Through quality nursing care, activities, self-improvement, and friendships, Sidney Health Center Extended Care proves there is more to aging than growing old. We want to show others how companion animals, the opportunity to care for other living things, and the variety and spontaneity that mark an enlivened environment can succeed where pills and therapies fail. In short, we believe:
- Aging is a natural and normal life process
- Aging should not limit a person's right to experience life to its fullest
- People should be able to live their life at their highest level of health, independence, and well-being
We find that people feel more comfortable in surroundings that meet their individual needs for friendships and activities, as well as safety. In striving to meet each individual's unique and specific needs, we offer specialized environments with specialized staff. Admission to all of the following programs requires a Physician's order:
