Life Care Center of Rhea County, a skilled nursing and rehab facility in Dayton, invites community members to tour its new building at an open house from 2-5 p.m. on Sunday, March 3.
The new building is located at 10055 Rhea County Hwy. Guests are invited to view the building on guided tours, talk with associates, enjoy light refreshments and enter to win door prizes.
“I am excited about being able to provide residents and families a place to visit that is similar to what they would have at home, like the day rooms,” said Kate Swafford, executive director. “We have one of the largest rehab gyms in Life Care. We look forward to providing these services to our residents in house as well as those on an outpatient basis.”
Life Care Center of Rhea County will offer 24-hour skilled and extended care, transportation to and from medical appointments, on-site rehab and specialized programs. In-house therapists will provide physical, occupational and speech therapies as well as recreational and social activities.
Accommodations for long-term skilled nursing residents as well as short-term inpatients will include 47 private rooms and 21 semiprivate rooms.
Patients will have access to luxurious amenities, including a private dining room and café, a library, a beauty and barber shop, an exercise room, massage therapy, a putting green and an ice cream parlor.
Along with the new building, assisted living services will be an added feature to the campus. The Veranda at Rhea County is an assisted living community that will allow residents to maintain independence and privacy while receiving assistance with administration of medication and other activities of daily living. The Veranda features 30 private suites.
