Long Term Care

Hampshire Memorial Hospital Long-term Care is dedicated to providing quality care for those who can no longer care for themselves. We offer skilled nursing care including physical, occupational and speech therapy. Our staff to resident ratio in this 30-bed unit allows us to give the best care possible. In fact, we have received national recognition for our Long-Term Care residents' satisfaction. As a part of Hampshire Memorial Hospital, direct access has many advantages for the residents, including the ease of access to acute medical care for emergencies.

Assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL)

In many cases, long-term care is not limited to medical care—such as skilled nursing, IV antibiotics, and therapy. Many patients also require assistance with their activities of daily living (ADLs) and / or instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs)

Examples of ADLs and IADLs include:

  • Bathing and Grooming
  • Dressing
  • Assistance while using the bathroom
  • Driving
  • Housekeeping
  • Eating
  • Transferring from bed / chair
  • Medication management
  • Pet care
  • Emergency alarm responses
  • Communications
  • Cleaning / housework
  • Financial management

Life Enrichment Activities

Long-term care members and their family members receive monthly activity calendars.

Activities include:

  • Bingo
  • Crafts
  • Family dinners each month
  • Games and Puzzles
  • Movie Nights
  • Newspaper Delivery: available on Wednesday


Visitors are welcome anytime. If you wish to visit your loved one after regular hospital hours, please enter through the Emergency Department (ED) and ring the doorbell on the wall. A member of the ED staff will let you in.
