Nursing homes are licensed by the state and offer furnished rooms and health services to residents who require consistent and ongoing medical care with physician oversight but do not require hospitalization. This is called skilled nursing care. Our communities provide skilled nursing care, which includes post-acute care, short-term rehabilitation, complex medical care and long-term care. Oversight is provided by licensed professional nurses, nurse practitioners, and physicians. A comprehensive therapy department is staffed by physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech language pathologists. Nursing homes are designed to meet the individual needs of the residents.
Loomis Lakeside at Reeds Landing and Loomis House offer licensed, skilled nursing care in a cozy and supportive environment. Both our nursing centers are Medicare and Medicaid-certified and provide short-term rehabilitation and long-term care in well-appointed private or semi-private rooms.
