Housekeeping

IT

Our System Administrator is available to assist residents with their technological needs. He is also responsible for the Real-Time Location System, which is the resident monitoring procedure currently in place. All residents have a call bell bracelet with a button; when they need assistance, they press the button, which sends a duress alert to employees’ iPods. The employee then knows the resident’s exact location and can respond to them immediately.

Personal care

Ambulatory and long-term care units have one or more caregivers on the floor each shift. Caregivers are present to help residents with bathing, toileting, dressing, eating, and any other daily living task they need assistance with. Caregivers are only a click away; they carry iPods that receive alerts directly from residents’ call bell bracelets, so when residents need assistance, they need only press the button on their bracelet, and a caregiver will appear.

 
Physical rehabilitation therapy

Physical Rehabilitation Therapists are on-site five days per week to assist residents with physical therapy. The PRTs conduct exercise classes twice per week and Zumba classes once a week.
