Far from the sterile, clinical trappings of traditional nursing homes, our community is committed to creating real homes for our residents. That means building environments specially designed to suit their needs. Creating flexible staff schedules to better fit the rhythms and routines of each resident. And getting to know and cherish our residents as the unique individuals they are.
Specifically designed around spaces where daily life happens, our private and companion rooms provide opportunities for excellent 24-hour professional nursing care.
To serve your loved one’s unique needs, we offer two types of care environments:
- Long Term Care Households
Specifically designed around spaces where daily life happens, our two skilled nursing households are smaller settings for just 12-14 residents each. The households are modeled after a real family home, and staffed by specially trained teams of flexible caregivers.
Here, the emphasis is on the social experience, with shared living rooms, daily group activities, and family-style meals prepared on-site in the heart of each household — the warm, inviting kitchen. The result is a close-knit community with a real family feel.
- Long Term Care Center
Laclede Groves also offers a more traditional, neighborhood-style care center. Here, you’ll find the same person-centered philosophy of care, dedicated staff, and beautiful surroundings, but with a greater emphasis on privacy and personal space.
