    Our Nursing Home is a small facility that is very homelike and we focus our care on the individual's needs. We have a large open Activities / Media room, with separate Dinning Room, and private or semi-private rooms. Each room has a private bathroom. The rooms are large and open with tiled or carpeted floors. All rooms have large windows that over look the beautiful countryside. The halls are large, open, and bright. The nursing home is decorated in a very warm, homelike decor to make the facility less of an institution and more of a home. Our Assisted Living features a large dining room, media / living room, separate laundry room, and 12 apartments that are all licensed for 2 tenants. We feature two different sizes of apartments that give tenants the option of how much space they need with both apartments being quite spacious with plenty of storage space. They each have a separate bedroom, living, kitchen, and bath that is handicap accesible. Apartments include refridgerator, stove, microwave, blinds, air conditioning, and heat. Meals are served family style three times a day. The food is home cooked and delicious. We have a great activities department that provides a variety of activities to suit everyone's preferences. We get several compliments from visitors, residents, and families that our facility doesn't have a bad odor and is quite pleasent to be in. Both facilities have large patios for the residents to sit outside and enjoy the weather and outdoors. We encourage anyone that is interested to please stop in for a tour.
    All genders welcome
