Nursing Care and Staff

The Gafney Home is as concerned about your loved one’s medical care as it is about their physical comfort. Our clinical team of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and licensed nursing aides is available 24-hours a day. Our staff also consists of licensed administrators and certified activity program. Together, we provide 24/7 nursing care, medication administration, emergency intervention, on-site physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, lab services, dietician, and podiatry services.

Our nurses also attend outside appointments with your loved ones and ensure that they have the equipment necessary to promote the highest level of independence. 

Respite Care

Based on room availability, our compassionate and highly-skilled clinical team can provide daily care for your loved one while you take a much needed and well-deserved break. Whether that simply means an evening out for dinner or an extended vacation, your loved one will receive all the amenities of our long-term residents at an affordable daily rate.

Dining Services 

A good meal is one of the simplest pleasures in life. That’s why the chefs at The Gafney Home prepare a wide variety of satiating meal options catered to your loved one’s individual needs. In particular, we can provide meals for:

Renal Diets

Specialized Diabetic Diets

Cardiac Diets

Low Sodium Diets

We also celebrate special events throughout the year with special menus. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter dinners provide your loved ones with the tastes of the holiday. Summer wouldn’t be the same without a good, old-fashioned BBQ and cookouts.

The Gafney Home believes that a great meal is always better with family and friends.  Therefore, guests are always welcome to join their loved ones for dinner–at any time of the year–for a nominal fee.
