Designed in 2007, 3 private hospice suites were added to DuBois Nursing Home for those in the final stage of life. Our hospice suites are where family and friends can gather in private to share final moments and say their good-byes. We work with several Hospice agencies to provide additional care and counseling to both patients and families.
Those of us who work in long term care understand better than most how difficult caring for a loved one at home can be: 24 hour days without end and no rest. We offer respite services at all levels; enhanced independent living, personal care, and skilled nursing at affordable prices as low as moderately price hotel rooms. So take a break and entrust us to give loving care almost as good as your own.
Offering a host of events designed to keep residents active, DuBois Nursing Home’s calendar is diverse and engaging. Residents may participate in Rosary, devotions, bible study, interfaith services, donut socials, movies, games, exercise and attend special events such as musical performances. They can also take excursions such as outdoor fishing, attend camp fires, local parades and more. With these dynamic activities and so much more, residents have a range of choices designed to help them remain active.
Next Generation Fitness Program
We offer a low-priced, fully monitored workout program for area residents 40 years of age and over. With a referral from your physician and a low monthly fee, currently $15, we'll schedule you for 3 one-hour workouts each week in an environment where you'll workout with people of your own age and capabilities, not the younger crowd found in most exercise clubs. We're open from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., so we can accommodate most schedules.
Skilled Nursing Care
If you or your loved one needs nursing, rehabilitation, or respite care, DuBois Nursing Home offers professional nursing and rehabilitative services with a personal touch. Whichever service is right for you our personable staff members meet residents’ needs with courteous, compassionate care.
