Elegant living with Exceptional care since 1925.

Around the Clock Care

The Petersburg Home for Ladies is staffed 24 hours a day, every day, including the late night and early morning hours, in order to serve residents who need special help or face an emergency.

If a resident becomes ill, the on-duty nurse will perform an assessment and, when necessary, get in touch with her personal physician or a family member. In an emergency, the Rescue Squad will be called. We have a special arrangement whereby the local rescue squad will transport our residents to the Southside Regional Medical Center Emergency Room free of charge.

The Home's Administrator oversees daily operations. Our Director of Nursing supervises the nursing department. Licensed practical nurses assess resident medical needs and administer medication to ladies unable to medicate themselves. They also schedule medical appointments and work with physicians to make medication adjustments. Certified nursing aides assist residents with activities of daily living.

The dietary staff, advised by a Registered Dietitian consultant, serves three well-balanced, home cooked meals a day in the Ladies Home's elegant dining room. A certified Activities Director and her assistant organize recreational activities which suit the needs and abilities of all residents. Our Memory Care Program Coordinator organizes the activities for those residents with greater cognitive need in our specialized memory care unit!

Other Amenities

The Ladies Home provides complimentary, on-site laundry service for residents.

In the beauty salon, a hairdresser washes hair, styles it, and gives permanents for a reasonable fee. A nail technician also performs manicures and pedicures.
