NURSING

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 communication.

Char Christianson, RN
Director of Nursing

ACTIVITIES Description: Description: C:\Users\john\Desktop\Documents\gamftp\images\Aviary.jpg

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.

Activity Director

SOCIAL SERVICES

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.

BUSINESS OFFICE

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.
