Northfield Care Center
Northfield Care Center was established in 1969 to provide housing and care choices for older adults in our community. Now the Care Center provides skilled nursing for those requiring 24-hour long-term care and short-term rehabilitation. This service involves health evaluation and treatment of residents who require skilled nursing or rehabilitation staff to manage, observe, and evaluate the resident’s care. It includes nursing services performed by registered nurses (RN), licensed practical nurses (LPN), and nursing assistants.
Residents at Northfield Care Center enjoy a loving, nurturing environment. Staff recognizes the concerns involved with the transition to a care facility and strive to make each move as pleasant an experience as possible. A commitment to excellent service is made to each resident.
