Is Long-Term Care Right For You?
Leaving your home for long-term care can understandably be a difficult and emotional process. You might worry you’ll lose your independence, miss your familiar surroundings and no longer be able to do the simple things in life that matter most. For your family, there might be angst in how you will respond to a new setting and interact with the people and environment around you.
But in many cases, long-term care is the best way to meet your increasing daily needs – across all facets of life. It’s something we’re fully confident you’ll realize here at St. Francis.
Today’s skilled nursing facilities are held to higher quality standards with higher levels of nurse staffing. They can also be a better value with a single, all-inclusive cost per day. There are also more services and amenities, and a high level of flexibility to give you the true feeling of being home.
Our team is ready to explore those choices with you and your family when home care alternatives have been exhausted.
Why St. Francis?
In addition to our beautiful campus and top-notch staff, our emphasis on person-centered care means the support you receive is solely based on your own unique needs and lifestyle.
We first sit down with you and your family members and get to know everything about you. We go over your medical and life history, your daily routines, your hobbies, what you like and don’t like, your own goals, your limitations, what makes you feel most safe and comfortable, what keeps you motivated, your nutrition and dining preferences and so much more.
Everyone is different, and that’s why we come up with an individual care plan centered on these areas. This is essential in creating an environment where you not only positively engage more in life – in both new and old ways – but one where you embrace and experience a high quality of life. The way we see it, you direct your own care.
Your safety here at St. Francis is paramount, too, with 24/7 care and support. The nursing staff is never more than a few feet away and our electronic call system ensures we always respond to anything you need in the most timely and efficient manner.
It is no surprise that many of our residents find that living at St. Francis is a preferred alternative to living alone or with family members.
