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. The Galena-Stauss Nursing Care Center offers both skilled and intermediate levels of care for residents. 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.
