Wesley Homes values its long-standing relationship with local physicians, discharge planners and community health professionals. These referrals exemplify the reputation Wesley Homes has earned over its many years of operation. It is Wesley Homes’ caring and reliable staff members that earn that reputation again each day.
Wesley Homes Health Center is located on the Wesley Homes campus in Des Moines, Washington and certified under Medicare and Medicaid. There are three areas of care provided: long-term skilled nursing care, short-term rehabilitative care and Garden Court, a secure wing offering specialized care for those with advanced dementia. For those recovering from a health event, we work with your physician to make sure your post hospital care helps you return home quickly and stay home safely.
Licensed nursing care providers, such as RNs, LPNs and Nursing Assistants, provide quality care under the supervision of the resident’s physician. Each resident is treated with dignity and respect in a clean, pleasant environment where family and friends are welcome anytime. Our non-smoking skilled nursing and rehabilitation care center offers large, semi-private rooms with private baths, as well as some private rooms. Admission to Wesley Homes Health Center is on a space available, non-discriminatory basis.

Our resident-centered Rehabilitation Department provides physical therapy, occupational, speech, and specialty therapies. Therapists and specialists in Restorative Services are dedicated to helping residents regain their strength and return to their normal daily living activities following a disabling illness or surgery.
We provide 24-hour skilled nursing care and therapies in a comfortable and friendly environment. Our experienced rehabilitation team is committed to each patient’s quality of care. Patients are empowered through individualized programs to reach goals of increased independence and ability. Patient families are also encouraged to participate in therapy sessions, caregiver education and training.
Wesley Homes offers Virtual Rehab Therapy and Therapeutic Modalities. Omni Virtual Rehab Therapy is a system of exercise and activities that can make exercise more fun and interesting which helps to enhance the recovery process. When using virtual rehabilitation, a therapist will monitor a patient through special skilled therapy exercises and activities in a 3D computer generated “interactive” environment. Therapeutic Modalities are often used among aging adults as well as professional sports teams to manage pain, re-educate muscles and increase circulation for improved healing after an injury. These special programs are non-surgical, medication-free treatment options for a wide range of conditions such as pain, arthritis, a recent fall, recovery from a joint replacement, complications from a stroke and other common conditions and symptoms experienced by aging adults.
Our occupational therapists use task directed activities in the treatment of our patients whose functional abilities and independence with activities of daily living have been impaired by illness, injury or normal aging. Occupational therapy assists our patients in adapting to their social and physical environment by mastering tasks essential for daily living. Our occupational therapists may work with patients who have debilitating arthritic conditions or those with difficulty bathing, dressing and other activities of daily living. They assist our patients with impaired vision and/or hearing to function well in their environment.
Our speech therapists provide a continuum of services including assessment, education and treatment for language, voice, articulation and fluency disorders. Our treatment programs are directed towards improving communication skills and safe swallowing. We assist in rehabilitating patients who struggle with comprehension, memory, processing and expression abilities. We also instruct the patient of the caregiver in the techniques ranging from head positioning, to promoting safe swallowing at a slower rate, to clearer speech. We also teach patients how to compensate if they cannot be re-habilitated to their prior level of performance.
