After more than 55 years of providing quality care and enriching the lives of older adults in the Birmingham area, Fair Haven is nearly ready to unveil their newly built short-term rehabilitation center.
The rehabilitation center will feature a new model of care, the Household Model. Fair Haven and its sister community in Dothan are the first retirement communities to bring this revolutionary new model of care to Alabama. Instead of a clinical or hospital setting, a home-like setting is created for guests as they are healing in the new rehab center.
Guests will have their own private suite with private bathroom, and will share household spaces and amenities such as a modern kitchen, a comfortable den, a lavish living room, a bright sunroom, and family-style dining. A new therapy gym is located inside the rehab center for guests’ convenience.
The most notable aspect of the Household Model is the emphasis on each guest’s freedom to make choices regarding their own schedules, care and activities. With all the comforts of a real home, the camaraderie of other guests, and the support of knowledgeable staff 24 hours a day, Fair Haven’s rehabilitation center will help foster productive healing.
The new rehab center is part of a larger renovation project for the established community. Other updates to the campus include a new skilled nursing Household building, a new assisted living building, new independent living apartment homes, and a new specialty care assisted living rooms. While the new short-term stay rehabilitation center is set to open next month, other updates to the campus will reach completion by August of 2017.
Echoing through the newly renovated campus is Fair Haven’s proud commitment to providing faith-based, person-centered care in a welcoming and compassionate environment.
