Catering to your unique needs
With our full array of services, you're ensured that your family member is receiving the very best in care and quality of life. From superb medical care to invigorating daily entertainment, our residents' every need is thought of and taken care of.

One of the primary goals of Somerset Woods Rehabilitation and Nursing Center is prevent re-hospitalizations of our residents. The residents in our care are already in a compromised state of health, and hospital confinement can lead to harmful exposure to secondary infections, as well as adding to the stress of our residents and their families.
Telemedicine provides a way for our physicians to treat residents at all hours without having to send them to the emergency room. Rather than subject our residents to long waits at the hospital, the technology of telemedicine allows for immediate diagnosis by a doctor. This includes late nights, weekends, and holidays. The Telemedicine doctor can then begin treatment of conditions without ever having to send the resident out of the facility.

Experience Gourmet Dining
Somerset Woods provides a dining experience on par with your favorite restaurants. Sumptuous cuisine is meticulously planned and prepared so that not only are they nutritious, but their taste will satisfy even the most discerning of palates.
The presentation of the meals along with the restaurant-style service in our beautiful dining rooms create an atmosphere where the residents truly feel that they are "eating out" in style. Alternatively, we have smaller dining venues for those occasions when a resident may want to eat with their family members or a smaller group.
All of our meals are prepared for each individual resident under the guidance of a licensed dietician. A dietitian reviews the nutritional status of each resident paying attention to their individual age, health status, and food preferences to determine their optimal diet. This ensures that each resident's specific dietary needs and preferences are met.
Here, dining isn't just a meal; it's an experience
