Juniper Village at Lamar is a skilled nursing facility and home to 50 residents on average. Juniper is dedicated to providing the finest quality personal services and exceptional care to foster healthy and independent lives for its residents.  Encouraging and respecting each person’s choices, the staff at Juniper Village delivers care that nurtures the spirit of life. Newly renovated, Juniper Village has a friendly, personal atmosphere.  The community is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood close to the senior center and downtown shops.
At Juniper, we believe the wrinkled hands and faces of the aged are not marks of lost youth; they are marks of a life journey during which wisdom and knowledge have been and continue to be gained. At Juniper, maximizing independence and emotional well-being is as important as meeting health and medical needs. We seek to offer long term care communities where, like the evergreen Juniper, our elderly family members and friends with chronic illness can be alive in all seasons of life.
Juniper Village at Lamar delivers a wide range of care and services, from respite care to short-term rehabilitation to skilled care and long-term residency. What sets us apart is our individualized approach to care; we get to know you, your unique needs and situation, and recommend a program of care that provides for the quality of life you seek.
Short-Term Rehabilitative Care: The Bridge to Home program is a joint effort between Juniper Village at Lamar and Genesis Rehab Services.  The program provides individuals with clinical expertise in an environment that ensures a smooth transition from acute hospital stay to rehabilitation and finally to return to home and community.
The Bridge to Home program is a specially designated area at Juniper Village that includes a newly renovated therapy center with state of the art equipment. Also newly renovated for Bridge to Home clients, Juniper Village offers a group of separate, handicap accessible private and semi-private accommodations with its own dining and living areas for program participants. This program offers:
• Physical therapy to restore normal movement and function, improve strength and balance, and regain mobility and coordination.
• Occupational therapy to increase independence in all activities of daily life, improve perception, reduce swelling and pain, and control spasticity.
• Speech therapy to improve communication skills, treat language impairments and cognitive disorders, evaluate and treat hearing loss, and assess and treat swallowing difficulties.
Long Term Care: Our focus for our long-term residents is on extending quality of life and providing care and service tailor made to the individual. Of course Long-term residency offers also access on an as needed basis to the above services. This includes:
• Development of an individualized service plan based on physician recommendations, any need for assistance with activities of daily life, our application for residency, and My Life Story (Juniper’s proprietary profile)
