During this time, it’s important to go above and beyond to ensure the health, safety and happiness of our residents, and at Kingswood Senior Living, that’s exactly what we do. With an array of health care services, a person-centered approach to care and so much more, we can provide residents, their families and loved ones with complete peace of mind.
“Here, we provide residents with a full continuum-of-care, all on one campus. With Assisted Living, Memory Care, Short-term Rehabilitation and Long-Term Skilled Nursing, we can ensure residents have access to the high-quality care they need, whenever they need it,” says Mary Murphy, Administrator for Kingswood Senior Living. “Our caring health care team is trained to provide this high level of care, while being attentive to our residents’ individual needs and desires.”
“However, our care goes beyond providing the essential services residents need,” she states. “We also employ a person-centered approach to care featuring a number of special programs, therapies, interactive software and more. This is the core of who we are and just one of the reasons we’ve been consistently recognized as one of the best in the nation. In fact, our management partner, Life Care Services®, was recently ranked Highest in Customer Satisfaction among Senior Living Communities by J.D. Power in the following categories: Resident Services and Activities and Community Staff. Best of all, this honor comes from the people who matter most: Residents, their family members and friends ranked our management partner #1 in every category.”
Going Beyond Health Services to Provide High-Quality Care
In times like this, it’s crucial to create a connection. Everyone is a little more worried, misses their friends and family, and can tend to feel more isolated, so creating a connection and going above and beyond is even more important than ever. In fact, Brooke Blevins, Activities Coordinator states that although the world feels a little scary right now, our efforts here at Kingswood are truly boosting the morale of the entire community.
“The one-on-one attention is enjoyable for the residents and the themed days we are hosting are a welcome break from the norm for the residents and our care team,” she states. “Each day, we are building connections and reminding each other that we are all in this together.”
Here are just a few of the many ways Kingswood Senior Living’s health care services are supporting their residents while creating joy each day.
- Creating one-on-one personalized activities
Our team knows how hard it can be to be isolated from your friends and families; this is why we are taking resident interests, preferences and favorite activities into account so we can help to brighten their days and prevent depression. From reading books aloud, art projects, building with wooden blocks, hand massages and manicures to one-on-one puzzles, trivia and chair exercises, we are helping them stay connected to everything they love.
- Finding new ways to connect with family and loved ones
We know that not seeing friends and family isn’t easy, so we’re going beyond the traditional ways of connecting to create new avenues. Each day, our team helps to facilitate virtual visits with family through Skype, FaceTime and Zoom, and while this often helps them be able to better connect, we are also finding other creative ways. From visits outside residents’ windows, doorway bingo on Fridays and more, residents can enjoy their friends and family while still remaining socially distant. We are also sending photos of our residents holding positive messages to their loved ones, so families know their loved ones are safe and cared for.
- Providing dedicated support
For residents who are struggling, we are offering them the support they need and deserve. With one-on-one chaplain visits by phone and virtual weekly scripture, we are providing residents with spiritual reassurance and connection while strengthening their faith.
- Connecting and socializing through themed days and spirit weeks
Our team and residents can both use some fun, so we’ve developed an array of events to help get everyone excited! We’ve held staff parades that residents can watch from their villas, apartments, balconies and patios, treated residents to a variety of happy hour drinks and tasty treats and dressed up in a multitude of themed outfits to make residents smile.
We believe that what sets us apart is the time we have invested and are investing in getting to know our residents. This information has allowed us to personalize our interactions with them, tailor activities to their wants, needs and lifelong interests, as well as how we incorporate the staff into their daily lives and activities.
