Long-Term Care and Short-Term Inpatient Rehabilitation

Avera Brady Health and Rehab provides a caring atmosphere for individuals requiring long-term care or those undergoing short-term, in-patient rehabilitation. Our facility functions more like a home and less like a medical facility.

Our staff is fully trained in safety and security, and supported by the WanderGuard® System, which sounds an alarm when residents who should not leave the facility unattended approach the door.

  • Spiritual care that includes the services of a chaplain and indoor access to Avera Brady Chapel
  • Round-the-clock staffing that is attentive to residents' needs and regularly receives high marks on resident-satisfaction surveys
  • Assistance with bathing, dressing and personal care conducted in a dignified, resident-focused manner
  • Medication administration to ensure safe, routine dispensing

Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy

We perform a physical, mental and emotional assessment for each resident as the foundation of a care plan in order to meet individual needs and goals. Our desire is to provide each resident with the resources he/she needs for the best quality of life and the fullest health possible.

At Avera Brady Health and Rehab, we have physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech pathologists who provide high-quality, personalized rehabilitation to residents who need it. We offer various levels of care from a range of conditions and disorders, including:

  • Therapy for individuals recovering from orthopedic surgeries and conditions
  • Therapy designed for persons recovering from strokes or coping with Alzheimer's
  • Programs for individuals dealing with hearing loss
  • Plus more based on the resident'sassessments and care plans

Our care team knows the value and importance of the right environment matched with the best therapeutic options for residents, whether they are here for short- or long-term care. We make every effort to tailor care to residents' needs and to support them while they are members of the Avera Brady family.

End of Life Comfort Suite

  • Bed for the loved one.
  • Area for family and friends.

In September 2008, our staff wanted to provide a more private, comfortable space for residents and families experiencing the end of life.

The Avera Queen of Peace Foundation, Social Services, Plant Operations, Nursing and many others collaborated to renovate an apartment to provide a comfortable space for end of life care.

The Comfort Suite consists of:

  • A private room for the resident
  • A separate room for family members
  • A kitchenette
  • A private bathroom

Many have expressed their gratitude to the staff who made this possible.
