Moving a loved one into a nursing facility can bring about many emotions to the family members: such as grief, lonliness, or guilt. It can cause stress and anxiety for all family members. We want to help the transition into our home be as stress-free as possible.
Support groups assist the family in managing nursing home care and questions. We provide information about care plans, culture change efforts, nutrition programs, and how families can be part of the various activity and social programs in our facility. This is a great way to foster communication between our staff and residents’ families.
The Alzheimer's group ranges from three to 15 people who discuss what they're going through and how they're handling the progression of the disease. "They're a great group, very supportive of each other, with some who have attended for a very long time," said Paula Drelick, Executive Director, who promotes the Alzheimer's Association as a resource to the group.
We ask that you contact our social work team today for advice and resources to help you and your loved one manage the changes that accompany the aging process.
