Welcome to Santa Maria Care Center
Santa Maria Care Center has been in the neighborhood providing family orientated essential nursing and clinical services to the Santa Maria area since 1961. We invite you to see how this gem of a care center rates among our peers! Centers for Medicare provides independent ratings for all Skilled Nursing Facilities. Check it out often because ratings change depending on inspections and conditions: http://www.medicare.gov/NHCompare/Include/DataSection/Questions/ProximitySearch.asp
Santa Maria Care Center provides a multi-disciplinary therapy and nursing approach, allowing patients access to a range of suitable programs including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, and wound care.
Santa Maria Care Center cares about its patients and residents. If you come here for short term rehab and discover you like the attention and care you receive, you are welcome to stay with us and call us home! This is a good question to ask other providers!
Drop by! Come meet us!
We are a bunch of caring souls who have found a livelihood that fits! Give Larry a call. He is both our Administrator and Admissions Coordinator. His is the first office you pass and his door is usually open! He will walk you through the sometimes difficult and potentially emotional maze of decisions you are facing. If not Larry, Cicely is across the hall. She runs all things business. She will help you know what your Medicare and/or your private insurance will cover. She is also available to help with the MediCal application process. Around the corner is Marilyn, RN. As Director of Nursing, she is where the really tough questions get answered. Across the Activity Room is where Denny and Sam and Denny's dogs reside! As Social Service Coordinator extraordinaire, Denny helps you get adjusted to your time with us. She also helps you transition and prepare for your trip home. She also helps you become a dog lover! Sam is our enthusiastic Activity Ringleader! (He also thinks he's a Nurse!) With his sidekick Angie, he gets you involved to the best of your ability. He also makes sure you have the correct walker, wheel chair, your own glasses and a refill of coffee. Angie gives manicures, hand massages and lots of simple hand holding! Maria is Dietary Manager and with her team, she puts out a beautiful menu of yummy feel good comfort food specifically attuned to your dietary restrictions and/or nutritional needs. There are too many others to mention. If you come stay with us, you will get very acquainted with the Charge Nurses who give medications and keep in touch with your physician, the Treatment Nurse who tends to wounds, and the real hands-on caregivers- the CNA's. You will know them by name and thank them as they love and care for your special one. Ram heads up maintenance and laundry to keep the lights on, your cloths washed and back to your closet, and the floors polished keeping the whole facility fresh and clean. We are family owned. Give us a chance to care for your family!
