The Dunn County Health Care Center follows a tradition of “Generations of Caring since 1892.” Currently, we are in the process of construction of newly designed neighborhood facilities to replace the existing facility, built in 1972. We were excited to break ground in May of 2012 and anticipate relocating to our new facilities just west of the existing building by August 1, 2013! The new facilities will be much more home-like and less institutional with living rooms, kitchens, dens, porches, patios, private bathrooms in each private room, etc. We are excited about this great opportunity for Dunn County.
Presently, the Health Care Center has all private rooms – something not found in many communities.
Our Memory Care Unit for Alzheimer’s and other dementia is 15-beds, small, quiet and remodeled in 1998 specifically for this purpose. With specially trained staff, indoor and outdoor walking paths and therapeutic activities within a secure setting, this service can benefit qualified residents appropriate for this Special Care unit.
Our arrangement with the local hospital provides daily physician rounds of residents Mondays through Fridays and 24/7 on-call services.
The Health Care Center works with all types of payment sources, Medicaid, Medicare, Veteran’s Administration, Hospice, Medicare Advantage Plans, Wisconsin Family Care, Workman’s Compensation, private insurance and private-pay individuals.
Amenities provided include restaurant style dining, low-cost in-house satellite TV services, telephone services, barber/beautician services, weekly visits to the Senior Center, live entertainment on Friday afternoons, church/worship services and free-transportation from the referring hospital or other facility.
The Health Care Center has teamed-up with Sundance Therapy services for all your physical, speech or occupational therapy needs in a spacious, comfortable therapy gym. Many folks come to the facility for rehabilitation and return home. So, whether short-term or long-term, Sundance and staff at the Health Care Center will help you obtain and maintain your highest practical well-being and comfort. We also partner with Aggeus Health Care for in-house dental, podiatry, optometry and audiology services to meet your needs.
The Health Care Center’s focus on quality resident care has shown the facility is 4 out of 5 stars at www.Medicare.gov (see nursing home compare section). The staff has worked on quality improvement goals annually since 2008 with Metastar (the Quality Assurance organization for Medicare), to improve care for the residents. With low staff turnover, updated electronic medical records, staff at the health care center can adapt rapidly to the needs of each resident with greater accuracy and fewer errors providing residents improved comfort, safety and satisfaction.
In 2011, 93-94% of residents and families indicated a high level of satisfaction with the Health Care Center facility & services. In Dunn County, we are the preferred Nursing Home provider.
