Residential Care

Sumner Community Hospital's Residential Care unit is an excellent intermediate solution for patients unable or unsure about returning home following a long illness or surgery. Depending on availability, we can accommodate patients for a few days or as long as necessary to achieve a level of wellness that allows them to return to their regular lifestyle.

Our unit is also an option for permanent residency for a loved one requiring a high level of nursing care in the last years of life-or until alternate arrangements can be made at a nursing home or other long-term care facility.

Upon admission to the Residential Care Program, each new resident is assessed by a nurse to determine the level of care required and to create a pricing structure for that care. The unit offers 24-hour nursing services. No doctors orders are required for admission, but a physician is always on call as needed.

Residential Care rooms are located on the second floor of the hospital, near the Skilled Nursing Facility and nurses' station.

Available Services Include

Meals (modified therapeutic diets as prescribed)
Television set
Personal services as required for the health, safety, grooming and well being of the resident
Linens and bedding
Laundry services for hospital owned clothing items
Assistance and/or supervision with activities of daily living when required
