Kirkland Village provides 24-hour personalized care and special services to Kirkland Village residents based on their unique individual needs. Our services include a range of long- and short-term skilled nursing care services, including rehabilitation therapy, care for people with Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of memory impairment, respite, and hospice services. Both inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation are available, enabling people to stay in the comfort of their home whenever possible. If needed, a Rehab technician can provide transportation to and from outpatient therapy sessions. In addition, if you are admitted for a respite stay, recuperative care, or short stay rehabilitation, our discharge planning support will help to ensure everything is ready for your return home.
In addition we have embraced new technology, like Point of Care, to further enhance the lives of the people we serve. Point of Care is a real-time computerized resident information system which enables licensed nursing staff as well as nursing assistants to access resident care needs and assignment information. This enables them to complete documentation at the time the observation and care occur. Armed with laptops and using a simple point and click interface, users can document with accuracy and speed. Nursing assistants are now “charting as they go” instead of waiting until the end of their shifts and trying to remember what happened throughout the day.
We're just minutes from Lehigh Valley Hospital, St. Luke's University Health Network, Sacred Heart Hospital, and Coordinated Health. In addition, we are pleased to be a preferred provider with St. Luke's University and Health Network for older adults no longer needing the acute care of a hospital, yet more than can be provided at home. We are also a part of the Presbyterian Senior Living Network which is accredited by CARF International. This represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and is widely regarded as a “seal of excellence.”
