6⭐️ Rehab facility in Ocala, FL. Five stars doesn’t do it for this wonderful team of administrators, nurses, doctors and caregivers at The Lodge. From my initial inquiry and conversation about my mother transitioning in after a brief hospital stay, the team at the Lodge was like FAMILY. If you are in need of a rehab facility or long term care for your loved one - look no further. You will feel confident and you will find a clean, caring, positive and loving environment for your family member. Thank you for all your help, knowledge, support and effort in getting my mother back home after a 10 day stay at The Lodge. Special thanks and shoutout to Cara, Zelia and Patricia! ❤️❤️❤️ Michael

My grandmother stayed at The Lodge. She had a private room. The staff was friendly and put her at ease. Her therapy was top notch

My husband has been in the Lodge for a month. After experiencing 3 other rehabs when the care and attention was horrible. I am so pleased we found The Lodge, the staff has been wonderful. They have been very attentive to his care. Had 5 days of PT sessions. Highly recommend it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I go through rehabilitation at a nursing home?

We have the full rehabilitation set-up including equipment, certified therapists, and a great location. Just like we provide a comprehensive home-like atmosphere for our residents, we do the same for our short-term rehabilitation patients. You will get the great dining, relaxing grounds and courtyards, and 24-hour medical access along with everything else you need for your rehabilitation. Complete rehabilitation requires your therapy sessions as well as relaxing downtime in order to heal.

 

How is a nursing home different from a hospital?

Nursing homes in the past used to be stark, institutional places that were cold and lonely. We cannot stress enough how much nursing homes have changed.

  • Our centers are designed to provide the home-like atmosphere you want for your loved one while still providing any medical care they need.
  • We provide social activities for mind and body well-being, companionship, and socialization.
  • Our dining services are specialized and provided in a posh and comforting dining room.
  • We do not restrict visiting except in certain health crisis situations.
  • We have rehabilitation services for extended care and comfort.
  • Residents can bring personal items with them.
  • We celebrate holidays, birthdays and promote a sense of community.
What safety measures are in place?
Safety measures are one of the reasons families may decide their loved ones are better situated at a nursing home than in their own homes. We have 24-hour nursing and medical staff, medical supplies and equipment, medication and are also designed with fall and safety precautions in mind. We also make sure your loved one is under constant surveillance while still respecting privacy. Locked security systems, cameras, visitor logs, supervised outings, emergency call buttons and more are designed to keep safety and security in place even while in a home-like atmosphere.
What can my loved one bring with them?
We proved all the furniture your loved one needs. We do recommend bringing pictures, a favorite blanket, or cherished knickknacks. We discourage bringing anything of value, electrical items or anything that takes up large amounts of space. When you come for your tour you will get a better idea of what space is available and we can provide you with some suggestions as well.
