Volunteer Opportunities

The Volunteer Department of the Merrimack County Nursing Home is always interested in talking to folks over the age of thirteen who might be interested in Volunteering at any of the various opportunities that are available. All that is necessary is for the prospective Volunteer to have a desire to interact with the Residents of the facility in such a way that it will be a rewarding experience for both the Resident and the Volunteer.

Time spent can be a couple or many hours per week; day or evening. To discuss one or more of the following opportunities feel free to call the Volunteer Department at 796-2165 ext 242 to hear the whole story:

  • Transport Residents to various activities.
  • Visit with Residents on a one on one basis.
  • Deliver CD’s, DVD’s, Books & Greeting Cards to Residents.
  • Work in the Gift Shop.
  • Visit Residents with your “well behaved” dog.

Nursing Home Rates

The current self-pay charges are $325.00 per day.  They are subject to review periodically by the Administrator and the Board of County Commissioners.  This charge includes room, board, nursing care, and all other services and materials routinely provided to residents of Merrimack County Nursing home.  Item not covered under the daily charge are pharmaceuticals, medical supplies, personal rehabilitation equipment, special therapies, Hair Care Center services, cable television and, if using a Nursing Home phone, the cost of out-of-state calls or, if they have their own phone, the full cost of that phone.  Financial arrangements should be made to cover these additional expenses, i.e. establish an account for monthly withdrawals or automatic payments made monthly.

Hospitalization, x-ray and laboratory services, dental services, ambulance service and other kinds of care not provided by Merrimack County Nursing home and its employees will be the responsibility of the self-pay resident.

Merrimack County Nursing home does not accept medications brought in by the resident/family (except in emergency situations and certain special vitamins as approved by the medical director).  MCNH is currently under contract with Pharmerica Pharmacy Services; however, we have adopted an “Outside Pharmacy Policy” and a “Notice of Intent to Purchase Medications from an Outside Provider.”  Further information may be obtained by contacting the Business Office.
