When an individual’s communication is limited, knowing how to interpret an expression can provide key insights for meeting all of their physical and emotional needs.
What’s more, we embrace resident-directed care. We encourage independence, and we’re always striving to better understand an individual’s preferences.
Rather than intervene when challenges arise, we help residents seek to explore their present strengths and feelings. Occasionally this means introducing a new activity that deters from an “expression.” We’re here to alleviate our residents’ stress and guide them toward pleasure—and that only happens by having a truly personalized and relationship-based approach.
Because we believe in resident-directed care, we offer the choice between two entrees for every meal. We can also supplement nutrition with finger foods as needed.
To enhance the dining experience, team members join residents at meals as well. This helps reaffirm our relationships day-in and day-out. In addition, our community has regularly-scheduled invitations for family-style dining. Loved ones are always encouraged to visit and share quality time whenever possible!
