Robert Packer Hospital Personal Care Home, located on the Towanda Campus
The Robert Packer Hospital Personal Care Home, located on the Towanda Campus is a unique setting for individuals who require some personal assistance to maintain an independent, active and self-sufficient lifestyle. The combination of housing, personalized support services and health care is ideal for individuals who need help with daily activities but not the skilled medical care of a nursing home setting.
Staff is on duty 24 hours a day to assist with personal hygiene such as bathing and dressing, and with the tasks of daily living. We also offer beauticians services twice a week to our residents to help them feel and look their best. Residents can enjoy security and peace of mind knowing that the adjacent Skilled Nursing Unit is available to provide a higher level of care if they need it. On site providers and podiatry are available, as well as physical and occupational therapies and dialysis and infusions.
Our goal is to treat each individual as family, and we encourage residents’ family, friends and neighbors to be involved. For a tour, call 570-268-2424.
