My father was admitted to Golden Living in Clifton Forge for the express purpose of being near his siblings during the last phases of his cancer. We were impressed by the staff from the beginning in how they cared for not just him, but other patients. As my father's room was right next to the nurses' station, I had many hours to listen to the interaction between the caregivers and the patients. I was astounded at the patience and compassion I overheard. We were also blessed in that my father was allowed and encouraged to get out and visit friends and relatives whenever possible. That had been a limitation at another facility; that one dictated that if he was able to get out and visit then he was too well to be in a nursing home and would be discharged. This, to a man with terminal cancer. At my father's passing, the staff treated us with gentleness and respect; even to following up a few weeks later just so 'see how we were doing.' Thank you, Gold Living!
