Nurturing stations enable our residents to maintain their important life activities and provide structure throughout their day. Gardening, working with tools, making the bed, setting the table, are all examples of life skills programming.

Family Involvement

Families are encouraged to visit often and to discuss your loved one’s specific preferences and needs with our staff. We are here to provide you and your loved one with educational and emotional resources. We also invite you to participate in our Memory Care Support Group.

Throughout our lifetime, we create many memories. At Espanola Valley Nursing and Rehabilitation our staff is trained to gently walk hand-in-hand with your loved ones through those memories.
