Skilled Nursing Home in Garrison, ND

Care, compassion and human connection.

When chronic health issues, long-term illness, or a prolonged recovery diminishes an individual’s functional capacity for daily living, care in a skilled nursing facility is often the best option.

“Our Lord has a special place in Heaven for all of you. You all went above and beyond while caring for my Dad. My Dad told me many times how well he was being cared for. You all made his final months on earth enjoyable and fulfilling. You all are the best!”
 
– Edwin J Boger, son of resident Ed Boger
