Wexford House offers you and your loved ones short- or long-term rehabilitation, skilled-nursing, respite and medical care in a comfortable, home-like environment.

Plus we provide an onsite physician or nurse practitioner seven days a week, year-round, and offer a quality of life program led by our certified activities director.
