Our Living Communities are Eagle Ridge, Cardinal Hills & Canary Cove. Our home is continually on the path of Culture Change, which means that our focus is on “Resident Centered Care.” Our daily activities revolve around our Residents’ needs & wishes, not our own. And we make strides every day to make this a home away from home for every Resident who gives us the opportunity to care for them.
We accept residents who require the following types of care: Rehabilitation, Long-term care, Critically Ill, and Alzheimer/Dementia.
Our Director of Nurses is Kristen Starkey.
The Activities Department is a vital part of our Residents’ lives, as it encourages social interaction and development. Numerous activities are offered to the Residents. Some examples are: physical and sensory motivation, Saturday movies, church services by local churches, raised bed gardening, Wii therapy, individualized birthday parties, bingo, cooking classes and organized clubs. Our Residents and staff also love to take trips to the St. Louis Cardinals games, the Casino, fishing, and dining around town.
Our Activities Center is complete with a full kitchen that the Residents love to use to make homemade goodies; a computer to play games & check their emails; a big screen TV for movie nights; arts & crafts area, etc. During some evening hours, it is “the place to be” for social activities such as “Monday Night Poker Night”.
Our Residents also participate in the mission of our home through Resident’s Council Meetings.

Three requirements for Medicaid coverage are to be in a Medicaid certified (vendor) bed (which are offered at our facility), have assets of less than $5,000 for a single person, and meet the state level of care medical requirements. You may be able to keep your home and have life insurance policies or prepaid burial plans with total cash surrender values less than $1,500 or an irrevocable preneed burial contract. For married couples, the spouse who remains at home will be able to keep some assets above the $5,000 limit. A division of assets is used by Medicaid to help prevent the spouse remaining at home from being impoverished due to the cost of nursing home care. The spouse remaining at home may also qualify to receive part or all of the nursing home resident’s monthly income. Medicaid can be applied for by contacting the local Division of Family Services Office at (573) 783-5596.
Please refer to our SwingBed/ECF Program, as this type of stay/coverage is offered in our hospital.
To receive Skilled Nursing Medicare benefits in a long-term care facility, you must have been hospitalized for at least a 3 midnight stay/days within the past 30 days. In addition, you must also require 24-hour skilled nursing care or full-time therapy services. Medicare will cover the total cost of the first 20 days of your long-term care facility stay, except for any charges that Medicare does not allow (for example, telephone charges and laundry fees). On the 21st day, you will have a Medicare co-pay. For 2019, the per day co-pay amount is approximately $171. If you have a supplemental insurance, these additional costs may be covered. The maximum number of skilled nursing care days covered by Medicare may be up to 100 days per benefit period. No benefits are available after 100 days of care in a “benefit period”.
If the long-term care facility determines you no longer require skilled nursing care, then you no longer qualify for Medicare Skilled Nursing coverage. A “Denial Letter” must be issued to you by the facility stating the decision. If you disagree with the decision, you may appeal by calling 1-800-347-1016.
