Opened in 1973, ArchCare at Ferncliff Nursing Home is located on 36 beautiful acres of the former Astor family estate just outside the historic village of Rhinebeck. Our goal is to provide the best possible experience through holistic care that addresses not only the residents' physical needs, but their social, psychological, emotional and spiritual needs as well.

The Restorative Care Unit (RCU) is equipped with telemedicine technology, which allows multiple parties to be involved in the real-time care of a patient via electronic communication, essentially doctoring from a distance.

The RCU RN (Restorative Care Unit Registered Nurse) provides monitoring and communication functions by utilizing technology to assist with the assessment and evaluation of the residents in their care in a post-acute environment. The technology interpreted by the RCU RN includes telemetry monitoring, vital sign monitoring, non-invasive hemodynamic monitoring and as indicated, diagnostic tests such as laboratory and electrocardiogram (EKG). The RCU RN works collaboratively with interdisciplinary team members to assist residents in reaching their goals, and uses best practice nursing standards in all aspects of care planning, monitoring and delivery.
