Welcome To Houghton

Absolut Care of Houghton is a one hundred (100) bed facility located in the hills of Allegany County, in the quaint Village of Houghton. Our facility specializes in short-term rehabilitation and long-term skilled nursing care, provided in a family oriented environment.

Our Physical and Occupational Therapists are full-time employees of Absolut Care of Houghton. They are fully invested in the successful treatment and rehabilitation of our residents. Our “Care Partnership Program” aligns our Rehab staff closely with a resident’s personal physician/surgeon, so that the prescribed protocols may be implemented and an individualized treatment plan can be developed to meet each resident’s needs. Therapy services are offered 6 days per week, when prescribed, allowing residents the opportunity to progress more rapidly toward their return home.

At Absolut Care of Houghton, we also specialize in caring for residents and their family as the end of life approaches. Our staff are specially trained in palliative care and are sensitive to the difficulties that residents and family members experience during this time. Our residents are part of our family and we never lose sight of the important role they play in their own family.

We’d Love To Hear From You!
