Answer – Is family support available

 

Placing a loved one in a facility is many times difficult for both the resident and the family. Social Services staff is available for support and reassurance during this stressful time. A Caregivers Support Group meets monthly and is available to family and residents. A Resident Council is also available and meets monthly allowing residents to voice their opinions, concerns, preferences and compliments to Administration and staff.

Social Services staff also assist in discharge planning when the resident is ready to leave the facility. We provide referrals to appropriate agencies and community services, order necessary equipment, and coordinate all related activities to ensure a safe and pleasant discharge.
