    Highlights
    We are located in a lovely rural community and provide exceptional medical and rehab care. Many of our residents are here short term and return home to an independent life style. We have an extensive activities program; each resident is interviewed to establish areas of interest. Our activities range from weekly entertainment to daily exercise and many more exciting opportunities. Our dietary department is extremely accommodating and strives to provide a wide variety of delicious meals. Families are always welcome to dine with their loved ones. We specialize in medical management, rehabilitation including occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy. We are skilled in dementia care with a special activity program designed for the needs of that population. We work closely with our families and residents to communicate and plan appropriately for their care.
    All genders welcome
