NEW YORK, June 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Bronx rehabilitation facility Gold Crest Care Center was once again named one of the top nursing homes in New York by U.S. News and World Report. This award reflects a center's ability to not only care for seniors, but to create an inviting and homelike environment that provides for more than just medical needs. The homes at the top of the list excel at providing not only medical care, but addressing the social, recreational and emotional needs of residents as well.

Gold Crest Care Center offers 24-hour treatment and care in an innovative 175-bed facility that is designed to help patients rebound after an illness or injury. Speed is crucial for recovery. "The faster an elderly person gets back on his feet and resumes his regular activities, the better it is for his or her overall health," says center director Mark Salamon.
This intensive and innovative approach to the problem of short-term rehabilitation after an injury, surgery or illness offers many benefits for elderly patients and their caregivers. Services and a level of care can be offered in-house at Gold Crest's live-in Bronx facility that simply can't be offered or matched in the home setting.
Around the clock availability of medical staff and equipment in the Gold Crest facility ensures that patients can always get the help they need. Elderly parents are often aware of the stress their needs can cause and refuse to accept help in a home setting. In the Bronx rehabilitation center setting, caring medical and support staff is on hand any time during the day or night to assist patients. The willingness on the part of patients to accept professional help in this medical setting and the availability of skilled caregivers helps eliminate the accidents and injuries that can occur in the home setting.
Adult children coping with caring for an elderly parent may be faced with expensive renovations to make short term care possible at home. From steep staircases or steps without railings to common bathroom hazards, the typical home is simply not set up for injury rehabilitation, even if expert home care is available. Choosing the ADA compliant setting and home-like environment of Gold Crest's Bronx rehabilitation facility allows family members to ensure the safety of their loved ones without taking drastic steps at home.
Gold Crest's Bronx rehabilitation center is also known for its comfortable and well-equipped settings, offering recovering seniors plenty of options for recreation and social interaction in a safe and soothing environment. This focus on a home life environment helped lead to this year's recognition as one of New York's best facilities for seniors.
Private rooms feature comfortable climate controls, with air conditioning and private flat screen televisions, while common rooms offer the opportunity to interact with others in a congenial setting. On site physical therapy makes it easy for seniors to get the services they need and many residents enjoy a dip in the whirlpool after a PT session. Onsite services also include beauty and barber services, an in-house pharmacy and other conveniences designed to ensure that all needs are met and that residents can focus on their rehabilitation and recovery plan.
