Long and Short-term Skilled Care
In our Short-term Skilled Care residency, you may get help recovering from an injury, wound, accident, or other medical condition over a short period. Once healed, you’ll return home or to your community of loved ones. If you join our Long-term Skilled Care residency, you’ll receive care for as long as needed.
We offer all private rooms that overlook a view of our beautiful grounds. Also, our high patient-to-staff ratios allow us to provide the best care. Our average is 3.5 HPPD (hours per patient day), while the National Level is 2.27 HPPD.
Every department: dietary, maintenance, therapy, nursing, activities, environmental, reception, consists of folks who are happy in their work and are all a part of the team creating this wonderful place. There is not one thing that I worry about in regards to my mother’s care. I have never been unhappy for a moment since my mother has been there.

We affirm that each resident has a voice in our community. Our Residents’ Council provides an opportunity for independent and healthcare residents to share feedback, organize community life, and work closely with administration.
The council has an Executive Committee that meets quarterly. The Executive Team shares reports with the committee as well. Quarterly, the full Residents’ Council meets as well. Committee reports are shared and actions are voted on by members in attendance. At this meeting, the full administrative team attends, and the Executive Director provides a detailed report including a summary of each department head’s report.
All residents of Brooks-Howell Home are members of the Residents’ Council. The Council seeks to include each resident in the daily life of Brooks-Howell regardless of abilities.
