Welcome to Woodstone Senior Living’s Care Suites!
Care Suites are for residents who need a higher level of assisted living and are designed to provide around the clock personal care. There are ten, beautifully designed suites with private bathrooms. We have developed the concept of Care Suites to bridge the gap that we perceive to exist between assisted living communities and nursing homes. Care Suites combine the best features of both: They give people the privacy of living in their own apartment, while making available higher levels of care than you’d find in a typical assisted living community.
For residents who need higher levels of assisted living, Care Suites are specifically designed to provide 24 hour, continuous care. An individual service plan will be completed designed specifically for each resident to help them regain or maintain their independence. Restorative and rehabilitative care enables each resident to do as much for themselves as they are able to do. It is important to hold scheduled and unscheduled activity programs are provided in the care suites every day to help maintain the resident’s spirit and wellbeing.
They are a direct alternative to nursing homes and they are particularly attractive to the many older people who receive intensive homecare and who feel socially isolated in normal housing. These individuals often cannot bear the institutional feel of a conventional nursing home and the loss of privacy it entails. In these cases, a Care Suite can be a positive alternative.
Our activity program is a very important part of what we do. Each day, you’ll find staff visiting with residents, playing cards, reminiscing, and much more. Many of our activities in the Care Suites are designed to the resident’s abilities. We also provide transportation to and from appointments on scheduled days. Residents can also receive help with showers and personal hygiene, medication administration, transfer assistance and escorts, laundry and linens, weekly housekeeping, and more. Residents in the Care Suites will also receive three home-cooked meals each day, served in our private dining room, or in their own Suite.
The Care Suites setting is appropriate for individuals who are recovering from surgery or illness, require concentrated rehabilitation or need ongoing health-related care. Our restorative care philosophy reinforces the healing and rehabilitation process and promotes independence. By including services in the base rate, we can assure that the needs of our residents are met.
Residents bring their own furniture and decorate the spacious apartment to reflect their own personal tastes and memories. We believe that anyone who becomes part of our community is home, and we strive to make each resident as comfortable in their new surroundings as possible.
Throughout your apartment you’ll notice a design that makes residents lives easier…lever handle door hardware, wider halls and doorways, wall-to-wall carpeting, single handle faucets, electrical outlets placed high for easy reach, high lighting level, raised television and telephone jacks. Now enter the bathroom and notice even more special touches…grab bars, walk-in showers, and higher height toilets.
Three home-cooked meals plus healthy snacks are served daily in our beautiful dining room. The Dining Services Director prepares all of our meals fresh each day for our residents. Special diets are also available, depending on individual needs. Upon move in, we meet with family members and the residents to get a sense of what types of foods they like and which ones stir memories of the past.
