NURSING CARE SERVICES
While at the senior care center, rest assured that a nurse will closely monitor your loved ones. We have professionally trained nurses specializing in senior care and dementia. We will provide:
Regular vital signs monitoring.
Blood glucose monitoring.
Medication administration and management.
Assist families with obtaining medication refills from their physician.
Weight monitoring monthly.
Provide wound care under the direction of the participant's physician.
Communication to the family of any concerns during the day.
We have specially trained caregivers to provide assistance with various tasks of daily living.
Showering can be a frightening and daunting task for some seniors. To combat these fears, we have incorporated a spa-like environment. We provide soothing aromas and mood music to produce a calming experience. We can also heat the room for those accustomed to a warmer room when the shower is completed. The last finishing touch to our shower experience is applying soothing lotion.
Numerous factors can impact seniors from participating entirely at mealtime. We assess every participant individually to ensure they are assisted in every way possible. We have specialized plates and silverware for different types of needs. We encourage everyone in various ways to ensure they are satisfied to the fullest for mealtime and will provide hands-on assistance if required.
It is important that every participant has a chance to take a break and visit a restroom. Our caregivers will assist each participant to the bathroom on a schedule based on their individual needs. We encourage and provide supervision for the process up to hands-on assistance if required.
Properly trimmed nails are essential for proper hygiene and balance. We assist with trimming fingernails and toenails and will also help with polish. We believe this is a time to be pampered, so we add a spa twist to the experience by using aromas and lotions during and after.
It is essential to maintain a healthy exercise program to stay mobile. We have partnered with a local therapy group to bring our community members services while inside the community. ______ will be able to bring you physical, occupational, and speech therapists to meet your loved ones needs.
By the time many of our community members arrive at Heart-to-Heart Senior Care Center, most require some degree of health and wellness monitoring. Heart-to-Heart Senior Care Center provides complimentary meal preparation services for everyone. By catering to the personal needs of each and everyone here, we hope to make Heart-to-Heart Senior Care Center feel like home. We have lunch catered to us by local restaurants. We provide a light breakfast and lunch. We also provide homemade snacks and hydration reminders throughout the day.
Hobbies are essential for everyone. Happiness comes from creating something to share with others. Learning new activities and participating in ones you are familiar with is a massive part of what we do. We have over 100 activities that we have created and want to have something new and fun each day. All of our activities have approval by a certified therapeutic recreational specialist and designed to give each community member a chance to participate no matter what stage of life or challenge.
COGNITION TRAINING AND EXERCISE
The brain is a muscle that needs constant exercise. Challenging yourself to learn new things helps slow the progress of dementia. We have partnered with Lumosity to bring you specialized brain games and activities to keep your brain in shape.
We bring the hair salon to you. We have partnered with a certified beautician that will provide you with all your salon needs whether it's cutting or styling your hair to manicures.
Maintaining a healthy diet is a challenging task to overcome. We provide educational sessions on healthy foods to eat and what to avoid. We also have a Registered Dietician to visit monthly and monitor every community member's weight. They will provide recommendations on how to either lose or gain weight, depending on the need.
Every stage of life is challenging, and we want to support you in finding the best route to navigate. Social workers are integral to every part of healthcare. They will help support and guide you through life's journey, and we have partnered with one of the best.
TELEHEALTH THROUGH UMC
We are proud to partner with UMC's telehealth program. Using this system will limit your loved ones' outside visits and keep them happier and less confused by not changing environments often. You will be connected with a variety of doctors and nurse practitioners to treat acute illnesses. This service will also be available for anyone who visits the community.
PHLEBOTOMY AND DIAGNOSTIC TESTS
Routine diagnostic testing is essential for every physician to monitor their patients. We have partnered with American Health Associates and Portable Medical Diagnostics to make it easier for your physician to promptly get the tests they need. We can accommodate any request, whether a blood test, a urinalysis, or an x-ray.
TELEMIND THROUGH UMC
Telemind is another great telehealth program offered by UMC. Your loved ones can connect to a physician that specializes in dementia to be able to answer questions and provide diagnostic testing.
Keeping a close eye on your loved one's feet is an integral part of the care that is sometimes overlooked. Uncut toenails or aliments of the foot can cause instability issues which could lead to falls. We will have a podiatrist to visit quarterly to evaluate and treat to ensure we have happy feet.
Denturists are trained especially for creating dentures. They take impressions of the gums and any remaining teeth. These impressions help them to design and customize dentures. After the dentures are made, the denturist checks for comfort and fit. We will have a denturist come to the community periodically to assist any community members who require assistance with their dentures.
Hearing aids can become problematic over time. It takes specialized knowledge to repair and clean these devices, and we will periodically have a professional provide these services to community members.
It can be difficult at times to manage transportation for your loved one to and from our community. We have a passenger bus equipped with a wheelchair lift for those times when you need a little extra help. (COMING SOON)
Nothing about aging is easy, and this journey requires help. We know how difficult it is to see your loved ones changing in front of your eyes, and we want to hold your hand when you need it. We support each other by lifting each other when we are at our lowest. Without community, we are alone.
Please get in touch with us today and let us show you what happiness feels like!
