If you have a planned surgery in your future or are recovering from injury or illness, schedule your short-term, rehabilitative therapy with Columbus Colony for Elderly Care. We offer physical, occupational and speech therapies as well as nutritious meals and excellent medical, nursing and therapeutic care to promote a comfortable and speedy recovery in one of our private and newly remodeled Fast Track Rehab recovery suites featuring their own bathroom and a communal shower. In most cases, short-term rehab stays range from 14-21 days, depending on your individual needs

Columbus Colony for Elderly Care (CCEC) is a resource for patients seeking short-term rehab, long-term care and outpatient therapy. Additionally, our 150-bed community has a special focus for individuals who are deaf, deaf and blind, or hard of hearing equipped with interpreters on-site.

Q. Does CCEC’s Medical Director sign or use an interpreter to communicate?

A: Our medical director does not sign but does receive assistance from an interpreter when communicating with residents.

Q. What are the alternate methods of communication if an interpreter is not available?

A: Alternate methods consist of using a communication board and/or white board or Video Relay Service, a form of Telecommunications Relay Service that enables persons with hearing disabilities who use American Sign Language to communicate with voice telephone users through video and the help of a communications assistant 

Q. Do all staff know American Sign Language?

A: All our staff members do not sign; however, we do have a number of deaf staff members and other staff who are fluent in ASL. In addition, our we offer quarterly ASL classes to employees at CCEC, so our staff are trained in American Sign Language and understanding of deaf culture

We appreciate everything the staff did to help make my mother’s transition smooth. We spoke with her last night via video call, and you can just tell she is in a better place physically and mentally (especially after the ice cream party night!). Thank you.

This is the best place to live. I feel safe here, and the nurses are so good. I really like it here.

I’m 3000% better than when I arrived and I attribute this improvement to the therapy department. They changed my life! The food is great here—comparable to any good restaurant, and I’m gaining weight. I also like the people I’ve met here.
