Step-down / Rehab

Acacia Care offers comfortable step down care for its residents. These services benefit a person who has spent some time in hospital as a result of an illness, a stroke or an operation and is requiring care to recuperate before returning back home.

If they are medically stable and no longer need to be in a hospital environment and can be discharged to a care facility, Acacia Care is the preferred place to be.

These services offer short-term, temporary relief to those who are caring for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.
