Is your setting appropriate for someone who just needs reminders but is otherwise independent?
Yes, SeniorCare Homes offer a real-home setting with 5 to 8 residents. Our homes are warm, friendly and comfortable, and we encourage people to remain as independent as possible, for as long as possible. If someone wants to get something to eat or drink, they can do so. Our homes foster an endearing atmosphere where residents treat one another like family. That being said, each residence may be home to individuals who require very little care, needing only simple reminders to take medication, to others who require extensive care because of advanced stage dementia, Alzheimer's or Parkinson's. We invite you to come visit and tour one of our homes to see if it's a good fit for you or your loved one.
Will my loved one have to move again?
The great thing about SeniorCare Homes is that we offer all levels of assistance. Our Care Specialists are trained to deal with late stage disease and end of life care. We're incredibly proud of how our caregivers work to create a calm, loving atmosphere for everyone when the time comes to say goodbye. We use hospice support and have doctors on-call 24/7 to provide a continuum of care so that residents never have to leave their residence unless they choose skilled or aggressive treatments such as feeding tubes or ventilators, which require a skilled nursing facility.
Can couples live together in a room?
Yes, rooms for couples are available and we can take couples who have different care needs or different disease progressions. A discount applies to couples living in the same residence making this an affordable option.
Are residents allowed to bring pets?
Pets are welcomed at SeniorCare Homes on a case-by-case basis. Family members can bring their pets to visit, and the staff often brings their own pets with them for the day. We also have Pets for Life bring dogs in each week. Studies show that “pet therapy” is highly beneficial to seniors' well being.
Can you accommodate special diets?
Yes, our Care Specialists prepare all sorts of diets including low sodium, pureed, soft mechanical, and thickened liquids. We create a weekly shopping list, taking into account what each resident needs or has requested, in addition to what menus we have planned for the week. That way, folks get to enjoy some of their favorite foods (within reason) each day.
What if my loved one requires skilled nursing?
Residents may leave to receive necessary treatments at a skilled nursing facility. We hold their room and schedule physical and occupational therapy upon their return.
Do residents have access to computers?
Yes, we allow residents to have their own computers. Plus, all of our homes have an iPad and WiFi (available to both residents and any guests or family members who come to visit); one residence has a computer lab.
