Levels of Care

Levels of Care - Assisted Living & Nursing Home

Residents and their families benefit from the continuum of care we lovingly provide.

Assisted Living 1

At this level, a resident is able to manage his or her own activities of daily living. This includes things like eating, dressing, toileting, ambulation (walking, moving about), and transfers (like moving from a bed to a chair, or getting into/out of a car). At this level, the resident is independent with these and most activities. This resident receives an annual service plan meeting. Our nursing staff manages all medication needs and bathing is supervised for safety.

Assisted Living 2

At this level, a resident may require some assistance from staffing for the activities of daily living – including assistance with dressing, occasional assistance with incontinence needs, occasional assistance with ambulation and transfers, and some help/set up with mealtime needs. A resident needing daily monitoring of a medical condition would be at this level. For example, is a person needed daily insulin, oxygen therapy / respiratory therapy, and/or wound care.) A resident needing frequent reminders to complete the activities of daily living or frequent redirection due to cognitive/memory impairments would be at this level. Nursing staff manages all medication needs and bathing is supervised. Service plan meetings are scheduled every six months and as needed to review concerns or special/medical needs. Consideration for nursing home placement occurs when a resident’s needs are greater than Level 2.
