Integrated health care, incalculable benefits.
When you think about it, our CCRC (continuing care retirement community) provides the immense convenience of a single location. Take 3 examples:
- As an Independent Living resident, about the time you think you might be missing a beat now and then you also notice how seamlessly Assisted Living can slip into your daily life. Bingo! There’s the help you need to regain your confident, rarin’ to go independence.
- Suppose you’re injured or have major surgery. Before you get back to you Independent Living apartment home, a stay in our short-term Rehabilitation gets you ready to get back – and keeps you close to your PineCrest family. (You know they’ll bring you cookies.)
- Or suppose the help you get can’t quite keep up with your health needs. Well, you’re not going anywhere, because Skilled Nursing will get you all the services you need, delivered by the good PineCrest people you know and trust. Plus, all those PineCrest friends will still be close enough for a hand of canasta.
In short, simply because of its design, PineCrest can provide better and often more affordable care. Want to know more? This is your invitation to start a quiet conversation that can bring focus to the future health care picture.
Health Services FAQs
Start with a physician’s exam. After abilities to meet daily living and medical needs have been assessed, our professional team is better able to advise you, as well as provide information, answer questions, and help you determine the best decision for you and your family.
Very! Many Assisted Living residents are quite independent, but simply need assistance with a daily task or two (or more), which typically range from taking medication to bathing, dressing and/or help with meals, housekeeping, transportation and other everyday routines. A trained, licensed nurse and certified nurse aides are available 24/7 to provide the custom-tailored support that helps your loved one preserve an active lifestyle filled with friends, activities and family.
Dementia is the loss of cognitive ability (such as remembering and reasoning) severe enough to interfere with daily functioning. Dementia isn’t a disease; it accompanies diseases, notably Alzheimer’s. When it’s caused by disease or certain injuries, dementia is irreversible. When it’s caused by drugs, alcohol, depression, or hormone or vitamin imbalances, it may be partially or fully reversible. It’s estimated Alzheimer’s disease is responsible for 60%-80% of dementia. Alzheimer’s is a degenerative brain disease that affects the parts of the brain controlling memory, language and thought itself. Over age 65, 1 person in 8 has Alzheimer’s, which affects women more than men.
Compassionate professional support is provided from licensed medical professionals, including RNs (registered nurses), LPNs (licensed professional nurses), certified nurse aides and certified medication aides. Residents who require intensive therapies to manage well-being and health also receive custom programs that preserve their dignity and encourage maximum social interaction.
Short-term Rehabilitation is for those who need greater care while recovering from a hospital stay, and those recovering from illness, injury, surgery or stroke. Your team will include a doctor, nurse, social worker and dietician, together with therapists who will provide care, guide the rehabilitation process, and work in partnership with you and your family members.
