Our community offers family-style dining, internet access, beauty salons/barbers and outdoor spaces. Residents also have access to our rehabilitation gym and social and cultural activities.

Jesse Helms Nursing Center was named one of the Best Nursing Homes by U.S. News & World Report.

Best Nursing Homes 2020-21

U.S. News & World Report evaluates nearly 16,000 skilled nursing facilities (nursing homes) across the United States, annually. The organization creates a calculation that rates the best skilled nursing facilities at 4.5 to 5 stars. This rating is based on each facility’s performance over time, calculating key quality care measurements, in conjunction with therapy hours and nursing staff to patient ratios. This time-lapsed measurement makes such a designation for skilled nursing facilities difficult to achieve. Only 26 facilities in the state of North Carolina earned such a designation. North Carolina currently has 425 skilled nursing facilities.


Short-term Nursing and Rehabilitation Services:
After hospitalization, skilled nursing and rehabilitation programs at Jesse Helms Nursing Center can help residents achieve their maximum functional capacity and return to their homes and communities in the shortest time possible.

Residents may receive physical, occupational and speech therapy from compassionate, skilled therapists. Therapists are part of a comprehensive care team that includes physicians, nurses, social workers, nutritionists and others who work with the resident and family members to develop an individualized plan of care and goals for each patient.

Long-term Care Services:
Our long-term care services are designed for individuals who can no longer be cared for at home or in an assisted-living facility. Services may include:

  • Healthcare services
  • Social and cultural activities
  • Nursing and restorative care
  • Case management

End-of-Life Services:
End-of-life care includes medical, emotional, spiritual and personal support.  We believe residents needing end-of-life care should be treated with dignity, respect and compassion, and we deliver care that is focused on the resident’s and family’s wishes.


Our state-of-the-art 24/7 care and warm, healing environment, offer just the right setting for residents to lead a healthier life. Residents also have access to various activities, as well as dental, financial, housekeeping, pain and sleep services.
