National Nursing Home Week

When you hear the words "nursing home" what thoughts come to mind? For most people, unpleasant thoughts are associated with those words. This is a large misconception based upon a lack of community education. With more rules and regulations centered on quality care, nursing homes are becoming a wonderful place to call home. Here at ManorCare Euclid Beach we would like to become your expert on Nursing and Rehab Facilities in the local community. 

Every year during the month of May, nursing homes across the country celebrate National Nursing Home Week in hopes of bringing a renewed awareness to today’s society. 

No longer are there stories of Long Term Care Institutions where our elderly go to wait out the end of life. Today’s Nursing and Rehabilitation facilities are places where both young and old go to rehabilitate after surgery as well as continue an active and social lifestyle.

Aside from being a proven leader in health care, providing outstanding rehabilitation services, and only the highest quality nursing care, ManorCare Euclid Beach's focus is on LIVING. Our residents participate in community service projects such as; The Annual Salvation Army Adopt-A-Veteran Program, growing vegetables at the Corsica Community Garden and raising money to help provide hats and mittens to needy children in our local community.

Not only do we volunteer, we also know how to have fun! It is not uncommon to find us at a Monster's Hockey game, taking a stroll at Euclid Beach Park, or dancing the evening away in front of our building where we have local entertainers perform for all of the community to enjoy.
