Golden Years of Walworth is on the east side of the village of Walworth. Vic Carabrey opened the retirement facility in 1960 at the age of 80. He wanted a place where people could live out their elderly years in a safe, comfortable and respectful environment.
The first residents entered the intermediate care home in the fall of 1965. It had 26 beds.
In 1969, Carabrey retired and sold the facility to Eugene and Margaret Austin. Their son, Richard worked with them. In 1980, he bought the facility and he continues to manage it with his wife, Linda.
Golden Years added 30 independent living units in 1984, and five years later, increased the number of units to 54. In 1993, they added a skilled nursing wing to accommodate 26 beds. The Austins continue to add and remodel their facility to keep it modern, safe and comfortable for all of their residents.
Currently, they have 60 units for independent living, 27 for assisted living and 28 beds for Medicare certified nursing car.
