Daily Life: What's it like?

What about smoking?
No, we don’t allow smoking anywhere in the Home or on the grounds. 

Do you allow pets?
Quiet pets (sorry – no dogs) are welcome if they can be cared for independently, without staff’s help.  Holton Home and Bradley House both have birds and cat-neighbors who have adopted us.  We also arrange for animal visits throughout the year, including spring lambs and puppies.

The residents don’t live in our facility; we work in their home.

Are there other rules we should know about?
Our biggest rule is, “The residents don’t live in our facility; we work in their home.”  We work hard to live up to that by accommodating residents’ preferences as much as possible. 

Are the rooms private?
All rooms are private and have a private bath, most with a handicapped accessible shower.

May my family member bring their own furniture?
Absolutely.  Familiar belongings, from a favorite easy chair to precious photographs, help a person feel at home.
