We’re not satisfied with being “just another nursing home."  We have recently renewed our membership on The Eden Alternative® Registry, reaffirming our commitment to improving the quality of care and quality of life for the people who live and work here.  We are committed to rid our home of the Three Plagues: loneliness, helplessness and boredom.  Our Certified Eden Associates continue to educate those connected with our organization about person-centered care, based on the Ten Principles of The Eden Alternative.  Utilizing the Healthcare Academy, we have created in-house, continuing education programs to ensure that our staff is provided industry leading, long-term care training.  Key staff also regularly attend industry conferences and training outside of our home.  The Bent County HealthCare Center is continuing its efforts to lead the way in caring for our elders.  We remain proactive in our approach to long-term and skilled-nursing care.  Our journey is unique and never-ending.




We believe that aging should be a continued stage of development and growth, rather than a period of decline. We have chosen to become a part of the Eden Alternative Registry because it honors our efforts to undertake the hard work of transforming institutional practices into ones that create a warm, loving home using the Principles and Practices of the Eden Alternative.  As we deepen our understanding of the Principles and Practices of the Eden Alternative, our elders are being honored, respected and are growing as individuals, thus transforming how care is provided for the 56 loved ones who accept support from the Bent County HealthCare Center.


 The Eden Registry connects us to other eldercare professionals and providers.  This wonderful network enables us to continue growing by seeking out new ideas and helping our peers.  We invite you to come in and see all the wonderful things happening here.
