Dedicated care for special needs, from birth through early adulthood

We're ready for You

From our highly skilled staff to our fully outfitted physical therapy building, Pope’s Place is prepared to meet your families needs. We offer pediatric and young adult respite, transitional, and residential support – all in a nurturing, home-like setting. 

Eagles House

Dedicated for the Fraternal Order of Eagles that helped fund and build it, our Eagles House offers pediatric residential, transitional, and respite care. Eagles House is a 24-hour nursing facility for medically complex and fragile children with special health care needs under the age of 18. Eagles House opened in 2017 after we outgrew our previous building. Its updated facilities are ready to welcome your children, where they will receive the utmost love and special care.

Vivian's House

When children began aging out of our pediatric program, we expanded to grow with them. Vivian’s House is a young adult family home that offers transitional, respite, and residential care. Vivian’s House is for young adults over the age of 18 who still need a high level of nursing care, but no longer need acute hospitalization. Our residents are welcome to continue their educational, recreational, and cultural activities while they receive individualized care all in a homelike setting.

Physical Therapy Center

In October 2020, our Physical Therapy Center was completed. The goal of Pope’s Place Physical Therapy Center is to improve the quality of life for our residents. Our on staff Physical Therapist designs individualized care plans to meet the specific needs of each resident. Every measure is taken to guarantee the safety of our residents. We understand that every resident’s needs are different and we tailor their physical therapy to fit their unique needs.

Family Support Center

Eagles Nest Family Support Room was established in early March 2020. Eagles Nest is a full bedroom unit and shower with access to a full kitchen. Pope’s Place saw the struggle in families traveling from out of town to visit their loved ones residing here at Pope’s Place and elected to help alleviate that struggle. We understand that traveling cost add up quickly, from finding a place to stay, to meal expenses to gasoline prices. This became a financial burden to many families; in some cases it became almost impossible to make the trip to visit their loved ones. Pope’s Place now offers these families an overnight place to stay at no cost to them, relieving some of financial stress.
