As you or a loved one ages, there are certain daily tasks that may become more challenging. We believe there is a balance to be achieved between a need for support and a desire for independence. This is where a Personal Care option at Cedarhurst can help.
At Cedarhurst, our goal is to surround our residents with expert support, especially around those aspects of daily life that have become more difficult. With exceptional care and assistance from our talented and caring staff, activities such as social outings, wellness programs, and visits from family can become all the more enjoyable.
Our approach to Personal Care is shaped by respect and understanding of the unique lives of our residents. Together, we work with you, your family, and your physicians to determine what aspects of your life you want or need additional assistance with. Our trained healthcare professionals use their expertise and genuine respect for our residents to serve you in ways that encourage independence, dignity, and individuality. We want nothing more than to foster your sense of happiness and protect your health and safety while doing so.
Our goal is to always help provide the freedom to live your life, your way. Relaxing by reading the paper on the porch. Attending a local ballgame or cultural event. Participating in life-enriching activities. Taking advantage of our wellness programs. Or simply enjoying warm friendships with caregivers, staff and fellow residents.
We also understand that the assurance of safety is another primary concern. Expertly trained and certified caregivers are always present and backed by extensive safety features, including 24/7 emergency call system, handrails, grab bars, proper lighting and flooring, fall prevention and much more.
With Personal Care at Cedarhurst, you can rest assured you’ll always be treated with dignity and respect, surrounded by the expert care and assistance tailored to your individual needs.
Levels of Care
With supportive care, our staff focuses on delivering in-person reminders to complete daily tasks, such as brushing teeth. These brief, friendly interactions don’t include supervision or hands-on assistance. This minimal level of care is designed to ensure regular, healthy habits are maintained, not overlooked.
This moderate level of care is more attentive and supervisory. It includes in-person reminders such as those included in our supportive care, plus observation from a staff member to ensure daily tasks are completed. Some respectful, one-on-one assistance is also offered when requested or when an activity is seen to be challenging.
This maximum level of care puts the responsibility of daily tasks in the hands of a trained, encouraging staff member. They will offer any help that is needed to maintain healthy habits from head to toe. Delivery of this care is highly responsive and sensitive to the importance of independence, with support when a resident has the desire to perform tasks on their own.
When you live at Cedarhurst, we’ll make a medication management recommendation as part of your levels of care assessment.
