Rehabilitation in a Home-Like Atmosphere

Moving away from home doesn’t mean you can’t feel at home.

If you no longer can live alone or need short-term rehabilitation after an illness or surgery, there’s a place that believes in giving the best care, while providing the comforts of home.

Adams Heritage Nursing Care & Rehabilitation Center in Monroeville, Ind., is a top-rated, award-winning facility that creates a homelike atmosphere to improve the quality of life for residents, says Susan Sefton, director of community outreach and marketing.

“Adams Heritage is sometimes referred to as a hidden gem. Located in a rural setting, it is the perfect location for quiet rest, recuperation and rehabilitation. Our quality of care is second to none and our mission is to provide extraordinary living where everyone is family. We believe it is our calling to deliver excellent care and provide our residents and their families with peace of mind.

“We strive every day to provide outstanding service, from our dining experience to the cleanliness of the facility,” Sefton adds. “Every detail is important to us.”

It’s all about freedom of choice.

Residents get up and go to bed on their own schedule and enjoy restaurant-style dining when they want to eat. Other amenities include life enrichment activities in small groups, a beauty and barber shop, a bird aviary, outdoor walking paths, beautiful gardens, a community room for family gatherings, housekeeping and laundry, and a state-of-the-art security system.

Staff help residents with daily living activities such as bathing, dressing and more, if needed. Transportation is available for medical appointments when needed.

A family atmosphere is apparent as soon as people walk through the doors.

“People notice the little things like historic photos and inspiring messages throughout the rooms,” Sefton says. “They see staff sharing laughs and stories with residents. Every day is built around each resident’s interests, abilities and ideas.”

With a consistent five-star rating, the facility has 58 beds in a caring, friendly environment for both long-term and short-term care and rehabilitation. A physician is on call 24 hours a day and a nurse practitioner is always on site.

A team of physical, occupational and speech therapists, all employed by the facility, draw up individualized care plans to help each short-term resident achieve independence and have a better quality of life.

Outpatient physical, occupational and speech therapy is available for those who require more therapy after their stay. Caregivers can also get the support and help they need through the respite care program. Whether going on vacation or needing a break, caregivers can request respite care for a loved one for a few days or a few weeks.

Adams Heritage was originally known as The Village at Heritage. After two decades of research, planning and construction, the high-quality senior care location opened in 2000 for residents of Monroeville, Fort Wayne and surrounding areas. Three years later, the outpatient rehab center opened, and Heritage Hall opened to accommodate family gatherings and special events. The name changed to Adams Heritage in 2012, still owned and operated by Adams Memorial Hospital, a member of Adams Health. Adams Heritage offers Medicare, Medicaid and Managed Care Certified rooms.
