There’s no one-size-fits-all in the Van Dyk family. We will create a customized care plan and guide you and your family every step of the way.
Assisted living care, or residential care, is a long term care option that offers varying degrees of personal and medical care. The goal of assisted living care is to maintain maximum independence. Assisted living care provides individualized care and assistance in a home-like setting. To find out if assisted living is right for your family, you’ll need to first determine your specific needs and preferences. Needs might include medical attention, personal care, social interaction or help with day-to-day tasks such as bathing, cooking or driving. When you come for a tour, ask our residents if they are happy with the quality care.
Skilled Nursing Care centers, also called nursing homes, are long term, comprehensive facilities that offer round-the-clock care and a variety of services, social activities, and recreational opportunities. Today’s Skilled Nursing Care centers focus greater attention on resident needs and preferences. Professional care providers include doctors, dentists, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, therapists, dieticians, pharmacists and social workers. Talk to these care providers. Many of these talented professionals have devoted their careers to caring for the elderly and the disabled.
When we consider the number of daily activities, household chores, supervision and companionship that our loved one requires – and the time it takes to do everything – it adds up quickly. Home care allows your family member to remain in their own homes while receiving the assistance they need to help them remain independent. Our At Home services are great for individuals who wish to live on their own but require help with some day-to-day tasks.
Memory Day Care
Providing care for an individual living with Alzheimer’s or memory impairments is a full-time task for the caregiver. Social Adult day care provides full day programs engaging individuals in a variety of therapeutic and social activities that are structured and supervised by trained staff. Adult day care fosters a meaningful social stimulation and provides the caregiver with a well-deserved break in the day. Taking care of both the individual with Alzheimer’s and the family create more quality of time at home and can allow the individual to stay in their home with family.
