Tuscola County Medical Care Community is a 159-bed state-of-the-art skilled nursing facility in Caro, Michigan.
Our facility is centered in the rural "Thumb" of Michigan, yet is strategically located to also serve larger cities such as Saginaw, Bay City, Lapeer and Flint.
Accommodations consist of 2-bed, semi-private "suites" providing each resident with his or her own bedroom area equipped with local phone service, basic cable TV and a VHS/DVD player. Each 2-bed suite includes a shared handicap-accessible bathroom. All of our beds are dually-certified, allowing us to provide skilled or basic nursing services appropriate for the individual needs of all of our clients.
Our five nursing units are staffed with licensed professional nurses and certified nursing assistants, 24 hours per day, seven days per week
. Each resident's medical treatment is coordinated by one of the eight physicians who have privileges in our building. Skilled Therapy
and Restorative Programs
are individualized to allow each resident to achieve his or her highest level of function. And Social Services
staff ensure that each resident's psychosocial needs are met in addition to his or her clinical needs. Thirty-six of our beds are contained in two units designated specifically for Alzheimer's Care
. Staff in these two units receive specialized training to meet the unique needs of one of our most vulnerable populations of citizens.
But Tuscola County Medical Care Community is not just a nursing home, or long-term-care facility. Many of the residents we admit come to us for short-term therapy after an acute episode or hospitalization, and return to their homes when their course of treatment is completed. What a privilege it is to provide inpatient rehabilitation services locally, so that our clients may remain close to their loved ones while regaining strength and function after an illness. And for you tech-savvy residents who want to keep in touch with friends and family unable to visit, bring your laptops! Wireless internet is offered as part of the room rate.
