Coordination of Care:
Each resident’s health care needs are under the direct supervision of a registered nurse manager. Residents and their families are encouraged to attend Resident Care Meetings, an interdisciplinary team meeting, to review and make comments on their care plan.
Our Rehabilitation department provides services five to six days a week based on the recommendations of each resident’s physician. Many people, who are medically stable, but not ready to go home, come to the Schofield Residence for short-term rehabilitation therapy.
Therapy provided can include:
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Speech-language pathology and audiology
The goal of therapy is to restore or maintain residents’ highest functional abilities to enhance dignity and comfort while promoting independence.
The Nursing department provides ambulation and range of motion that complements the resident’s therapy program and recommendations.
Schofield can arrange for many specialized services to be provided on-site. For the resident, and their family, this eliminates many trips to physicians outside the facility.
Specialized health-care services that can be provided on-site include:

Meals are an important part of our lives. We strive to make mealtimes special for our residents and offer restaurant style dining in our bright and spacious Garden Café.
Our Dietary Services employees provide a variety of balance meals with the individuals’ nutritional needs and personal preferences in mind. Varieties of diet textures are offered which enables us to provide each resident with the optimum texture they can tolerate. This allows us to adjust many food items so residents may continue to enjoy the foods with which they are familiar.
