I find myself heading up the largest
department at Golden Acres. Its size is an indication of the importance we
play in your loved one's total care.
It has been said that nursing is a career measured in moments, not years.
Here at Golden Acres we strive to make every moment count.
Nursing is dedicated to carrying out the doctors' orders. To that end, we
want to work closely with you as a family; we request your involvement. Be
open and honest with the nursing staff as to your concerns, should there be
any. We can only solve care and medical issues by direct, immediate

We at Golden Acres believe the primary
goal of the activity department is to strive for excellence in meeting the
activity needs of all the residents we serve. We encourage each of the
residents to achieve their maximum functional potential. For those who
cannot realistically resume normal activities, interventions are developed
through one on one individual attention and small group programs..
Activity is the heart of the facility. From large group activities like
arts and entertainment right here in the facility to shopping and field
trips in our community as well as neighboring towns, we are here to enhance
the quality of the resident’s life.
We would love to have you join us at any of our activities and
volunteers are always welcome! Please feel free to stop by and give me the
opportunity to introduce myself and let me show you around.

Residents at Golden Acres Manor have the right to be treated with courtesy, repect and dignity. We believe everyone has the right to receive individual care to meet their physical, mental, psychosocial and spiritual needs.
I am available to give tours, offer guidance for the admission process, assist with the completion paperwork, answer questions and be a resident advocate or a family liaison. I also offer guidance related to applying for Medicaid, explain Medicare benefits available for nursing home care and throughout a residents stay I will be involved in most aspects of their care and will coordinate any discharge planning for those returning to their home.
Residents and family members are always welcome to visit with me for information or concerns.

My office is only a door knock or a phone call away. The Medicaid
system, the case mix system, and other methods of payment are always the
cause of many questions.
I want you to feel confident that you can have your questions answered
in a manner that eases your concerns or lessens the stress.
