Mellie couldn't bear to be a burden on her married children. But her two sons wouldn’t trust a stranger with her care. Then they discovered Mills Pond. Our facility is now their official family room.
From our dedicated, secured Dementia unit to our hospital-grade medical abilities, Luxor at Mills Pond meets a
crucial need for advanced clinical care. We are celebrated throughout the region for filling this void for both
short-term and long-term residents.
We have the team and the modalities in place to address complex cases and avoid rehospitalization with full confidence. Many of our doctors are affiliated with top hospitals in the region. That includes our lead physician, whose full time job is to serve our long-term residents, 5 days a week, by name, for the full duration of their stay with us.
To us, resident is just another word for family member. So 24-hour care means we know where each resident is, how they are doing, what they need now and what they’ll need next, and how their progress is taking shape.
We believe even long-term care can be expedited. By empowering our clinical team with state-of-the-art care machinery, we equip them to improve prognosis, accelerate recovery, and beat doubt.
Hospitals choose us for what we are capable of, but families trust us for how we do it. Each long-term care resident enjoys a personalized plan of action developed for where they are today—and their best possible future.

At this time, we have instituted a series of proactive policies to safeguard the health and safety of our patients, residents and staff. Their wellbeing is—and always has been—our priority. All of these policies are based on recommendations from the Department of Health (DOH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Visitation has been suspended. In order to curtail the spread of Covid-19 and protect the safety of our residents and staff, entry into our facility is restricted to essential personnel.
We are encouraging virtual visits. Due to the restricted access, we have implemented a process of helping residents reach out to family and loved ones through FaceTime, Skype, WhatsApp and other social media platforms. Health screening. Before entering the facility, everyone, including the staff, is screened for possible symptoms and potential exposure to the disease in order to prevent contact with residents and staff. Risk factors we are screening for include:
• Contact within the prior 14 days with any individual suspected of Covid-19 infection
• Fever or respiratory illness, shortness of breath, sore throat, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
• Travel within the prior 14 days to high-risk areas as defined by the CDC
Proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required. We practice social distancing in our facility, maintaining a six-foot separation between all residents. We are well-stocked with PPE and our staff is instructed in their proper use. Increased cleaning. While our facility has always maintained a policy of regular, thorough cleaning, we have now increased the frequency of disinfecting common areas and surfaces—often multiple times a day.
We understand that some of these policies may be challenging for residents, their families and loved ones, as well as the staff. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this difficult time as we do all we can to protect those in our care. Please check back to this website for regular updates.
We have submitted, and will continue to submit, detailed information to the DOH in accordance with its reporting requirements and encourages all of its Resident’s family members to reach out to our social work staff to facilitate calls and/or virtual visits with their loves ones to provide their support during this critical time.
