My mother had a wonderful rehabilitation experience at Golden View. She still talks about the friendly staff, the clean facility, she felt safe at all times with out threat or fear of falling. Mom comments still on how there was always a staff member to help her to the bathroom, get dressed as well as washed up.

Her medications were always on time with all explanation to her of any changes. She remarks on how comfortable she was in her chair by the window waiting each day for her two visits from the physical therapy, speech and occupational therapy. They were always upbeat and happy. They lifted my spirits each day."

Transitional Care Center or Short Stay Rehabilitation

Returning You Quickly and Successfully to Your Life

When facing recuperation following surgery, illness or injury, you need to be confident about your choice for rehabilitative and post hospital care. At Golden View, our experienced, licensed professional therapists and nurses work closely with individuals, their family, and doctors to develop and implement tailored treatment plans.


Here at Golden View, each treatment plan is customized for optimal outcomes, to accelerate recovery whenever possible, and with the flexibility to afford individuals progressing more slowly with the opportunity to receive extended care and therapy to facilitate a safe and successful transition to home. Listen in to Golden View's Christine Farrell, Director of Case Management, speak with Aging Well's Howard Chandler about our Transitional Care Center, The Retreat at Golden View!


Because we believe our patients deserve the best, our skilled and experienced in-house rehabilitation program provides the one-on-one therapy, instruction and education necessary for a speedy recovery. It's a difference you'll come to expect after rehabilitating at Golden View!
