At Long Beach Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, we believe in the power and importance of socialization and recreational activities as part of our efforts to restore mental health and happiness. These programs are separate from our speech, physical, and occupational therapy activities.

This gives patients the confidence and support they need from peers. This provides our residents with the time and opportunity to grow friendships and give them a feeling of belonging and comfort.

This type of therapy helps to maintain proper nutrition so patients can keep up with necessary caloric and vitamin intake.
Wounds are typically cared for with proper dressing and medication to mitigate the risk of infection.
