Long-Term Care Center

Residents in the Great Lakes, Garden, Patriot, and Wheels Neighborhoods of HealthSource are just that — “residents.” Each finds expert attention and a restorative approach to establishing and building functional independence.

As part of the HealthSource Saginaw comprehensive continuum of care, the Long-Term Care Center’s programs are designed for:

  • Skilled care — to rehabilitate residents and help them achieve their optimal potential so they can return to an appropriate care setting
  • Extended care — to provide residents with the quality of life and dignity they deserve in a home-like environment

HealthSource also offers a secure neighborhood for residents diagnosed with dementia. On-site psychiatrists in the nearby Behavioral Medicine Center make HealthSource unique in its ability to manage patients in this and all neighborhoods who might be dealing with depression or other mental health issues.
