Long Term Care Services

9.13.2023 update:

I hope all is well with everyone this week, I have two things to cover in today’s update.
First, I wanted to let everyone know that we have had to go into COVID outbreak as Tuesday September 12th . No residents currently have COVID but it has shown up in one of the staff members who comes into LTC so we will implement outbreak procedures to try and reduce the risk of potential exposures. We will begin regular testing of all residents and staff. This will happen on Wednesday, Friday and next Monday. If we have no additional positive cases we will not test further. If we do identify any cases we will continue with testing twice a week until we have no new cases for 14 days.
We also do have a positive flu case amongst the residents so we are taking extra precautions regarding that as well. Moral of the story is, “the season” of sickness is upon us so we just want to remind everyone of basic infection prevention strategies that are intended to reduce the spread of illness.
• Do not visit if you are not feeling well.
• Wash your hands with soap and water before and after visiting with residents.
• Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after touching common, high touch areas.
• If you have been around anyone who has tested positive for COVID or has had COVID symptoms in the past 10 days, please don’t visit.
• Cover your mouth when coughing and wash your hand immediately after. If you are coughing, please don’t visit.

Secondly, I wanted to give a quick update on the renovation project. We are making great progress with window installation and plan on that project ending early. As it stands right now we anticipate all windows will be installed by end of the day Wednesday. They are a really nice upgrade and we are very pleased with the outcome. Permanent blinds will be arriving later but for now we are utilizing temporary window coverings for privacy.
We have had a slight delay in the painting due to the window installation project and will push off the moves originally planned for this weekend until early next week. As we get final details regarding this we will update those who will be impacted. We will do our best to give 2 days’ notice prior to a move but do appreciate your understanding if we need to change dates to accommodate resident needs and construction logistics.
The residents are very excited about the improvements that are happening in LTC and remain in good spirits. We have such a great family here at FCMC and are grateful for everyone’s support and encouragement. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to give me a call.

Here's what some of our residents are saying about us...

Everybody is nice here, the food is good, the place is clean and that is important to me...the nurses are kind. I'm never bored because they are always taking us someplace and there is always something to do." - Mary S.

"By living here, I don't have a very hard life; it's easy and I'm thankful that I'm here. The people here have been great to me." - Doris P.

The FCMC Story

Just as Dr. MacKinlay saw Fulton County's need for a hospital to be built in the 1950s, a similar need arose to take care of the aged population in the early 1970s. Just before Christmas in 1976 FCMC opened its extended care wing of the hospital. Nineteen residents made FCMC their home permanently. Nine of the 19 residents came from the former Decker Nursing Home.

One year later, FCMC opened its intermediate care unit. FCMC could now offer three levels of care: acute care, intermediate care, and skilled care. This would eventually make up the 57 beds that FCMC maintained until 2007 when they moved to their new facility and added an additional 10 beds for individuals needing long-term care.

Today, FCMC Long Term Care is very much a vital part of the organization. Health care has dramatically changed since 1970 when the LTC unit was built; however, the quality of care, coupled with the family-like atmosphere, has remained unchanged.


We look forward to welcoming you to our family. We welcome Medicare, Medicaid, and Private insurance.
