Maintaining Independence When Extra Care is Needed
Personal Care is designed for individuals who wish to remain independent, yet for whom staying at home has become impractical, unsafe, or just plain lonely. Personal Care at Cross Keys Village regularly exceeds benchmarks in resident satisfaction, reflecting our firm belief that one size does not fit all: Some of our residents might have limited mobility, whereas others might be experiencing from various degrees of memory loss. Therefore, our program is divided between distinct all-private-room neighborhoods which match our residents’ mobility and cognitive skills.
2017 will see the opening of our Brookside memory care residence, specialized in the care of individuals who are still active and eager for a stimulating day, yet whose impaired safety awareness makes life at home unsafe (and stressful for their caregivers). Two Personal Care neighborhoods in our original Mission Point building are also dedicated to memory care.
In each Personal Care neighborhood, you will find a full Community Life calendar, promoting active involvement with others. Many of our residents, who had been isolated when they lived at home, regain their zest for life when they join our program.
There are two features that are most important while researching and comparing Personal Care residences: First is the presence of a Health Care Center with a superior Rehab Department under the same roof (if ever needed in the future on a temporary or permanent basis). Second is a Limited Resources Program for residents who were qualified financially at the time of admission, but who may have outlived their resources while paying for their care. We offer both at Cross Keys Village – in addition to superb care and social activities in the loveliest surroundings.
Personal Care is an adaptable program: there is no entrance fee to move in, and no long-term commitment. Some of our residents stay seasonally, or temporarily as a step up following a spell in the Health Care Center. A “respite stay” while regular caregivers travel or are otherwise occupied is also an option.
When your loved one joins the Personal Care at Cross Keys Village, you have the peace of mind of knowing that additional services are provided as needed. We have several room sizes to suit your family’s budget and three care levels to better match our residents’ various abilities. Round the clock nursing and emergency response are available. Personal Care residents are warmly encouraged to participate in wellness and social activities. Housekeeping and linen laundry are included in the rate, as are all utilities. We tailor our Dining Services to suit your family’s preference. Assistance with scheduling appointments and transportation is provided. Rehabilitative Therapies can be completed as an outpatient or in the Health Care Center. Physicians call on the residents on site. Pastoral Care is a vital thread in the fabric of our community. Finally, family education is an integral part of what we offer: We will stand by you and help you see this time in your loved one’s life as an opportunity to build more treasurable memories rather than as an irreversible decline.
