Skilled Nursing

plum-848x400-29

Skilled nursing is needed when you or your loved one requires a licensed nurse to manage, observe, or evaluate your care. Our nurses are compassionate and well trained, and they truly care about each resident.

At Pioneer House we have a Director of Nursing who oversees all aspects of healthcare within the community.

To ensure each resident receives the care they need, we provide:

  • Hospice program
  • Respite care
  • Wound care
  • Catheter care
  • Colostomy care
  • Transportation services

Diabetes Management

Our nurses work with residents to take control of their diabetes. They help monitor blood glucose levels, administer and track insulin, make exercise plans, plan menus, and provide education. Our hope is that our residents will leave us with better control over their diabetes care.

Dietary Program

Our registered dietician designs our dietary program with the residents in mind. We follow physician orders to meet the needs of each resident, while making sure the meals are enjoyable and full of flavor. We also administer oral supplements, as prescribed by physicians, and provide regular nutritional assessments by our on-site registered dietician.
