Skilled nursing and compassionate care for short-term rehab patients and long-term care residents

Nemasket offers quality, comprehensive medical, nursing and rehabilitation care; beautiful facilities; air conditioning and a friendly staff of experts who exhibit the utmost respect and dignity. The atmosphere at Nemasket is warm—a place that is easy to call “home.”

Our professionals are dedicated to providing high quality long-term nursing and subacute care. It is our goal to open the doorways to a functional and fulfilling lifestyle for each and every one of our residents.

Our facility is situated on lovely grounds in peaceful Middleborough, Massachusetts in a setting that has been described by residents as “pleasant and comfortable.” Nemasket offers elegant dining, social rooms and finely decorated living accommodations. Our nursing and therapeutic services are second to none. Comprehensive programs offer residents the most modern, innovative therapies available.

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.

Rehabilitation Program
The rehabilitation program is led by a physician who specializes in rehabilitation and physical medicine. The physician has an interdisciplinary group of highly trained and motivated specialists to round out the team – physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech/language pathologists, cognitive therapists, rehabilitation nurses, social workers, therapeutic recreational specialists and nutritionists.

All rehabilitation programs are individually tailored to ensure success. We strive for healthy outcomes. That means using every possible form of effective therapy to accelerate and maximize every resident’s rehabilitation potential.

Rehabilitation programs range from intensive one-on-one therapy sessions to group sessions. This includes a variety of support groups which allow residents the opportunity to learn more about their condition, share experiences with others, discuss concerns and build lasting friendships.

Intravenous and Central Line Program
For some patients, intravenous antibiotic therapy is the most effective treatment for fighting infection. For those patients whose physicians have prescribed intravenous antibiotics as part of their healthcare program, an IV and Central Line program is offered which allows them to continue their therapy in the comfort of our facility.

Residents are always busy if they choose to be. A representative from the activities department greets each resident at the time of admission to discuss personal interests and hobbies. While at the facility, patients can be involved in their favorite pastimes, and meet others with similar interests.

Arts and crafts, physical fitness programs, and discussion groups are all coordinated through the activities department. There are also tea socials, ice cream parties, and cookouts. Outings away from the facility are also scheduled.

In addition to our activities room, we have musical entertainment and a library in the lobby. In our activity room, you’ll find residents playing Bingo, trivia, and card games. We also have a day room in each unit, with a TV for small groups or assisted dining.
