Care and Attention
Person-centered care with 24-hour staff attention and low 1:7 caregiver-to-resident ratio make a difference in the level of care and familiarity we offer our residents. Our 24 hour caregivers provide assistance with all Activities of Daily Living, (bathing, toileting, dressing, eating and mobility). Being able to offer round the clock attention is critical to our mission.
We have 24-hour assistance provided through an emergency call system that each resident wears as a pendant, as well as state of the art monitoring and security systems. The safety and peace of mind of our residents and their families is of upmost importance in our daily delivery of care.
Our senior-friendly exercise programs maximize mobility, strength and overall health. In addition, the daily activities provided by our Activities Staff offer creative cognitive fitness opportunities as well as creative expression.
We provide linen and laundry services, plus all maintenance duties and housekeeping for our residents’ rooms and common areas.
Leisure and Luxury Services
Our on-site full-service beauty salon and barber service is available separately for those who would like that special touch to personal well-being. When weather permits, our residents can enjoy our outdoor walking paths, or just a relaxing visit on the shaded patio areas.
Our licensed nurses are onsite 24/7 and assist with medication management and administration as well as supervising doctor’s orders for residents. With the service of our Director of Nursing, we cooperate with family physicians, area home-health agencies and hospice programs as residents’ needs change.
We have a Licensed Alzheimer unit with memory-care trained staff who are involved in ongoing education related to working with older adults with memory impairment to provide security, stress-management, consistency and compassion.
We employ a qualified dietary staff to ensure delicious meals that are full of flavor and variety. Our dietician-approved menus include three daily meals plus snacks in the comfortable family-style dining room, affording residents a relaxed and familiar home experience. Families are always welcome to join us for any meal. Providing meals for special dietary needs are not a problem.
We offer a calendar filled with daily events to encourage social interaction with other residents, offering opportunities to meet and know those in other River Birch homes, as well as just enjoying a card game with their house-mates. Residents are encouraged to help with baking, cooking, crafting, or any activity that they can safely do in order to feel connected and purposeful.
We provide chaperoned transportation for social activities, errands, medical appointments and other outings in our own safe, wheelchair accessible van. These services and activities at River Birch Senior Living are included for all residents.
24-hour Onsite Nursing Staff
Licensed nurses and certified nursing assistants, and caregivers are available around-the-clock every day of the year to provide supportive care, and encourage each person to remain as independent as possible.
Our Licensed Nurses manage and administer all medications for residents, and are regularly in touch with each resident’s personal physician to manage the health of our River Birch community. Having a licensed nurse on site around the clock 24/7 provides peace of mind to family members and residents.
