Golden Years History

Golden Years History

Golden Years began as an idea created by Mr. Vic Carbrey. In 1960, at the age of 80, he began building his nursing home where older folks could live, be cared for and respected. Upon completion in November 1965, the first residents were welcomed and Mr. Carbrey’s dream became reality. In 1969, having completed his goal, Vic decided to retire and sold the Golden Years Nursing Home to Eugene and Margaret Anne Austin. Their son, Richard, began with them in 1969 and on January 1, 1980, he and his wife, Linda, purchased the facility from Rich’s parents.

Now under the second generation of Austin ownership, Golden Years continues to be operated as a privately-owned family business. Under the Austin family’s guidance, Golden Years continues to grow to meet the challenges of caring for today’s seniors and those that will follow them. We are proud of the care we continue to provide and grateful for the privilege to serve the many seniors who have made Golden Years their home.
