The Suites Rio Vista built-in 2015 is a rehab in Albuquerque, NM, that offers rehabilitation services and long-term care. We specialize in post-acute rehabilitation in a home-like setting to help you heal and recover.

Difference between skilled nursing and long term care

While both focus on elderly care, a skilled nursing facility is more like a hospital stay and offers medical, rehabilitative services to its residents. Most patients return home after a certain period of rehab treatment in a skilled nursing facility. On the other hand, a nursing home focuses on offering non-medical support with services like assistance with eating, getting dressed, medication supervision, etc. Both the type of facilities engage the elderly in social and recreational activities to help them lead a better quality of life.

At our rehab center, we offer both skilled nursing services as well as long-term care. We are set in a serene and natural environment that offers seniors the perfect ambiance to heal and recover. We offer 24/7 physician support, rehabilitation therapies, and conduct life-enriching activities for the elderly. We are one of the best treatment facilities in New Mexico to offer the best rehab services and long-term care in a state-of-the-art nursing facility.

Gastric sleeve diet

Bariatric patients undergo gastric sleeve surgery to reduce the size of their stomachs from their original size in an attempt to curb overeating. After surgery, these patients start to feel full after consuming a small portion of food. However, the success of this surgery depends on the aftercare diet post-surgery.

We offer exclusive bariatric care services for patients that undergo gastric sleeve surgery, and for those trying to lose weight in a non-invasive approach. We make sure that our patients eat smaller meals at frequent intervals, and our registered dietician plans their day to day diet. Our dietician is an expert in the gastric sleeve diet and plays a pivotal role in helping patients recover from surgery and in preparing them for lifelong healthy eating. We also offer a pre-operation diet for patients undergoing a gastric sleeve procedure and supervise a four-phase diet following the procedure.

Qualities to seek for in a nursing home

When you look for a nursing home or an assisted living facility for an elderly adult, make sure to examine the nursing home’s proximity to your place of residence, a hospital, and their friends. Talk to the current residents of the nursing home to know more about the facility and services.

Examine factors like staff-to-patient ratio, the upkeep of the facility, the quality of the food they serve, their rehabilitation services, etc. Talk to the staff in the nursing home and see if they are caring, compassionate, and supportive. Lastly, evaluate their services, amenities, and the prices they charge.

 Contact our rehab in Albuquerque, NM, for more information on our full range of services. At The Suites Rio Vista, we accept most managed care insurances, Medicaid, and medicare.

Our daughter went through rapid detox about 4 months ago. She was addicted to opiates after pain suffered in a car accident over 2 years ago. Through counseling, she finally decided that she "wanted to get her life back." We did not know that she was addicted, but we knew that she was in constant pain,

I went from website to chat rooms to this or that…I’ve ended up at Dr. Yee’s sight for a variety of reasons. I am a “middle-age” woman (did I say that)...
