New Mason Christian Village Rehab Wing Your Road to Recovery

Recovering from an illness or ailment that limits functionality and independence can be a difficult process, but with the right people to assist and guide the healing process, recovery can be quicker and easier.
“There was a patient who was transferred here from a hospital,” recalls Bob Slade, executive director of Mason Christian Village, “This patient had lost the ability to walk, talk and perform basic, everyday activities.
“After working with our rehab therapists,” continues Slade, “The patient is now able to function independently again! In fact, they were so pleased with our team and our community, they moved into one of our Garden Apartments and made Mason Christian Village their permanent home.” Continuing to ensure such physical rehabilitation success stories are common place at Mason Christian Village. The community plans to open their new rehab wing before the end of the year, which will be an addition to their current nursing area.
Working together with Cincinnati’s top-rated doctors and major hospitals, rehab at the Village is a perfect place for anyone needing short-term nursing care immediately following a hospitalization.
“The new wing will have 20 private suites, a state-of-the-art therapy gym and its own dining room,” explains Lizz Stephens, Mason Christian Village’s marketing director. “The private rooms are equipped with Wi-Fi and have plenty of space for friends and family to visit.”
Not only will the new rooms be spacious and comfortable, but patients will receive Mason Christian Village’s award-winning care.
“This is our second year in a row that we received a deficiency-free state nursing survey,” says Slade, “This contributed to a 5-star rating by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. A very low percentage of nursing centers surveyed receive a 5-star rating.”
The community was also voted “Best of the North Nursing Facility 2013-2014” by readers of Cincy Magazine.
“We have an experienced, long-tenured staff,” says Slade, “Some have been here for more than 10 years. You’ll never meet a more dedicated and compassionate group of people. They give the best, personalized treatment and the level of care a patient needs in order to get them back on their feet and on their way home.”
The peaceful, scenic location is another feature that is a favorite among patients.
Mason Christian Village is located on a vast 75-acre property with tree-lined streets and a beautiful lake.
There are no set visiting hours, so friends and family can come to visit at their convenience.
In addition to rehabilitation, Mason Christian Village offers a full continuum of care with different independent and assisted living options.
Residents enjoy amenities such as an athletic club, woodworking shop, library and salon – all located on-site.
“We believe that ‘total wellness’ encompasses mind, body and spirit,” explains Slade. “Everything we do is done to enhance every aspect of our patients’ lives, including physical nurturing through healthy meal plans, preventive healthcare and fitness activities.
“We have a fulltime Chaplain on-site focused on spiritual wellness who also leads a weekly chapel service,” continues Slade. “ We help stimulate the mind through activities and classes provided by our supportive and caring staff.”
Mason Christian Village seems to have discovered the exact formula needed to help a person regain their independence and live the life they want to live.
