Oregon Living & Rehabilitation hosts grand reopening

Water main break forced seven-month closure of full-service nursing facility

OREGON — Seven months after a water main break forced an early morning evacuation of Oregon Living & Rehabilitation Center’s residents, the full-service nursing facility is open once more.

A grand reopening was held Oct. 18 and residents were scheduled to move in the next day, said Mary Welty, social service and admissions director at the facility.

“We’re very proud of our facility and what we have to offer the community,” Welty said. “We love all our residents and … when the family has to bring their loved one in here, they’re adopted [into our family], just as their family is.”

Oregon Living & Rehabilitation Center provides short- and long-term care. Among the services provided are cardiac therapy; enteral feeding program; dementia care/wander monitoring; physician services; physical, occupational and speech therapy; optometry; dental care; podiatry; hospice services; and various activities.
