WELCOME TO AUSTIN RETIREMENT & NURSING CENTER
“The Best Place to Give Care and the Best Place to Get Care.”
In addition to our recent remodeling project, we have created a special Memory Care Community for those who require specialized memory care and a higher level of supervision. Our separate memory care unit is designed to provide a safe, structured environment with set routines to lower stress for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
TESTIMONIALS & REVIEWS
See What Family Members Have to Say About Austin RNC
“Choosing a nursing home for a loved one is one of the hardest thing you can do. I looked at the nursing home ratings on line. then visited a dozen or so retirement facilities, RNC stood out. Retirement Nursing Center was one of the only ones I would consider. Mom flourished there for a good while. Illness overtook her almost 4 years after she arrived, specialist predicted she might last a month. RNC has lots of things to do every day. They have some of the same issues others do with short staff, but they try hard. They are very open to requests and suggestions and try to be as accommodating as possible. Mom was as happy as she could be, all things considered. They were very supportive and there were many tears from the staff when she passed.”
“After visiting RNC today I just had to post this beautiful lobby. I would consider this skilled nursing facility for my parents. The staff that I have met are very friendly and knowledgeable about the business.
Check it out!”

HOSPICE & PALLIATIVE CARE
Palliative care is a resource for anyone living with a serious illness, such as heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cancer, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, and many others. Palliative care can be helpful at any stage of illness and is best provided from the point of diagnosis. Palliative care can be provided along with curative treatment and does not depend on prognosis.
ALZHEIMER'S & DEMENTIA CARE
Our memory care community is designed to provide a safe, structured environment with set routines to lower stress for patients with Alzheimer’s or dementia. All our memory care activities are designed to improve cognitive function and engage residents at different stages of the disease.
- Doctors appointments
All necessary transportation is included —there is no extra charge for these services.
The experience of COVID-19 has now put digital medicine front and center. Telemedicine can eliminate many potential vectors for infection while allowing residents to get the care that they need.
The social worker helps new residents make the transition from a previous living environment while meeting their social/emotional comfort needs. Once the resident is
established, the social worker assures the resident’s continuing needs are met and that the person is given the opportunity to participate in planning for continued care in the facility, transfer, or discharge back into the community.
