Unlocking the Human Potential

Discover the Carolina Rivers Difference

Carolina Rivers Rehabilitation & Nursing Center is unlike any rehabilitative care facility in Onslow County. While we still offer comprehensive rehabilitative and long-term care, the layout of our campus and many of the facility’s key features provide a unique opportunity for patients and residents to rehabilitate in familiar settings. We aim to ease the transition for residents from rehabilitation to their return home with the dedication of our highly-skilled professional and the close-knit community that Carolina Rivers embodies.

Real-World Rehabilitation

Our goal is to prepare patients for return to their regular lives. We feel that this is best accomplished by bringing their regular lives to the facility. We’ve designed Carolina Rivers to imitate life outside the facility. We’ve included many key elements of home and normal life for many residents so they can adapt their rehabilitation and practice applicable skills necessary for their return home.

  • Standard Gym Equipment
  • A Full Practice Kitchen
  • A Mock-Up Coffee Shop
  • A Chapel with Pews

These environments are important for patients to gain the real-world experience they need to reenter their regular lives. It also creates better continuity of care from the hospital, through the rehabilitation process and to their final destination: Home.
