A safe and comfortable care environment
CentraState’s ACE unit offers a home-like care setting. All of the unit’s 42 patient rooms have special features to promote the highest levels of patient safety and comfort.
For example, oversized white boards are updated with the current date every day and bedside clocks are prominently placed to help maintain patients’ sense of orientation. The beds are positioned lower to the floor, and all the rooms have floor lighting to reduce the risk of falls. Patients have easy access to walkers and other mobility devices to help them get around easier. We encourage all patients to get out of bed to eat their meals and to keep as active as possible to maintain their strength and independence.
One of my favorite features in the unit is the lounge, which is a place for patients and families to visit with each other, or to chat with other patients and families. Group activities are also organized to facilitate social interaction with others. This is an important aspect of the care we provide because being in the company of others can improve one’s mood, and having a positive outlook can help the body heal and recover faster from an illness or injury.
