Allow us to care for your loved ones during the next chapter in their life
Serving St. Clair and Sanilac counties
We believe that the most important service that you will receive at our home is the exceptional quality care that your loved one will get 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The special attention to the needs and wants of our residents and the experience and patience of our staff will help make this very difficult time of transition easier for you but more importantly your loved one. Our home is fully handicap accessible including a wheelchair accessible shower. Residents have a beautiful country view from all rooms and décor throughout the home that adds a nice touch of the vintage days of old. All outside doors have alarms so that we can better monitor any resident’s attempts at trying to leave the home without our knowledge. We also have the front and backyard fenced in as an added security. Visiting hours in the home are 10am to 7pm all week (any visits outside of these times would need approval from staff).
Beyond the normal services we provide our residents we also offer you as a family member an opportunity to have a party or family outing at the home with their loved ones, the use of the outside deck/yard, second family room or dining room could be used for such occasions. We encourage family members to stop in and have lunch or dinner with their loved one (we only ask that you let us know an hour or two before so that we have extra food prepared). We do allow under certain circumstances our residents to bring in special furniture or items for their room that might help them to be more comfortable in their new setting.
Some of the activities we offer in the home are arts, crafts, board games, sewing, knitting and singalongs. Our physical exercise program involves the use some of the games on the Wii fitness machine connected to the television and we also allow our residents to walk around outside on the property with our staff. The facility is located 15 minutes north of Port Huron and is near the Birchwood Mall and many other shopping centers. The senior citizen center, bingo, movie theaters and many different churches are also close by.
We offer those residents that are interested and physically able weekly opportunities to get out of the home and go sightseeing (Port Huron has many wonderful sites including Blue Water bridges, Port Huron light house and 3 small museums), shopping or tag along while we run errand during the week. These outings even though small are just another way that we help our residents to interact with people outside the home and give them some normality in their lives (mobility is something we take for granted).
We provide 3 nutritious home cooked meals each day around a large dining room table and a healthy snack in between meals and/or at night before bed. We will manage and dispense all medication prescribed by a doctor (medication remains locked and out of reach of residents), weekly/daily washing of all laundry including bed sheets as needed and help with personal needs like showering, getting in and out of bed, help with toileting when necessary. We of course will be watching 24 hours a day for any changes in the behavior or health of your loved one (this service can sometimes go without mention but can be most important when you are dealing with elderly and all the medication and health issues that they sometimes have).
We are a private pay home and our staff are all 18 years of age or older. They are fully trained in cpr, first aid, resident rights, dispensing medication, fire safety, prevention and containment of communicable diseases and reporting requirements for foster care. Our staff all are able to follow written and oral instructions and can handle emergencies. All staff have been finger printed and have had background checks to insure they do not have a criminal record that mpose a danger to our residents.
