Accommodation and Furnishings

Cozy Rooms and surroundings

The rooms are either private or semi-private, depending on your choice. All rooms have their own bathroom.
Each room is equipped with a bed, a bedside chest, bedside lamp, a chair, a call bell system and individual heat control.

You are encouraged to add some of your own things to create a home-like environment for yourself – these might include chairs, lamps, tables, a television, a radio and pictures for your walls.

Personal Care

We have a Nurse on duty at all times. She will dispense the medications, converse with your physician concerning your needs and assess any medical concerns you may have.

There are Guest Attendants on duty, as well, and they will assist you with your daily personal care.

Food Service

Some residents enjoying a mid afternoon chat over coffee. Our seniors enjoy social times together.

There is a Dietary Supervisor available to ensure that all the residents are served a good tasting, well-balanced, nutritious diet. The meals and snacks are served in the dining room for all residents. Menu choices are posted daily, and special diets are accommodated. There are two settings for each meal and all residents come to the dining room, unless otherwise decided by the Nurse. The meal times are as follows:

  • Breakfast 7:40 a.m. and 8:40 a.m.
  • Lunch 11:40 a.m. and 12:40 p.m.
  • Snack 2:00 p.m.
  • Supper 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.
  • Snack 8:00 p.m.

We do serve wine, occasionally, with dinner, on a special day, but alcoholic beverages are not served here on a regular basis. If your physician is aware, you may have an alcoholic beverage in your room for your own consumption.

Laundry and Housekeeping Services

Machine washing and drying, some minor mending, and applying name labels to your clothes are provided at no extra cost. The cost of the labels themselves will be added to your monthly statement. We are not able to do dry cleaning. Housekeeping services are provided daily.
