Quality of Life
The Judson Palmer Home is not a nursing home. It is a residence home for women of Hancock County 65 years and better. And, it is much more than that.
When a woman becomes a member of the Judson Palmer family, she will not only be cared for now but the rest of her life. Her quality of life will be ensured as we will always take care of her medical expenses, prescription drugs, nursing home care, funeral expenses, as well as her personal care items.
The Judson Palmer Home is a licensed residential care facility designed to be "home" to 15 women, regardless of their financial means. The home is funded by a private trust created by Judson and Katherine Palmer and is governed by a board of trustees. The trustees' only commitment is to provide a quality of life for each woman through a caring home-like atmosphere.
There is a staff of 22, with Nurses providing 24/7 care to the residents assisted by State Tested Nursing Assistants (STNA). Each resident has a private room that meets their individual taste, with comfortable, accommodating communal bathrooms on each of the two floors. In the downstairs living room, residents delight in listening to the new baby grand piano that staffers enjoy playing for them. The facility also includes two sun rooms. Three nutritious, delicious meals and a snack are served daily.
Visitors and residents regularly encounter our feline friends Sissy, and Jack patrolling the halls.
Residents are free to come and go as their health permits, but planned social activities both in and out of the home are provided. Personal care services, such as a beautician, are available regularly at the home.
A beautiful rose garden with a charming gazebo sits on part of the lovely grounds, ideal for taking an afternoon stroll or quiet rest.
In short, everything possible is done to enhance the quality of life for each woman at the Judson Palmer Home.
