Espanola Nursing Home

Our fully accredited 62 bed home is physically attached to the hospital which facilitates easy access to all services. The residents reside on 1 of 2 units; each having their own courtyard for outdoor pleasure. Our home houses a beautiful palliative care room which allows residents and their families to spend final hours or days in serenity and privacy. The residents also have the opportunity to enjoy our snoezelen room. This room is designed with special equipment to gently stimulate the senses in a calming environment.
