Committed to Continuing Care

Personal Care

We are committed to providing continuing care to our residents as their needs increase.

Personal Care offers direction and assistance with activities of daily living while promoting maximum independence. Staff assists with personal grooming, bathing, medication administration, housekeeping and laundry services. Glucose and blood pressure monitoring, injections, and other nursing services are offered.

Residents may receive Personal Care services in the comfort of their apartment as needed. An assessment will be completed to obtain health information from the resident, family members and the primary care physician. Personal Care services may be added or deleted to a resident’s care plan depending their needs.

We offer a menu of individual services rather than automatically charging an all inclusive fee for services not needed. This gives residents choice and makes living here affordable.

Residents will have the peace of mind knowing Sarah Reed is able to accommodate their changing needs.

A Memory Support Unit (Zurn Pavilion) is available for residents with dementia and memory impairments who require a secured area and increased supervision.

The therapy I received for my knee replacement surgery was great! I stayed in the Skilled Nursing Facility and everything was just great. Having a private room was so important to me.

Never did I think I could like living in a nursing home but I really do! After a heart attack and broken hip, I can no longer live alone. The staff here is so helpful, and my room is very comfortable! I especially enjoyed the physical therapy I received.

When we walked in and saw the bright, spacious apartment we knew this was the place for us! We love the view from our apartment. Everyone here was so welcoming and made us feel right at home!
