Goodwin House Home Care (GHHC) provides Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) to help residents with activities such as bathing, grooming, dressing, mobility, and escorting to appointments, socialization, shopping, errands, laundry, light housekeeping and pet care. Director, Maryellen Coale, RN, oversees the program. Home Care may be obtained with 24-hour advance notice by calling Maryellen Coale, ext. 7230. This is an optional fee-for-service program that will be billed to residents on an hourly basis.
Residents may also choose to contract with an external Home Care Agency if that agency meets GHBC policy guidelines. All private nurses, companions, aides, and housekeepers must be registered at the Reception Desk, dress appropriately, receive and wear an identification tag, sign in and out at the Reception Desk, and comply with GHBC policies. Please contact Karen Doyle, Administrator of Health Services, (ext. 7260) prior to hiring private duty personnel. Meals consumed by the private aide are to be paid by the resident.
