Skilled Nursing

Great River Care Center entrance

Our facility offers access to a wide range of services.  These services are available to individuals recovering from an illness or surgery, as well as those who have chosen to make this their home.  Some of the specialized services require a physician's order.  We can assist you with making arrangements for payment for these services, either through direct payment, Medicare/Medicaid or your personal insurance.

The facility also has two spacious sitting areas for family visits and socializing.

We offer a wide range of activities and recreational programs that promote physical and emotional well-being, as well as providing a sense of belonging.  Residents are encouraged to participate in activities.  We strive to create an environment allowing people the freedom to initiate activities of their choice.  Our programming includes both spontaneous and scheduled activities.

Regular activities include:

  • Award winning Fine Arts Program
  • Aroma Therapy
  • Music Therapy
  • Informal Fellowship
  • Religious Services
  • Group Physical Activities
  • Life Skills
  • Quiet Relaxation

Hospice/Terminal Care:

Hospice care provides comfort and supportive medical care to terminally ill residents and their families.  We work simultaneously with area hospice programs to supplement care and provide for a loving, sensitive and private environment for residents and their families.

Respite & Short-Term Care:

We offer respite care as a break for those who need temporary relief from the demands of providing care for a friend or family member.  Whether it is for a vacation, a weekend or even during inclement weather, we can take over for you when you need us.

Short-term care provides temporary healthcare for people recovering from an illness or surgery.  Our emphasis is to return individuals to their homes when they are able to do so.
