News is Important During May's tribute to Older Americans, Nursing Home Residents and Stroke Survivors

FORT LEE, N.J., May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- CareOne, New Jersey's largest family-owned and operated senior care provider reports that newly designed hotel-like Centers, and the use of computer technology account for speedier recovery and discharge in rehab patients compared to national averages.

Independent research data demonstrate that 91 percent of CareOne's rehab patients return home versus the rest of the country. CareOne's facilities are less than five years old with state-of-the-art technology, compared to the industry standards of 15 years per age of facility. The result is better quality of care and more cost-effective healthcare delivery.

In 2008, CareOne performed 33% better than all New Jersey skilled nursing and sub-acute care Centers and 112% better than all National skilled nursing and sub-acute care centers according to the Annual Department of Health and Senior Services Quality and Compliance Audits. Additionally, CareOne has been assigned "Good Company Status" by New Jersey Alzheimer's Association.

CareOne is dedicated to the rehabilitation, care, and longevity of patients at its Centers throughout New Jersey. In order to provide the highest quality of care, CareOne brings together skilled nursing, post-hospital rehabilitation, assisted living and long-term living. Additionally, CareOne offers specialized programs for people living with Alzheimer's disease and related memory impairments.

Recent innovations include incorporating Wii stations into patient rehabilitation programs and, It's Never Too Late (IN2L); a computer system for patients for physical rehabilitation as well as memory exercises. Also being utilized is a program called Dakim Brain Fitness, an interactive, touch screen interface offering bold graphics, large type printing and easy to understand exercises, which incorporates 20 years of brain wellness research. Such systems have demonstrated clinical therapeutic benefits for stroke and dementia including improved cognition and improved physical motor status. Additionally, physical therapy services are now available 7 days a week at all Centers.

CareOne's philosophy of enhancing quality of life warrants new a creative approach to engage the individuals they care for. Whether a person is staying in a CareOne facility following a hospital stay on a short-term basis or living in a facility for long term or assisted living services, CareOne incorporates progressive technology into their recreation and rehabilitation programs to keep all of their patients and residents engaged.

"At CareOne we recognize that creating a welcoming environment for our patients as well as their families and guests is crucial to their overall recovery process," said Tim Hodges, Chief Marketing Officer, CareOne. "The services and therapeutic recreation activity we offer to our clients contributes greatly to their overall satisfaction and, most importantly, healing benefits."

CareOne recently instituted an Elegant Dining Program that offers a variety of seasonal and upscale menu choices and honors special requests. The Special Elegant Dining Program offers menus and private space for family gatherings so patients can enjoy a dining experience that's more restaurant-like than institutional."

"Nursing Home Week (May 10-16) is a wonderful time for us to reflect on the importance of the job we do here," said Rick Speas, CareOne's Vice President of Rehabilitation Services. "This year's theme, Nurturing a Love That Lasts, is particularly meaningful to those of us nurturing the health and well-being of our patients."
