    La Jolla Nursing and Rehabilitation Center provides both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care at the highest standards. We provide comprehensive skilled nursing care using state-of-the-art medical equipment and progressive treatment plans promoting quality care. An interdisciplinary care team made up of nursing staff, therapist(s), resident dietician, activities and social services develop a customized plan of care that addresses specific care needs and therapy goals necessary for the resident.

     

    Our primary goal is to improve the resident's function to the highest level of independence possible. We have state of the art modalities and equipment and specialized programs that assist us in this process.

     

    Our facility proudly receives numerous admissions and several of those residents were sent to a lower level of care. This includes discharges to home, assisted living facilities, and board and care facilities. A good percentage of our skilled therapy admissions were able to successfully return residents to live within their own community. This is a true testament to the dedication and hard work of our talented therapy and nursing staff. In addition, La Jolla Nursing & Rehab is a top performer in medical care quality measures.
