Assistance Programs

How do I decide what level of assistance and services I will need?

Every resident will have a complete assessment conducted by the RN prior to moving in. This ensures an individualized care plan that meets the unique needs of each resident is developed and implemented. The RN and nursing staff, with input from the resident and/or responsible party, will develop the plan of care.  The plan of care is updated on a regularly scheduled basis or if the resident experiences a change of condition that requires an immediate adjustment in the care plan.

Can I change my plan of care at any time to accommodate changes in my health?

The plan of care will be adjusted to accommodate any change of condition observed by staff or communicated by the resident or family to ensure the resident receives the necessary care and services.

May I visit with current residents and ask them questions?

Future residents and inquiries are encouraged to visit current residents and ask them questions. We pride ourselves in all aspects of the services and care we provide and feel current residents and family will be our best advertisement.

How do you help residents transition through the different levels of care?

Through continuous routine assessments, the plan of care and implementation is constantly evolving to meet the needs of each individual resident. Adjustments are made to address specific issues and tailored to optimize the results and experience.
