Assisted Living Services
We don’t just talk about providing the highest level of compassionate care…our entire
business is designed around this philosophy. We schedule 2-3 times as many caregivers
as most Assisted Living Facilities our size and larger. What does that mean to
you? It means that you can expect faster service for your loved ones, even during
busy times. With the help of technology, our nurse call system and two-way radios
also help to speed up our response time by making our staff more efficient. Staffing
at these levels also means that your loved one can often ‘age in place’ under most
circumstances as their health declines and their needs increase. We offer 6 levels
of care and several other higher level services for people with specific needs.
Each level of care and other services has a great deal of detail about what they
include to ensure that the cost of care matches your expectations
(comeby for a tour or
request a brochure for more information).
Dining Program - We employ three chefs who do an extraordinary amount of
‘scratch’ cooking and baking. This allows us to have a much better control over
the ingredients going into our meals, both from a health perspective and because
of allergies/dislikes. We have three gardens and numerous fruit trees & vines on
our property because 'freshly picked' foods and spices always taste better. We welcome
our families for join us for breakfast, lunch, or dinner every now and then…we never
charge for this because it makes our home feel like your home.
Assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) - We provide assistance
with grooming, dressing, toileting, bathing, dental & denture assistance, hearing
aid assistance, and even dining assistance for those that need it. We will also
provide medication management, from inventory to ordering to assistance to residents
while taking their medications, so you can rest knowing this is being done per physician
Transfer & Ambulatory Assistance - From stand-by assistance for minor stability
issues to 1or even 2 person transfer assistance, we can help. If a resident is
no longer able to safely assist with transfers with two caregivers on a consistent
basis, we’ll have them evaluated for using a hoyer lift. This type of transfer
takes an extraordinary amount of time throughout the day by two carefully trained
caregivers. This is one of the higher level services that we can provide for those
that need it to keep them safe.
Resident Activity Program - Our daily program is designed to engage our resident
and stimulate their senses. We bring several paid musicians each week and some
volunteers because music is so important in our residents’ lives. We also offer
a variety of crafts, games, an afternoon Movie of the Day, social events, and of
course…prizes for our weekly Bingo winners. We have an exercise therapist that
gives classes several times a week and our staff leads classes on other days. Our
Beauty Salon is open every Friday, allowing our residents to spoil themselves with
a set-and-style, mani/pedi, or a variety of other services provided by Sharon, the
stylist. We don’t charge Sharon for the salon space so she is able to keep her
prices really low.
Housekeeping and Linen Services - This is something you can expect every
day and is included in our cost of care. We will provide basic housekeeping daily,
linen services when needed, and deep-cleaning services once a week. Laundry services
are also provided in the basic cost of care, but we take a bit further…we don’t
mix our resident’s laundry with other residents. We spend less time looking for
missing socks, blouses, and shirts and our residents like knowing when their laundry
is done every week.
Other amenities included in the cost of care at Roses & Ivy - Free cable
television and wifi internet services available for all residents. Bring a smart
TV and you can use our Netflix subscription free of charge. Electrical, water/sewer,
and garbage utilities are also included at no charge. We also never charge for basic
hygiene items, such as tooth brushes & paste, denture tabs, shampoo & conditioner,
sanitary wipes, hand soaps and lotions, toilet paper, deodorant, facial tissue, and
more. We provide light bulbs and batteries for remote controls also. Why do we
provide all of this at no extra charge? Because the last thing we want is for our
families to be running all over town shopping each week.
Transportation Services - We will coordinate and schedule any transportation
you need using local transport companies. We can also provide transportation using
our van with or without the handicap accessible ramp for appointments or family
events. We can also arrange to have a care companion accompany a resident if they
need assistance. There is an additional cost if we provide transportation and/or
companion services, but it gives families greater flexibility...and our costs are
about half the cost of a local transport company.
