Our Skilled Nursing facility at United Living Community provides full-service care for people who require professional nursing care health services on a 24-hour, daily basis. We are Medicare/Medicaid certified, and we have 81 beds, with 21 semi-private rooms and 39 private rooms. All of the rooms have private, handicap-equipped bathrooms and locked storage for things such as hearing aids and dentures.
We have a full staff that includes:
- Registered Nurses
- Licensed Practical Nurses
- Certified Nursing Assistants
- Registered Dietician
- Registered Physical Therapist
- Contracted Registered Occupational Therapist
- Contracted Speech Therapist
These professionals have education, experience and a genuine interest in geriatric health, so they give our residents the best care possible.
In addition to providing three nutritious meals every day, our Skilled Nursing facility is designed to take care of our residents' needs, including bathing, grooming, dressing, medication distribution and more.
Residents can participate in planned daily activities, chapel services, and programs with the children from the Early Learning Center of Brookings. Our facility has many community spaces for residents to gather and socialize with fellow residents or friends and family that come to visit.
We also offer Intermediate Care to individuals who require professional health services on a 24-hour, daily basis, but who do not need daily therapy care. Residents who receive Intermediate Care can participate in all of the same activities and programs as residents who are under our Skilled Nursing umbrella.
We want ULC to feel like home for our residents and we do everything we can to bring comfort, care and activity together in order to create a vibrant living environment.
