The opportunity to cultivate (or showcase) talents can be immensely rewarding. In fact, research suggests that seniors may actually experience increased creativity. We provide as many opportunities as possible for residents to explore new interests or re-discover hobbies.
Branchlands offers over fifty programs weekly such as bridge foursomes, needlework clubs, dance classes, board games, and water coloring. Programs are designed to encourage engagement, physical activity, and psychological well-being and maximize autonomy and a sense of accomplishment. Staff is always on hand with a supportive attitude and a friendly willingness, whenever assistance is needed. This “person-centered” approach supports whatever level of independence a resident is able to maintain—while, at all times respecting privacy and preserving dignity.
Health and Wellness
Each resident’s health and wellness is our primary concern. In addition to assistance with dressing, bathing, and other activities of daily living, staff provides kind, compassionate, and competent care. A full-time Registered Nurse and ’round-the-clock staff nurses ensure immediate attention to medical needs, and an on-site physical therapist works to restore mobility and keep residents as flexible and active as possible. Our medical team has developed a comprehensive Fall Prevention Program and Memory Care staff have mastered specialized Dementia Care Training. A structured Fitness and Exercise Program is designed to keep residents active and healthy. All staff participates on a regular basis in training and quality improvement programs to ensure residents receive the best of care.
Our on-site medical office is available to visiting doctors, as well as a podiatrist, dentist, psychiatrist, and other healthcare providers. We have made arrangements with a local pharmacy to provide medications in a timely and personalized manner. We can also assist with arrangements for outpatient physical, occupational, and speech-language therapy.
