Nazareth’s not-for-profit status implies quality. According to figures based on Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services data, not-for-profit nursing homes:

  • Provide more hours of care per patient day
  • Invest more resources in resident care
  • Average significantly fewer deficiencies than for-profit homes

Our people are our difference, and for 144 years we have faithfully provided unprecedented care for each individual whose life we’ve been privileged to share. Our expertly trained staff members dedicate themselves to you and your needs, in a community that offers the exceptional care, up-to-date facilities and modern living spaces you desire and deserve.

Palliative and Hospice Care

Palliative care teams specialize in treating people suffering from the symptoms and stress of serious illnesses. They provide a separate level of care in coordination with the doctors and nurses to set goals for recovery, communicate with patients and family and manage the stresses of the illness or injury. We integrate some of our special uniquely Nazareth services with this level of care.

When the quality of life for a long term care resident declines significantly, hospice care can be provided. Hospice care focuses exclusively on the comfort level of the patient.

Wonderful Home

My aunt spent many wonderful days at Nazareth, as a patient getting physical therapy and then as a full-time resident. The caregivers were all personable, devoted, and truly involved in their work with the residents. They knew my aunt well and catered to her wants and needs. We felt blessed that her last days were spent at Nazareth. When she passed, the nuns filled the hallways, singing hymns. It was such a spiritual experience, as was her memorial service in the chapel at Nazareth. I would highly recommend this facility.
