Whether the stay is long or short, the Granite Falls Care Center staff works with residents and/or families to maintain a high quality of life. The new Granite Falls Care Center was completed and residents moved in on December 7th, 2015. The new Granite Falls Care Center features 32 private rooms and 8 semi-private rooms divided between 2 neighborhoods, 4 therapeutic whirlpool tubs along with showers built into each resident bathroom. There is a fenced-in courtyard area on each neighborhood, along with 1 unfenced area outside for residents and families to enjoy. Each neighborhood features 3 living room like areas with lounge furniture and a fireplace to relax by.
With 24 hour skilled nursing care to our residents, we work with residents to help them achieve and maintain their highest practical level of functioning and offer restorative rehabilitation services on site 5 days per week by the Therapy departments of the Granite Falls Hospital and Care Center. Another focus in the Care Center is our Resident Centered Care. This philosophy focuses on a “home-like” environment with consistent care providers and allows for “open” breakfast, served upon waking from 7:30am-9:00am each morning. Our staff strives to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Family members, friends and pet visits are welcome any time.
Making the transition into the nursing home easier for residents and families, the social services department serves as an advocate and a referral source for residents, families and staff members. The social worker also aids residents or family members in obtaining financial assistance, if necessary and is available Monday through Friday.
Entertainment programs, games, church services, music programs, exercise groups, and crafts are just some of the activities provided by the activities department. There is a strong focus on providing personalized activity programs to meet each resident’s leisure interests. We also offer a wide variety of community outings such as trips to the local casino, out to lunch, shopping, boating or just a drive around town. The “Red Hat Ladies” club meets monthly at the Manor. Don’t forget to check out our WhisperGlide Wheelchair Swing!
Volunteers play a big role in participating with the residents in many programs. Find out what we’re up to in the Care Center Newsletter.
