Rosemary Simino has been appointed Administrator at Golden View Health Care Center. Rosemary is now responsible for day-to-day operations, assuring Golden View’s continued high quality ratings by government and private agencies. Rosemary will succeed Jeanne Sanders who has been the administrator since 1977. Jeanne Sanders will continue as Chief Executive Officer at Golden View. Sanders stated, “We are pleased that Rosemary is part of our senior leadership team, and this recent promotion further demonstrates our confidence in Rosemary and our commitment to the residents and families we serve, as well as, our employees.” 

Rosemary joined Golden View Health Care Center in 1998 as the Assistant Administrator and Director of Quality Assurance after obtaining her New Hampshire Nursing Home Administrator’s license in 1996. She has served on the New Hampshire Health Care Association’s Survey and Quality Committee since 1996 and is currently the co-chair. She has been actively involved in the American Health Care Association’s Quality Award Program since 2003. “I am delighted with this new responsibility,” said Rosemary, “and am looking forward to further contributing here at Golden View, as well as, in the broader New Hampshire healthcare community.”

Golden View Health Care Center has been providing quality health care services to the community since 1974. Golden View offers a full range of services including short stay rehabilitation, or transitional care, assisted living, long term skilled care, care for persons with Alzheimer’s and related disorders as well as respite care.
Golden View receives deficiency free annual inspection
Golden View is proud to announce its deficiency free annual inspection by the State of New Hampshire’s Department of Health and Human Services. Every year, the State conducts an unannounced inspection of nursing facilities across New Hampshire. The inspection takes place over the course of four days, including off shift hours, and all aspects of the communities are examined. During this year's inspection, Golden View earned the perfect score.

“We cannot be more proud of our staff and pleased for our residents,” said Golden View’s Administrator Rosemary Simino. “This exemplary evaluation confirms the outstanding hard work, quality of care, and strict compliance with regulations our staff works hard every day to achieve, and supports our dedication to our residents and families.”

The intensive evaluation included reviewing the facility’s day-to-day operations, quality of care provided to residents, staff qualification, and the facility’s record keeping adherence to all state and federal mandates. The licensing inspector reviewed resident charts checking for accuracy and completeness, and observed staff to verify the quality of resident care and compliance with medication supervision. Staff files were reviewed to verify compliance with licensing requirements including evidence of ongoing professional development. Finally, a tour and a complete inspection of the nursing facility were undertaken. 
Assisted living resident publishes book
Peter N. Miller, local author and assisted living resident of The Terrace at Golden View, recently published a series of short stories entitled Last Harvest: Best Short Stories 1994-2014. The book features 14 stories Peter considers his favorites out of all he's written. Seven of the stories have never been published until now. The six stories written in verse were published in Peter's book Seven Canterbury Tales Retold. The short story "This Train is Bound for Glory" was expanded into the novel Oh Freedom: A Novel of the Underground Railroad. The short story "The Heart Shaped Pendant" was also taken from Oh Freedom. The stories featured in Last Harvest will make you laugh, warm your heart with tales of love, cause you to stop and reflect on the human spirit, and--in the case of the last story in the collection--provide you with a warning about mankind's future. Last Harvest can be purchased at Moulton Farm in Meredith. 

Peter, a former Meredith selectman, has a Ph.D. in Psychology from Stanford University. Before retiring, he was a tenured faculty member at Plymouth State University, a branch of the University of New Hampshire, as well as a private practice psychotherapist. He has been writing creatively for over 20 years, studying the craft in workshops sponsored by the New Hampshire Writers' Project. Peter is happily married, and he has three adult children and one golden retriever.

Peter has also written:
Seven Canterbury Tales Retold: Improvisations on Chaucer
So Fade the Lovely: A New England Mystery
Oh Freedom: A Novel of the Underground Railroad
Jane Varney Durgin: Trick Rider, Quaker Preacher, Opponent of Slavery
