Our 48-room Skilled Nursing Facility is a part of the Health Center and the Community Center, allowing Health Center residents easy access to community activities. The Skilled Nursing Facility provides services for residents recuperating from illness, injury or surgery, or requiring long-term care.

Health Center residents have private rooms in one of three neighborhoods and bring their own furniture and favorite possessions. Kendal’s noninstitutional design enhances the quality of everyday life: floors are carpeted, there is no public address system, and visiting is not restricted by established hours. Making the decision to move to the Health Center is a team process, and each resident is assured of full partnership in the making of such a decision. Evaluation by a physician is a necessary prerequisite of admission to Taughannock House.

Your health care services are covered by the entry fee and ongoing monthly fees. You are required to maintain Medicare A and B or the equivalent, plus a Medigap insurance policy. Kendal provides the services of a medical insurance clerk who will process your claims and answer questions about benefits. Kendal offers assistance in evaluating your insurance coverage during the admissions process.
