COMING HOME TO FREEDOM AND FLEXIBILITY
At some point in life, individuals age 55 and better no longer want the responsibilities and worries of owning their own home. They look forward to an independent lifestyle that affords them freedom and flexibility. A unique community, Deerwood Crossing is built around the concept of “aging in place.” Here, seniors can choose the level of services that meet their needs – from independent living, to supportive living, to assisted living. As needs change and services are added, residents are able to remain in their apartment and not be separated from a spouse or partner.
Life at Deerwood Crossing is rich and fulfilling. Apartments accented with natural woodwork and furnished with state-of-the-art, Energy Star appliances offer the kinds of amenities seniors have been used to in their own homes. Without the cares of home ownership, residents can come and go as they please. They can enjoy socializing with their neighbors, welcoming family and friends or participating in organized activities. The conveniently designed building offers many areas for get-togethers, community dining, working out or utilizing the resources of the business center and library.
Between the numerous amenities and experienced management, Deerwood Crossing will make the transition from one home to another a smooth and positive experience for older adults.
Our senior residents choose support services as needed from within our facility or through their own providers. We place a priority on their safety while respecting their sense of independence and dignity.
As a senior requires more assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL), the Assisted Living option is available. It brings services into a resident’s apartment so that he or she doesn’t have to move to another location.
Our Basic Service Plan includes:
• Services include vacuuming, light dusting, removal of garbage and cleaning and disinfecting of the bathroom and kitchen.
• Linen/Laundry Service
• Linens are removed from the resident’s bed and bathroom each week, laundered and replaced by staff. Personal laundry service is also available and the charge is per load.
• Medication Administration
• Medications are administered by staff daily. Medications are kept locked in a cabinet in the resident’s apartment in order to ensure security and privacy.
Residents can choose to enjoy up to two meals, lunch and dinner, each day in the dining room. Staff will bring a continental breakfast to a resident’s apartment.
Personal Assistance Service
Residents can receive personal service above and beyond the other items mentioned in the plan. This may include assistance with ambulation within the building, assistance with performing ADL including dressing, bathing or grooming.
Health Wellness monitored by a Registered Nurse
A registered nurse is on staff to assist in managing and monitoring the health of each resident. The nurse’s involvement can include conversations with the resident’s physician to clarify orders, assisting with acquiring the services of an outside healthcare provider, or monitoring the health of an individual in order to provide proactive, preventative healthcare services. The nurse is also available for blood pressure monitoring, weight monitoring and limited consultation for health issues.
24 Hour Staff
Staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to assist residents with their unscheduled needs. This provides an added sense of security and safety for residents that they cannot get in their own homes.
Emergency Call System
Residents receive an emergency call pendant when they move in. In case of medical or house emergency, the resident is able to summon staff for assistance or to contact the appropriate emergency response agency.
Diabetic residents receive blood glucose monitoring, insulin injection administration and other services related to diabetes.
B12 and Lovonox injections are an example of this service. This does not include insulin injections.
Meal Tray Delivery
Residents who have a short-term illness can receive meal tray delivery in their apartment for a short period of time.
