Autumn Care of Shallotte is a 140-bed nursing and rehab facility, located in downtown Shallotte, on the coast of North Carolina. We opened our doors in 1989, and have been proudly serving our local community and the surrounding residents of Brunswick County, New Hanover, Columbus and Horry County, SC. Terri Cole, Administrator, has been leading the facility since its opeining and is attributed with the stable environment we can offer our residents. We are certified for Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement and are contracted for Hospice services. We accept both short-term and long-term residents.
The population of our coastline is growing with many new housing developments that are attracting people who are not only moving their families here, but also moving parents with them. We are easily accessible from Hwy. 17, about half way between Wilmington, NC to our north and Myrtle Beach, SC. Our central location is just minutes from Holden Beach, Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach.
In addition to providing 24-hour nursing care, we also offer Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy services. Therapy services are offered to residents after an acute illness, accident or surgery or who have experienced a decline in their functional capabilities. All services are provided under the close supervision of our Medical Director, George L. Saunders, MD.
The “Palms” wing is a unit designated for residents with Alzheimer's and related memory loss, providing compassionate care in a safe and secure environment. One of its most pleasant features is a lovely landscaped enclosed patio, with an arbor for shade, swings, rockers and fountain. Family members and staff enjoy this peaceful setting.
Another of our “attractions” is the loving staff we employ. In addition to providing 24-hour nursing care, our staff is able and willing to provide love and support to our residents, and their families. Once admitted to Autumn Care, our residents and their families become part of our Autumn “family”, and our staff strives to be the best surrogate possible. In touring our facility, many comments are offered about the “smiling” faces and warm attitudes of our staff as they are observed completing their routine tasks.
We invite you to tour our facility anytime.
