GENESEO, N.Y.; August 30, 2022 – It’s often said that nurses and healthcare workers dispense comfort, compassion and caring without need of a prescription. The Livingston County Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation has embodied this notion and has come to symbolize top-quality care within the region since its construction in 2005. One of the highest rated facilities in the United States, the CNR is nestled in the heart of Livingston County and has made countless impacts on the lives of residents throughout the County and beyond.
Just a short drive from Rochester and situated atop a picturesque hill in a park-like setting in Mount Morris, the Livingston County Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation offers 24-hour skilled nursing services ranging from short-term, post-acute rehabilitative care to traditional long-term care. Residents receive care in a manner that addresses the needs of the individual. Recognizing the potential in every individual, the Center focuses on turning potential into ability, discomfort into comfort. It strives to promote an atmosphere with activities that involve friends, family, volunteers and pets to create a home-like environment for residents.
With an array of options to choose from when selecting a rehabilitation center, the convenience of having a cutting edge facility close by has proven to be invaluable to so many throughout the surrounding counties.
“Being able to move from a hospital setting to a residential rehabilitation center that was close to my home was absolutely invaluable,” added a recent resident who found the care and doting nature of the staff to be exemplary. “Not having to worry about my husband commuting a long distance to see me gave me peace of mind throughout my stay.”
In addition to the Center’s convenient location, the expertise demonstrated by the dedicated and experienced staff coupled with techniques and guidance given throughout the rehabilitation process has continued to reverberate even after discharge.
“I have the best things to say about the staff,” continued the former resident. “I was given direction and comfort, but what I have valued most was the coaching. I had a group of advocates at the Center who were willing to help me throughout my recovery and it relaxed me because it took a lot of pressure off of me and my loved ones. The practices that I learned during my rehabilitation have allowed me to not only recover, but to continue doing things in my life that I enjoy and love.”
Aside from its location, what really sets the CNR apart from other facilities is its award-winning staff – many who have worked there for 10 years or more and have developed a strong connection with patients.
“It’s a great work environment and I really enjoy not only what I do on a daily basis, but the people that I interact with,” added Brittany Yencer, a Licensed Practical Nurse. “It’s incredibly rewarding for me to know that the work I’m doing is going to have such a positive impact on our residents and their families.”
In addition to having a strong sense of purpose in her job, Yencer was quick to acknowledge the Center’s role in offering professional development and advancement opportunities that have helped in shaping her own career goals.
“There are a lot of employees here who have been able to stay and work their way up,” she added. “I’ve had the opportunity to grow as a nurse and as a care provider and have always felt supported. I started here as a Nursing Assistant in 2008 and had the flexibility to continue my education that I may not have been able to pursue at a different facility.”
One of the most comprehensive facilities in the area, the Center offers various treatment methods and state-of-the-art healthcare options ranging from audiology, consulting podiatry, dentistry, speech therapy, ophthalmology, occupational therapy, pharmacological services, hair care and more.
The CNR also features a fully-functional dialysis center with the ability to service up to six individuals at once. Since its opening, the office, which is maintained in conjunction with Wyoming County Hospital, has serviced over 1,000 appointments and has made numerous positive impacts on their quality of lives throughout Livingston County.
“I’ve been here a long time,” continued Yencer. “I really enjoy the people that I work with and the work environment. I think that the facility speaks for itself. It’s beautiful here and we take a lot of pride in what we do.”
