Staffing Policy

The home is staffed with qualified personnel 24/7/365.  Staff must meet the minimum state training requirements and be of good moral character.  All staff members are subject to a criminal background check and random drug testing.  The home employs two on premises live-in staff members that have families.  This insures that extra staff is available in case of an emergency.  Interaction between the staff family members and our guests is encouraged.  Our goal is to hire people that care.  With our family orientation, staff is encouraged to consider their work as more than just a job.

State Mandated Staffing Requirements

We exceed the state minimum staffing requirements in all areas.  The state requires the administrator to be on site twenty hours per week.  Direct Care Staff must be available to provide one hour per day of personal care per guest.  There must be sufficient staff to cook and clean.
