Additional Stay Options


Loving Long Term Care

Helen Purcell is just the right size to provide personal, loving long-term care, because the staff come to know you and your preferences.

Helen Purcell is comfortable and friendly. We are large enough so you can always find people with whom to mix and mingle, and small enough to get to know everyone. You can have company when you want it and privacy when you need it. The perfect blend!

All of this means loving, long-term care, just as Helen Purcell has provided for over 125 years!


Respite & Therapy Stays

A therapy stay is a great way to regain your strength, mobility or speech, so you can return to your work or to your home

Helen Purcell accommodates therapy sessions from the community therapists of your choice. These may include licensed home health professionals, physical, occupational and speech therapists. They can help you with everything from speaking more clearly, to using stairs, to dressing, to having a greater range of motion.

Respite requires a two week stay.


Hospice Stays

This broad spectrum of care provides a quiet, comforting environment for you and your family. At this most difficult time, the entire staff is here for you.

Your hospice provider may bring their skills and comfort to Helen Purcell.
