BASIC SUPPORTIVE SERVICES
Our licensed, experienced nurses are on duty 24-hours a day to provide direct nursing care when needed. RN coverage at Pioneer Memorial Care Center exceeds the regular coverage at other organizations as there is RN coverage during evening shifts.
A Physician is on call 24-hours a day. Our Medical Director is contracted through Essentia Health of Fosston, MN. Each resident is given a monthly visit to assess health needs and Pioneer Memorial Care Center also works closely with the Senior Behavior Health Unit in Bemidji, MN for Psychiatric evaluations on a monthly basis if deemed necessary. It is the residents' and familys' choice to elect their Primary Physician and we will gladly assist in scheduling visits.

The facility features four community dining areas where three meals are served daily. The dining rooms are designed as if you were at a restaurant to promote social interaction among residents, families, and friends. Between meals, residents can enjoy a variety of beverages and snacks throughout the day. Special meals and treats are also incorporated through our activity program throughout the week.

Rehabilitation and Restorative Services
We are contracted with Altru Health System's Outreach Therapies for occupational, physical, and speech therapy services. All therapy services are performed at the Care Center while inpatient and subsequent to a transition home or to assisted living, outpatient services can be performed by the same therapists at the attached Altru Clinic of Erskine. Goals are established based on multidisciplinary evaluations completed at the Care Center with input by physcians, nursing staff and family members, as well as the resident. Treatment focuses on improving or attaining independence in functional abilities within Pioneer Memorial Care Center and applying those for a possible return home or to another supported living facility.
We provide a clean, safe, and comfortable environment with our daily housekeeping services provided on all wings. Personal laundry services are provided on the individual communities to ensure the best care for the residents' clothing and bedding. Dry cleaning services are also available via request.
