Providing care in a welcoming, resident-centered setting
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 bathrooms en-suite.
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.

Mercy Living Center offers an on-site medically supervised, short-term rehabilitation program. Designed to get patients back on their feet following a serious illness or injury, our rehabilitation care services are customized to each patient’s needs.
Customized treatment plans ensure the most appropriate treatment path is taken to meet a patient’s unique needs. Developed by our skilled staff in conjunction with your physician, treatment plans set a reasonable and attainable course for your recovery.
Led by a knowledgeable staff of licensed physical therapists, our short-term rehabilitation program features a broad-range of modern equipment and techniques. Outside of therapy, our Living Center Care Team encourages independence and helps the patient work toward their personal goals.
Working closely with the physicians of Adirondack Health, we are able to provide a seamless, continuum of care from hospital stay through release. Many of our patients come for short-term rehabilitation after orthopedic surgery; we encourage these patients to participate in the pre-surgery education program at Adirondack Medical Center.
Because most short-term rehabilitation does not require a lengthy stay, we are able to immediately accommodate most patient requests.
