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

It is the mission and philosophy of Golden Acres Manor to strive for excellence in meeting the individual activity needs of all the residents we serve. We encourage each of the residents to achieve their maximum functional potential. Activities are an integral part of the cultural change movement and central to person-centered care. It is essential for resident’s quality of life.

An individualized, activities program is the heart of a quality life for residents in nursing homes. Golden Acres Manor provides an ongoing activity program that is designed to meet the interests and physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being of each individual resident. We identify each of our resident’s interests and needs and involve the resident in an ongoing activity program that is designed to appeal to his or her interests.

You are always welcome to join us at any of our activities. Golden Acres Manors would love to have you join us as a volunteer. We are always looking for new people to volunteer time here at the nursing home. Please feel free to stop by and give me the opportunity to introduce myself and let me show you around.

Being new to Golden Acres, and long-term care, I am excited to get more familiar with both; as well as establish relationships with the residents and family members.
