Staff appreciation week at Amie Holt Care Center
For staff appreciation week at the Amie Holt Care Center, staff jumped on their horses and had a horse race (see video above) - all for the residents.
This is just one example of how our staff goes above and beyond to make sure residents are happy and healthy.
Thank you for your interest in our long-term care facility
The Amie Holt Care Center provides excellent care and is proudly rated as a 5 star facility in Medicare Nursing Home Comparisons.
Visitation at Amie Holt Care Center
We are excited to announce that visitation restrictions are being loosened in the long-term care setting, which will allow in-room visitation with the residents.
This change will be in effect at Amie Holt Care Center beginning on Monday March 29, 2021. Our Activities Department and volunteers will screen visitors at the main entry doors and escort them through the facility.
We are still operating under the guidance of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and must provide limited supervision to make sure that visitors and residents are following infection control guidelines such as wearing masks at all times, performing hand hygiene and maintaining social distancing.
We continue to encourage all visitors to visit outside as the best and safest practice, but visitors are allowed to visit in resident rooms following the following guidelines:
In-Room Visitation will be during the hours posted ONLY.
- Monday through Friday 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
- Saturday 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
We will continue to have scheduled visits available, supervised by activity staff, upon appointment only. Call Amie Holt Care Center, 307-684-2122. to schedule appointments.
- Monday 6 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
- Tuesday 6 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
- Wednesday 6 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
- Sunday 10:30 a.m., 11 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 1:30 p.m.
These visitation hours are subject to change at any time due to CMS requirements for staff supervision.
We ask that residents and their families who choose to enjoy in-room visitation follow these guidelines:
- No more than 2 visitors may visit a resident at one time.
- Enter the facility at the locked main entrance doors only. If nobody is at the reception area to assist you, call the Supervisor Nurse cell phone (307) 217-0459.
- You will sign in and be screened each day following our protocol, have your temperature checked, and perform hand hygiene.
- We cannot allow you to visit if you have any signs of a respiratory or other infection: fever, shortness of breath, cough, congestion, cold-like symptoms, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat or hoarse voice.
- Visitors and residents must wear a mask at all times in the facility and in the resident’s room.
- Once you have been screened, staff or volunteers will escort you to the resident’s room.
- Visitors must remain in the resident room or designated visiting area at all times. If you are asked by staff to step out temporarily while personal care is performed, you must remain just outside the resident’s doorway so that you will not be near other residents.
- Visitors are not permitted to interact with other residents.
- If the resident is fully vaccinated, you may visit closer than 6 feet if the resident chooses. Both visitors and residents must wear a mask.
- We are not allowing visits during meal times, no food and drink during visits.
- Use the call light in the resident room or call the supervisor phone, (307) 217-0459, if you need assistance and when you are ready to leave.
- Staff will escort you to and from the room as is required by the CDC and CMS.
The staff may ask visitors to leave if they are not following this protocol. Thank you very much for your cooperation and understanding throughout this pandemic.
Our goal is to protect all of our residents from the spread of COVID-19.
If you have any questions or concerns we are happy to discuss them with you. You may contact JoAnn Carter, RN/IC at 684-2122 ext. #6282.
Prior to admission, coordination is initiated through the Social Service department and your physician. A preadmission interview is held with the resident and/or responsible party and others involved in the new resident’s care to gather information.
A preadmission review is done to ensure your medical and psychological needs can be met at this facility.
Social Services will work closely with you and your loved ones to help through this process. Every effort will be made to reduce the stress and anxiety caused by the anticipated admission.
On the day of admission, be prepared to allow time to sign paperwork, cover information regarding available services and costs to the resident, and learn more about our facilities philosophy of care.
As long as you live here, the Social Services dept.will continue in assisting you to solve any problems you may encounter and facilitate team involvement to resolve your concerns.
We encourage you to bring personal belongings from home to make you feel more comfortable in your new surroundings. However, please keep in mind that there is limited space for personal belongings in your room and a limited amount of storage space in the facility.
When possible, please have eyeglasses, dentures and hearing aids labeled. The place of purchase can usually label them by etching your name on them. It is recommended that you bring six changes of clothing and at least one pair of shoes. All of your clothing will be labeled by our laundry department upon admission or at any time new clothing is purchased.
Please do not bring wool items or items made with sensitive fabrics. Our washing systems do use hot water, and could shrink delicate clothing.
Other items to consider bringing may be: an afghan, personal pictures, and a radio.
Mealtime is a special time and we encourage friends and family to dine with residents. There are several dining areas available within the facility from which to choose. We invite your family to enjoy a complimentary meal with you on the day of admission.
Normally, meals are $4.00, and are payable at the front desk of the Amie Holt Care Center or at the Dietary Department. Please give us advance notice if you plan to have more than one guest.
Residents are served buffet style meals. There is always a main entrée and a substitute meal is offered. A buffet breakfast is available from 7:00am - 9:00am to allow residents the opportunity to sleep in if they wish. Our Family dinner and Jam get together happens once a month at no charge for guests to dine. Family and friends are urged to attend this event that is typically held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.
For the current daily rate of a room, please contact the Social Service Department. This cost is all inclusive and covers everything a resident would need on a daily basis including: 24 hour care by trained professionals, room, meals, snacks, incontinence products, general grooming and hygiene supplies, wound care and nursing supplies. If you have the personal resources, you can be admitted to our facility as a private pay resident. Payment for the month is expected at the time of admission. If your financial situation limits your ability to pay for your stay at AHCC, you may be eligible for Medicaid. You can work with the Social Service department to receive an application and guidance on how to apply for Medicaid coverage.
Medicaid applications may take some time to complete; therefore, if you anticipate nursing home placement in the near future, it will be well worth your time to start work immediately on the financial arrangements to assure adequate financial coverage upon admission. This facility is not Medicare certified.

Medical Social Services Department
In June of 2016, we moved into our brand new facility. We have 44 private rooms with bathrooms. Private showers are in each room. A large, open dining room on the main floor offers mountain views and overlooks the local golf course.
Medications are billed separately from room and board charges. Private pay residents have the choice of using the Prescription shop or the Johnson County Healthcare Center Pharmacy (JCHP). The private pay cost of filling medications through JCHP is the average wholesale price plus $5.00 per prescription per month. JCHP will supply all narcotics and injectable medications for all residents. In order for the JCHP to bill insurance for prescription drug coverage, you will need to be enrolled in a Medicare part D plan in our pharmacy’s network. If you are unsure which plan to choose, consult with the AHCC Social Services Department for assistance
We are proud of the wonderful activities department that keeps our residents active and entertained on a daily basis. Residents are encouraged to take part in both independent and group activities. they are invited to attend outings in our brand new recreational bus equipped with a wheel chair lift. Check out our activities calendar and see what is happening this month at AHCC.
