Personalized Care

Each Memory Care resident enjoys the most appropriate level of care and support to remain living as independently as possible. We begin with an individual assessment, identifying needs as well as abilities, and develop a care plan that emphasizes both. We not only provide the support where and when it is needed, we also build confidence and self-esteem through promoting each individual’s retained capabilities. We regularly reassess Memory Care residents to ensure the proper type, amount of care, and support that is being delivered.

Skilled Nursing Care


When you are in the hospital following an illness, operation, or injury, we understand that getting back home is your top priority. Sometimes, however, you may still need additional rest, recuperation and care.

Our goal is to provide superior clinical care in order for our guests to gain the maximum benefit from their rehabilitation services. We take a holistic approach to healing, emphasizing physical, mental, and emotional health to prepare the resident for a safe and smooth transition home. Additionally, careful and personalized discharge planning is of the utmost importance to prevent re-hospitalization.

Following a hospital-stay, the rehabilitation services offered at McCrite Plaza can help our guests regain their strength, mobility and health, and ensure a safe return to their home. During your rehabilitation period, the rooms include an HD television with cable, a telephone, restaurant-style dining and a nutrition/beverage bar available 24/7.
