Senior Care Health and Wellness
When choosing the right Assisted Living or Memory Care community, health and wellness are at the forefront of your thoughts. Knowing that you or your loved one will be in capable hands if a medical emergency were to arise is imperative. Here at Rambling Oaks Courtyard, we want you to feel assured, knowing that we have it covered. With our emergency response system, highly trained nursing staff, and other medical services available at your door, our community is able to meet any health needs.
Our RN (Registered Nurse) and LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) are here from 8AM – 5PM, and also on-call after hours, 24 hours per day. Our nurses assist our residents in navigating their healthcare. They monitor warning signs that might necessitate medication changes or additional medical care and can communicate those to our residents’ doctors.
We also welcome third-party healthcare providers in our community. A primary physician visits monthly or more often as needed, and services such as mobile labs, and x-rays can be brought in for our residents. To keep our residents active and mobile, a local podiatrist visits quarterly to address any foot-related matters. We can bring in physical, occupational, and speech therapists as needed by a resident, and psychiatric counselors are also welcome to pay “house calls” to our community.*
For non-medical related matters, our highly trained CNA’s (Certified Nursing Assistants) are available. These caring individuals complete on-going training specific to senior care and memory care, especially dementia, and are available to assist with daily tasks as needed. Though Memory Care residents have an all inclusive level of care program, Assisted Living residents can build a personal care plan to suit his or her individual needs.
Some of the options include:
- Bathing assistance
- Grooming assistance
- Dressing assistance
- Incontinence care
- Medication assistance
- Escorting around community
*Some services available at an additional cost.
Social Life at Rambling Oaks Courtyard
Our personal relationships are usually the key to our happiness and joy in life. Here at Rambling Oaks Courtyard, not only are there plenty of opportunities to socialize, but you will soon find that the connections formed here are close-knit and result in life-enriching friendships!
With our Life Enrichment Coordinator at the helm, our residents are offered a wide variety of activities to enjoy. With our residents’ help, we create a monthly calendar of activities that cater to the interests of each of our residents. Regular activities such as musical entertainment, church service/bible study, games, or exercise class are staples, but occasionally the community organizes larger events. For example, we recently hosted a splash day for friends and family to enjoy, complete with a dunking tank. Grandchildren were excited to jump in the moon bounce house and enjoy the carnival!
Other family activities include holiday parties, such as our traditional Christmas and Thanksgiving feasts, Mother’s Day brunch, and Father’s Day ‘Beer and Burgers’ social. Though regular birthday parties are hosted for residents, families are welcome to join residents at anytime and host their own parties in our dining room.
A great way for residents to share more about themselves and learn about others is by participating in our Show and Tell sessions. Residents are encouraged to share slide shows from vacations or other family photos. This a great way to find things in common with others in the community.
Upon arrival here, our staff not only assesses physical or healthcare needs of each resident, but also inquires about personal preferences including likes and dislikes and hobbies. This helps our staff create activities that will be the most engaging to our residents, ensuring that everyone has a voice and has a chance to participate, creating new friendships here in their new home.
