Fox Nursing Home

Moving to a nursing home can be difficult. At A.O. Fox Nursing Home, we do everything we can to make it easier-with friendly, compassionate care that respects every resident as a unique person.

Our values here are simple: we believe people of all ages need to belong, enjoy the companionship of others, have a purpose, be creative, preserve their privacy, express their emotions-and continue to grow. Because each person does these things differently, we develop a unique plan of care for each resident. And our staff meets weekly to review every resident's needs; families and residents alike are welcome at these meetings.

In carrying out these plans of care, we use the full range of our services:

Medical/dental care. Our on-staff physician is available for residents, or they can continue to see their own doctor.

Nursing care. Available 24 hours a day.

Rehabilitation. Residents can engage in physical, occupational and speech therapy as needed.

Nutritional services. Our chief clinical dietitian and registered diet technician ensure that residents' diets meet their needs and preferences.

Social services. Our social worker serves as an advocate for residents and their families-and helps residents enjoy a full life. In addition, families and sponsors automatically become members of our Family Council, an information and advocacy forum designed specifically for them.

Pastoral care. A chaplain regularly meets with residents to offer caring, counseling and spiritual direction. Many denominations conduct services at the nursing home.

Activities. Among the activities are movies, parties, exercise groups, bingo, Bible study, arts and crafts, cooking groups, evening entertainment and community outings.

Hairdressing. A beautician is available every week.

Visiting hours are 8:30 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. every day; families are welcome to take residents on outings, hold celebrations of special occasions here, and bring their children (of course, children must be closely supervised).
