Skilled nursing and care for adults ages 18 and older.
The Villa is no ordinary skilled nursing facility. We enjoy a diverse population with residents from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds, ranging in age from 21 to 92. This diversity is what makes our care community unique, and sets us apart from other skilled nursing programs around the country. “When you walk into the Villa, you realize that this is not your typical nursing home,” states Duncan Murray, Director of The Villa. “Our resident population is younger and more medically fragile than many typical nursing home residents. Twenty-five percent of our population is below the age of 50.”
The Villa provides a safe, loving environment for people who cannot care for themselves. We provide individualized medical, rehabilitative, dietary, social and spiritual services. We are a licensed skilled nursing facility, accepting private pay, long-term care insurance, Medicaid and Medicare. Residents at the Villa represent a diversity in diagnosis, with many families choosing The Villa for loved ones who may not have intellectual disability, but more profound medical needs such as muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy.
The Villa features spacious resident rooms in a hill country setting with peaceful surroundings. Multiple living rooms provide relaxation and social opportunities with friends and families. A comprehensive care plan is developed with the participation of each resident to meet their individual goals. Each care plan details the individual’s medical, dietary, recreational and social goals while outlining the interventions necessary to meet each goal.
Caring individuals who love our residents…
Adults who require professional skilled nursing and rehabilitative care can enjoy a full life at The Villa while under 24-hour licensed medical care. We employ Registered Nurses, Licensed Vocational Nurses, Certified Nurse Assistants and Certified Medication Aides to provide nursing care to each resident. The Villa also retains a Medical Director specializing in Geriatrics, a Licensed Registered Dietitian, a full-time Licensed Clinical Social Worker as well as two full-time Life Enrichment staff. Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy services are also available at our rehabilitation center, The Bridges. For those residents who graduate from formal therapy, residents can maintain the gains in strength and balance in Restorative Therapy six days per week.
We also enjoy our numerous, dedicated volunteers. Individuals, families and groups support our residents a range of ways, from one-on-one visits to group activities and field trips. The Villa employs devoted staff members who love working here. Many staff members have worked here for over 5 years and a few have been dedicated staff for over 25 years!
Daily life enrichment activities provide meaningful experiences…
The Life Enrichment Center is the heart of The Villa, where residents enjoy a variety of activities including music, art, live entertainment and more! Each month, a new schedule of enrichment activities is determined and generally includes music, art, daily news, laughing class, gardening, guided meditation, bible study, chapel and more. Physical activities often include volleyball, bowling, T-ball and basketball. Buddy Walks around Marbridge campus are a large part of daily life at The Villa. In addition, special outings and field trips are made available to our residents such as country drives, trips to the aquarium, museums, sporting events, bowling and more.
Experience the Sensorium….
The Sensorium is a special room with specific sensory equipment and therapy activities to benefit sensory processing difficulties. The room stimulates the five senses. For the visual sense, bubble columns and LED light ropes change color on demand. Olfactory senses are stimulated at the aromatherapy station. Auditory senses receive stimulation through classical music playing in the background while bubble walls blow bubbles matching music tempo. A massage mat calms individuals while tactile stations stimulate touch senses.
