Aromatherapy. Reflexology. Massage therapy. Sounds more like a spa day than a nursing home, right? Wrong. The Guttenberg Care Center, with support from owner ABCM Corporation, has embarked on a journey to incorporate holistic health into the many options available to residents. Music and art therapy, tai chi, meditation, and locally grown foods are among the many facets of the care center’s holistic health plan.

“Holistic Health is the next logical approach for us in expanding the fundamentals of Person Directed Care. It is our responsibility to enrich resident’s lives while managing their medical care,” said marketing coordinator Jane Staebler. A stakeholder group formed last year consulted with the Maharishi University in Fairfield, Luther College in Decorah, and Mercy Hospital in Cedar Rapids. “We’ve learned through visiting some of these places that although it’s becoming more common, holistic health is still very foreign in the nursing home community,” Staebler told The Press.
