Saunders Medical Center Care Center is licensed as a 60-bed long term care skilled nursing facility and offers a comprehensive range of long-term-care services. Each room has individually controlled heating and air conditioning, television outlet, and telephone jack for a private phone. We believe that residents with dementia and related disorders have a right to individualized care and support. Care must be planned using a multidisciplinary approach integrating medical, nursing, dietary, social work, therapeutic recreation, and family input. We provide 24-hour professional nursing services. Our registered dietitian is available to provide for nutritional needs for the residents as ordered by the physician. When ordered by a physician, we can offer physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy and respiratory therapy. Daily activities are provided to meet the recreational needs of the residents. Our social worker serves as an advocate for the residents, staff, and families, and is available for one-to-one family and resident consultation. Our residents may receive professional hair care service, may have cable television connected in their rooms, may set up personal accounts, and will be provided with opportunities to attend various religious services regularly in our chapel. Both private pay and Medicaid residents are accepted.
SMC provides around-the-clock nursing care provided by Registered Nurses (RN), Licensed Practical Nurses, Medication Aides and Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs).
