“It takes a village.” That’s the concept behind our award-winning Hand-In-Hand© Care Program. That’s why before we provide any care, we have you share your loved one’s life story so we can learn about who they are. We gather information about their family, their accomplishments, their likes and dislikes, employment and volunteer contributions— their life story allows us to design our care plan, and build their day around what brings them joy. We then team you up with one of our direct care team members, and together we work Hand-In-Hand© to meet the progressive needs of your loved one—providing you with communication and support about their care throughout the day. You’ll see this demonstrated as you begin to receive pictures emailed or text messaged to you with progress and successes as we work through your loved one’s care plan each day.
Proudly displayed in your loved one’s studio, this one page quick reference guide gives our staff a snap-shot of our resident’s preferences, dislikes, quick facts, and conversation starters. Our proactive care team uses this guide while providing care with your loved throughout the day.
We’ve teamed up with LifeShare™ Technologies to create a more comprehensive storybook filled with photos, videos, and recorded messages to enhance interactions and make each resident’s day the best possible. Each resident is given their own email address that allows family and friends to share photos from anywhere in the world with their loved one. These are saved in their electronic memory box and viewed as a slide show on the TV monitor throughout the day.
IT’S A FAD – FAMILY ACTIVITY DAY
Our residents look forward to this event every month. Our Family Activity Days (FADs) are themed parties with therapeutic benefits. From Fat Tuesday to The Kentucky Derby, 4th of July to Christmas. Every resident plays a role in planning, preparing and decorating for family and friends to enjoy the festivities. So be on the lookout for your invite to the next FAD.
