We take a look at one facility aimed at providing service for your loved one with tender loving care and dignity, putting pride back into senior health care.
So your loved one is in need of a facility during their rehabilitation transition back to good health; or maybe your parent, grandmother, aunt or uncle has become too frail and is unable to manage all of their own day to day needs and affairs. Most families try to take care of their aged loved one, sometimes splitting shifts of care for the elder family member with the help of a spouse or sibling. In today’s very busy and complicated post-modern world, usually both spouses are working full time to meet their own household needs; in some cases, still have to manage their own children’s health care and education.
You try to partner with your siblings in caring for grandma or Uncle Joe, however your siblings now reside further away from their former childhood home, leaving few or no one to care for the aged in your family. You even resorted to hiring an assisted living nurse to frequent the love one’s home on a weekly or daily basis. It turns out your loved one is very particular and sometimes become frustrated with the level of care provided by the assisted living nurse; sometimes because they are not as well trained about your loved one’s conditions or they are not properly skilled in taking care of people with pride and dignity.
So now you turn to the internet or look up in the phone directory, in search of a nursing home, assisted living facility, rehabilitation center, or memory care unit, in hopes of locating a center that you feel comfortable will provide the level of care for your loved one that you would expect for yourself. After a few tours and visits of the traditional facility; you have to make a decision of where to place grandma or even your own parent, until they either get well enough to return to their home; or find a more permanent setting they call home.
What you have seen so far is far from something you can call home. Usually very sterile and industrial appearance, you come to realize the ideal of a stereotypical senior facility serve you right. Long white hallways, with little or no décor; minimal staff, takes minutes to locate; and when you do find a staffer; your questions go unanswered because they are not as qualified to care for your loved one as you are. The one thing you can count on is the unfriendly nurse who makes no personal connection, which rolls their cart from room to room, administering medications as prescribed by the patient’s doctor. Yes that seems the choices you have for grandma; where you must chose the worst of evils; a place for grandma to just be until her health takes a direction for better or worse…
