Fox Nursing Home

When you or a family member are ready for nursing care, staff members at A.O. Fox Nursing Home are here to help with the transition, with friendly, compassionate care, acknowledging every resident as a unique person.

Our values 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 has different needs, 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 practitioner.

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).
