Our quiet, nurturing home-like environment is staffed with a diverse, kind and caring team that treats every resident like family. We believe in personal connections and knowing everyone on a first name basis.

Rehabilitation & Therapy Gym Features
Our design and construction team completed a major renovation of our 67,000 square ft, 217-bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation care center. We focused on updating all resident spaces and creating new Memory Care wing and therapy space. This centralized approach promotes an environment in which rehabilitation and nutrition are the center of daily activities and improves wayfinding ability by giving residents and central point of orientation.
The renovated therapy space features a glass enclosed therapy gym and an open air dining space that are located at the center of the building with the patient rooms being located on the outer perimeter. The redesigned Memory Care space features the latest in design best practices for Memory Care including programable lighting in the common areas that is designed to help regulate the Circadian Rhythm of residents and tactile artwork to engage their senses and stimulate cognitive functions.
Significant investments were also made in the new rehabilitation therapy gym to improve outcomes and expedite recovery including some of our state of the art therapy equipment listed here:

We provide each resident with a nourishing, tasteful, well-balanced diet that meets the daily nutritional and special dietary needs of each resident.
Customized meal plans to accommodate dietary requirement or restriction, including special diets to help manage conditions such as hypertension, heart disease, or diabetes.
State of the Art Safety
Safety is a Top Priority
We have multiple prevention methods for the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses. These include routine electrostatic cleaning, needlepoint bipolar ionization (cold plasma), HEPA air scrubbers, and MERV 13 air filter installation. Cold plasma has been shown to kill multiple bacteria, viruses and mold spores, and recent studies have demonstrated a significant reduction of COVID-19 virus when installed.
Partnering With Industry Experts
We developed and implemented industry-leading protocols to help prevent the spread of disease. We partnered with university and community-based epidemiology clinical experts, the North Carolina Statewide Program for Infection Control and Epidemiology (SPICE), while following state and CDC guidance.
Some of Our Additional Safety Measures Include:
Screening anyone who enters the facility – including our teammates prior to starting their shifts – at the door, including temperature checks
Residents are monitored and screened regularly
Teammates and guests are wearing masks throughout their shifts/visits
When residents have an engaging social life, they’re able to live more comfortably and productively. Activities give structure which provides them certainty in knowing what’s coming up next; time goes by faster and increases a sense of purpose. There’s also something comforting about having people around who care enough to make your days a little more interesting.
