It has been thirty-six years since the Henry County Hospital in Abbeville, Alabama was converted into the Henry County Nursing Home. In those thirty-six years, the long-term care industry has experienced many changes and in response, so has the Henry County Health and Rehabilitation Facility (HCHR), including a name change. It is that ability to adapt that has kept this facility as a leader in providing quality care and meeting the changing needs of senior adults. Thirty-six years in the long-term care industry brings with it both experience and knowledge and at Henry County Health and Rehab, the residents and their families are the ones who benefit most from that knowledge.
HCHR understands that placing a family member in a long-term care facility is difficult and that families want options. The desire to provide those options and provide care catered to the individual is evident with the addition of two assisted living facilities in 1997 and a thirteen bed Alzheimer’s wing in 2002. Not only do families want options in care, but they also desire that care to be in an environment that reminds them of home and less like an institution. HCHR underwent a major renovation from 2007-2008. The result was a hotel style front lobby to welcome you, as well as, the addition of a ten bed rehabilitation wing with private rooms and flat screen televisions. HCHR’s most recent addition, however, is its outpatient therapy clinic; opened in January of 2010, providing both senior adults and children a local option to receive occupational, speech, or physical therapy. “Long-term care is constantly evolving,” states facility administrator Chuck Houston. “If your facility does not evolve with it, then you are not truly meeting the changing needs of your residents.”
Evolved it has indeed! HCHR, in the last thirty-six years, has developed into a 142-bed skilled nursing facility with therapy options in both the inpatient and outpatient setting and a specialized Alzheimer’s unit. Its two assisted living residences (Azalea Court in Headland, Alabama and Dogwood Manor in Abbeville, Alabama) provide retirement living for more independent seniors and plays an important role in the continuum of care. With this broad spectrum of services offered, HCHR has become a leader in the industry as a top-notch comprehensive senior care network. “It is challenging work,” says Chuck Houston, “but we are committed and excited to see what the future holds and will continue to ensure that Henry County Health and Rehabilitation adapts to best fit the needs of today’s senior adults.”
