I would recommend this facility. The nursing staff builds bonds with the residents and treats them like family. Often in the facility you can hear them joking and laughing. The therapy department is one of a kind for staff and results!

– Jada

Everyone has been very friendly. They are usually quick, 10 - 15 minutes, to respond to the call light. The food is decent, not great, but alright for a nursing facility. Overall this place is pretty nice.

– Jim

The staff is very friendly and helpful!

– Danielle

Patience is one great nurse. The nursing staff is good overall. The PT and OT folks Ryan and Mel are fantastic. I had two aides that went above and beyond they know who they are. The food could use an upgrade.

My brother recently stayed here for a short rehab, the first night he said was a little rough getting use to a new place, but everyone made sure our complaints were heard and fixed in a timely matter. You can definitely feel like the staff cares.

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.
