When you’re injured or you’ve gone through a serious illness or surgery and your physician recommends rehabilitation therapy to help you gain your strength back, Scottsdale Village Square’s Kiva center is here for you.
The Kiva center has recently been modernized and designed for short-term stays, usually from three to 90 days in duration. We offer a variety of therapies provided to you by a multi-disciplinary rehabilitation team. Your care with us will be personalized to fit your needs. Our team includes licensed registered nurses, certified nursing assistants and social workers as well as dieticians, physical, occupational and speech therapists.
No two patients require the same type or level of care. That’s why your rehabilitation plan will be designed to maximize recovery just for you.
This treatment focuses on your ability to move and function independently. Our physical therapy department can provide services six days a week.
Sometimes confused with physical therapy in that it also helps you function on a day-to-day basis. But occupational therapy (OT) focuses more on your ability to function within the realm of self-care and home safety (walking, bathing, eating, grooming, etc.).
This treatment is offered to patients who are experiencing a variety of speech or swallowing disorders. Speech therapy also can be used to improve cognition, memory and communication redevelopment (for stroke survivors, for example).
Individuals needing the following types of care come to the Kiva center for short-term stays.
- Recovery from a bone fracture (orthopedic recovery)
- Recovery from a heart attack (cardiac recovery)
- IV antibiotic therapy
- Wound care
- Pain management in conjunction with therapy as a secondary need
- Management of diabetes as a secondary need
The Kiva center also provides daily activities designed to engage your body, mind and spirit. As a Kiva patient, you’ll be able to enjoy the delicious meals provided by Scottsdale Village Square’s Chef Ernst Springhorn. You may choose to eat your meals in our restaurant-style dining room (in our community’s independent living area), or you may choose to eat here in the Kiva center dining room.
The Kiva center is a Medicare Certified and private pay community. Our rates are daily rates and Co-pays may vary based on your Insurance carrier. Please feel free to discuss your payment arrangements, just give us a call at (480) 946-6571.
