Located at the edge of Albia, our residents enjoy the serene, country-like setting along with the deer, turkey and pheasant. Our staff is highly experienced and very attentive to each of our residents, many of whom spend only a few short weeks with us while rehabilitating from illness or injury, or while on respite away from family. Other long-term residents get to know our staff and become our extended family.

We offer rehabilitation services, skilled nursing care, long term care and hospice care. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for Iowans and their families during life's health transitions through compassionate individualized care.
