Choosing a Nursing Home

A GUIDE TO A MOST DIFFICULT DECISION

 

The Federal website that evaluates every nursing home in the US is www.medicare.gov. If you navigate their website you will see on the left side of the site one can search for the real hard core facts of any nursing home in the country.

A simple 1-5 star evaluation gives the reader a quick snapshot summary of nursing care standards.  For example, a 1 star facility are those which have the most nursing care problems, and facilities with 5 stars have the most favorable standards from the viewpoint of data and inspections gathered by the Department of Health.

For the past five years CLOVER REST HOME in Columbia NJ has scored a minimum 4 to 5 stars in every category. This excellent score reflects the extraordinary care that is delivered to the elderly everyday. From staffing ratios, to wound care, to survey issues, CLOVER has scored tops in Warren and Monroe counties.

CLOVER REST HOME is a small 33 bed family like nursing home located in a small town setting nestled along the Delaware River in Columbia with round the clock nurses who are trained and held accountable for meticulous care. CLOVER nurses care for those elderly with dementia or other ailments that effect seniors. CLOVER never uses temporary agency staff and therefore staff and residents are very familiar which each other. Physicians of all specialties make rounds regularly. CLOVER has a dietitian, social worker, rehabilitation staff and lots of activities including regular outside trips to enjoy the seasonal majestic views.

The “non-institutional” home like atmosphere of CLOVER REST HOME relieves families and Residents from the cold impersonal and daunting anxiety of senior care. Specially designed care plans involving families and residents address every need and potential a Resident has.

Now CLOVER has undergone a renovation of adding full bathrooms to four of their rooms. With up to date handicap accessibility and private showers with seats, Residents on the B wing will now be afforded their very own personal, fully tiled, brand new bathroom.

When Alvan Small, the Administrator, was asked why all this money was spent on bathrooms rather than other amenities, he simply replied–“it’s a dignity issue!” “CLOVER- CARE” values dignity as the utmost of importance to all our Residents”.  Residents, visitors and staff at Clover Rest Home feel and know the quality and expertise that sets “CLOVER-CARE” above the rest.
