The Scotchman Living Center is a 42-bed facility with large handicapped accessible bathing rooms in both wings, for assisted bath needs. It consists of 14 beds in Memory Care, which includes the following:
- 4 private rooms
- 5 semi-private rooms with 2 beds each
There are an additional 28 resident beds:
- 10 private rooms
- 9 semi-private rooms with 2 beds each. Each room contains an ensuite bathroom.
Residents will have more options for gatherings, events, dining and relaxing. Both wings have separate areas for dining and lounging, including fireplaces. There is a chapel/activities room, a conference and training room, education center and large therapy gym. The gym also contains an occupational therapy kitchen/bathroom, which allow therapists to train patients to utilize those areas in their own home after recovering from an illness or injury.
With this latest addition, Philip Health Services hopes more residents can stay closer to home, with their family and friends during their nursing home stay.
The new facility is a source of pride for the community of Philip, because of the tremendous success of the capital campaign that raised close to $3 million dollars. Much of the expansion and remodel took place during a pandemic, a very difficult task for such a rural setting. The Scotchmen Living Center will have a positive impact on the health of area residents for years to come. Congratulations to Philip Health Services.
