Subacute Care Unit

When the resident is ready to leave the hospital but is not ready to resume independent living, Cobble Hill Health Center’s subacute unit is the bridge to complete health. After admission, residents are evaluated by a physician and other members of the subacute team.

A comprehensive care plan is designed to ensure a quick and complete recovery, incorporating rehabilitation, psychological support and education for the resident and family. Nursing and medical care are outstanding and the care plan is reviewed and updated regularly.

Our goal is to restore our residents’ independence and help them return to community living. Access to the latest medical interventions and a skilled nursing staff help that happen.

Palliative Care

Cobble Hill Health Center provides treatment that enhances comfort and the quality of an individual’s life during the last phase of life. Our Palliative Care Program is a philosophy of care that accepts dying as a natural part of life. When death is inevitable, palliative care seeks neither to hasten nor postpone it.

At the center of palliative care is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so.

We offer a Palliative Care Program designed to ease the outcome of a terminal diagnosis by providing relief from distressing symptoms, by providing pain management therapy and by focused treatment so the resident is kept as comfortable as possible. An interdisciplinary team gives residents and families living with a life-threatening or terminal illness, care that is focused on alleviating suffering and promoting quality of life. Major concerns are pain and symptom management, information sharing and advance care planning, psychosocial and spiritual support, and coordination of care.

At Cobble Hill, the resident’s needs are assessed and all treatment options are explored and evaluated in the context of the individual’s values and symptoms. Our trained staff is sensitive to the resident’s choices and decisions regarding the course of care.

Why Palliative Care?

Unique physical, emotional, spiritual, social and financial needs occur during the final phases of life-limiting illness. Cobble Hill’s Palliative Care Team is comprised of experienced, skilled specialists who work with the attending physician and family to develop care which meets the resident/family needs and wishes. The focus is on caring, not curing.

Who Uses Palliative Care?

Palliative Care serves persons of any age with any life-limiting illness. Among the illnesses our residents have had are:

  • Cancer
  • Cardiac disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Renal disease
  • Neurological illnesses
  • Lou Gehrig’s disease
  • Cirrhosis.

What Is Palliative Care?

Patients recovering from:

Cobble Hill Health Center’s Palliative Care Services provide medical care and emotional and spiritual support to people and their families who face life-limiting illness.

  • A compassionate approach to care that helps people with serious illness live life fully, maintain their dignity and keep personal control over their lives. Available to anyone with an illness whose life expectancy is measured in months, rather than years.
  • A family-centered approach that includes, a team of doctors, nurses, social workers, counselors, and trained volunteers who collaboratively focus on the dying resident’s physical, psychological, or spiritual needs.
  • A symptom management approach that helps keep the resident as pain-free and lucid as possible, with loved ones nearby until death.

When to Consider Palliative Care

At any time during a life-limiting illness, when curative treatments are no longer effective, palliative care treatments for comfort care are usually indicated.

Cobble Hill’s palliative care philosophy recognizes that our residents have come to consider this facility their home and our staff part of their extended family. Our innovative program allows terminally ill residents to continue to live in a familiar environment while receiving additional services.

Cobble Hill is one of the few skilled nursing facilities in New York City to offer Palliative Care. To discuss a referral, obtain additional information, or arrange for a tour, please contact the Director of Admissions at 718-855-6789 extension 110.

All services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid & most managed care contracts. We also accept private pay.

Alzheimer’s Special Care Unit

For over a decade, the Cobble Hill Health Center has led the way in caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease. Our comprehensive approach includes program development, research, training, community-based care and caregiver support. We have received the “Best Practices” award and have been recognized by numerous state and national associations. Staff members are specially trained to ensure residents’ comfort and offer increased support to family and friends as the disease progresses, through our palliative care program.

Alzheimer’s Disease Program

People with Alzheimer’s disease benefit from stimulation and individualized care. At the Cobble Hill Health Center, we address the varied needs and interests of residents with Alzheimer’s disease by offering a range of programs. There is no cure for this chronically disabling disease – but people can continue to enjoy life that has meaning at Cobble Hill Health Center.

Residents are engaged in conversation, participate in small-group programs. On a typical day, residents assist in preparing meals, listen to music or play board games. Specially trained staff are available all day interacting with residents and meeting the participants’ diverse social, physical and emotional needs.

Love That Lasts

The best program is only as good as the staff that makes it work. At Cobble Hill, our interdisciplinary staff is professional and compassionate. They are committed to delivering excellent care, and they do! Many of our nurses and nursing assistants have worked at Cobble Hill for over 20 years which fosters a team effort. They know each resident, and how that resident changes over the months and years; it’s reflected in their personalized approach. Increasingly diverse cultures require that staff members speak more than one language, (Spanish, French, Russian, Romanian) and are familiar with a wide range of customs, cuisines and continents.

Caring For Caregivers

At Cobble Hill’s Admissions Department you’ll find caring professionals to assist you during this stressful time. Whether it’s arranging a tour of our program or providing you with financial and insurance information, our trained staff will make things go smoothly.

“Concierge Care”

To make the transition from home to facility smooth, our concierges — experienced staff members trained to provide personal, one on one support during the first few weeks following admission —ensure that residents are adjusting well to their new environment and that issues are addressed in a timely manner. Throughout the year, educational seminars and special events for caregivers address questions and concerns.
