Care Planning

neighborhood-roomAt the time of admission and at regularly scheduled times thereafter, our staff meets to discuss your progress and address concerns that you or your family may have. Staff may include nursing department members, social workers, dietitians, Life Enrichment Director, licensed therapists, administration, and other staff members as appropriate. We recommend that you and your family also attend these meetings to give us insight on how we can continue to be your care partners. Each resident is reviewed approximately once every three months or more often if necessary. We will send your family an invitation to attend these important care planning conferences.
