Testimonials:


"Golden Age took me from death's door step to stronger than I've been in years.  I am now back in my own home and feeling stronger than ever!  I would highly recommend Breitling Transocean Day Date Replica Golden Age's therapy department for anyone needing to get stronger so they can go home." 

I just want to give props to the staff of Golden Age Care Center.  Our family has been going through a tough trial with both Grandpa and Grandma being ill at the same time.  The caregivers at Golden Age treat my Grandpa as if he was part of their very own family.  I prefer him to be home with Harry Winston Replica UK us and still hope that's a possibility in the future.  Knowing that he is treated so lovingly warms my heart.  Thank you for all you do.

How can we serve you?

Skilled Nursing Care:

Sometimes there is additional time needed to recuperate after a hospital stay in our "Rehab to Home" program. This is frequently the case with older adults because they tend to recover at a slower rate. These patients can take advantage of the extra 2 to 3 weeks of direct therapies to improve strength. Our "Rehab to Home" program has a proven track record for getting individuals back to their homes and the added recovery time and services are paid by Medicare for the qualified stay. "Skilled Nursing Care" means that licensed nurses and/or therapists will work daily with the resident. Golden Age Care Center's skilled nursing services are designed to meet the needs, providing round-the-clock nursing care for a limited number of days or weeks as per government guidelines. Our goal is to facilitate a return to the patient's highest level of function. (More of Skilled Nursing)
