Nursing:

We believe that nursing is the art of caring. Understanding the needs of the resident and the family is a crucial aspect of the care that we provide. Respecting the resident and providing for the individuality of each client is what we strive to preserve. Implementing a resident centered plan of care is another important facet for the nursing department. Supporting the client and family with each interaction is a key element in our ongoing relationships. Never ending appreciation of being given the opportunity to provide care is the basis of the nursing department. Growing in mind, body, and spirit both professionally and personally is vital in enabling us to provide superlative nursing care to our clients.

The nursing department of Alamo Nursing Home is a genuine asset to the community. The leadership has a strong knowledge base and is driven to providing the best care to those we serve - clients needing short-term rehabilitation, long term assistance, or end of life compassion. The award winning staff is committed to providing individual client centered care to all.

The nursing staff consists of several nurses and many certified nurses aides who attend to the needs of the residents as if they were their own family members.
