Our new Alderwood Health & Rehab provides 5-Star skilled nursing and transitional care to central Ohio seniors.
Under the supervision of Health Services Administrator Jessica Rieker, LNHA, 115 team members provide outstanding rehabilitation, recuperative, respite and long-term care for our residents and visiting patients.
Jessica joined our team in July 2013 as the Health Services Administrator responsible for the Health Center (now Alderwood Health & Rehab) and Assisted Living. She holds a Master’s in Business Administration degree from the University of Toledo.
As the Licensed Nursing Home Administrator, she plans, develops, maintains and monitors standards of care and oversees service provision.
She works with an interdisciplinary team including physicians, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists and other care-givers to provide outstanding person-centered care.
Aging in Place through our Full Continuum of Care
As a LifeCare community, Friendship Village of Dublin offers a full continuum of living and care options on our scenic, 29-acre campus.
From independent living through assisted living, skilled nursing, and rehabilitation, residents enjoy the care they need when they need it.
“Our ultimate goal is to help residents age in place,” Jessica said. “If residents require a higher level of care, Alderwood offers an easy onsite transition, with comprehensive services provided by familiar faces right on campus.”
After a short-term stay at Alderwood, residents often return to their independent living apartments. If they continue to need a higher level of care, they can transition to Waterford Place Assisted Living or long-term care at Alderwood.
5-Star Skilled Nursing and Transitional Care
Alderwood ranks among the top skilled nursing and rehabilitative care centers in Ohio.
This state-of-the-art center provides rehabilitative care to help patients recover from an acute injury, surgery or illness. It also offers long-term care to those who require a high level of ongoing medical services.
- A perfect 5-star rating from the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services
- High rankings from the Ohio Department of Aging
- Better-than-average ratings from U.S. News & World Report Best Nursing Homes
This advanced skilled nursing and transitional care center offers:
- Over 3,000 square feet of rehabilitative space
- Attractive communal gathering and dining spaces
- Sophisticated technology to track and trend resident needs in real time
“To prevent the spread of communicable disease, the renovation completed in June 2021 placed a large focus on air quality and sanitation, with installation of a bipolar ionization air filtration system throughout the three-story building,” Jessica said.
Luxe Accommodations Promote Healing
Designed for comfort, healing and hospitality, 36 private and seven semi-private rooms at Alderwood feature:
- Designer touches and high-end finishes
- Expansive windows and natural lighting
- In-room kitchenettes
- Comfortable seating areas
- Spacious private baths
- Built-in lockable storage areas
With private or semi-private suites averaging over 400 square feet, Alderwood offers significantly more room space than most other skilled nursing facilities for residents to thrive in.
“These large private spaces provide safe separation from others, especially during activities such as bathing, eating and resting when masks cannot be worn,” Jessica said.
Working with Central Ohio Primary Care Physicians
Through a partnership with Central Ohio Primary Care, Friendship Village of Dublin has the only onsite senior medical practice in central Ohio. The Alderwood team coordinates closely with COPC physicians and offsite COPC medical support professionals.
“Over the past three years, we have created a unique onsite model of care that provides better physician access and continuity of care to our residents,” Jessica said.
COPC physicians provide 40 hours each week of onsite service coverage through our campus clinic and the Alderwood physician office location. This includes 16 hours of additional certified nurse practitioner services that prioritize acute care needs within the Alderwood community.
Team Approach Delivers 5-Star Care
The 115 Alderwood associates work as a team to help residents and patients recover.
“I love, respect and adore the relationships felt from the front door in at Friendship Village of Dublin,” Jessica said. “I have been with the organization for almost 9 years, but have felt a deep sense of community from day one. Everyone works together to help our residents live their best lives.”
“It is really the entire team that creates the excellent care and services that our residents receive,” she added. “The team strives to identify how to best support each individual, regardless of the goal of the stay.”
“In a healthcare setting like ours, nothing great is achieved by just one person alone,” she concluded. “It truly takes a village.”
