Marian Home - Nursing Care

Marian Home & Village is committed to helping our residents thrive physically, socially, psychologically, and spiritually. Our staff of Medicare-certified nurses provide round-the-clock, personalized care for each resident. Our goal is to provide comfort, encourage independence, and give our residents the care they need to feel their best.

As part of our mission, we provide specialized long-term care to help those residents who struggle with disabilities and chronic illness. In 2019, we completed construction of our new Summit Rehabilitation Center, where we provide ongoing physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, wound therapy, and fall management.

Our experienced and caring therapists are hands-on and offer comfort and encouragement. They deliver the latest techniques with state-of-the-art equipment to improve patients’ lives after physical challenges or illness, with the primary focus to return you to your highest practical well-being. If returning home is your goal, our team of therapists, nurses, nurse practitioners, and caregivers will work tirelessly to assist you in making that happen.
