Shari Antonucci D.O.N.

Golden Empire Director of Nursing Shari Antonucci oversees a staff comprised of Registered Nurses, Certified Nursing Assistants, Licensed Vocational Nurses, and volunteers, all professionally trained to kindly care for your loved one. While Shari has an office here at Golden Empire, you will seldom see her staying in one place for very long, because she often cares for patients herself. Guiding and developing staff on a daily basis, Shari takes her job very seriously and is dedicated to her residents and nurses.

Shari's background in nursing prior to Golden Empire was on a sub-acute floor in Southern California, then while working as a home-based RN.  Shari moved to the Bay Area where she also worked in Home Health Care, and after taking a break two stay at home with her two children, she started here at Golden Empire.

Shari has worked at Golden Empire Nursing and Rehab in Grass Valley for 9 and a half years now.  Having started as RN Supervisor on night shift working just two nights a week, Shari quickly began working the PM shift with increased responsibility and hours. Shari became a full time Day Shift Supervisor about 2 and a half years after she started at Golden Empire, again increasing her responsibilities. 

Shari became the Director of Nursing 4 and half years ago and has enjoyed seeing constant improvement and positive change here at Golden Empire. Of course, Shari has helped drive some of that change, as we are continually looking for ways to innovate and increase our offerings to the community. 



To the Staff,

I had excellent care while I was at Golden Empire and it was greatly appreciated. I want to thank you for the use of the wheelchair.

I've just gotten to the point being able to get down the steps to my yard without the wheelchair. It has been a great help. 

Thanks again,

Juanita Thompson
