24-hour Care

Our Nursing Facility is designed for residents who require 24-hour care and supervision by nursing staff. Our facility is licensed by the State of Iowa and is certified to accept Medicaid and Medicare. Resident care is available on either a short or long term basis. We have accommodations for 61 residents; 19 of these beds are in our Memory Care Unit.





  Intermediate Care

This level of care is available for residents who require assistance with various daily living skills. Residents may receive help with bathing, dressing, toileting, mobility, and/or feeding. The nursing staff administers all medications and communicates with physicians on the resident’s behalf.

 Skilled Care

This level of care includes rehabilitative care such as physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy. Generally this type of care is for those who have had a stroke or fractures, and individuals who need strength training following an acute illness. Residents requiring new tube feeding, diabetic care, and some IV treatments are also accepted. Often times this level of care is obtained for a short time and the resident may return safely and comfortably back to his or her home.



 Hospice Care

This level of care is for those residents who are living with a terminal illness. We are able to keep the individual as pain free and comfortable as possible in a warm and compassionate setting.

The nursing facility features a Memory Care Unit for those afflicted with Alzheimer/Dementia type illnesses. The Memory Care Unit provides a safe, caring, supportive, and low stimulus environment to appropriately meet the needs of each resident. The staff is specially trained and is continually working to help the residents feel good about themselves. Dementia care is one of the most valued areas of human care, but requires very high levels of ability, creativity and insight- recognizing the unique way in which each person deals with his or her world- all characteristics of the specialized staff serving our residents in the Memory Care Unit. In addition to nursing services, residents enjoy a full range of services such as nutritious, made from scratch meals, housekeeping, laundry, a broad range of activities, barber and beauty salon services, and social services including pastoral care.
