A Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
The Laurels of Forest Glenn is a 140-bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation center located in a quiet suburban setting just five minutes from Raleigh. Situated near U.S. route 70, our campus provides easy access to and from Rex, WakeMed, WakeMed Cary and Duke Raleigh hospitals. We recently completed a renovation that includes a new café where you can enjoy a cup of coffee and companionship with friends or loved ones.
The Laurels of Forest Glenn care team is distinguished for its experience and longevity. We provide both short-term and long-term guests with comprehensive health-care services in a comfortable, home-like environment that promotes the highest level of independence and life quality.
Our facility and staff are equipped to provide respite, hospice and rehabilitation care for short-term guests with results guests and their families appreciate. If you are a rehab guest, we’ll work with your physician to craft a care plan for a speedy transition from hospital to home, and we’ll do a home evaluation to make sure you and your house are ready.
If you or a loved one is making The Laurels of Forest Glenn your permanent home, you will enjoy excellent, physician-directed medical care provided by our staff nurses, therapists and dietitians. You can enjoy nutritious meals that make you think you just might be home, and take advantage of activities, movies and celebrations that keep you feeling young at heart.
Most importantly, you will be able to count on the compassion, respect and friendship of the people who care for you everyday, because we understand that the human heart thrives on that. We call it The Laurel Way of Caring, and it makes for happy guests!

Thank you very much for giving my dad the very best in health care and attending to his medical needs. We visited your facility and our loved one during random times, unannounced visits, various hours, every shift, and each day of the week. During each and every instance, everyone of you created a welcoming and family-friendly environment.
My grandmother recently was taken care of by the wonderful staff at The Laurels of Forest Glenn. The OT and PT staff here were amazing for her knee surgery recovery. Highly recommend!
"Thank you for all the nice things you do and for taking such good care of my loved one."
