Robinson Terrace Skilled Nursing Facility is licensed as a residential health care facility by the New York State Department of Health and has a nursing home capacity of 120 beds. The facility is separated into three different units, Courtyard, Mountainview and Bathgate, and each unit offers clean and comfortable semi-private and private rooms. All of the rooms have private bathrooms and many offer exceptional views of the gardens, patios and the Catskill Mountains.
Members of the community who are seeking short-term placement for rehab services following a fracture, surgery, etc. and are not able to be cared for at home until they are stronger or more independent.
Providing care for loved ones in the community can be extremely demanding and difficult at times. Respite care is designed to give families temporary relief of care-giving responsibilities. Our professionally trained staff can care for your loved one at our facility for the time frame you need, whether it is for a couple of days or a few weeks.
Comfort care/Palliative care
It is the facility philosophy to empower the resident to live each day, as they desire in the last phase of their life. We will respect the medical, physical, cultural, psychosocial, and spiritual wishes of each resident on the program. Our program is designated for those residents with incurable, progressive illness where life expectancy is less than a year. Our goal is to provide comprehensive end of life management by abiding by the residents wishes regarding care and treatment, ensuring pain and other distressful symptoms are controlled in order to prevent acute crisis, to avoid undue burdening of the family members, to avoid prolongation of the dying process as death becomes imminent, to strengthen the relationship with loved ones through individual and /or family counseling, to offer spiritual and social counseling as needed I requested, and to help the resident achieve a sense of control during the last phase of their life. The Robinson Terrace Palliative Care Program is included in the daily rate paid to the facility.
We have a contract with Catskill Area Hospice for provision of hospice and palliative care services. Hospice care focuses on improving the quality of life for residents diagnosed with a life-limiting disease. The Hospice program is paid for by Medicare and is available if the patient is certified as appropriate by the physician. The program provides individualized services, designed to be provided by the Hospice staff in conjunction with the nursing home staff.
