Maryfield Health Care

You won’t find institutional icons such as nursing stations here.  Instead, you’ll find a groundbreaking approach to skilled nursing:  a neighborhood of six Households reflecting Pennybyrn’s extraordinary Culture of Caring where residents feel respected and are genuinely involved and encouraged to contribute.

Each Household consists of a home; a group of resident bedrooms centered around a Town Square that includes a beauty parlor/barber shop, coffee shop, therapy services, children’s play area, and an entertainment and gathering place.
Like any home, these Households are designed to be the focal point of residents’ lives.  Meals are cooked-to-order in the Household kitchen and are served family-style by Household staff in the comfort of the Household dining room.  Dining together helps build a tight bond among residents and caregivers.

Residents receive long- and short-term nursing care from a highly qualified staff that includes registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and certified nursing Caregivers and volunteers are cross-trained and thus able to meet whatever resident needs arise throughout the day.

  • Comfortably furnished bedrooms which residents may personalize with favorite possessions
