The end of life is a period in which every individual deserves compassion, dignity and respect. Prestige has a unique partnership with professionally licensed Hospice providers, who we coordinate with, to provide each individual with the medical care and emotional support they need to make the most of the time they have left with their loved ones. Our focus is to help relieve pain and other symptoms so residents can live comfortably and alert while maintaining a reasonable course of medical care 24 hours a day. We work cooperatively through a licensed provider to provide the resident and their family with psychological, emotional and spiritual support consistent with each individual’s beliefs and wishes. We honor living wills, advance directives, and we welcome the involvement of outside counselors, therapists, social workers, aides and volunteers. Visitors of all ages are also welcome to visit residents under hospice care at any time during the day or night.
More than just a calendar of events, our Lifetimes Enrichment Program headed by the communities’ Life Enrichment Director offers residents stimulating activities designed to exercise the body, spirit and mind.
Long-term care is for individuals who need assistance with the activities of daily living and frequent skilled nursing. Nourishing meals and therapeutic diets may be combined with restorative nursing and exercise programs to enhance physical abilities. Activities and events planned in consideration of each resident’s abilities and interests provide the mental stimulation that helps keep residents engaged in their own care.
Daily nursing services and rehabilitation therapies are provided according to the patient’s treatment program, as prescribed by their personal physician. Nursing services may include:
• Disease specific treatment and management
• IV therapy
• Enteral therapy
• Pain management
• Rehabilitative therapies
(physical, speech & occupational)
• Pulmonary care
• Wound management
Occupational Therapy is a treatment provided by an occupational therapist that helps individual development of physical skills that will aid in daily living, such as bathing, brushing teeth, cutting food and dressing. Occupational Therapists work with individuals who suffer from a mentally, physically, developmentally, or emotionally disabling condition. The goal is to help clients have independent, productive, and satisfying lives. In order to help residents improve their ability to perform tasks in living and working environments Prestige offers Occupational Therapy.
A medical specialty focused on relief of the pain, stress and other debilitating symptoms of serious illness. Palliative care is not dependent on prognosis and can be delivered at the same time as treatment that is meant to cure you. The goal is to relieve suffering and provide the best possible quality of life for patients and their families
This form of therapy utilizes trained animals and handlers to achieve specific physical, social, cognitive, and emotional goals with patients. Unlike people, with whom our interactions may be quite complex and unpredictable, animals provide a constant source of comfort and focus for attention. Animals bring out our nurturing instinct. They also make us feel safe and unconditionally accepted. Research has shown that pet visits can: Reduce stress-induced symptoms. Requires Less Medical Care and add years to one’s life
The treatment of physical dysfunction or injury by the use of therapeutic exercise and the application of modalities, intended to restore or facilitate normal function or development. Physical Therapy help patients suffering from disease or injury improve mobility, relieve pain, increase strength, and decrease or prevent deformity.
Even the routine daily living activities can be difficult after a hip fracture, knee replacement, stroke or lengthy illness. At Prestige Care, an experienced team of medical professionals utilize innovative approaches and an array of rehabilitation equipment to help individuals regain as much strength, balance and endurance as possible.
Our goal is optimal recovery, which means that we help our residents achieve the highest level of functionality as possible. To make this happen, our highly skilled nurses, therapists and technicians work cooperatively with the individual’s physician to implement a customized regime of treatment that may include a combination of physical, occupational, speech therapy and other nursing care.
We also believe that rehabilitative care and treatment should be delivered throughout a resident’s stay to help reduce the occurrence of injuries after they return home. We strive to duplicate as many real life experiences as possible, allowing them to practice and prepare for the move back home.
In order to help residents achieve their highest practicable level of functioning and well-being in post-acute prognosis, Prestige offers a program under the supervision of a therapist designed to achieve the desired functioning and outcome of the resident. Prestige’s Restorative Program focuses on improving or maintaining physical, mental and psychosocial functional abilities.
Most people take a while to recover from a temporary incapacity caused by illness, injury or surgery. You may be feeling better, but you may not be ready to resume your normal daily routine.
Perhaps, you are one of the thousands of people across the United States who
voluntarily cares for a loved one, 24-hours a day and every day of the year. For the well-being of both the caregiver and the individual receiving care, it’s vital that you take an occasional, temporary break.
Then again, maybe you want to check us out for a while and “experience” what it’s like to live in our beautiful community.
No matter the reason, Prestige offers a wonderful option that combines temporary residency with full access to all community services and amenities for just such situations.
The Retreat Stay Program offers:
• Affordable daily rates
• Fully furnished personal apartment
• Personal care assistance
• Resident Services Director
• Meals and snacks
• Activities and events
• Access to transportation services
Residents often require special diets, such as Heart Healthy Diets, No Added Salt Diets, or even Pureed Diets. Prestige is able to ensure that all diets ordered by physicians are served by dietary staff.
Speech-language pathologists, sometimes called speech therapists, assess, diagnose, treat and help to prevent disorders related to speech, language, cognitive-communication, voice, swallowing, and fluency. Speech-language pathologists work with people who cannot produce speech sounds or cannot produce them clearly, problems understanding and producing language, and those with cognitive communication impairments, such as attention, memory, and problem solving disorders. They also work with people who have swallowing difficulties.
Speech, language, and swallowing difficulties can result from a variety of causes including stroke, brain injury or deterioration, and hearing loss.
They teach patients how to make sounds, improve their voices, or increase their oral or written language skills to communicate more effectively. They also teach individuals how to strengthen muscles or use compensatory strategies to swallow without choking or inhaling food or liquid. Speech-language pathologists help patients develop, or recover, reliable communication and swallowing skills. Also see “Speech Therapy”.
Prestige Care Speech Language Pathologists evaluate and diagnose speech, language, cognitive, communication and swallowing disorders to determine the best course of therapy. The Prestige Care therapy program also addresses cognitive impairments that affect verbal and written communication.
Individuals with an acute illness, injury or disease sometimes need one or more highly skilled medical services and frequent assessments without all the resources and overhead of a hospital environment. Sub-acute care is the delivery of those services in a setting that allows for a better quality of life.
The individual’s unique course of care may include special services, such as inhalation therapy, tracheotomy care, tube feeding or complex wound management care. These and other services are often combined with physical, occupational or speech therapy as well as dialysis, IV therapy, and pain management for residents who require an extended period of care.
Our intensive care program coordinates the delivery of specialized services and treatment through a team approach that is lead by the resident’s personal physician and supported by other medical professionals all working together on a course of care designed specifically for them.
