Who ever thought that a nursing home would be described in the following manner: “It’s so clean you could eat off the floors?” While that may be a slight exaggeration, one of the most consistent compliments Mother of Good Counsel Home receives from visitors is the immaculate state of our entire facility. The floors are indeed spotless; swept, waxed and polished to an impeccable shine. Windows are kept clean, all rooms are dusted regularly and beds are made daily. Bathrooms are cleaned and trash is emptied as many times as needed during any given day by our committed Housekeeping staff.
In addition, our common rooms, dining rooms, Chapel and classroom also receive constant attention. This attention to detail gives residents, families and visitors the opportunity to relax and enjoy one another’s company, without worrying about cleanliness or odors. We’re especially proud of our odor-free reputation, a significant attribute for a skilled nursing facility. Our actions reflect our commitment to clean, sanitary surroundings for our residents to live peacefully and for families and guests to enjoy visiting.
In addition to cleanliness, our Housekeeping staff ensures the safety of all who reside, work or visit Mother of Good Counsel Home. Safety features include the immediate cleanup of any spills or accidents; hallways and stairwells that are free of clutter and well-lit; sufficient staff to move residents in the event of an emergency; smoke detectors and sprinklers; and door alarms and coded elevators.
