Pioneers Medical Center is dedicated to helping people live longer, healthier lives. For community members who need support at home while ill or recovering from an injury or surgery, Pioneers offers skilled nursing and home healthcare. Our Home Health Team works with the patient, their physician and family members to provide a safe, caring environment without leaving the comfort of home. These services may include disease management and education, medication management, IV therapy, wound care, catheter/ostomy management, injections, personal care and hygiene, and physical and occupational therapy. Pioneers Medical Center can also assist in installing a personal emergency response system for access to 24-hour emergency assistance.
In addition, our well-respected long-term care residence known as the Walbridge Memorial Wing, named for the generous donations of Adelaide and Carl Walbridge, is available for adults requiring a home away from home. The Walbridge Memorial Wing is adjacent to the hospital and Meeker Family Health Center, allowing Walbridge residents the convenience of nearby medical support. A team or more than 30 nurses, certified nursing assistants and support staff provides excellent care and meets or exceeds Medicare, Medicaid and Veteran’s Administration guidelines for long-term care facility certification.
But what is truly special about “The Wing”, as it is nicknamed, is the personal attention each resident receives and the active lifestyle that is encouraged. Residents can participate in residence council, religious services and fellowship, game nights, field trips to local events, special interest clubs, shopping excursions, music nights, monthly birthday parties and more. Pioneers Medical Center makes it a priority to understand the needs of our residents and to provide a comfortable, enjoyable place to call home.
