Planning Tips

If you are scheduling an orthopedic procedure or operation, your surgeon likely will recommend post-acute care to ease the transition from hospital to home and help you recover more quickly and effectively. At Walnut Place, we accept pre-registration for transitional care and would be happy to offer a tour of our post-acute care floor. We’ll also offer details about what to pack for your stay. Feel free to give us a call to discuss.

“A 20-year veteran in long-term care shares her thoughts about the Walnut Place staff and programming. She says: "For 30+ nights, I slept in the other bed in my mother's room and experienced first-hand the care delivery. I feel I must recognize the teammates who have impressed me as clear industry standouts.”

-Adult Child/Long-Term Care Industry Professional

“It was a tough decision to not take my mother to my employer at the time of admission, but I have to say I have absolutely ZERO regrets for being led to and choosing Walnut Place. It has been a very positive experience and the therapy services, especially the team that worked with my mother, were excellent.”

-Therapy Staff

“I have never encountered such a solid, professional team in long-term care Life Enrichment.
