For seniors in Bellingham and surrounding communities who need intensive and personalized medical care for short periods, Avamere Bellingham Health Care and Rehabilitation is an excellent choice. Our trained skilled nursing staff strives for a high-level of personal care, perfect for seniors who require 24-hour assistance. Many patient stays are less than three months and most frequently consist of seniors who come directly from the hospital to recover from surgery or severe illness.
Our skilled nursing staff, comprised of registered and practical nurses, as well as occupational, speech, and physical therapists, help restore seniors’ lives after physical trauma, such as a stroke, heart attack, broken hip, or knee replacement. Our skilled nursing team, under the direction of the senior's physician, is ready to help with healing, rehabilitation, and a smooth transition back into a normal and healthy life.
Therapy, or rehabilitation, will help you get your life back on track. If you’ve lost the ability to do even the simplest of tasks, our skilled physical, occupational, and speech therapy team in Bellingham, Washington can help you gain back your independence.

- Physical Therapy – Work toward improving balance, strength, mobility, and overall fitness.

Avamere Bellingham Health Care and Rehabilitation takes pride in offering long-term care services to residents of Bellingham and the surrounding communities. Our friendly and compassionate long-term care staff, composed of registered, vocational, and practical nurses and aides, provide 24-hour care services to seniors who are no longer able to care for themselves because of physical, emotional, or cognitive conditions.
We promote a life-filled atmosphere that mirrors the home life many left behind. Musicians volunteer their talents, school children and pets often visit, and plants fill outdoor courtyards and indoor areas with life.
Long-term care serves an important role in the continuum of care for seniors. Services can include personal care, specialized diets, medication management, restorative therapy, social services, spiritual services, and individual and group activities. These long-term care services are provided through an individualized care plan approved by the seniors’ physicians.
Avamere Bellingham Health Care and Rehabilitation is dedicated to supporting the senior healthcare needs of the surrounding community. Families providing care for loved ones with mental health issues, such as dementia or Alzheimer’s, have continuously chosen us to care for loved ones on a short-term basis. Our senior respite care services are specially tailored to give families a well-deserved break from providing the compassionate daily care their loved one requires.
Avamere Bellingham Health Care and Rehabilitation is proud to provide short-term respite stays at a nightly fee. This is ideal for family caregivers who may need a few days or weeks off. We will work closely with your loved one’s primary care physician to help continue the care they deserve.
