Golden Empire Nursing & Rehab Center was started by a group of physicians in 1973.  Their mission has not changed since then -- to provide the very best nursing and rehabilitative care to our geriatric population.  These caring physicians have managed our facility from its inception, and we continue to thrive and grow with their support and oversight.  Our Administrator, Vicki Young, works closely with them to have a facility that takes pride in our excellent nursing care.   
Although we are one of the older facilities in town, we are constantly changing and improving and have embraced the concept of resident-centered care.  We want them to live in a beautiful home-like environment with plants, patios, dogs, cats, fish, birds and lots of fun things to do.

Our care ranges from the resident receiving rehabilitation services working toward returning home to the long-term resident who can't live at home any longer and needs our skilled level of care.  Our beautiful secured Alzheimer's Unit offers specialized care and activities to our residents with Alzheimer's Disease and other related dementias.

We are proud to have the only Pink Ladies Auxiliary in town, approximately 40 volunteers.  They are dedicated to making life more enjoyable for our residents and offer beauty shop services, church services, and have a ceramics studio complete with kiln.  In addition, they have provided a beautiful whirlpool, home theater, and fireplaces for the residents to enjoy.  There are many other events in which they spend time and effort to make our residents feel special, especially during the holidays.

Golden Empire offers extra services such as our Amenities Program, which is especially great for those families who can't be closer and want that special attention given to their loved one.  In addition, our Tender Touch massage program is available to all our residents.  Managed by a certified massage therapist, Golden Empire is the only skilled nursing facility in the Grass Valley area offering this integrative program, designed to improve the residents' quality of life.  We also have a van, equipped with a wheelchair lift, which is available for a fee to transport residents to appointments.

Our entire staff is dedicated to providing compassionate, skilled care while nurturing the social and spiritual well-being of our residents.  We pledge to treat each resident with respect and dignity while enriching their quality of life.

Dear Golden Empire Nursing,

A heart felt thank you for the wonderful care of my father, Glenn R. Slicker. I can't list everyone but you all know that my respect for each of you grows each time I think of your angel hands and your warm showing of respect you all showed my father.

All three shifts, each of you, every single person responsible for his care I thank, including the front office all the way to the kitchen and laundry.

What a group of angels you all are. Mostly a huge thank you to the staff on duty Oct 5th through the morning of the 6th for letting us stay with Daddy. God Bless you all and thanks too for your support of my mom Angie.

Blessings, Linda Wright.
