A Transitional Care Unit?

Our Long-Term care facility provides care and comfort for individuals at the end of their life and assist with their Hospice care. We also sometimes refer to the care we provide as transitional care because our residents usually stay with us for a while on their way somewhere else: returning home, entering an assisted living facility, or receiving additional acute care.

Our Services

Our services are provided in a home-like atmosphere. The rooms are bright, many with garden views and offer the amenities of home. The best part of our program is that we have all of the services you’d expect from a skilled nursing unit with the full medical resources of the hospital available to our residents as needed. We routinely provide the following services: skilled nursing care, rehabilitation therapies, nutrition services, respiratory therapy, spiritual care, social services and activities.
