Nursing staff includes Registered Nurses, Registered Psychiatric Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, and Health Care Aides. Nurses and Health Care Aides are on duty 24 hours a day. The care is overseen by the Resident Care Manager. Each shift is monitored by a charge nurse who is responsible to direct the care of each resident. All Health Care Aides are certified and are expected to provide care in a kind and compassionate manner.

Nursing staff believe that each Resident deserves the very best care that can be provided in order to promote, maintain and/or restore as much independence as possible. We assess individual abilities and try to provide comfort, support and dignity for each person. Nursing staff are available to discuss care issues, either in person or over the phone.

Nursing staff will assist you, if necessary, in daily grooming, dressing and hygiene. You will be provided with a weekly tub bath and shampoo. Regular eye, mouth, foot and nail care is maintained by nursing staff.

Nursing staff are your link to services provided by other members of the health care team (i.e. Physician, Occupational Therapist, Spiritual Care, and Maintenance). Referrals for these services will be forwarded on your behalf.
