Facility Services
Sweet Home is a Medicaid/Medicare approved skilled nursing facility. We have 42 beds, 26 private rooms and 8 semi-private rooms.  Our facility offers top notch quality care, yet it is small enough to have a home-like environment.  Our cats, Ginger and Fred, live in the facility. We also have a fish aquarium and a beautiful bird aviary by the nurses' station. Occasionally you will find dogs visiting the facility when the staff brings their animals to work.

Adult Day Care services are also available for non-residents.

Residents need appropriate clothing in terms of durability, function and quantity. The clothing should be colorfast and machine washable and dryable. The wardrobe should fit the residents individual needs. It is recommended to mark all clothing items with a waterproof marker upon admission.
