For our long term residents, nothing is as important as the quality of nursing care and the upbeat attitude of the nurses, aides and support team that they encounter on a daily basis. Dry Harbor offers a complete range of nursing home services provided by registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and nursing assistants, all of whom are professionally trained, carefully screened, and chosen for their skill and bright demeanor. There is always a physician on premises or on call to treat resident or patient conditions.

On the sunny upper floors of our complex are Dry Harbor’s long term nursing home units, with most rooms offering a panoramic view of the entire borough. These units provide 24-hour skilled nursing and custodial care, and a home-like setting for residents who need assistance with daily tasks and/or require long term stays. Each unit has its own clinical care team comprised of registered nurses, certified nursing assistants, nutritionist and therapists. By localizing staff in this way, they become familiar with the residents on their floor and their special strengths, needs and requirements. It builds stronger caregiver relationships. Our rehabilitative, restorative, and ongoing skilled nursing care is given in a warm, supportive environment. The staff collaborates on a personalized care plan appropriate for each resident, focusing on individual goals determined by the resident, his or her family, and the medical team. We take pride in making living conditions comfortable for our long term residents. Healthy meals are served with choices for individual tastes. A lively and innovative recreation program includes engaging daily activities that gives them plenty of opportunity to socialize. And there is always a special event to look forward to: holidays, birthdays, visits and cultural events.
Many of our nursing home residents have medical or social needs that require special attention. To serve them, we have developed a number of specialized programs that deliver services within the Dry Harbor complex. All of our programs are staffed with the finest, well-trained professionals and are overseen by our physicians.
