Our History

The History of Walnut Place

A leader in geriatric health care since 1980, Walnut Place began with an honest commitment to the health and wellbeing of residents and their families. Now, 35 years later, that devotion and dedication has not changed. We were there then. We’re here now. And we know and understand how to help.

Walnut Place offers a variety of high-quality programs and services that prove our leadership in the industry, including:

  • Complex Wound Care Program: Immediately upon admission, our board-certified physician and nurses provide wound evaluations and treatments. Our services include lymphedema therapy by certified occupational therapists, combined decongestive therapy, hivamat therapy, patient and caregiver education, nutritional evaluations, IV antibiotics and more, along with Health Navigator Services to ensure proper discharge planning and post discharge follow up.
  • NICHE: Through our participation in the NICHE program – the largest geriatric nursing program available – we are able to offer evidence-based, interdisciplinary approaches that promote positive experiences for the older adults in our care. This leads to greater satisfaction rates for our patients and their families.
  • Health & Wellness Navigation: Our trained Wellness Navigation team partners with residents to anticipate needs and address them-from day-to-day nutrition, fitness and life-enriching activities to preparation and follow-up for hospital care.
  • Trilogy: For post-acute respiratory care, this comprehensive respiratory program is delivered by a respiratory therapist for qualifying diagnoses including chronic respiratory failure (COPD), obesity hypoventilation syndrome, neuromuscular diseases and restrictive thoracic diseases.

“A 20-year veteran in long-term care shares her thoughts about the Walnut Place staff and programming. She says: "For 30+ nights, I slept in the other bed in my mother's room and experienced first-hand the care delivery. I feel I must recognize the teammates who have impressed me as clear industry standouts.”

It has been a very positive experience and the therapy services, especially the team that worked with my mother, were excellent.”
