Owned & operated by seasoned compassionate nurses, Peggy’s Place was created to honor the memory of a loving lifelong caregiver named Peggy Meiners-Phelps. Peggy dedicated her life to serving others with a happy heart. She is the inspiration and the foundation of how our center operates and why we chose to incorporate the medical model with the social model in our program which consists of the following:
We are equipped to serve aging adults, adults with chronic diseases, and those with disabilities. We are able to care for any adult requiring nursing care or those who need assistance with their activities of daily living. We also are able to serve those with neurological disorders – stroke, spinal cord/head injuries, chronic disease states, and mental illness. Some examples include:
We like to call it an Adult Life Enrichment Center because we provide a holistic medical & social model care approach to our clients, who we like to call “our friends”.

Julie relates to people here. She feels she is part of something here. She brings her art work home with her and wins bingo prizes home and is very proud of them.
The staff at Peggy's Place is immensely supportive and helpful. Christine is always available to talk through issues and challenges.
Peggy's Place helps him even when he is not here. Allows him to focus more on his girls when he is with them. He also has learned more about dealing with his challenges.
Sheri spent most of her time in front of the computer and TV. She was non-social and very sad. Going to Peggy's Place made a big difference.
We had an aide who would come and take him out, but not the same as coming here. His family is so happy for him, because he is so happy.
Life has changed a lot since Michael has been coming here. Do not worry about him when I go to work. He is more social at home and has a routine now. Staff goes above and beyond and calls me when they are concerned and vice versa.
