This mini-convenience store meets your needs, with the added benefit that all items are donated by fraternal organizations throughout the state and are completely free to residents.
Skilled Nursing Facility
TMRC is committed to providing for residents for their entire life. Sometimes, more complex services are needed with advancing age. When independent living becomes a challenge, TMRC provides a sparkling clean skilled nursing facility staffed with specially trained nurses and other health care professionals. Assistance with bathing, dressing, hair styling, laundry service, or any other personal needs is provided. This 24 hour a day, seven days a week service eliminates the need for a move to an entirely different community. However, TMRC does not provide a secured or Alzheimer unit.
Quarterly meetings with families and residents keep the communication lines open.
Activities in the skilled nursing area are planned especially for these residents—fun and laughter are so important to overall quality of life. These folks get up and go, with frequent offsite and onsite events.
