Mt. Carmel Rehabilitation and Nursing Center offers short-term patients and residents a warm and friendly atmosphere. Located in historic north Manchester, Mt. Carmel overlooks Wagner Park and is only one block from the highly-regarded Currier Museum of Art. Mt. Carmel's three nursing floors are separately designated for residents according to care needs including; long-term care, dementia/Alzheimer's care and skilled nursing/short-term rehabilitation. Almost two thirds of Mt. Carmel's 122 licensed beds are in private rooms. A protected and shaded courtyard affords easy outdoor access in the warmer months and picturesque beauty throughout the winter months.Recently, Mt. Carmel initiated a renovation program which has added central air conditioning, a fully automatic sprinkler system, and is upgrading furnishings and decor.
Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Services
We provide rehabilitation therapy and nursing care for patients after hospitalization. Such "post acute" care is often needed after today's shorter hospital stays and may be appropriate following:
General or cardiac surgery
Joint replacement and orthopedic surgery
Traumatic and brain injuries
We also provide complex nursing care for:
Specialized skin and wound care
Nutritional support and diabetes management
Hospice or "palliative" care is available if curative or restorative care is no longer appropriate and desired for terminally-ill individuals. Hospice care focuses on providing comfort and pain relief as well as pastoral support and counseling for patients and family.
Alzheimer's & Dementia Care
People with Alzheimer's or similar type of memory impairment usually benefit from a structured routine and supportive social environment separate from other long-term care residents. We provide a special secured unit for residents who are able to participate in and benefit from structured activities.
Short-Term Respite Care
We provide short-term respite care when an at-home caregiver is temporarily unavailable or in need of extended personal time away.
Individuals with chronic illness or late-stage Alzheimer's disease are cared for with the goal that they attain their highest functional ability. Individualized care programs provide restorative and rehabilitation services as appropriate to achieve that goal.

Discharge planning consultation and coordination of home care service
