Interdisciplinary Approach

Interdisciplinary Approach

Our team approach brings the physician, therapists, nurses, certified nurse assistants, dieticians, social workers, and therapeutic recreation personnel together to evaluate our residents and create an individual plan of care that incorporates our resident’s goals. With the resident’s permission, family input is welcomed.

Short-Term Rehab

Short-Term Rehab

Very often, rehabilitation therapies and a little extra care are needed after being in the hospital for an illness or surgery. Our Short Stay wing is ideal for those who are not quite ready to return home after a hospital stay. Our goal is to get you back home as soon as possible. Ask your hospital discharge planner to contact Sarah Reed for your Short-Term stay.

Long-Term Care

Long-Term Care

Sometimes being in one’s home is no longer an option. Our dedicated and caring staff provides the highest level of care. Residents are periodically evaluated for changes in physical and cognitive functioning. For our terminally ill residents, we offer compassionate end of life care, or we welcome your choice of Hospice provider.

The therapy I received for my knee replacement surgery was great! I stayed in the Skilled Nursing Facility and everything was just great. Having a private room was so important to me.

Never did I think I could like living in a nursing home but I really do! After a heart attack and broken hip, I can no longer live alone. The staff here is so helpful, and my room is very comfortable! I especially enjoyed the physical therapy I received.

When we walked in and saw the bright, spacious apartment we knew this was the place for us! We love the view from our apartment. Everyone here was so welcoming and made us feel right at home!
