Care homes, also known as adult care homes offer personalized service to small groups of adults. These residential homes provide lodging, meal services and assistance with daily living activities. There is always staff and care providers at the home 24/7. Some, like Rosa’s can be lock down making it safer for memory loss resident and psychiatric residents.
Assisted living housing is a long-term care option that provides personal care support services such as meals, medication management, bathing, dressing and transportation and does not require 24/7 care and can be more independent.
At Rosa’s we work diligently to make sure our residents are placed where they belong. Sometimes, residents stay for a short term and get balanced on their medications and behaviors and can go back to their families, or a different living environment. We have had some of our clients be here for a temporary time and then move to Semi assisted living environments. We call that graduation and we are always proud when someone gets an opportunity to actually have behaviors and medication controlled enough that they can live in an environment that gives them more interdependence.
By using a holistic approach to mental health and well-being our residents tend to move towards more independence. Our Urban therapy is just an example of our residents being stable and able to be out and about in the community. Art therapy that involves cooking is yet another way to help our residents prepare for some culinary skills and they enjoy it.
A group therapy setting is yet another holistic approach to ensure our residents are communication and able to have what they need heard and addressed. We are proud that with the combination of wonderful service providers, and our skilled and trained staff, that we can offer an environment that people can graduate if they choose to.
It is always difficult to say good-bye and good luck to them, but we find ways to catch up and make sure they continue doing well. At Rosa’s we are always proud to know that our services can help provide our residents just what they need.
