Residents who require ongoing skilled nursing care live in our Long Term Care households. The environment is welcoming and friendly. Floors are carpeted, and our monitoring and call systems are intentionally designed to avoid the beeping and other intrusive sounds that are common in hospitals and skilled care settings.
Long Term Care Households
In Long Term Care, each household consists of 13 spacious rooms grouped around a shared family-style kitchen, small dining room and living room that are similar to those found in a private home and allow the residents a high degree of flexibility to set their own schedules for sleeping and waking, meal times and other activities.
The majority of rooms are private, with private bathrooms and showers. Each household includes one double room – ideal for couples, or those who would like to share a room. Cable TV, Internet and phone are available options.
