Goldsboro Assisted Living is a wonderful assisted living community in Goldsboro, North Carolina. It is within perfect Wayne County which is part of the Tar Heel State.
Goldsboro Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s Care is a facility designed for the care of elderly residents as well as those with Alzheimer’s Disease. We offer a specialized Alzheimer’s Unit. This unit is dedicated to Alzheimer’s residents with an approach that is specific to their needs, interests and abilities. It is a secured unit that allows the residents to roam while being in a safe and secure environment. This allows for freedom and mobility.
The staff of GAL&AC has been specially trained to work with Alzheimer’s residents. This includes staff on both the assisted living hallway and the Alzheimer’s Unit. Staff trainers and educators have many years experience with Alzheimer’s residents and themselves have received a lot of training from experts in the field.
Staffing ratios on both the assisted living hall and the Alzheimer’s Unit meet state regulations. The staffing ratios on the Alzheimer’s Unit are higher than the assisted living hall. Alzheimer’s residents require more supervision and assistance, and extra staff is provided to meet these needs. GAL&AC employs this staff throughout each 24-hour day including a Resident Care Coordinator, Special Care Unit Coordinator, Supervisors and certified nursing assistants. We have a RN available for training, assessments and consultations as needed.
GAL&AC is proud to offer Enhanced Care for those residents who need additional assistance with the following activities of daily living:
Regimens are set up for each resident based on their individual needs. Those residents who are more independent are encouraged in order to maintain this independence for as long as possible.
GAL&AC offers Nursing, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy to enhance the well-being of our residents. These services are offered in the facility to make it easier for the resident. GAL&AC has a specialized feeding program for residents who require assistance or prompting with eating. The Alzheimer's Unit has a feeding room set up for this program that provides a quiet environment for meals. Our staff has been trained in feeding techniques. Through this program we help our residents maintain and usually gain a little weight. This is very important in the care of our residents because weight loss can be a major factor.
GAL&AC strives to provide the best atmosphere for all our residents to enhance the quality of life for our residents.
GAL&AC strives to provide a home-like atmosphere for all residents. We offer cozy living rooms, pleasurable dining rooms and semi-private bedrooms. You are welcome to bring in your own familiar furnishings. We have sitting rooms, TV rooms, activity rooms, a beauty shop, a gazebo area and a secure courtyard for the Alzheimer's Unit where residents can enjoy being outside and still remain safe.
GAL&AC employs an Activity Director trained in providing activities to the elderly and to Alzheimer's residents. We offer diverse and individualized activity programs. Individual activity plans are created for each resident based on individual needs and abilities. Activity programs range from one on one sensory stimulation to outings. All of our residents are involved in an activity program that has been developed for each of them related to their individualized activity assessment.
