In 1965 local business man and civic leader Jim D Moody, along with his wife Mattie, began operation of the Hanceville Nursing Home.From personal experience in seeking care for his elderly mother, Kitty, Jim D knew there was a need. He built this nursing home for her and others requiring skilled care. Until he passed away in 1994, meeting the needs of our residents and their families was Jim D’s daily mission.
While many nursing homes are now the property of large corporations, ours remains a family owned facility dedicated to meeting the needs of our neighbors in Cullman County and northern Alabama. As our neighbors’ needs have grown, so have we. Our facility is now equipped with 208 beds.
When you enter our facility you can always be assured a warm and friendly greeting from staff who take a personal interest in every resident. We have a number of pleasant patios, sunrooms, and courtyards for our residents to enjoy. Rocking chairs, swings and other furniture are provided, along with pergolas and shaded porches. Mattie’s Garden is an area where residents can plant and tend to their own flowers and gardens and even relax by our fishpond.
Much has changed over the years in terms of technology and methods of care, but we still live by the words Jim D told us to keep in mind every day: “Treat each resident as if they were your own Mama or Daddy.”
