The Laurels is committed to effective communication during this unprecedented time in our history. We regularly apprise guests, families, and associates to changes in facility status and policy as needed and as deemed appropriate.

We have been humbled by the support we’ve received from the local community and we truly appreciate everyone’s continued cooperation and understanding. For more information and resources regarding COVID-19, see the COVID-19 Resources page.

The Laurels of Chatham

A Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

The Laurels of Chatham is located in Pittsboro, North Carolina, not far from the route 15 and 64 intersection. Our 140-bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation center has a multitude of services to fit the needs of the guest. The beautiful setting and home-like environment attracts guests and their families from Sanford, Siler City, Chapel Hill and Western Wake County. 

Professionals at The Laurels of Chatham work as a team to promote the highest level of independence and quality of life for our short-term and long-term guests—whatever their needs. That’s because we view each guest as part of a family whose members deserve not only great care, but also compassion, dignity and a sense of purpose. 

We have quickly returned many short-term rehab guests home after hospitalizations. Perhaps that’s because our therapists work with each guest’s physician to create a customized care plan. We also are pleased to provide short-term respite and hospice care.  

In our fully secured Memory Care Unit, specially trained staff members provide tender care to long-term guests with Alzheimer’s and other cognitive challenges, assuring they enjoy the benefit of comforting and familiar spaces, faces and routines.

And we pull out all the stops to keep life rich and exciting for our other long-term guests. Activities, events, and birthday and holiday celebrations help these members of the Laurel family stay busy and connected with one another. It’s all part of The Laurel Way of Caring, and it comes from our hearts.

Extended and long-term care stays are appropriate for individuals that require greater levels of care and support than can be provided at home or within an independent living setting. Our guests typically need assistance with their daily activities due to physical and/or cognitive limitations.

I have nothing but good things to say about The Laurels of Chatham ... My daughter is totally dependent on someone to meet all her basic needs and finally, at The Laurels of Chatham, I have found nursing staff and administration willing to give her that type of care.


“We want you to know how much we appreciate everything you did for our sister. We don't think she could have been in a better place. The love and compassion you showed her and us was above and beyond the call of duty.”


"My mother has improved tremendously during her stay at the Laurels. She seems to be at peace and that is so important because it is apparent due to the love, care and concern received from the staff. We are very pleased with the service at Laurel’s. I highly recommend this facility to anyone."
