Mercy Living Center

The residents at Adirondack Health's Mercy Living Center in Tupper Lake enjoy a secure and welcoming environment, close to friends and family in the community.

Comfort and convenience is enhanced through our semi-private and private living areas – all with en suite bathrooms.

Our Living Center is a fully certified and accredited long-term care facility staffed with physicians, nurses, aides, and other medical and health professionals, working together to ensure residents' needs are met – no matter the time of day or night.

Our caring and attentive staff meets with all new residents and their families within the first week to develop an individualized Care Plan that meet each person's unique needs and interests. This close personal attention enables the Care Teams to design a resident-centered care and activity plan that encourages participation in activities and services that are most beneficial.
