What is an Assisted Living Program?
It is a residential or facility based program that provides housing and supportive services, supervision, personalized assistance, health related services, or a combination of these services to meet the needs of individuals who are unable to perform, or who need assistance in performing, the activities of daily living. It is done in a way that promotes optimum dignity and independence for the individuals being cared for.
What is respite care?
Respite Care is generally a short term stay of two weeks or more. Many individuals use that time for vacation or to help their loved ones make the decision to transition into a setting much like their home.
Would my loved one have to move?
The safety and security of our residents is our number one priority! Your loved one will only need to move if we determine that there is a safety issue to the resident or those around him/her. Occasionally, a temporary move is necessary, such as to a nursing rehabilitation center for rehab therapy.
Do you provide hospice care?
Residents can continue to receive care in our home through a partnership with the Hospice Care Team. We strive to provide hospice care residents with the loving care and support needed to maintain a good quality of life.
What is the role of the Delegating Nurse or Case Manager?
The Delegating Nurse/Case Manager is a Registered Nurse who is responsible for the initial assessment of residents. This individual also does a monthly or forty five day visit to assess the continued well being of residents. Our Delegating Nurse/Case Manager is available on a twenty-four hour basis for all emergencies and to evaluate any change in a resident's condition.
Are your fully rooms furnished?
Our rooms are furnished and set up to meet the needs of most assisted living residents. Most of our rooms are fully furnished, but we encourage families to bring whatever furniture or decorations their loved ones may need to make our facility feel like home for them.
