The Skilled Nursing level of care as defined by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services is for patients/residents that have had an acute episode that requires medical management from nursing and/or rehabilitation services. These individuals may have the potential of returning to the community or to a more independent living environment.

Memory Care Unit
The mission of the Countryside Health Care Memory Care Unit is to provide a purposeful, compassionate, dignified and safe environment for our residents, as well as peace of mind for their families.

Our new 28-bed addition will continue this tradition, providing excellent nursing care with a therapeutic, person-centered focus for our memory care residents.

Admission Criteria —
- Any person seeking admission to the Memory Care Unit must carry a diagosis of Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia documented by a physician.

The Memory Care Management Team will give consideration to the physical, psychosocial, and emotional aspects of each individual and the positive potential of the program for each applicant.
- The family or previous caregiver will be made aware of the Habilitation Modality used by Countrysdie Health Care in order to be made aware of the philosophy of the Memory Care Unit and the potential benefit to the applicant.
- Resident selection for the Memory Care Unit will be based on the Team’s commitment to the Habilitation Modality. Our belief is that this Unit must be therapeutic for each resident’s needs individually, as well as for the needs of the Memory Care Unit as a whole.
