Caring Family Environment
Hello! I am Stephen Heard, owner and on-site Administrator of The Baird Nursing Home, which is a unique combination of roles. Proudly, I am a proud 30-year resident of Greece, where my wife of 42 years and I raised our two children. Now we have four grandchildren! The year I was married, 1975, also marked the beginning of my Nursing Home Administrator's License, which I have repeatedly renewed through continuing education. In 1989, I came to The Baird and in 2000 took ownership of our small, 28 bed, Rochester, NY nursing home. I cannot even count the number of Greece and Irondequoit families I have come to know and enjoy over this period of time. Welcome to my second home, at The Baird.
Personalized Care to Meet Resident Needs
Since 1953, located in Rochester near the Seneca Park Zoo and embedded within the Greece and Irondequoit neighborhoods, The Baird has been serving the Greater Rochester community with residential, one-on-one therapies (physical, occupational, speech, music) and respite care. Our goal is to help each resident maintain the highest quality of life possible within a caring family environment.
Upon Admission, a new resident chooses between a spacious private room or a companion roommate. With a high staff-to-resident ratio, our well tenured staff delivers their commitment to the on-going care of your loved one. Compassion and professionalism are shown through The Baird Nursing Home's nurses, dietary specialists, one-on-one physical, occupational, speech, and music therapists, social, physical, and intellectual activities personnel, social worker, and nursing assistants. Baird caregivers will grow to know your loved one and family on a personal level. We are staffed to spend the extra time it takes to understand and focus on the resident's unique needs and goals. Our staff, along with the resident's physician and family, builds a strong support system. This team creates and maintains a custom-tailored plan of care for your Baird family member.
