Absolut Care of Dunkirk is a forty (40) bed facility located on the shore of beautiful Lake Erie in the City of Dunkirk, NY in Chautauqua County. Our facility specializes in short-term rehabilitation and long-term skilled nursing care. We offer private and semi-private accommodations and encourage our residents to personalize their surroundings with cherished mementoes and favorite possessions from home. Our room fee includes cable television service and phone service in our “Rehab to Home” suites. Telephone service for a long-term stay is available, if desired, at rates established by our local telephone service provider.
While the healthcare industry suffers from a high turn-over rate for direct care and clinical staff, we are proud to point out that many of our staff are long term employees. Their dedication is the cornerstone of our commitment to providing the highest quality of care for our residents. It is the primary reason that many of our residents and families return to us when future health care needs arise.
Our Physical and Occupational Therapists are full-time employees of Absolut Care of Dunkirk. They are fully invested in the successful treatment and rehabilitation of our residents. Our “Care Partnership Program” aligns our Rehab staff closely with a resident’s personal physician/surgeon, so that the prescribed protocols may be implemented and an individualized treatment plan can be developed to meet each resident’s needs. Therapy services are offered 6 days per week, when prescribed, allowing residents the opportunity to progress more rapidly toward their return home.
Our Nutritional Services are supervised by our full-time Registered Dietitian and special attention to personal preferences is the norm. Meals are provided “restaurant-style” in our beautifully appointed dining room. Specialized diets are available based on individual needs. Our activity program offers many different options each day and special events to enhance the quality of life for our residents.
At Absolut Care of Dunkirk, we also specialize in caring for residents and their family as the end of life approaches. Our staff are specially trained in palliative care and are sensitive to the difficulties that residents and family members experience during this time. Our residents are part of our family and we never lose sight of the important role they play in their own family.
Realizing that you have a choice when it comes to decisions you make about your healthcare and the care of your loved one, we make the following commitment: Absolut Care of Dunkirk will provide quality medical and rehabilitative care in a warm and nurturing atmosphere. We pledge to continue our commitment to our community with the goal of excellence in service provision to our residents and their families.
