There’s still so much we don’t know about how the brain compensates for the damage caused by stroke. In some cases, the brain cells may be only temporarily damaged, and may resume functioning over time. In other cases, the brain can reorganize its own functioning. Every once in a while, a region of the brain “takes over” for a region damaged by the stroke. Stroke survivors sometimes experience remarkable and unanticipated recoveries that can’t be explained.
Rehabilitation may mean, in some cases, re-learning basic skills such as bathing, eating, dressing and walking. Our nursing and rehabilitation teams work together with you and your family, to achieve maximum recovery and independence.
Our Pulmonary Program seeks to provide the best practice guidelines for treating Chronic Lung Disease, in the post-acute setting, in order to help patients with moderate to severe breathing problems overcome their physical limitations.

Heart failure is almost always a chronic, long-term condition, although it can sometimes develop suddenly. This condition may affect the right side, left side, or both sides of the heart and can significantly impact quality of life.
Our cardiologists, physicians, nurse practitioners, and dieticians work together with our therapist to develop a care plan that can improve heart function, lesson symptoms, allowing you to lead a more active life.
Autumn Grove offers a truly one of a kind, dementia/behavioral care center. All caregivers have advanced training and understand the unique needs of our residents. Staff are trained to provide assistance with activities of daily living, such as eating, bathing, dressing and walking, as well as how to handle the specific needs of those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. This training includes understanding how the disease manifests, and knowing why dementia patients may exhibit certain behaviors.
Since individuals with dementia may easily become stressed and confused, a special emphasis on creating a relaxing environment is very important. At Autumn Grove, individual attention is given to each resident by staff whom they’ve grown to love and trust.
Activities are structured for all cognitive levels so that every resident feels a sense of purpose, dignity and value.
