We achieve our nursing care goals through all levels of the Wellness Model of Care ~ Occupational, Physical, Social, Intellectual, Spiritual and Emotional. Care goals are determined with the resident and family, as well as other members of the interdisciplinary team. Desired levels of independence, dignity, and personal preference are all part of the planning process, making each resident feel welcome and at home, while meeting their specific needs.
Emphasizing flexibility, choice, independence and meaningful connections, our GENTLECARE® approach enables residents to enjoy choices in daily living. Caring staff are on hand 24 hours a day, working in partnership with residents to individualize care. Whether it is assistance with bathing, grooming, dressing, dining, activities or medication, our focus is on respecting the privacy, dignity and individuality of residents. We do this by involving them in the decision making process, enabling them to take part in activities such as pursuing a favourite hobby or assisting with familiar routines, supporting natural wake-up times, and embracing a calming ‘hush, no rush’ approach.
Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias have the opportunity to live life to its fullest in a safe, supportive and caring environment.
