Gold Crest Retirement Center is Medicare and Medicaid certified. We will assist with Medicare and insurance filing, provided we have all the current and accurate information. Each resident has access to beautiful safe courtyards, and various rooms which can be reserved for family gatherings. Cable Television Service in included in the room rates, but the resident is responsible for furnishing a television. Gold Crest provides three nutritionally balanced meals a day, with juice and snacks available mid-morning, afternoon, and before bed.
Each resident may have a telephone in their room. If they choose to have this service, they need to contact a telephone services provider of their choice. We also have designated phones for the residents to use to promote their privacy, available upon request. For hearing impaired residents, a volume enhancer may be applied to the phone to assist with their hearing. This device is kept at the skilled nurse’s station.
Each resident has the choice of recieving beaty/barber shop services in house. Appointments can be made on a weekly, bi-weekly, or whatever schedule they prefer. These charges are added to the resident billing each month.
A wide variety of activities are provided to meet the needs or our residents. A daily schedule is given at breakfast time that includes the activities for the day. Each resident is asked if they would like to attend and their decision is respected. If they desire to attend they will be assisted to and from the activity, if help is needed. Family members are welcome to attend activities with their loved ones.
Sunday chapel services are held at 2:30 P.M. in the chapel with fellowship following in the Activity Center with coffee and cookies served. Special small group activities or one to one visits are also planned for those with special needs. We encourage our residents to continue on with activity interests from the past in their rooms. Large print books are available from the local library and are changed each month.
Gold Crest welcomes visitors. We believe it is important to maintain the abilities of our residents through their contacts and relations. Residents may receive visits from anyone they wish, and we do not have set visiting hours. Special rooms in the Center have been designated as visiting rooms to provide comfort and privacy.
We do have the right to ask visitors to leave if they are disruptive or threaten the safety of others or if the resident does not want to see them. We do not allow solicitors.
Gold Crest welcomes people to bring in their pets for visits but we first must have proof of their current shot record or wellness check from their veterinarian, this verifies that the animal/bird is healthy. All pets need to be clean, well groomed and their master must stay with them while in the building. They must not travel in food areas. No “aggressive in nature” pets will be allowed in the facility, and all visitors with pets need to be aware of residents that do not enjoy or welcome pets. Please respect their wishes.
We can provide transportation with our van for medical appointments but there is a charge. Van transportation can also be provided for non-medical outings at an additional charge if trained staff is available.
