At Mayo Clinic Health System’s skilled nursing facilities, we work hard to be the second best option to home for various types of residents, including:
Residents who need long-term care because they can no longer live at home due to illness, injury or age-related health difficulties
Residents who need short-term care while recovering from an illness or injury
The needs of our residents always come first, and we work hard to provide excellent care and service. Our basic services include 24-hour nursing care, nutritionally well-balanced meals, snacks, housekeeping and laundry services, social services, transportation and a robust schedule of activities.
