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.

Personal shopping

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.

Beauty shop

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.
