Our center is a comprehensive skilled nursing facility that specializes in memory/dementia care. We are a locked facility, but also provide 24-hour supervision to ensure the safety of our residents. In addition, we offer a wide variety of activities and services specifically tailored to the individual needs of our residents. For example, physical, occupational and speech therapy are available, as well as restorative programming and pharmacogenetics, which tests DNA to measure the probable effectiveness of specific medications.
In addition, Yorktown Manor offers activities that enhance daily living, such as quiet rooms, gardening, personal story-telling, social events, and worship services. We also work with our residents to create a comfortable, stimulating, and safe home environment.
Our goal is to ensure that our residents achieve and maintain their highest level of function and independence. We are dedicated to meeting their needs in every way possible. That is why our motto is, “Residents First!”
At Yorktown Manor, we understand that no one looks forward to entering a skilled nursing facility, even if it is only for a short-term stay. The role of our Admissions Department is to assist families who need to find immediate placement for a loved one. Often a Discharge Planner or Social Worker at a hospital informs a patient’s primary contact of the need for short term rehabilitation or long-term care placement. Once this decision has been determined, families must quickly choose a facility.
We encourage families to tour and meet with our Admissions staff so they can see the facility first-hand and ask any questions they may have regarding this process. Once the family has chosen a facility, they inform the Discharge Planner or Social Worker of this decision. Next, the Discharge Planer or Social Worker will make an official referral to our facility. Our Social Worker or Nurse Manager, then, conducts an on-site assessment and notifies the referral source, the patient and the family of acceptance.
Admission to Yorktown Manor will be based on the type of care needed, the environment most appropriate for the Resident, and the availability of the accommodations. We truly believe and insist that each Resident receives the best possible care at the least viable cost to the Resident in the most ethical manner, regardless of race, color, handicap, sex, creed, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, arrest or conviction status, marital status or religion.
We accept inquiries and admissions 24-hours a day and 7-days per week including holidays. We also welcome on-site tours at all times. At Yorktown Manor we will always strive to make this challenging transition as smooth as possible for everyone involved.
