Rehab and Therapy
Life-altering events like surgery, accidents, broken bones, stroke, and other health issues often require rehabilitation before heading home. It may also require ongoing rehabilitation once you’ve returned home. We provide both short-term or long-term therapy options in an in- or out-patient setting.
Our partnership with Aspen Rehab allows our therapists to focus on energizing and invigorating our rehab clients with therapy designed to reclaim movement and functionality. Lebanon provides speech, physical, and occupational therapies.

What is Wound Care?
What is the Wound care program?
The wound program would be more of a preventive program to start. Reviewing new admissions/ being proactive with current residents in identifying nutrition and surface selection for the residents. Weekly rounds and communication between the facility and the wound provider. Weekly and monthly outcome tracking.
Why is it a good program?
Our wound program is good because we focus on being proactive with new and current residents to help reduce the chances of new wounds to develop. When wound care is needed the physicians look at the entire care of the residents and address them holistically with the IDT.
What are the benefits of the program?
Staff and resident education by the provider. A 7-day provider is available to assist with complex wounds on admission / skin sweeps. Advance skin substitutes for wound healing.

Transitional Care for Young Adults
Embassy of Lebanon is committed to creating a higher standard and next level quality of life for our young adults. Afterall, life does not slow down due to circumstances, it only gets faster!
What sets Embassy of Lebanon apart?
Hear what our residents are saying:
Our 21-year-old daughter Grace A. has been on a ventilator since an infant and she has a rare form of muscular dystrophy. Grace is a straight a student, an artist and she’s planning on working in the graphic design industry. We realized nurse home placement of some was needed for Grace, when she turns 22 and it has been a chaotic and challenging journey. Looking for living arrangements for Grace as a young adult on a ventilator is extremely difficult and heartbreaking.
Grace has paved the road for many that have followed her in the terms of living at home, education, and she’s also now paving the way for herself trying to find a suitable living arrangement that will allow her to live and not just sustain herself physically; I believe we’ve found that in the Embassy of Lebanon.
While we were touring, we visited half a dozen facilities, and were concerned that they were lacking in regard to staff and competency. When we walked into the Embassy of Lebanon, the first thing we noticed was the vibrant and knowledgeable staff, a very clean environment and respiratory team 24 hours a day. Wow, we were amazed! But it was even better than that because the goal of the Embassy of Lebanon is not just to take care of the physical needs of the young ventilator client, but the psychosocial needs that allow them to live a fulfilling and prosperous life. Grace recently has had five respite stays and planning on a permanent residence in the very near future and we’re looking forward to the opportunities that the facility has to empower Grace and provide a life worth living. This has been one of the most difficult decisions our family has been through, and I can’t be happier with the heartfelt assistance The Embassy of Lebanon has provided.
