Our Mission and Vision


Vision and Mission

Brightmoor Nurisng Center's mission is to be the community facility of choice; A SALISBURY NURSING HOME, providing resident-centered and family services with genuine compassion and highest quality.

Our primary mission is to provide the highest level of resident care possible with regard for individual resident's specific medical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs. This mission can only be accomplished through personal dedication of each staff member combined with a sympathetic understanding of the resident's needs, choices, and desires.

The facility by design enhances the quality of life for each person residing at Brightmoor Nursing Center. For the family, a quiet satisfaction and an inner feeling of peace that comes from knowing that your loved one is receiving the very best care possible by a kind and caring staff.

Brightmoor Nursing Center is an extended care facility offering rest home and nursing care in a spirit of compassion. Brightmoor Nursing Center began operation in December, 1990 when Mr. G. Allen Fritts and Mrs. Linda J. Howard purchased the facility from the former owners. Mrs. Howard became sole owner in September of 1997 and continues to follow the progress of Brightmoor Nursing Center to assure that the facility delivers only quality care to its residents.

We believe caring about people is as important as caring for them. Our residents have worked all of their lives for the welfare of their families and their countrymen. Now we are morally obligated to make life more comfortable for them. The services we offer our residents are flexible, and can be adjusted to meet the individual needs of each person living here. Brightmoor Nursing Center is a place where all residents are given individual attention, and where every effort is made to keep them healthy happy and in harmony with their Maker.


Home-Like Environment

Brightmoor Nursing Center is a 60 certified bed long term care nursing facility. It sits on 5 acres of naturally wooded land and is only 2 miles away from the nearest hospital. With 20,000 square feet under its roof, it houses a dining room, interior courtyard, exterior gardens, therapy rooms, beauty shop, a living room with a fireplace.

It is designed around the resident's needs and with those needs as the focal point of all interior and exterior design. The goal is to provide healthcare in a home-like environment with all rooms having a picture book landscape view from the window. Gardens in both interior courtyards and around the facility provide natural beauty for the residents to enjoy. Patios, porches, and loggias entice the resident to enjoy the fresh air and the country-like setting.
