Welcome
Welcome to Rockingham County’s continuum of care approach to long-term care services. Because different levels of care are needed to serve the community, we support and operate a stepping stone approach that offers our assisted living residential care program, as well as the Rockingham County Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. Together, these services offer a safe, caring, and sound system of care that allows families to choose the level of care that fits their needs and allows increased services when necessary.

The Rockingham County Campus is owned and operated by Rockingham County. The philosophy of Rockingham County is to provide the highest quality care available to all residents of the campus.

We encourage residents and families to bring small items from home that will assist in making the transition to placement.  Administration and staff wish to do all we can to assist in making the residents and clients of our campus comfortable.

Location and History
The Rockingham County Long Term Care Services Campus is located on North Road, Brentwood, New Hampshire, and has been in existence since 1869, having begun as an almshouse for Rockingham County residents. The Campus is comprised of five interconnected buildings.

Mitchell Memorial Hospital was built in 1935 to serve as a general county hospital. The hospital was closed in 1944 when the war caused staff shortages. The Mitchell Building was reopened in 1952, and as a result of renovations in early 1992, the building is now home to Administrative and County Offices.

The Fernald Building was built in 1958, with 84 resident care units. In 1974, the Blaisdell Building was completed, providing Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Activities, along with 104 resident care units. In 1980, a portion of the Blaisdell Building became home to the Helen F. Wilson, Adult Medical Day Care Center. In December 2013, the day care program was closed.

December 1992 brought the opening of the John C. Driscoll Building and Elizabeth “Betty” Greene Atrium – a year-round enclosed courtyard, providing residents a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere for socializing.

An extension to the Fernald building, completed in 1986, provided an expansion in the laundry, kitchen, and housekeeping facilities, as well as a new staff dining room.

Today the Campus stands as a provider of superior comprehensive nursing and medical care that meets the physical, psychological, and social needs of all residents.
