“The data clearly tracks with the nationwide effort to prioritize nursing home residents for vaccinations. Case counts began to steeply decline as the Pfizer, and then the Moderna vaccines began to be distributed to nursing homes across the country on December 20, 2020. Nursing home case counts remain low, particularly when compared to infection rates among the general population, which have roared back in recent weeks,” -–McKnight’s Long Term Care News
“Today, new cases in American nursing homes are at their lowest point since May, when the federal government began tracking such data, the New York Times reports. Nursing homes are now among the safest places to be.”

CARE – COMPASSION – COMFORT
Welcome to Pocahontas Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center in the heart of Pocahontas, Arkansas. Whether you are looking for short-term rehabilitation or long-term care, you have come to the right place. Our highly skilled healthcare professionals – coupled with sophisticated therapies and high-tech treatments – deliver world-class care that is patient-centered and dedicated to achieving the best possible outcomes.
We recognize the importance of performing our jobs with compassion. Our elders often come to us during difficult and challenging times in their lives and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. In fact, they become part of the family.
Finally, we provide comfort – physically, emotionally and spiritually – in a home-like setting for an enriched experience that improves the overall quality of life and promotes optimal healing.
Individually trained restorative aides continue various therapies once the licensed therapist has completed care for the elder. Through restorative care, our staff assists elders in maintaining and improving his or her total welfare as well as reaching and maintaining his or her highest level of functioning independence.
I always like my nurses and I always have good care.
One of my favorite experiences was witnessing a resident rely on God. He has had a bumpy past and isn’t proud of some things he has done. He has made a complete 360 turn since being here. He is very scared about an upcoming event and I witnessed one of our nurses praying with him. The difference I saw in him after they prayed is truly amazing. These residents are our family!
Here at Pocahontas we have a resident whose family members are always bringing us goodies. Not only does it always taste great, it is nice to know that they love and trust us to care for their loved one like our own. It is more of a family gathering than “you just take care of Mom”. This makes me very happy.
I am the restorative aide at Pocahontas. When I am able to get someone to walk, that has not walked in a very long time, it is such a good feeling. Especially when a family member lets you know how much they appreciate what you do. When those family members keep you informed of what is going on in their lives it makes you fee like you are part of their family and that you had a big part in that resident’s recovery.
