RWC Health Services Offers Seamless Move from One Level of Care to Next

One of the biggest benefits of moving to our Continuing Care Retirement Community is that everything you need to stay active, healthy and on top of your health is conveniently available right on our campus.

At RWC, we offer a variety of health services including:

Our residents receive excellent health care
  • RWC’s Resident Clinic – registered and licensed practical nurses and certified nursing assistants are on hand to treat residents for minor ailments and injuries.
  • Westbury Health Center – an onsite facility equipped and staffed to care for residents who are unable to care for themselves at home but who do not require hospitalization.
  • Westbury Court (Assisted Living) – compassionate, licensed care that can serve up to 70 residents who seek assistance without the need for full nursing home care.
  • Birdsong House-Memory Care – an onsite facility for residents who need assistance with the needs of dailyliving and enhanced supervision and activities intended to stimulate memory and potentially slow the progression of dementia.
  • Health Services for General Community – individuals from the wider community may be provided access to our premium levels of care if we have available capacity after meeting the needs of our contracted residents. Community admissions are private pay. We offer Medicare and Medicaid services in our health center level of care.
  • Support Services – residents and community members can benefit from additional services that include our comprehensive wellness program, support groups and at-home care.
  • Long-Term Care Services statistics show somewhere between 50-70% of people over the age of 65 will require fairly significant long-term care services at some point in their life.
