Social Services Staff:
Our social workers interact with our nursing staff to evaluate each residents’ capabilities and needs and develop individual treatment plans. The social services staff also counsels residents’ families concerning care and financial arrangements.
Residents live in a clean, tastefully decorated and furnished semi-private or private room with private or adjoining baths. A large dining area, activity room, lounge, sun rooms and outdoor patios add to the resident accommodations.
Plants, animals and children are a vital part of the Weirton Geriatric’s move toward the Eden Alternative where the focus is on creating a habitat for humanity in which our elders come to live. We believe that by providing such an environment continued growth is made possible and lives can be changed every day.
