Whispering Heights Nursing

Nursing in Whispering Heights strives to give quality resident centered care. This means that we attempt to give each resident as many options and choices in their care as we can within the resident’s limitations. As a group we have adopted and modified the Pioneer philosophy of care. This vision for us states that “Whispering Heights will dedicate its resources to provide a life affirming, satisfying meaningful aging process served with compassion.” We are identifying and defining values which are meaningful to our facility and staff as we focus on resident centered care. Visit our Pioneer Network website and learn more about its influence in changing nursing home cultures.

Whispering Heights Services

Whispering Heights has many nurses, CNAs and other dedicated personnel that are here to assist residents as their physical and/or mental abilities decline. To assure that the residents remain at their highest practicable level of well being the facility offers many services. Due to the close connection to the hospital skilled nursing care paid by Medicare is available in the hospital, however the nursing care itself in Whispering Heights is from highly qualified staff with an RN on duty at least 8 hours and usually more every day including weekends. The close connection to the hospital provides many other opportunities for services needed by residents such as:

  • Physical/Occupational/Speech Therapies

  • How to Choose the Right Care

In the difficult decision of having to place a beloved spouse, parent or other into a nursing home many factors have to be taken into consideration. One of these factors is to look at not only the location of the facility, but also its quality of care in comparison with other facilities. The final decision needs to be made when doing a tour of the facility and meeting staff and evaluating the environment that will be nurturing your loved one. For comparisons it is helpful to go to the Medicare website and to go to the nursing home compare section.

For any assistance, questions, and/or support the nursing staff is available at any time to take your call at the nursing stations. Please email the Director of Nursing, Marva Hoogland at 712-476-8212 or marva.hoogland@hegghc.org.
