Crowne Healthcare of Eufaula is a 180-bed Skilled Nursing Facility in Eufaula, AL (The Bass Fishing Capital of the World!) - one hour south of Columbus, GA and one hour north of Dothan, AL. They've recently completed a remodel to add more private rooms, a complete rehab wing with a lounge complete with a Wi-Fi sitting area. They'll be starting another remodeling project to add a Transitional Care Unit that will include a fully functioning kitchen, bathroom and laundry area. The Therapy Department has two gyms with one having a wall of windows overlooking an outside area that is also used for therapy activities in the warmer months. Crowne of Eufaula is also a Dementia Focus Facility with a separate unit for Alzheimer/Dementia patients. From this unit they have access to an outdoor setting area and a private gazebo. They also have a dedicated staff specially trained to work with Alzheimer/Dementia residents with their own Activities Director and CNAs to care for these patients. They treat a large number of highly functioning residents with roughly 60% of their caseload returning to home or assisted living. The Administrator, Director of Nursing and the entire Nursing Staff are very "Pro" therapy. They have a great working relationship with the therapists and help to keep each other updated and informed on the residents.
