Skilled Nursing

Skilled nursing is needed when you or your loved one requires a licensed nurse to manage, observe, or evaluate your care. Gold Country Healthcare Center provides 24-hour skilled nursing care those in need in our community. Our nurses are compassionate and truly care about each resident.

Diabetes Management

Our nurses work with residents to strive towards taking control of their diabetes. They help monitor blood glucose levels, administer and track insulin, make exercise plans, plan menus, and provide education. Our hope is that our residents will have better control over their diabetes care.

Dietary Program

The registered dietician consultant designs our dietary program with the residents in mind. We follow physician orders to meet the needs of each resident, while making sure the meals are enjoyable and full of flavor. We also administer oral supplements, as prescribed by physicians, and provide regular nutritional assessments by our on-site registered dietician.

Social Services

Our social services team seeks help each resident attain their highest practicable physical, mental, emotional, and psychosocial health. We are aware of the worth and uniqueness of each individual, and we treat each resident with respect.

Our social services team creates an atmosphere of growth for our residents, and we spend a great deal of time working with both residents and their families in difficult transitional periods.

We also foster a supportive environment with the residents. We do this through ensuring each resident has adequate decision making opportunities, providing tours for potential residents and families, assessing psychosocial health, and guiding each care plan.
