Our Facilities are fully licensed by the Mississippi Department of Health, Division of Health Facilities Licensure and Certification for participation in the Medicaid program. Insurance, private pay, and Medicaid are accepted for payment of services.

Philosophy of Care

Each of our facilities provides an interdisciplinary approach to each residentís care that is specific to the individual and seeks to maintain the individualís highest level of physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being. RPW and JTC are committed to providing care that enhances the dignity and maintains the independence of those entrusted to our care.

Every Day Activities

Residents of RPW and JTC enjoy activities and socializing in the large day hall or relaxing in the quiet solitude of the library. There is a glassed-in sunroom acts as the activity area for arts and crafts as well as exercise classes. And for those who enjoy the outdoors, our enclosed yard provides covered and non-covered patio areas in addition to a walking path. A variety of activities are available to our residents; some of which include bingo, Wii, board games and trips outside the facility to local theaters, restaurants, and community events.
