Skilled Nursing Facilities

Thank you again to everyone at Sippican that was involved in the care of my dear wife. Her days were filled with love and comfort, thanks to the excellent staff at Sippican - from the Program Director to the wonderful woman who cleaned her room. The outpouring of love and care that was shown by the staff was truly touching. I have never encountered such a caring group of employees; If you ever need any recommendations, please don’t hesitate to call me.

Sippican Healthcare Center

Individualized healthcare and family values.
Opening the doorways to functional and fulfilling lifestyles.

We are very proud of the comfortable elegance that our facilities provide to our residents.
In designing living accommodations, we paid special attention to details. Private and semi-private rooms are pleasantly decorated. Each has an individual look. They are large enough to truly allow for optimum comfort and convenience. Each has a private bath. Residents are encouraged to add their personal touch to their rooms. A favorite piece of furniture, pictures, cherished knickknacks can help make any room more like home.

On our resident floors, there is a large sitting room and a kitchen where patients and their guests can gather to socialize or share a snack. There is also a library and music room, activities room, year round green house, patio, therapy rooms and beauty salon. The formal dining rooms have the elegance of a world class restaurant. Our selective menu includes regional and international specialties and seasonal favorites, all of which are prepared under the supervision of a registered dietitian and medical staff.

Our Staff
Our professionals work 24-hours a day to provide the highest quality care.  The staff represents a wide range of specialties, including physicians, nurses, therapists, social workers and nutritionists. Together they create a restorative program suited to individual needs and then work to maximize the potential of their patients each day of their stay.

Residents may choose to have their personal physician provide their care. However, if that is not possible, for whatever reason, our facility staff will assist in selecting a physician that meets the approval of the resident and their families.

A resident’s physician, in conjunction with our interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals, will develop an individual program of restorative care for each resident. It is our goal to provide all of our residents with an active and fulfilling lifestyle.

We have built our reputation on our quality nursing, medical and therapeutic team. The care and services they provide not only meet, but surpass state and federal guidelines.

The Resident’s Family
A resident’s illness or injury impacts their entire family. Here, a resident’s family is considered to be an integral part of their care. Families are invited to actively participate in goal-setting, conferences, teaching programs and counseling sessions. They will work with the same members of the care team throughout a resident’s stay.

Learning to care for and adjust to a loved one with a disability can be an enormous task for a family. Our social workers can help address these complex issues. In addition, support groups are organized especially for family members. At these meetings, families can share their feelings and thoughts with others who are in similar situations.

We invite you to personally visit our Healthcare Centers.  We think you will agree that they are truly very special places. Call today to arrange your personal tour of a facility.
