MARIETTA – Nestled in a quiet setting at the end of Harmar Street on Marietta’s west side, Harmar Place offers both an extended care home for dozens of Marietta residents and short-term skilled nursing and rehabilitation for others who need temporary care.
Harmar Place this year was chosen Best Extended Care and Rehabilitation Center in the 2019 Marietta Times Readers’ Choice poll.
Harmar Place offers physical, occupational and speech therapy, skilled nursing and memory care. Admissions and marketing coordinator Terri Schneider said the community has space for 86 residents, including 23 short-term residents and 16 memory care residents. Harmar Place has a medical director, she said. “Our people feel like it’s a family atmosphere,” she said.
“Any empty beds fill up quickly,” nursing director Charlene McGrath said. “We have a core staff that have been here many years.”
McGrath said she has been with Harmar Place for 18 years, and her mother was a resident. Daphne Styer, a care plan nurse, said Harmar Place became home for her father-in-law. “We have faith and trust in the staff to care for our loved ones,” she said.
The community’s Fast Track Rehab program offers therapies in comfortable settings. The staff understands that life has its ups and downs, and when people experience a setback because of injury, illness or surgery, Fast Track Rehab gets them back to doing what they love faster. Harmar Place has five private and 18 semi-private recovery suites, and each guest receives an individualized care plan, 24-hour personal nursing care and transportation assistance to medical appointments.
Guests at the community have access to spiritual support from a full-time chaplain. Harmar Place is operated by United Church Homes, which aims to combat aging by building a culture of community, wholeness and peace. Consistent staffing ensures residents’ needs and preferences are met and respected, and Harmar Place offers daily community life opportunities that provide enrichment and engagement.
The memory care neighborhood in the community provides comfort for older adults living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia-related conditions, with private or semi-private rooms available.
