Skilled Nursing At Half the Cost

If you are currently receiving 24-hour skilled care at home, or if you will need it in the future, you might want to consider our Franke Tobey Jones Care Center. Typically 24-hour in-home skilled care is approximately $20,000 per month. At Franke Tobey Jones you will receive so much more starting at $10,500 per month for a lovely private room with a private bathroom.  Many people want to stay in their own home with 24-hour care but do not understand how limited their lives become and also how isolated they feel as well. 

Our private pay skilled nursing is friendly, active and engaging while offering a peaceful and practical environment of quality care. There are beautiful gathering rooms, two dining rooms, outside patios and an outside deck area. We are a Licensed Nursing Home with 43 beds and a 24-hour staff of RNs, LPNs and Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs). In addition, we provide our residents and their families with a multitude of amenities and care services. Our services are provided on a private pay basis, but some supplies and/or therapy services may be billed through Medicare B. We can also assist with billing for those with Long Term Care policies.
