Oceanview Rehab/Nursing Brings New Health Program To Rockaway

Oceanview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation provider for those who can no longer remain independent in the community, has opened a cardiac and pulmonary short-term program to service the Brooklyn, Queens and Suffolk communities.

This skilled nursing center, located at 315 Beach 9 Street in Far Rockaway, provides customized, professional care services for senior adults and others who are rehabilitating, convalescing or disabled due to disease, chronic conditions or aging.

"We are very excited about bringing a compassionate cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation program where care-giving may be individualized, as needed," says Wendy Trimboli, Administrator. "The program can include up to five stages of service. A guideline is followed to ensure that the best care standards are met. Heart disease may be the leading cause of death for both men and women; Oceanview providers support the residents and their families in learning heart-healthy exercise, life style options that can minimize risk for future problems, and optimize functional fitness,"she added.

A spokesperson for the facility said that the staff, backed by more than 25 years of skilled nursing experience, strives to meet the growing needs of senior adults.

The spokesperson said that Oceanview staff realizes that older adults wish to spend their retirement years living at home, however, at some point in their lives, they are going to require help with the daily demands of life, or their caregivers - the family members who live closest to them - will need some assistance. Oceanview is here for these adults and their families.

"Oceanview's main objective in establishing this cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation program is to rehabilitate, minimize disability, and maximize strength, endurance and confidence, so that the individual can return home," the spokesperson said.
