Wayne County Nursing Home (WCNH) is a 192-bed skilled nursing facility located in Lyons, NY. The facility is one of few in New York State to operate under a Household model.
The old "hospital" model that became so prevalent in nursing facilities throughout the nation in the 1960s is gone. There are no large central nursing stations with residents parked around it in geri-chairs. There are no long, isolating hallways of hospital rooms. The noise of carts and equipment doesn't disturb the pleasant, calm atmosphere.

The Household Model focuses on creating a home. The households consist of small groups of residents, and each household is designed with amenities to resemble a traditional family home. The result is more privacy for residents, a calm, quiet environment, a sense of normalcy, and more chances to interact in quality relationships with fellow residents, staff, and family.

Households at Wayne County Nursing & Rehab Center feature:

  • Small groups of residents - 12 residents to a living/activity area
  • Patios & gardens
  • Full kitchens with professionally decorated dining rooms
  • Smaller living rooms with entertainment units
  • Fireplaces at each entrance
  • Laundry rooms
  • Pets - Since the mid-1990's, WCNH has had live-in kitties, before pets were allowed in any nursing home!
  • Integration of all things home-like

See how we have created homes within our residence called households, to provide an efficient, safe and secure environment for our residents, family and staff that is full of life and beauty.  Looking for skilled nursing in a caring, personalized environment?
