Services We Offer
The SilverCrest community was developed to be able to offer customized memory care treatment plans, tailored to each resident’s ability, offering an intimate homelike setting to encourage daily engagement. We provide customized memory loss treatment plans that are tailored to each resident’s cognitive level and delivered in a warm, home-like setting of no more than 16 residents each. Our direct care staff ratio is 5:1 Daytime and 7:1 Nighttime.
The SilverCrest community was developed to be able to offer Temporary institutional care for someone on a fixed term agreement that allows families to experience Silvercrest while maintaining the current level of quality of care. Respite care is ideal when a loved one is being released from the hospital but continues to require hands-on care or when an in-home caregiver or family member needs to leave town or requires a much-needed break.
Each of the personal care homes in the Community is elder friendly and meets all ADA requirements. Residents of similar abilities are grouped together to aid in camaraderie and foster a sense of community. We take a personal interest in helping each resident manage the day-to-day requirements of their disability and, at the same time, help them preserve as much as possible.
This allows a person to receive comfort care with dignity, honor and respect while following the care plan set by the physicians. The focus of hospice is not on treatment, but on the pain and symptom management, comfort measures, acknowledgement, supporting the family, and providing the best quality of life enabling a person to live their last days to the fullest, with purpose, dignity and grace.
This approach improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual. Palliative care:
- provides relief from pain and other distressing symptoms;
- affirms life and regards dying as a normal process;
- intends neither to hasten or postpone death;
- integrates the psychological and spiritual aspects of patient care;
- offers a support system to help patients live as actively as possible until death;
- offers a support system to help the family cope during the patients illness and in their own bereavement;
- uses a team approach to address the needs of patients and their families, including bereavement counseling, if indicated;
- will enhance quality of life, and may also positively influence the course of illness;
- is applicable early in the course of illness, in conjunction with other therapies that are intended to prolong life, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy, and includes those investigations needed to better understand and manage distressing clinical complications.
