The Rockingham Difference

Recognizing the need for long-term care services can be difficult. We offer a stepping stone approach to care with three different living options: skilled rehabilitation, assisted living, and long-term care. Residents can select the level of care they need and increase their services when necessary–all while staying under the same roof. Established in 1869, Rockingham County Rehabilitation and Nursing Center has a long history of caring for New Hampshire’s older adults.

Budgeting for Senior Living

We believe senior living services and quality care should be affordable for all. There are a variety of options available to help make paying for our senior living services more affordable. The Nursing Center and Rehabilitation accept Medicare A, New Hampshire Medicaid, private funds, and managed care plans. The Ernest P. Barka Assisted Living Community accepts New Hampshire Medicaid and private funds. There’s no one way to pay for senior living. We recommend speaking with one of our admissions specialists to learn more about our availability and pricing.

Community Life

A warm, welcoming environment awaits residents at the Rockingham County senior living community. This home-like atmosphere is the basis of our day-to-day culture where our residents’ comfort and security is our top priority.  Residents can relax in the four-season atrium, enjoy fresh air in the courtyard, take in the views from the solarium, socialize with others at the resident snack bar and gift shop, and more. 

"My home has a beautiful atrium, a courtyard with swings and gazebo, a great activities department, a chapel, and a training school for nurses. Room accommodations are well provided. It has a great rehab and staff."
