Our Exceptional Nursing Services

When you choose Dove Healthcare, you will appreciate access to our wide range of capabilities and our experienced nursing team.

Our nurses truly get to know you and ensure your well-being with professional care in prevention, rehabilitation, education, and personal support. They collaborate with our therapy, nutritional services, recreation, and social services departments to provide you with care tailored to your needs, abilities, and preferences. Furthermore, our nurses communicate with medical providers 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and obtain orders for labs, diagnostic imaging, and follow-ups which often prevent ER visits and potentially even costly hospital admissions. As your needs change, we are here to help you in a dignified and compassionate manner.

Each nursing home is unique, so be sure to contact us and learn about the capabilities available at the Dove Healthcare location in which you are interested for you or your loved one. We're here to support you every step of the way.

Connie Ducommun

I was at Dove Healthcare - Rice lake for seven weeks for rehabilitation. When I first arrived, I wasn't able to walk or use my right hand. Through physical and occupational therapy, I now have use of my right hand and can walk with a walker. I cannot say enough about the employees and the care I received. They carried me in and now I am walking out!

Mavis Rathjen

You don't realize how great of a place this is until you get to stay here. Everyone is so thoughtful and pleasant. I am sad to leave but so excited to get back home and see my dog Fanny! I am glad to know you are here in case I need you again in the future. Thank you all!

Connie Perrin

Everyone was so friendly, know what they are doing, and work so hard. The food was good, and the care was excellent. The therapy team did a great job getting me well and strong enough to go home. Everyone made my stay enjoyable, and it went really fast. Please tell all of the employees how much I appreciate all they did and how much I'm going to miss them.

Connie Perrin, May 2020

Lois Williams

After being in the hospital, all I wanted to do was go home. But now, if I had to be anywhere recuperating away from home, this is the place I want to be! Everyone has been so kind, thoughtful, and pleasant. I can honestly say I have not had one bad experience my entire stay at Dove Healthcare - South Eau Claire, and I've really enjoyed my time here!

Cheryl Pokrzywinski

A heartfelt thank you to all of you. My needs were met above and beyond my expectations. I had excellent nursing staff and CNAs. When the call light went on, someone was available to help. I received quality attention from the aides; they were knowledgeable and caring. I have been so blessed spending my healing time at Dove Healthcare - Wissota Health & Regional Vent Center.

Harvey

The team at Dove Healthcare - Bloomer helped me gain my independence back. They met my needs both mentally and physically. I went from being non-mobile and needing a hoyer lift to now walking over 100 feet with a walker, getting up by myself, and going home.

Harvey, August 2021
