At Griggs County Care Center (GCCC) we seek to maximize the quality of life for our long-term care population. We are a smaller 44 bed facility. We strive to care for each resident through “person centered care.” Our interdisciplinary departments and compassionate team of caregivers work together with the resident and their families to make care plans that are as unique as the individual themselves.

  • Ambulation
  • Range of motion
  • Activities of daily living
  • Positioning and alignment
  • Skin integrity and wound management
  • Rehabilitative and social dining
  • Weekly and monthly height and weight monitoring.

Special Events

The Care Center is no stranger to special events, whether a visiting polka band, string ensemble or even singers such as Greg Hager! The activities department is continually striving to put on special events that appeal to the many different residents tastes and preferences.

Activities

A positive and uplifting atmosphere sets the tone for a resident’s stay. We employ outgoing and friendly professional staff to create social programs and activities, often specializing the activities to match the capabilities and needs of each resident.

Each resident is given a calendar to keep them informed of upcoming events. Friends and family are encouraged to visit and attend our special events.
