What Makes Citizens Special?
Founded in 1976 by the Board of County Commissioners as a model of human caring for the residents of Frederick County, Citizens Care and Rehabilitation Center has consistently exceeded its goals related to resident care and community outreach.
Our mission has grown over the years to include not only long-term care, but short-term rehabilitation as well. We continue to provide excellent care, every time!
The Board of County Commissioners, Citizens/Montevue Board of Trustees, and County Government leaders have supported our efforts by approving the construction of our new, state-of-the-art facility for both Citizens (skilled nursing and rehabilitation) and Montevue Assisted Living.
To meet the changing needs of our residents, Citizens offers the following services on a daily basis in our existing building:
Skilled Nursing Care 24-hours a day, every day.
Skilled Rehabilitation Care, whether for a few days, a few weeks, or during custodial care.
Wound care, including that for diabetic ulcers, pressure wounds, and those wounds resulting from accidents or illnesses.
Nutritious meals and snacks throughout the day, on a rotating schedule. Resident Food Committee meets monthly to choose festive celebratory meals and holiday celebrations.
Activities for all ability levels, including praise & worship, bingo, arts & crafts, movies/music themed events, and even "The Gathering," a special time & place for residents with specific cognitive needs to socialize and have lunch together.
