Personal Care

We put the personal care and comfort of our residents above all else. This includes the assistance we give them with the tasks of their everyday lives, including ambulating, transferring, feeding, toileting needs, dressing, bathing, oral care, and general hygiene. '

Upon admission, a personal care plan is developed for each resident and integrated within case management services.

The personal care plan reflects an individual resident’s needs and routines prior to admission, and is based on discussions with the resident, family members, physicians, and other healthcare providers involved in the wellbeing of the resident.

The Care Plan is routinely updated based on nursing assessments done by onsite staff as the resident ages in place.
