'Every woman should have a suitable place to live.' This proclamation, made by the founder
'Every woman should have a suitable place to live.' This proclamation, made by the founder Sarah Donaldson in 1889, laid the foundation for a unique kind of home — and more so, for a promise. A promise by which each day, the ladies of Southmayd Home may live freely, like family, in the solace of their surrounding comforts.
Unlike so many other options, Southmayd Home is not a franchise, and is led by home care professionals and local community members. Your loved one is not just a number here. Each lady has interaction with the full staff team, while the Executive Director is on site and involved in daily happenings.
Southmayd is also a partner in your payments by helping residents fund approximately half of their living costs. Southmayd maintains affordable rates, even for those who receive no state assistance. Subsidized funding is due in part to the legacies of many residents past and present as well as generous community donors.
All nurses, aides, cooking and recreational staff are skilled and/or licensed. Staff is certified in prescription management and administering of daily medications. Southmayd Home staff has an average of 16.5 years' experience in the healthcare field and over half of the staff has been at Southmayd Home over 10 years. The average staff-to- resident ration is 1:3 to ensure a personalized, family-like environment.
