Dining Services

Our community offers restaurant-style dining with steam-table service in our main dining room. NRCC transitioned dining services to follow the National Dysphagia Diet guidelines to enhance menu selection for residents. Our dietician establishes individualized meal plans based on preference to promote healthier choices and increase compliance with MDs' orders and diet restrictions.

Social Services

This department identifies support systems for our residents in order to ensure an aftercare plan when the resident is discharged. Areas that are reviewed include family support, transportation to doctor’s appointments, grocery stores and financial concerns. Area agencies are contacted to set up appropriate care in the community. Social services provide follow-up post-discharge with residents to ensure that appointments are kept and goals are being met by the aftercare agency.

Educational Programs

A concentrated effort to coordinate educational programs and clinical competencies with the hospital would be mutually beneficial for the individuals that we collectively care for in the community. NRCC currently offers an individualized comprehensive nursing orientation program, based on the new nurse’s level of experience and the area of practice in the long-term-care setting. The Quality Improvement Director assesses areas of opportunity for improvement and acts as a staff mentor to provide ongoing support.

Therapeutic Recreation

The Therapeutic Recreation department provides a wide variety of programs with meaningful activities which meet the residents cognitive, physical and social abilities on a regular basis. The programs are designed to promote the physical, mental and psycho-social well-being of each individual resident. The recreation programs include Exercise Programs, Art Therapy, Pet Therapy, Monthly Birthday Celebrations, Creative Cooking Programs, Red Hat Society, Men’s Club, Veteran’s Programs, Wii Gaming and Movie Night events.
