Celebrating Life’s Golden Moments Together is Our Passion!
The name “Golden Moments” came to me while caring for my mother, as there were days when there was not much conversation, and then there would be those wonderful moments of clarity for mom and she would giggle, or smile, give me a wink, or say something profound. We really enjoyed her moments of independence as well, and on some occasions, out of the blue, she would tell me she loves me and thank me for caring for her. These moments were celebrated and given attention to for as long as they would last, hence “Golden Moments”.
We offer our Residents a variety of engaging home entertainment opportunities to ensure fun and smiles are a part of every day.
Friends & Family Welcome
We are pleased to have our Resident’s family participate in all social activities. We have an open door policy so your welcome to visit anytime.
Mind & Body Activities
In addition to nutritious meals, we provide guided exercise, geriatric massage, and activities designed to enhance cognition and socialization.
Making the Right Choice for Your Loved One’s Comfort
At Golden Moments our Residents become part of our extended family, and taking care of family is a passion that grows deep within my heart and reinforces the value of my own personal experiences and challenges caring for both of my parents through their battles with dementia. After much struggle and strife with different levels of care and various professionals, I became determined to create a community of families like mine.
We needed a home in which the quality of care is never substandard and not just standard but individualized in a way to take the battle out of a life with dementia and make room for the celebration of each moment.
From my past experience in working with in-home caregivers in the care of my mother, I have expanded and developed a checks and balances system, utilizing a check off list on individual Resident Daily Care Notes.
Families benefit from knowing exactly what activities their loved one is participating in throughout the day, in addition to the overall health and welfare monitoring, oftentimes they learn that their loved one enjoys an activity they once thought they would never ever participate in. I know first hand what a difficult decision it is to move your loved one, but I know that our home is just that… a home. That is why my own mother is residing at Golden Moments Care Home. I know this is where she will be given opportunities I alone could not provide. Come see the Golden Moments difference, where your family’s life can be a celebration. It would be my honor and privilege to create and celebrate life’s Golden Moments with your loved one.

On several occasions Denise Walker has solicited my advice, both personally and by way of photos through email, on matters concerning her residents, alerting me promptly, and with great detail of any medical condition changes. Denise Walker accompanies residents to the hospital for emergencies and remains with them and their family which I feel is representative of a staff that genuinely cares about their residents.
The Golden Moments Care Home’s provision of twenty-four-hour care and medication management is an important support service that ensures residents receive the necessary attention to their personal and medical needs.

My Journey Discovering Life’s Golden Moments - My experience with the elderly begins with my stepfather, from 1998 to August 24, 2002, I was a court-appointed Conservator for him. My responsibilities include, but were not limited to; Estate Management, Health Care Management, as well as, monitoring of emotional and cognitive needs.
My stepfather, diagnosed with dementia, living in an Assisted Living Facility (38-40 bed), where unbeknownst to me the care was standard, but not quality or individualized. He was in and out of the hospital, due to numerous falls, urinary tract infections, dehydration, pneumonia, and being over medicated. The responsibilities and concerns had become a full-time job. Read More
It was necessary to request his care team to understand that regardless of his dementia diagnosis, it is required they regard him as a gentleman and treat him with respect and dignity. Simple things such as a smile, warm approach, saying hello, informing him of a procedure to be done, as well as explain what’s being done, were often overlooked.
Then I discovered a warm and healing environment at a small six-bed care home, where my stepfather lived for two years longer than expected.
In 2001, my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Due to my past experiences with larger facilities, it was an easy decision to care for my mom at home. She is extremely healthy and has been at home with me and my husband for the last 12 years.
I have attended numerous support group training and counseling sessions in my capacity as a family caregiver and have been involved in planning and facilitating such resources for the community. Acting as a Substitute Facilitator for a Caregiver Support Group at a local Alzheimer’s organization.
Providing coaching and support for caregivers and families with the emphasis on assisting families to learn new approaches and communication techniques to achieve a more enjoyable and positive approach to their individual real-life situation with their loved one. At times acting as an elder advocate in achieving appropriate care of family’s loved ones in various care environments.
The name “Golden Moments” came to me while caring for my mother, as there were days when there was not much conversation, and then there would be a moment of clarity for mom and she would giggle, or smile, give me a wink.
We really enjoyed her moments of independence as well, and on some occasions out of the blue, she would tell me she loves me and thank me for caring for her. These moments were celebrated and given attention to for as long as they would last, hence “Golden Moments”.
I adore my mother and all my residents, they all touch my heart with their special ways, and they are so loving and appreciative of the care and attention we provide. Golden Moments Care Home is a place to come and really live and thrive.
We strive to make the day fun and engaging for each resident. Of course, we are fanatical about making sure all of the care is provided to the optimum level, with ongoing monitoring of medical and condition changes, medication management, research on conditions, and nutrition and hydration as well. We truly pamper our residents, as they should be.

To begin with, I lived next door to Golden Moments Care Home and had seen and met some of the GMCH staff and residents who were out on walks in the neighborhood. Upon visiting the GMCH I was impressed with the activities the staff provided the Residents and decided it looked like a fun place to work. It was more than just a work environment- it was a place of love where life was lived and shared.
In October 2012, shortly after my 18th birthday, I began to work as a caregiver for GMCH and fell in love with the Residents, Staff & Families we served. In 2014 I made the difficult decision to accept a position as Operations Manager for a large corporation. Leaving GMCH was one of the hardest decisions I’ve made, as GMCH had become my second home. I was always drawn back to GMCH, and I would visit to see the residents that I had formed relationships with over the past 5 years. Read More
In September 2018 while visiting GMCH, I made the decision to rejoin my team as my heart has always been with GMCH. In January 2019 I obtained my Residential Care Facility for the Elderly (RCFE) Administrator license. I have observed the different levels of care the resident's experience and require in their Golden Years, and strive to make a difference in their quality of life, and I’m loving every minute of it!
The owner has developed a program with an emphasis on the importance of individualized care because each resident is different and one’s Care Plan should be devised for their likes and dislikes, regardless of their mental state.
Additionally, the greater importance of socialization, and to have fun and engage residents in laughter and conversation. GMCH has been a great fit, and gift for me, especially with it being a small facility specializing in Memory Care.
This industry is definitely a labor of love and it takes a special group of people to truly care for our elders as they’ve cared for us. I am grateful for opportunities that I have been given to help me understand the importance of quality of life no matter what stage we are at in life.
The love, respect, and compassion I have for my Residents run deep within me and helped mold me into the person I am today, who is always committed to making Golden Moments with every resident that comes my way.
