Life Care Center of Las Vegas adds On-Site Physician.

Las Vegas, NV, July 18, 2012 –(PR.com)–

Physician Onsite, Inc., recently placed Maria Gaerlan, M.D., as an on-site physician at Life Care Center of Las Vegas.

In her new position, Gaerlan will work with Life Care Center of Las Vegas’ interdisciplinary team and other attending physicians in caring for each patient.

Her presence in the nursing home will enhance physician accessibility to patients and their families. She will aid in hospital transitions and pharmacy communications, and being on-site will allow her to personally respond to medical changes or emergencies in a timely manner.

Before entering this new role, Gaerlan served as the facility’s medical rehabilitation director, as well as practicing at West Charleston Pain Center in Las Vegas. She has more than 20 years of medical experience, most of which she has served in the Las Vegas community.

“I know the needs of the facility and can provide better patient care and services now that I have more time for patient care,” said Gaerlan. “Adding more quality of life to our elderly residents’ remaining years and seeing a smile when they feel a sense of accomplishment brings a smile to my face too.”

Gaerlan earned her doctor of medicine degree from the University of Santo Tomas in Manila, the Philippines. She is board certified by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and is a licensed physician and surgeon in Nevada, California and the Philippines.

She resides in Las Vegas with her two daughters, Dominique and Jacqueline.

For more information about Physician Onsite, Inc., please contact Doug Veazey, director of field operations, at (423) 473-5028 or Doug_Veazey@lcca.com. Life Care Center of Las Vegas is located at 6151 Vegas Drive.

About Life Care

Your family is special with its deep bonds and unique relationships. Facing a dramatic change – such as moving a loved one into assisted living or a nursing home – is an unsettling prospect for most people. Life Care Centers have helped families for decades to work through the difficult decisions about how best to care for their loved ones. We understand how trying it is to choose nursing home care for your loved one, and how most struggling caretakers feel there is no other choice.

That’s why we’re here.

We want those special members of your family to become equally special members of ours. We want to relieve the anxiety and frustration you may be experiencing by providing a nursing home community of constant support, attention and personalized care. Above all, we want to serve each person entrusted to us with compassion, dignity, purpose and respect.

That’s not just our goal. It’s our privilege.

Services

At Life Care Centers of America, we take elderly care very seriously. That’s why we offer residents a wide range of living arrangements and amenities, services and care. From home assisted living to retirement living to nursing homes – and even campuses that offer all three in a continuum of care – Life Care has the experience, expertise, and dedication to provide a full scope of specialty services.

Whether your needs include Alzheimer’s care, in-home nursing care, rehabilitation or recovery help, or any of a number of other specialty services, Life Care will be there, with all the support, education, and commitment you and your loved one need.

Rehabilitation

Life can deliver some unexpected twists: accidents, sudden illnesses or emergency surgeries can happen when you least expect them. And in the aftermath of such events, your energy is focused primarily on recovery—trying to also find the best available resources for help can be pretty challenging.

At Life Care, we understand the intense desire to recuperate and get back to normal as quickly as possible. But serious illness or trauma can sometimes force you to relearn even basic functions. The struggle to regain those lost capabilities while still recovering is frustrating and often overwhelming.

That’s when our teams of experts can make an overwhelming difference. Our skilled therapy services can hasten your recovery, help return lost skills and bring back strength and mobility. Our caring professionals work tirelessly with our residents not only in physical areas, but also by constantly supporting and encouraging them emotionally.

We believe our residents are the extraordinary people who refuse to allow temporary setbacks or disabilities to affect them permanently. Their determination and effort become invaluable tools in the rehabilitation process.

And it is our greatest privilege to partner with them—or you, or your loved one—during recovery … and become your strongest advocates in the road to reclaiming total wellness.

Life Care Centers of America

The sun setting is no less beautiful that the sun rising.
