Discover a different kind of care - one that ensures that you're surrounded by people who make a difference in your life. At Buckley HealthCare Center, we deliver quality short-term and long term care in a warm, personalized manner. Ours is a flexible, interdisciplinary approach to health care, centered on caregiver compassion and delivered in a comfortable, home-like setting. We serve the health care needs of adults of all ages through a full spectrum of extended care services provided below. Our team of health care professionals tailors programs to meet each patient's needs.

Sub-acute and Skilled Care - We meet the special needs of sub-acute and skilled level patients with physical, occupational, speech and medical nutritional therapies, combined with 24 hour nursing care. Our physician directed sub-acute and skilled health care services are designed to complement a hospital stay or, in many cases, be a substitute for hospitalization.

24 Hour Skilled Nursing Care - Registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and certified nursing assistants provide comprehensive, individualized nursing care 24 hours a day.

Rehabilitation Services - Our comprehensive rehabilitation services round out our spectrum of care. These services, provided by licensed rehabilitation personnel, are available to meet your needs. Our highly trained therapy team is dedicated to regaining and maximizing independence.

Physical Therapy - Physical therapy helps patients regain their strength and mobility, manage pain or adapt to a permanent disability after surgery or a decreased level of function due to illness.

Speech Therapy - Our Speech Therapists help patients overcome communication conditions such as aphasia, swallowing difficulties, and voice disorders.

Occupational Therapy - Buckley HealthCare Center's Occupational Therapists focus on helping patients regain as much independence as possible by using visual perception training, upper extremity strengthening and coordination, and self-care skills.

Medical Nutritional Therapy - Our Medical Nutritional Therapy promotes a better diet and a healthier lifestyle with personal counseling and nutrition guidance based upon our patients needs and preferences.

Long Term Care - Buckley HealthCare Center provides consistent skilled nursing care to patients for support in their daily activities. Through our care, our patients are able to achieve and maintain the highest possible level of function.

Respite Care - Respite Care is a short-term care program designed to give family members a much needed break from the demands of caring for the chronically or terminally ill at home. Whether it's for a weekend or for a few weeks, we provide the patient with a comfortable and secure medical and social environment in a newly renovated, upgraded private room.

Dementia Care - Our approach is designed to reinforce strengths, offer support for daily challenges and recognize the essence of our patients' personalities. We offer a safe, serene and predictable life-style to ensure patients enjoy optimal health, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Hospice Care - Hospice provides specialized care to our patients when their illnesses no longer respond to aggressive, cure-oriented treatments. We provide a special program of care that helps patients receive emotional and physical comfort. Hospice also provides education, support and counseling to the families and caregivers of patients.

Podiatry Care - Quarterly podiatrist visits can be arranged through our Social Services Department.

Recreation Activities - We offer a variety of recreation activities for exercise and wellness, including various religious activities, movies, and special events and festive meals, group outings and community involvement.
