Our hospital-based Skilled Nursing Facility accommodates 48 residents with all the home-like amenities we could integrate into the clinical setting. Our purpose is to meet the health care needs of our residents in a safe and secure environment while encouraging our residents to feel a part of our Barton community. The Skilled Nursing Facility provides long-term care to residents who do not need acute care, but cannot be cared for at home.
Our Focus Is On Our Residents
The Barton Skilled Nursing Facility is a 48-bed Long-Term Care Facility caring for aging adults in the community. We have been operating since 1997. The Barton Skilled Nursing Facility prides itself on taking excellent care of its residents by our professional and compassionate staff. We have many daily activities, including trips outside the facility and evening programs. You may see us on fishing trips in beautiful Hope Valley or out on the lake on the M.S. Dixie for the afternoon. Holidays are always a special time for our residents with decorations and activities, which include family dinners and parties. We encourage family involvement in the care of our residents. Quarterly, we send out a newsletter to our families. This helps them stay informed of the facilities' events, Frequently Asked Questions and education regarding various issues. We also have quarterly meetings with the residents, Medical Director, nursing staff, dietician and activities staff to assess how the resident is progressing and address any concerns that the resident desires to discuss. The family is invited to attend these meetings with the resident. One of our goals is to create as much of a home-like environment for our residents as possible. Residents and families are encouraged to bring in personal items to make the residents feel at home. Many of our residents enjoy eating their meals in the dining room. We, as a nursing facility, are very proud to have created a place for aging people to come and be comfortable in the latter years of their lives.
