One of the most difficult decisions one can be forced to make is whether to take a loved one out of their home and put them under the care of someone else outside of their home.
Maybe you have been the caregiver to your loved one and feel overwhelmed. Board and care will let you enjoy your loved one more because you’re no longer stressed out and overwhelmed from being a caregiver. Now you can be the daughter / son / family member you’ve always been, get your life back, and rest well knowing that your loved one is being taken care of.
Maybe your loved one needs help with ADL’s – Activities of Daily Living. Bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring in and out of bed, continence, and feeding. Or they struggle with IADL’s Instrumental Activities of Daily Living – paying bills, cleaning the house, cooking food, socializing, transportation outside of the house etc. Seniors who are not able to properly take care of themselves tend to show a more rapid decline than seniors who are properly taken care of. If your loved one is considered a fall risk, in the elderly population, falls are the leading cause of fatal injuries. When seniors need help with ADL’s and IADL’s, it is time to look into some kind of board and care / assisted living / home health care / hospice care / memory care. Signs may be not taking medicine, messy house, poor hygiene, frailty, falls, forgetfulness, unpaid bills, leaving the stove on, depression, isolation, etc.
No. This is a home environment, and we want to make it like your home. You late sleepers can sleep in, like you did at home.
We offer a high staff to resident ratio. In our 6 bed facilities we have at least 1 caregiver for every 3 residents not including our administrator. It’s a home-like environment and your loved one won’t be just another number in a large institutional environment. We have the same consistent staff almost every day that are familiar with your loved one.
No. We partner with companies that come to our facility, so you don’t have to go anywhere.
Unfortunately, at this time we are not able to accept Medicare or Medicaid.
