Toby is part of the Dog Assist program and regularly visits in the Villas

Where the focus is on living life, rather than on simply receiving care

"SMALL HOUSE MODEL"

  • Person-centered, self-contained, home-like residences
  • Staff-to-elder ratio of 1-to-5
  • Committed to enabling residents to move in, securely knowing that it is their home for the rest of their lives. Therefore, our continuum of serving their total needs also includes hospice care on-site.
  • The Villas of Guerin Woods has 8 Villas accommodating 78 elder residents.
  • Each 7,100 square-feet Villa has 10 private bedrooms, with the exception of the Memory Care Villa which has 8 private bedrooms, with full private baths centered around a large living room with a fireplace, open kitchen and dining room.
  • The Villas are state licensed for Medicare and Medicaid. Private pay and long-term care insurance are accepted.
In the cool of morning, seated in the garden/patio, Elders listen intently while a 
compatissant (caregiver) reads to them. Later, they engage in lively strengthening
exercises, trim old blooms from the petunias, and set the table for lunch.
Sometimes they bake a cake or prepare their favorite recipes for dinner.
In the afternoon, they gather in the living area to visit with area pastors, watch
television, or play dominoes and cards. For solitude, they retreat to their
private bedrooms where they read, nap or simply gaze out the window at the
comings and goings of Guerin Woods.
This is life for Elders living at The Villas of Guerin Woods, and they say it is good.
