Visiting Hours

Fern Lodge does not have set visiting hours, but we do appreciate hearing about your visits ahead of time to insure that you can see the patient promptly.  Our doors are locked during the night, so please call if you are coming late.

Please call us before coming to see a patient at Fern Lodge that way we can make sure they are not engaged when you arrive.  Our receptionists work 9-5 every day in the main entrance and are happy to help you with our sign-in procedure.  If the receptionist is out, please sign in on the sign in sheet at the front desk and ring the buzzer at the front desk to get a nurse.  You can also see today’s activities at Fern Lodge here.

Calling Patients

Every patient has a phone in their room.  If you would like to call a patient, please ask the receptionist for their telephone extension.  You can type in this three digit extension after the receptionist goes home in the evenings to call a patient.


If you would like to eat a meal with a patient while you are here, please give our kitchen at least two hours notice.  Lunch is at 11:30 and Dinner is at 5:00.  You can call the kitchen directly at 510-886-2448 Ex. 227 or call a nurse at Ex. 211.


If you would like a tour of our facility, please give us a call or email ahead of time, and one of our office staff would be happy to give you a tour.
