“We are excited to remain an overall five-star ‘Much Above Average’ rated facility on Nursing Home Compare,” stated Julie Picek, director of nursing at Memorial Community Care.  “Our staff are exemplary and I couldn’t be more pleased with their teamwork and level of care and attention they give to residents. Couple that together with top rated quality measures, a clean and comfortable facility, with a host of activities where family and friends are welcome, and it makes for an excellent experience for those who call Memorial Community Care home.”
