You know the minute you walk in the door that this is not your typical nursing home. You will see smiles and hugs and families enjoying time together. People are friendly. Staff members have typically been part of the Gwynedd Square family for well over ten years and have special bonds with our residents.
You see it in people’s faces, in their appearance, in the host of joyful, entertaining and meaningful activities throughout the day and evening. When you visit, be sure to ask a visiting family member how they and their loved one like Gwynedd Square. And be sure to ask any staff members how they like working at Gwynedd Square. You will feel the genuine love and caring and enthusiasm that makes Gwynedd Square a special community.
Gwynedd Square has been family owned and operated since 1980. It is not part of a large corporate chain of nursing homes with headquarters in another state. Family values and family pride are what make the difference. Gwynedd Square consistently receives the federal government's highest rating, 5 stars, and is consistently a US News & World Report Best Nursing Home. Gwynedd Square has received numerous awards and recognitions from consumer advocacy organizations, government agencies, attorney organizations (AHLA, ABA) and multiple local community organizations.
Gwynedd Square is a recognized leader in best nursing home practices and dementia care. It has been selected by the US Department of Health & Human Services, Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services, as a model of best practices for improving care for residents with dementia and reducing the inappropriate use of antipsychotics in residents with dementia.
