Skilled Nursing in California
The Medicare-certified skilled nursing care team at Mercy Retirement & Care Center provides 24/7 professional, short-term rehabilitative stays and long-term skilled care in a comfortable, homelike setting. Our person-centered care approach values each resident as an individual, preserving their dignity and supporting their independence as much as possible.
Mercy’s Care Center stays up to date with best clinical practices and has sustained a 5-Star Quality Rating by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Its readmission rate is consistently well below the national and state averages.
Care Center services include:
- 24-hour licensed nursing
- Physical, occupational and speech therapy
- Long-term residential care for higher levels of medical services
- Post-surgical care, including IV therapy and pain management
- Specialized wound care
Outdoor courtyards provide a chance to enjoy nature in a secure environment. High ceilings and carpeted floors add to the Care Center’s comfortable feel. Weekly outings and volunteer programs give residents opportunities to socialize with each other and local community members.
The key difference between Mercy Care Center and other communities is our focus on person-centered care. Care team associates look to our residents to determine how they want to pace their day versus applying a medical structure.
This philosophy strives to change the culture of long-term care by approaching it as a collaborative partnership between caregivers and care receivers. Our staff identifies where they can engage residents in activities at their pace and at their level. This allows residents to receive the medical assistance they need plus the personal engagement and social interactions they want.
If you or a loved one is recovering from surgery, stroke or debilitating illness, a short-term stay at our Care Center can help get you back home as quickly as possible. Each room in our skilled nursing Care Center offers a beautiful view of a garden or patio to make the rehabilitation stay more pleasant. Our high-quality rehabilitation program includes physical, occupational and speech therapies, with protocols developed to meet your particular needs.
The long-term care program at Mercy Retirement & Care Center provides around-the-clock medical care and significant assistance with daily activities in a comforting, restorative environment. Services cater to a wide range of physical, emotional and social needs.
The team provides support, companionship and care in a manner similar to home rather than a medical setting. Residents have access to physical, speech and occupational therapists as well as nutritional services from registered dietitians.
