My father was only at this facility for a week. But during that week, the staff treated him with respect and was very helpful to the family. Our family likeD the home feel of the facility and how the all the residents in a home ate together at one big table.

I started with Ciena in 2013 as a chef and loved the way we cook for the residents with fresh whole foods. I liked the idea of working directly with the residents and wanted to be more involved with this care. I knew I would go back to school and with Ciena's tuition reimbursement it was possible! I...

Both times the hospital discharge planners told me I had to go to other facilities, but I insisted on going to Regency on the Lake! My experience here has been phenomenal; the staff, the therapists… I couldn’t have asked for better. Overall, just very professional.

Skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) like Ciena Healthcare provide crucial services for our most vulnerable population: the frail and elderly. Today’s SNFs have significantly evolved over time to provide both long-term comprehensive care and short-term rehabilitation services. However, in comparison to other medical settings, especially hospitals, SNFs are often overlooked for important resources and funding.

As health care evolves, skilled nursing facilities are increasingly providing care previously delivered in hospitals. Nationwide, the 65 and older population will double over the next 20 years. By 2040, it could triple. As our population ages, SNFs are becoming increasingly vital to the care and wellbeing of our seniors.

SNFs need advocates and allies to actively engage with their representatives and speak up about important issues facing our industry. This page is designed to share ways you can help support SNFs and the vital services they provide for our elders.

Contact Your Elected Officials and Voice Your Support for SNFs!

It is crucial the voices of SNF supporters be heard by Congress. Members of Congress value their constituents’ opinions and it is critical they hear from our advocates and allies.
