My 35 year old son has been a resident of the Laurels for 5 1/2 years now! He is non-verbal and very neurologically compromised with a complex medical history.

Would not have my mother-in-law at any other facility. Staff are like family and treat her like their own. Thanks!
My dad just left the Laurels after a extensive hospital stay. He was very happy with the entire Physical Therapy department. He had some good nurses and any problems were always handled fairly quickly. We are thankful for him regaining his strength and being able to come home and walk again!
This rating is purely for nurse Tiffany - the one who calls my grandmother "Zoomi Zoom". THANK YOU. Your kind and compassionate heart is everything anyone could hope for in health care. You are an absolute angel.
The CNA's were for the most part quick and efficient. There were a few times I had to wait over 2 hrs but only a few. They were definitely under staffed. And not many on standby Incase one got sick. Which did happen while I was there. They would not let her leave 3rd shift work even with a fever and... Read More

In the four weeks he was at The Laurels, my father's experience was very positive. The staff accommodated our desire to be very involved in his healing.

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.
