We’re More Than A Nursing Home
Life at Breese Nursing Home
Our patients and their loved ones arrive as friends but quickly become our family. The facility staff strives to provide our patients with first class customer service and care. Patient satisfaction and quality outcomes is a top priority of our entire staff.
We feel that we do not work in a facility but rather we work in the patient’s home. We strive to provide patient-centered care around the clock. We ask the patient about their normal routine from wake up time to shower or bath time, how they enjoyed spending their free time and accommodate those needs.
We provide medical care in a clean, friendly environment and offer personalized comprehensive support services to enable each patient to achieve optimal physical and emotional health.
Empowering our patients is an opportunity for the patient to continue to make their own decisions and maintain the sense of control they enjoyed throughout their adult life.
