Care Center Nursing Home

About Our Care Center

A five-star rated senior care center, the Knute Nelson Care Center provides around-the-clock health care and daily living assistance for older adults, both long- and short-term. 

The facility is organized into neighborhoods and each resident has a private room. Even though most have complex medical needs, they thrive because of the nursing care and attention they receive. Their dignity is first and foremost as we provide assistance with their day-to-day needs such as bathing, dressing and toileting.  

There are numerous activities to enrich mind, body and spirit each day, from cookies and coffee, concerts and Bible study to happy hours, crafts and more. Meaningful activities that give their days purpose and meaning.

Short-Term Rehab

Finding exceptional senior rehab care is easy with our interdisciplinary team of skilled nurses and physical, occupational and speech therapists. Featuring our remodeled suites and therapy gym, we have created a caring, dignified and empowering environment in which patients help direct the course of their care.

Our therapy gym is equipped with state-of-the-art tools and equipment to help our patients regain the functional skills, strength and mobility needed to return home as soon as possible.

Long-Term Care

Our long-term care center features two neighborhoods for residents, the Maples and the Pines. In each neighborhood, residents will find dining and activities that are centrally located. This allows us to provide an enhanced level of service to our residents.

24/7 Medical Care and Peace of Mind

Nursing staff are on-site 24-hours per day. Your Mom or Dad is taken care of any time of the day or night. Some things nurses help residents with include:

  • Complex medication management, including IVs 
  • Diabetes management
  • Incontinence and catheter care 
  • Colostomy care 
  • Daily living activities such as bathing, dressing and toileting 
     

For you, a Care Center means peace of mind. There’s no need to wonder if they’ve taken their medication, if they’ve eaten, if they’ve fallen or if they’re safe. If you call and they don’t answer the phone, you won’t need to worry if something bad happened.  

YMCA Childcare at Knute

Children in the newly opened daycare center within the Knute Nelson Care Center visit residents for weekly activities. They also often walk through the Nursing Home singing or using the hallways as an extension of their classroom, looking, for example, everything they see that's red.
