Our Island Home

Our Facility
Our Island Home is a 45-bed smoke-free Skilled Nursing Facility dually licensed in Medicaid and Medicare since August 2007 and owned by the Town of Nantucket.

Our rooms are primarily semi-private; however, we do have three Private ‘Special Care’ rooms available. Each has a large window; some with a view of the creeks and Nantucket Harbor where we are located, as well as cable and telephone ready access.

We have a unique tropical fish tank in the living room area, a beautiful out door patio overlooking the harbor with volunteer manicured gardens, and daily pet visits that are always a treat.

Our Population
Our Resident population is diverse in not only heritage but origin of location. You will find men and women whose family roots go deep into Nantucket soil and those who have come to join family after coming to the island to visit and choosing to stay.

Massachusetts Immunizations Information System (MIIS)
Our Island Home participates in data sharing of our residents and employees vaccination histories as required by State Law through MIIS. MIIS is a web-based state-wide system of record keeping for vaccination history of all Massachusetts residents.

Public Health Survey
Our Department of Public Health Survey for the past 3 years is also detailed through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) rating system. If you would like a copy of our recent surveys (we have two annually; one for the overall facility and one for the building safety) please contact us. We are happy to provide and answer any questions you may have.

We are very proud of all the hard work from every level of our staff that allowed this to be possible. A copy of our survey is posted on the bulletin board at Our Island Home.

Nursing Home Compare Rating System
CMS Nursing Home Compare rating system, based on staffing, health inspections / surveys, and quality care measures, provides nursing homes with a 1 to 5 star rating. For details and our current rating, please visit the Medicare website.
