If a loved one requires intensive rehabilitative services following a stroke or surgery, ACV provides the right amount of care needed to return each resident to his or her highest level of function. The goal of all our senior care services is to encourage residents to find a more fulfilling life.
To be admitted to Good Samaritan Center, a person must be at least 60 years of age and meet the state of Florida nursing home admission guidelines, as ordered by a physician.
The state of Florida requires that Advent Christian Village employees working directly with members at Good Samaritan Center obtain a certain number of hours of training relating to Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. ACV gladly fulfills that obligation, but also invests quite a bit of time in additional training.
A number of years ago, GSC’s Director of Nursing Judy Crager developed a 12-week program that all GSC staff members are required to complete based on the book The Art of Dementia Care. It’s a very intensive training program on dementia and Alzheimer’s care. Once an employee goes through that program and graduates, they become an Artist of Dementia Care.
We wanted our residents to have more chances to express what makes them unique. The program changes how employees think about people in need of Alzheimer’s and dementia care and what they go through. It also teaches each staff member how to better help the families of those suffering with memory loss. Even though the time the training takes is a strain, the investment is absolutely worth it.
Good Samaritan Center is rated a four-star (above average) nursing home by CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services). The overall rating is based on individual ratings in health inspection results, an evaluation of staffing hours, and quality metrics. Quality metrics, the area where Good Samaritan Center truly shines, is a rating of resident assessment data that shows how well the nursing home cares for residents’ needs. At Good Samaritan Center, your loved one will receive the best memory care that allows them to be more of their true self.
