A Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
Located in a quiet, attractive, residential area, The Laurels of DeKalb is within walking distance of churches and a scenic park. The building features a secured, covered patio and cozy lounge areas that provide the perfect setting for either quiet time or social activities.
At The Laurels of DeKalb we provide quality services to both short-term and long-term guests. Our motto, Sooner, Safer, Stronger, signifies our goal for the way each of our short-term rehab guests transitions from hospital to home. We also offer home-based therapy after discharge.
We provide a complete range of services for patients that are unable to return home after a hospitalization. Our programs provide a safe transition from hospital to home with a depth of services that typically can not be provided through home health care or by family members.Learn More
Extended and long-term care stays are appropriate for individuals that require greater levels of care and support than can be provided at home or within an independent living setting. Our guests typically need assistance with their daily activities due to physical and/or cognitive limitations.Learn More

The staff and nurses are very helpful and professional. My father-in-law needed placed in a nursing home about the same time COVID hit. They went above and beyond in helping us through the process. They continually keep us informed and are polite when we call to check on him. I would highly recommend The Laurels of DeKalb.
I had a recent stay at this facility and everyone from housekeeping to maintenance to dietary to laundry to rehab services to complimentary transportation and finally to nursing services, was polite. They knew their responsibilities and were always responsive to resident needs. At first it was difficult being the patient as opposed to the caregiver, but I soon began to love the staff. Every nursing person worked for the comfort of the resident, but I felt the most "looked after" by Teresa, RN on day shift and Lisa, RN on night shift. They just inspired competency and comfort by their knowledge and calm personalities.
At such a difficult time as transitioning a parent into a long term care facility, the staff at Laurels has been outstanding with their care for my mother. Feeling overwhelmed with questions, Brooke was there to provide answers and put me at ease. The nursing staff, aides and maintenance have all worked together to get my Mom settled. I am beyond pleased with her care, from daily phone calls talking with my mom, to her delight in the maintenance setting up her TV. Thank you to the entire staff of The Laurels of Dekalb for the care of my mother. Can't wait for Covid Restriction to be lifted and I can visit my Mom in person.
