Established in 1936 by Carrie Elligson Gietner, the Gietner Home has been a loving provider of care and a welcoming residence for the elderly for over 80 years. Mrs. Gietner’s goal of providing, not a nursing home, but a “wonderful place to enjoy the Golden Years to the fullest,” is a mantra we maintain today. On the beautiful bluffs of the Mississippi River, residents and visitors never tire of the priceless view.
Today the Gietner Home is a Skilled Nursing Facility that provides 24 hour care.
Residents here can enjoy all of the ammenities of home with the comfort of knowing there is a dedicated staff focused on their health and well being. Our residents live comfortably in private rooms with friendly and diverse neighbors to spend time with.
The home was originally built at the turn of the 20th century as a men’s rowing club. Then, in the 1930’s, Carrie Elligson Gietner received permission from the city to use the building as a ladies boarding home. Since then, the Facility has transitioned to provide skilled nursing care to men and women, but the spirit of the services has not changed. We really do have a lively and bustling community.
If you are looking for a home or are just curious what options you have, we welcome you to come in and meet with us. Let us know what we can do to make this the perfect home for you.

The Gietner Skilled Care and Rehabilitation center has 120 skilled care beds. We offer around the clock medical care and monitoring. Most of our rooms are private. What this means is that even if you have Medicaid or Medicare, you can have your own private room. We are Medicaid/ Medicare certified and also accept private pay and hospice residents.

We have the ability to accommodate IV patients, patients with special dietary needs (such as gastric tube feeding), dialysis patients (outsourced), Chemo Therapy (outsourced), suctioning, any medication (in house emergency pharmacy and outsourced pharmacy services), behavior symptoms, dementia, incontinence, and patients who use catheters. We provide routine doctors visits, in house podiatry, optimology, and dental care. All of our residents’ doctors remain on 24 hour call.

Each of our residents get regular one-on-ones with a licenced social worker. The resident will also have access to psychcological and psychiatric services routinly. We also offer individual counseling and therapy through Deer Oaks. A representative from Missouri’s VOYCE program visits the facility weekly to meet with residents.

We offer physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy if Medicare and private insurance guidlines are met. We have an in house nursing restorative program. Our therapists have been with us for twenty years and focus on helping every resident meet their full potential.

We can assist residents to select the right hospice service for them. For further information about hospice for your self or a loved one, please leave your information here
