Galena-Stauss Senior Care


No matter what your age, stage in life, or state of health, you deserve to feel valued, celebrated and respected. You've earned the finest healthcare available. Growing older should never mean settling for less. We believe that the care you receive and the environment you live in should be centered squarely on your needs and well-being. For the Galena-Stauss healthcare professionals who serve you and your family in our Adult Day Care, Assisted Living Center, and Nursing Home, it's as simple as that.

Adult Day Care

Our Adult Day Care Center is a professionally operated program designed to assist older adults who don't want or need the continuous care of a hospital or other long term facility, but may need help with self-care, require supervision, or would like to socialize with others. We offer a variety of health and social services in a protective, sociable and positive group setting. This program provides families with relief from caregiving responsibilities, emotional reassurance, assistance with their family member's care, and short or long term attendance plans.

Adult Day Care has an on-site Registered Nurse Director and Activity Coordinator (CNA), Monday through Friday, 7:00am - 3:00pm, except for holidays. Our nurse and CNAs provide assessments including blood pressure, weight, nutritional status, and note any changes in level of functioning. Our nursing staff also administers medication as ordered and may provide skilled nursing services and treatments with physicians orders, bathing and personal care as indicated or requested. We use a team approach to assure your loved one is well cared for.

Assisted Living

Galena-Stauss Assisted Living believes that independence is a quality of life to be enhanced, cherished and preserved. The community offers a variety of apartment settings for individuals and couples with supportive staff and services. The apartments include a full kitchen, ample closet space, walk in showers, and all are handicapped accessible.

Healthcare services are coordinated by the Assisted Living Director. Our professional staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to respond to the changing needs and/or desires of our tenants and their families. Tenants are provided with routine personal care such as bathing, dressing, grooming, medication management and wellness assessments. We are pleased to assist our tenants with their transportation needs to Midwest Medical Center and Midwest Health Clinic, located just a few short miles west of our facility.

Nursing Home

No matter what your age, stage in life, or state of health, you deserve to feel valued, celebrated and respected. You've earned the finest healthcare available. Growing older should never mean settling for less. We believe that the care you receive and the environment you live in should be centered squarely on your needs and well-being.

The Galena-Stauss Nursing Care Center is home to 57 residents who want and need around-the-clock care by Registered Nurse, Licensed Practical Nurse and Certified Nursing Assistants in a warm, compassionate setting. Our nursing home team will work with residents and their families to coordinate transportation to Midwest Medical Center and Midwest Health Clinic which are located just a few miles west of our facility. We will also transport to other locations.

Our Activities Departments plans a daily schedule of varied and interesting activities and events to keep our residents involved and enjoying themselves. These include community events and outings, cards, crafts, holiday and birthday celebrations, board games, pet therapy, courtyard walk, musical and spiritual programs. Our Beauty Shop is also located on the premises and staffed by a dedicated group of volunteers.

Physical exercise is important at every age and stage in life. Our residents enjoy movement and exercises designed to invigorate, strengthen, and relax. Galena-Stauss Nursing Home has a wonderful Restorative Program designed to promote and enhance the resident's ability to function at their highest level.

Our Interdisciplinary team is composed of the Director of Nurses, Licensed Nurses and Aides, and representatives from our Social Services Department, Nutritional Services Department and Activities Department. Care Reviews are an important way to chart a resident's progress and attend to the changes they may need in order to reach their goals. Directed by our Interdisciplinary team, residents and their family members are encouraged to attend Care Reviews at the time of admission, quarterly and with any change in condition.

Our commitment to putting you first is stronger than ever. We invite you to live it with us and experience the
compassionate care our Midwest Medical Center healthcare professionals have to offer.
