Comfort & Support ... Social Services
Our Social Services Department provides services to new residents and their families both prior to and at the time of admission to aid in the transition to the nursing home environment. Our staff provides counseling and support, and strives to develop a partnership with families that will enable residents to achieve the greatest quality of life throughout their stay at Greenwood House. A social worker is always available to assist in addressing any concerns that may arise, dealing with age and loss, or behavioral functioning and mood changes.
An Enriching Lifestyle
We believe staying as active and involved as possible is an important part of overall well-being, so we have an entire activities staff who plan diverse recreational and social opportunities designed to keep residents mentally, physically, and spiritually engaged. Programs are tailored to individual preferences … A typical day may include games, music, arts and crafts, exercise programs, discussion groups, pet therapy, outside entertainment, and much more.
For those who need more individualized programs, the activity staff provides sensory stimulation to enhance the resident’s senses through smell, touch, sound, and sight.
Family members, friends, volunteers, local school and community groups, dogs and other family pets are all frequent visitors to our home and enrich our homelike atmosphere.
Specialized Memory Care
Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia requires special skills, patience, and understanding. Our team has special training and extensive experience in dementia care for residents with varying degrees of memory decline and is able to provide care in safe, secure, and cheerful surroundings.
Life within our memory care neighborhood offers residents an opportunity to live a meaningful life. Through a program of proper nutrition, programming, social activities, and surroundings, our lifestyle is designed to accommodate the cognitive and functional abilities of each resident.
As with everything we do, our goal is to focus on comfort, dignity and quality of life.
