Welcome to the lifestyle of your design
You are the voice we value most, and as such, our resident council contributes to the discussion of nursing facility matters and issues, in addition to adding input into organizing outings, parties and special holiday events.

Dining options include plentiful and nutritious options available buffet-style or delivered in-room. Dietary needs are always considered and tailored to suit residents’ particular medical requirements. For a small fee, family and friends can join us for a meal or special holiday celebration.

It’s not home without a piece of you. Personal items are encouraged for that individual touch that brings both comfort and familiarity.

Telephones may be brought from home for all other residents, with no charge for service. Free cable television is available in all rooms.

We know that companionship is key. Loved ones are invited to visit any of our spacious common areas, including the year-round solarium, outdoor courtyards, and lounge.

Experienced staff you can trust

It is easy to become overwhelmed when considering the critical factors of nursing care. We use smart strategies to assist residents as they cope with their medical needs and limitations, as well as adjust to their new environment for long-term care. We are motivators for maintaining an active lifestyle and promoting positive self-image.

Whether it’s a short visit for post-operative surgery therapy and recovery or a permanent stay, our guests receive expert assistance managing medical conditions and chronic disease with the guidance of fully-trained, licensed staff under the leadership of an experienced administration.

Due to the convenient attachment to a full-service hospital, our team has immediate access to laboratory and radiology departments, a pharmacy, medication management services and additional medical support in case of emergency. Dental and podiatry services are available, while optometry and mental health services can be arranged.

When your needs change down the road, we change with you. Our team caters to mobility challenges, and assistance is at every turn. A nurse call system connects all rooms and bathrooms to helpful staffers 24 hours/day. The security system features an alarm at each exit.

Our facility is certified by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to participate in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. We’re a proud member of the American Health Care Association and the North Carolina Health Care Facilities Association.
