Timbers of Shorewood

Physicians agree that most patients recover sooner and remain more comfortable in the familiar surroundings of their home. The Timbers of Shorewood works with several excellent home health agencies and medical practices, all of which are Medicare certified.

Provena St. Joseph Medical Center Satellite Therapy Center

Residents of the Timbers of Shorewood can take advantage of this satellite location for physical, occupational, or speech therapy. The center is staffed with licensed therapists. They will bill Medicare or secondary insurances directly.

The Wellness Center

The Wellness Center is staffed by Registered Nurses and is available to assist Timbers’ residents with medical needs such as:

  • Blood pressure monitoring
  • Medication education
  • Acting as a liaison between residents and their physicians
  • Monitoring health conditions to help residents decide if an emergency room visit is necessary
  • Ordering medical equipment
  • Answering any medical questions or concerns residents may have

Physicians

The Timbers of Shorewood has created a network of hand-selected physicians to care for residents who don’t have their own doctor(s). Independent of the Timbers, these physicians have privileges at local hospitals to assure continuity of care. Residents are encouraged to utilize the skills of their own doctors, but the visiting physicians are available when needed. If a resident experiences a change of condition such as a cough, cold or onset of pain, the visiting physician is available for evaluation and treatment.

The following types of physicians hold regular office hours at the Timbers:

  • Geriatrician
  • Internist
  • Podiatrist
  • Optometrist
  • Pain Management Specialist
