Nurses are on duty and available to residents 24 hours a day to administer medications and provide other health-related services.
Personal care assistants are available around the clock to assist with bathing, dressing, and other resident needs.
Meals & Snacks
The Welty Home provides three daily meals in the dining room:
Breakfast: 8 a.m. – 9 a.m.
Main Meal: 12 noon
Supper (a lighter meal): 5 p.m.
Snacks are available any time at residents’ request.
Rooms are cleaned weekly. Fresh towels are provided daily and bed linens are changed during the weekly cleaning. We provide sheets but residents may also choose to bring their own.
Welty Home does residents’ laundry on a weekly basis; each floor has a designated laundry day. Residents are also welcome to have family members take care of their laundry.
We’re pleased to drive residents to medical appointments in a comfortable, handicap-accessible van. Family members are welcome to ride with residents to their appointments.
Personal Spending Account
Residents and families may wish to establish personal spending accounts that residents can use for beauty shop appointments, personal shopping service or just to have spending money available without having to make a special trip to the bank. Good Shepherd Nursing Home handles the accounting, but cash on hand is available to residents from the Welty Home office.
A personal shopper is available weekly to purchase personal items that residents may not be able to get for themselves. A personal spending account is required to use this service.
The beauty shop located in the Welty Home is open on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Residents can make appointments for haircuts, hair styling, perms and other services. There is a small additional cost for beauty shop services.
Social services are available on an as-needed basis from a licensed social worker.
