Gail Shimmin D.O.N.


Golden Empire Director of Nursing Gail Shimmin expects a lot from her nurses, and mentors at every opportunity. A registered nurse is on duty 24/7 at Golden Empire, and they get a lot of support from their CNA and LVN nursing staff.

While Gail has an office here at Golden Empire, you will seldom see her staying in one place for very long, because she often cares for patients herself. Guiding and developing staff on a daily basis, Gail takes her job very seriously and is dedicated to her residents and nurses.



To the Staff,

I had excellent care while I was at Golden Empire and it was greatly appreciated. I want to thank you for the use of the wheelchair.

I've just gotten to the point being able to get down the steps to my yard without the wheelchair. It has been a great help. 

Thanks again,

Juanita Thompson
