I have never seen such incompetence in staff before. Leaving ivs in long after session was over, treating guests poorly, putting patients to bed without changing diapers, not giving diabetic medicines properly, etc. this place should be the last resort.

The staff at Golden Living in Gettysburg, PA gave our whole family the support and guidance we needed to get through my father's recovery process after having a major stroke. Their positive and helpful attitudes kept dad from becoming depressed and he never stopped trying to improve. They did a great job! He is back home with us after 3 months with them and doing wonderful. Mom has dementia but has even improved knowing dad was at such a nice place and coming home soon. They are back together and moving forward. I can't say enough to express our thanks to the Administration team, Nursing team and Support teams that all came together to help my father heal and improve - and helped me and my husband keep our sanity. Thank you Golden Living Gettysburg - you will always have a place in our hearts!
