Taking care to give the best care.

At Crossroads Care Center of Crystal River we provide a high standard of care. Our skilled nursing care services are coordinated with the 17 Theda Care physicians who prescribe specialized treatment plans tailored to the needs of each of our residents. Short term nursing, or long-term care, helps to facilitate occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy that promotes effective rehabilitation for you or your loved one. We also specialize in IV therapy and wound care. These and our short term nursing services are also provided on an out-patient basis.

As a member of the American Health Care Association, we accept only the highest standards of care and continually challenge ourselves to provide therapy and skilled nursing care that is second to none. For instance, our skilled nursing care is provided around the clock every day and night of the year. And many in our staff have served with us for more than 10 years. Our affiliations include a senior center and hospital within a mile of our nursing home. Those affiliations include Affinity Medical Group and Theda Care and Ministry.

Amenities and Activities

To say that Crossroads Care Center of Crystal River is ideally located is an understatement. Less than a mile from the expressway and a short drive to the Waupaca Municipal Airport, the nursing home shares the neighborhood with the Apple Tree Lane Bed and Breakfast. Across the street is a bar & grill where residents often go to eat and socialize. We also have a private patio and garden area where you, or your loved one, can entertain guests or just relax and take in nature and the fresh air.

For those days when the weather is less cooperative, or you or your loved one is inclined to stay indoors, Crossroads Care Center of Crystal River offers cable television, Wi-Fi and computers. A resident lounge area also offers opportunities for visiting with friends and loved ones, or just enjoying a good book. Residents can even visit our on-site beauty salon and stylist service.

Our Activities Director maintains a full schedule of opportunities for social interaction and fun. This includes games, music, community outings and celebrations, such as birthdays.

Our dietician works with a skilled kitchen staff to provide delicious and nutritious meals that are designed to fit each resident’s particular nutritional needs.
