Life Care Center of Palm Bay
Off the shores of the Atlantic Ocean lies Life Care Center of Palm Bay, a newly built nursing home facility in an eloquent environment. The elderly care facility offers easy access to area attractions such as Palm Bay West Regional Shopping Center, and is just minutes from Palm Bay Community Hospital.
With beautifully landscaped interior courtyards, lavish dining and sitting areas, and compassionate staff, Life Care is truly a place to call home. Some services include inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation therapy along with an Alzheimer’s care unit.

Difficult to believe that so much activity occurs at this Skilled Nursing Facility.
Life Care Center of Palm Bay has earned a reputation as the leader in both long term nursing care and post-acute care. Customer service is our primary focus. Our residents, both long term and short term rehabilitation therapy, are respected, treated with dignity and are our loved guests. In an atmosphere of wellness and a spa-style environment, including embossed spa robes and towels, our residents receive heart-felt nursing care and rehabilitation services.
Conveniently located next door to Palm Bay Community Hospital and Melbourne Internal Medicine Associates, Life Care Center of Palm Bay provides award winning post-acute nursing as well as physical, occupational and speech therapies. Rehabilitation is available on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. Long term care beds are offered based upon availability to include private rooms and suites.
"We often hear that our facility is more of a resort than a Skilled Nursing Facility," said Nancy McGoldrick, Executive Director, recipient of the Life Care Centers of America's President's Award.
In addition to the resort ambience, our facility offers a gourmet coffee service, ice cream parlor, gift shop and concierge nursing assistant services. Our facility has been recognized in our community for being the leader in care and service based upon individual's personal experience in our facility.
Life Care Center of Palm Bay is an award winning facility with a large group of associates who joined our facility upon opening. Our associates participate in our monthly Whatever It Takes and Then Some program. A program established by Life Care Centers of America to recognize and award associates for the outstanding care provided to our residents.
Residents can enjoy gathering with friends in our ice cream parlor/bistro, library with internet access and/or catch their favorite television show in our living room on our large screen television.
