The Guardian House, a Skilled Nursing facility, represents the very best in Skilled Nursing and Specialized Memory Care. Our state-of-the-art "home like” residence and therapeutic activity program was designed by two award winning, nationally recognized Gerontologists.
As a true "continuum of care” facility, we have three separate, secure units with multiple levels of Skilled Nursing and Memory Care. Each unit offers a variety of living accommodations that include deluxe, private, or semi-private suites.
Room Accommodations for Skilled Nursing Residents:
Our designated Skilled Nursing Unit is comprised of nine private suites and one semi-private suite.
- Suites are furnished with Specialty Electronic Hospital Beds, armoire, bedside table, and upholstered chair
- Suites have cable service for personal TV use
- Facility is equipped with a Wireless call system – resident pendants can be worn and used throughout the facility to alert staff that the resident needs assistance
Room Accommodations for Private Pay Residents:

Rehabilitation and Restorative Nursing:
Our facility provides rehabilitation services to all of our residents needing physical, occupational, and/or speech therapy. Per Physician order, residents can receive therapy up to 5 days per week. If applicable, residents can receive multiple sessions per day by a combination of therapy disciplines. Skilled Nursing stays and/or outpatient therapy services are billed directly to Medicare and supplemental insurance carriers by The Guardian House. When the resident has reached their maximum rehab potential and is discharged from therapy, a restorative exercise program is initiated by nursing in efforts to maintain the resident’s maximum level of functioning.
Therapeutic Activity Programing:
As a "Social Model of Care”, we know that happy residents are healthy residents. We encourage our residents to participate in a variety of scheduled activities throughout each day. Our therapeutic activity program begins at 9:00 am and ends at 7:00 pm. Our Activity Director, along with two activity assistants, conduct one-on-one and group activities with our residents that are enjoyable and designed to stimulate their mind and body. By partnering with local volunteers, we are able to keep our residents connected with their community and local heritage.
