About Lynn Care Center
Established in the late 1960s as a 40-bed unit of Warren Memorial Hospital
and re-established for long-term care in the late 1970s, Lynn Care Center
remains dedicated to providing quality care for patients who need post-hospital
rehabilitation and skilled nursing care as well as for long-term residents.
The exterior of Lynn Care is designed to look like a private home, with
accessible outdoor gardens and porches. Inside the building, we’ve
used indoor plants, aviaries, aquariums and artwork to create peaceful
and engaging living spaces. These elements add warmth, color and vitality
and make living in Lynn Care more like living at home. Because we want
to provide an enlivening environment, we have pets that live at Lynn Care
including cats, birds and fish.
We offer skilled care for short-stay patients who need post-hospital skilled
nursing or rehabilitation services including physical, occupational and
speech therapy related to conditions such as stroke, arthritis, hip fracture,
hip or knee replacement, cardiac disease, pulmonary disease, and diabetes.
We have a 26-bed memory support unit (Shenandoah Gardens) for residents
with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The unit has a secure wander
garden that allows those residents to go outside safely and remain within
the facility grounds. Another part of the facility is Park Lane, an exclusive
unit with six private rooms, each with its own private bath, including
shower. This unit features an intimate dining room and private sitting
area. A nurse is on duty in Park Lane 24 hours a day just to care for
these six residents.
Lynn Care Center is surveyed by the state each year for long-term care
certification for Medicare and Medicaid.
As a part of Warren Memorial Hospital, Lynn Care’s direct access
to the hospital building has many advantages for the residents, including
the ease of access to acute medical care for emergencies.
