Our Services

We are dedicated to providing quality nursing care. Whether you need short-term rehab or long-term nursing care, the Admissions department can assist you in the admission process from your current location. Qualified, licensed nursing personnel provide all residents with 24-hour nursing care. The goal of our staff is to restore or rehabilitate residents to their maximum functional potential. Our interdisciplinary team will meet with you and your family regularly to discuss your medical plan as designed by your physician.

What sets us apart?

By being attached to EAMC-Lanier, our residents have access to many services that other nursing homes are unable to provide. Knowing that 24-hour emergent care is just down the hall gives our residents and families peace of mind. Plus, our team includes a registered dietitian, a licensed social worker, a licensed beautician, cardiac rehab services, services for patients with diabetes, pain management, laboratory, radiology, respiratory, skin care, optometry and podiatry services. We also provide in-house physical, occupational and speech therapy services through RehabWorks.

Our Activities

At EAMC-Lanier, our nursing home offers meaningful activities to promote quality of life for our residents—annual events include a fall festival, country fair, and family Christmas parties. Plus, we have activities designed to encourage continued community involvement for our residents—these include “Adopt-a-Resident for Christmas” and “Adopt-a-Grandparent.”
