What are the benefits of a small assisted living home environment?

There are a number of benefits to a small assisted living setting.  It is not institutional and less intimidating than the larger facilities hence making it more intimate.  Due to the higher staff to resident ratio, residents receive more one-on-one attention and supervision than in a larger environment.

 

What happens if my loved one’s condition deteriorates to the point that end of life care is appropriate?

We are in regularly contact with families regarding the health and condition of our residents.  Our professional staff is trained to recognize and adapt to our resident’s changing needs.  When the resident is deemed appropriate for end of life care, hospice can be brought in to provide the additional services that allow the resident to remain comfortable in our home.

 

What if my loved one requires hospitalization, and then, after discharge, some rehabilitation?

We work closely with a number of home health agencies in the area. Upon a doctor's recommendation, the agency of your choice will come to the home, assess the resident's needs, and perform these services in home. Often, this is paid for under the resident's Medicare benefits.

What will happen to my loved one as she/he ages in your care?
