At this time, I would like to introduce you to our staff at Safe And Secure!  Because it is a small facility, all staff must be able to not only take care of our residents, they must

also cook, clean, meet with family members and other third-party entities, and handle any other issues that come up during the course of a day.  There are two 12-hour shifts;

7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.  During the day, there are two Resident Aides on staff; at night, there is one Resident Aide on staff.  For our residents who need their medication administered to them, our nurse(s) come over to Safe And Secure from Carington Manor on a daily basis to make sure they receive their medications.  The Administrator and Owner are on

call 24 hours a day.
