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 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.

Intravenous and Central Line Program

While at the facility, patients can be involved in their favorite pastimes, and meet others with similar interests.

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.
