At Eskridge Care Center, making a difference in the lives of those we serve is our mission. Our highly trained registered and licensed practical nurses provide on-site psychiatric services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in a safe, secure environment. By offering exceptional mental health and psychiatric care in a safe and structured environment, we can help you or someone you care for gain the skills needed to be as independent as possible. We want you to know you’re not alone. We’re here to help make admissions and transitions go as smoothly as possible.
Whether tailored for individuals or designed with a group in mind, daily activities are an important aspect of life at our community. We encourage residents to improve their overall health and make new friends by participating in a variety of activities. Options include stimulating and therapeutic exercise classes and off-site outings to nearby restaurants or other attractions. We also host movie nights.
Nicely appointed dining rooms offer residents a comfortable, fun way to socialize and make new friends while they enjoy chef-inspired fare that can be tailored to meet dietary needs. Our dining staff is dedicated to making dining and meal services healthy and uplifting.
We offer ample opportunities for religious and spiritual enrichment including ecumenical worship services and access to spiritual care providers.
Want to share your musical talent to help brighten the day for others? Maybe you have a knack for teaching painting or drawing or you are an excellent cribbage player. There are many opportunities for doing volunteer work at our community and turning your skill or passion into a life-enhancing experience for others. Whatever your background or age, volunteering gives you the chance to meet new people and share your talents and skills.
As a volunteer, you share your time and talent with our clients. Many options are available to you through our program.
Even if you can only volunteer one hour a week, everyone involved will benefit from the generous donation of time and talent. Do mornings work best or can you come on Sunday afternoons? Great! We’ll work around your schedule.
Volunteering is fulfilling and can be life-changing. You can showcase your talents while seeing firsthand the ways you’re able to enhance the lives of others.
Volunteering is for anyone over the age of 18! Our volunteers receive education in working with our specific residents to assist in understanding his/her needs.

At Mission Health, we are committed to enhancing the lives of those we serve. While making life better for others begins with our patients, residents and their families, it extends to our caring staff and the communities in which we all work, play, and live.
Through Mission Giving, our community involvement program, we are able to extend our reach collectively and individually through three initiatives that work in concert to provide social, strategic, and financial support to individuals and organizations that share our goal in fostering strong, healthy people and communities.
Caregiving is a journey, and everyone travels a different path. Providing care to someone who is suffering from an illness can be physically and emotionally draining – that’s why we created Mission Giving’s Giving Back to Caregivers Initiative. We offer caregivers helpful resources, strategies, fun activities and support group options that not only encourage discussions about the stresses of caregiving but also celebrate the willing, supportive spirit caregivers share.
Many of Mission Health’s employees are passionate about donating or volunteering their own time to help others in their respective cities, towns and communities. This dedication to giving back is an admirable quality in the way that it enhances the lives of others. Mission Giving’s Giving Back to Neighbors Grant Initiative is designed to encourage and recognize Mission Health employees who volunteer their personal time to support a registered 501(c)(3) charity by awarding $100 grants that, if approved, will be donated to that charity on behalf of an employee.
“There is power in unity, there is power in numbers.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
When it comes to making a difference in the lives of others, the Alzheimer’s Association and the American Heart Association are two national health organizations that do very important work on a local, regional, and national level. We created Mission Giving’s Giving Back Together Initiative to work together as a company to champion the efforts of these organizations while creating meaningful and lasting relationships between the organizations’ chapters, our home office, and the areas in which we operate.
We’re always looking for talented and passionate individuals who enjoy working together as a team to make a difference in the lives of others each and every day.
We appreciate your feedback and any comments you’d like to share that can help us in our mission to do the best job possible in enhancing the lives of those we serve.
