Welcome Skyline Transitional Care!

We are excited to welcome Skyline Transitional Care to our network of affiliated facilities!  Skyline is a charming 80 bed skilled nursing and post-acute rehabilitation facility with a ton of potential.  Our therapy leader, Kristin Ryther, is a transfer from one of our Texas affiliates, and has been part of our organization for two years.  She has always been a natural leader in all aspects of her life and when she had the opportunity to become a therapy program manager, she jumped at the chance to be a multiplier and rise by lifting others.  As a leader in our organization, Kristin has been able to facilitate many dreams for both patients and her team members.  She is a fierce believer in CAPLICO and building facility level culture as well as encouraging her team to build something great in their own community.

For Kristin, Idaho is home.  Boise specifically, is a beautiful location and offers hiking, skiing, and a growing local cultural scene.  It is a scenic and friendly place to raise a family and offers a relatively reasonable cost of living.  When not working, Kristin loves to spend her time doing Pilates and other work outs, as well as hiking and otherwise enjoying the outdoors.  Her favorite dining experience in Boise is Bardenay, hands down – it was the one place that she would always go to when visiting the area after moving to Texas.  

Kristin is inspired to build the program at Skyline from the ground up. As a new acquisition, it is a clean slate and the team will be able to create and define the treatment approaches, specialized programs, community outreach and culture that fits the facility team and needs of the residents in the best possible way.

Join The “Island Life” With Bainbridge Island

History of Pickleball: Created in 1965 in the backyard of Joel Pritchard with a friend (Bill), the goal to have an activity the whole family could participate in. They created it on an old badminton court and since they didn’t have badminton rackets, they used ping pong paddles. Over the weekend they created rules and lowered the net from 60” to 36”, since the plastic ball they were using bounced so well on the court. Now it’s one of the fastest growing sports in the US! This took place at Joel Pritchard’s home on Bainbridge Island, WA just a ferry ride away from Seattle. This ingenuity and drive for living an active lifestyle is still a driving force on Bainbridge Island and especially at Bainbridge Island Health and Rehabilitation Center. They have a team of therapists and nurses that are here to help you get back to life! They enjoy the “Island Life” in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, home of amazing outdoor activities and weekend getaways (including Pickleball at the Founder’s Court). We are looking for therapists to join this awesome team. Come see us at the facility and then take an afternoon to play some pickleball!

Northern Oaks Makes An Impact!

Meet Clair and Lura Stoakes, Clair is 101 and his wife, Lura is 96. They celebrated their 80th Wedding Anniversary back in August. This amazing couple has been with Northern Oaks for over 2 year and we try to honor their anniversary in a special way each year.

When Clair and Lura were dating, Clair drove a Model-A car that he would shine up for his dates with Lura. Being in a small town, we knew someone with a Model-T and we reached out to see if he would be willing to give the couple a ride for their anniversary. His was only a 2 seater, but he called a former NE senator from Lincoln 2 hours away who has a “touring Model-T”. Our local Ford dealership then got involved and arranged to have that vehicle trailered here for Clair and Lura to take a tour around town.

While Lura is quite mobile, Clair requires a little more assistance. After measuring thresholds, we found out the step to get into the vehicle was 29’’ with a running board at 19’’ off the ground. For weeks prior to the Anniversary, our therapy team worked with Clair to be able to manage a 10’’ step all while keeping the secret of their Anniversary surprise, at times he thought we were crazy.

When the day came, Clair was able to manage the steps to get into the Model-T and take a drive with his sweetheart while driving off to their song “Too Young” by Natalie Cole.  There were 3 news stations and our local town paper that showed up for the event to interview our amazing couple and watch them drive away .  The look on their face when Clair saw the car was priceless as happy tears were shed. 

The love and encouragement the team at Northern Oaks shows to their patients is unmatched. If you’re interested in learning more about how you can join this amazing team, you’re in luck! Northern Oaks is currently offering career opportunities for an Occupational Therapist Assistant, Occupational Therapist, and a Physical Therapist.

Why You Should Consider A Job At South Mountain!

Meet Aaron Fuller, our extraordinary therapy leader at South Mountain Post-Acute in sunny Phoenix, AZ! He literally fell into a therapy career when he fell off a ladder and broke his hand, consequently receiving occupational therapy services to get him back on track. He had already wanted to find a career where he could be of service to others so he enrolled in an Occupational Therapy Assistant program immediately – and hasn’t looked back. As a therapy leader with our organization since 2015, Aaron loves his interdisciplinary team at South Mountain. “My favorite thing about my team is that no matter what is going on or if we are in a disagreement about something, we can all trust one another to do the right thing and do it well,” Aaron explained.

South Mountain has maintained  a steady push to be better and provide great care for their residents and patients.  They are currently working on a B&B/urinary incontinence program (which has been life changing for patients and their families in our other locations), social and leisure participation programs, a growing outpatient program, fall prevention and a vent/trach unit.  In five years, the therapy team should have a thriving outpatient program as well as a project to expand the therapy gym space along with 26 beds dedicated to vent/trach patients. South Mountain recently won the Arizona Therapy Program of the year, with some big competition from our other area operations.

Aaron is a proponent of growing our own leaders and three of his therapists have gone through our DORITO (Director of Rehab in Training Opportunity). Two of them are now therapy leaders in other Phoenix area facilities.  The therapy team at South Mountain has won the facility Halloween costume contest the last two years running.  Last year the team dressed as rock stars in a group called Thera-Band – this team is witty!!  Plans are in the works for another successful Halloween take over!

Aaron is a Phoenix native and plans to stay. He enjoys all of the great restaurants and abundance of outdoor activities. Even when the weather gets hot in the valley, cooler weather is a short drive away. Aaron spends his non-working hours taking advantage of the great weather, hiking, gardening, practicing Latin, Latin dancing and Country dancing, and cooking!
