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 are leaders in longer-term skilled nursing care, as well. We consider our extended-stay guests part of the Laurel family, and we keep them engaged to the fullest with events, activities, and birthday and holiday celebrations that often include their families. Above all that, we consider them our cherished friends.
