Sitting just south of where the Naches and Yakima rivers meet in the Yakima valley of Central Washington, Yakima’s unique location and sunny climate have made it an agricultural hub, home to Washington State’s internationally-acclaimed wine industry.
With an urban population of roughly 110,000, Yakima nursing home seniors enjoy a warm, scenic landscape with access to the services and amenities provided by a large metropolitan city.
When making the decision to place your family member or loved one into a long-term care facility, it is important to understand the differences between the types of care. A nursing home is a place for seniors with severe health conditions who require round-the-clock medical monitoring by a nursing staff.
Nursing homes are often confused with assisted living facilities which also provide residential care for seniors. However, assisted living facilities offer assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, meal preparation and housekeeping, but generally do not provide skilled nursing care to their residents. Learn more about assisted living on our Yakima Assisted Living page.
Quality medical care is just a short ride away from a Yakima nursing home at Yakima Regional Medical Center. Founded in 1891, Yakima’s first hospital has grown from a humble seven-room house to a state-of-the-art, 214-bed facility with some of the most advanced technology and equipment in Central Washington.
Yakima Regional’s recently renovated 21-bed, Level III trauma emergency facility is home to the area’s only “15-minute Emergency Room (ER) guarantee,” which guarantees that all patients in the ER will be assessed and triaged within 15 minutes of arrival.
Nursing home seniors receive fast, attentive and compassionate care at Yakima Regional during an urgent medical situation.
In 2006, Yakima Regional launched its Hospitalist program which employs five full-time physicians and two nurse practitioners who specialize in caring for patients during their hospital stays and coordinating care with outside physicians so that patients receive the best possible care.
Should your loved one have an extended hospital stay, a qualified Hospitalist will be on hand to help with the transition to and from their Yakima nursing home.
It would be a shame not to get out a Yakima nursing home once in a while and enjoy one of the area’s 300 days of sunshine a year. A favorite of many residents, the Yakima Greenway, also referred to fondly as “The Jewel of Yakima,” is a collection of public parks, lakes, rivers and paved walking trails which wind around the outskirts of the city. You and your loved one can enjoy scenic strolls in the sun along shaded paths, even stopping for a quick fish on the handicap-accessible fishing piers off Rotary Lake.
Another popular place to visit is the Yakima Area Arboretum, which offers over 46 acres and 2000 types of plants for seniors to explore. Open daily from sunrise to sunset all year round, the Arboretum is also a good spot for bird watching as a wide variety of wildlife inhabit the grounds.
Seniors who reside in a Yakima nursing home benefit from top-notch medical care in a warm, scenic, agricultural setting. Find a nursing home for your loved one today by browsing our list of Yakima Nursing Homes or search for nearby assisted living communities on our Yakima Assisted Living page.
