One of RBSCC's most triumphant accomplishments has been the construction and opening of a state-of-the-art facility for long-term and rehabilitative care, the Buena Vida Continuing Care and Rehabilitative Center. Opened in February 2001, Buena Vida is a 240-bed residential healthcare center providing long-term care and short-term rehabilitation. To ensure that our services remain in touch with the needs of the community, Buena Vida has active resident and family councils.
Our services, which are provided by bilingual staff, include the following:
Primary care is provided to all residents by on-site attending physicians and consultant specialists who are skilled in internal medicine, geriatrics, and family practice as well specialties: ophthalmology, dentistry, podiatry, psychiatry, surgery, orthopedics, radiology, and pulmonary medicine. Registered nurses are on duty round-the-clock.
Rehabilitative therapy is provided for a variety of conditions such as: stroke, trauma, fracture, amputation, joint replacement, neurological and neuromuscular disorders, and gait disorder.
Buena Vida offers a variety of group and individualized therapy programs designed to meet the social, physical, and spiritual well-being of the residents. A full calendar of activities (including music, art, dancing, games and trips) and educational programs are available to those residents wishing to participate.
Certified social workers provide individual, group, and family counseling.
Residents of Buena Vida have a myriad of amenities available including: beautician and barber services, daily newspaper delivery, movies, religious services, happy hour, and volunteer programs.
