At Griggs County Care Center (GCCC) we seek to maximize the quality of life for our long-term care population.   We are a smaller 44 bed facility.    We strive  to care for each resident through "person centered care." Our interdisciplinary departments and compassionate team of caregivers work together with the resident and their families to make care plans that are as unique as the individual themselves.
