debilitation

Skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) like Ciena Healthcare provide crucial services for our most vulnerable population: the frail and elderly. Today’s SNFs have significantly evolved over time to provide both long-term comprehensive care and short-term rehabilitation services. However, in comparison to other medical settings, especially hospitals, SNFs are often overlooked for important resources and funding.

As health care evolves, skilled nursing facilities are increasingly providing care previously delivered in hospitals. Nationwide, the 65 and older population will double over the next 20 years. By 2040, it could triple. As our population ages, SNFs are becoming increasingly vital to the care and wellbeing of our seniors.

SNFs need advocates and allies to actively engage with their representatives and speak up about important issues facing our industry. This page is designed to share ways you can help support SNFs and the vital services they provide for our elders.

Contact Your Elected Officials and Voice Your Support for SNFs!

It is crucial the voices of SNF supporters be heard by Congress. Members of Congress value their constituents’ opinions and it is critical they hear from our advocates and allies.
