Woodland Heights goes the extra mile

WOODLAND HEIGHTS - Linda ElderWhen you make the decision to help a parent move into Assisted Living, you expect the obvious care to be provided — help with bathing or dressing or assistance with medications. There is actually so much more that goes beyond the obvious.

Not only do we bring your Mom her medications, but we order them from the pharmacy, have them delivered to us and check them carefully.

If your Dad is not feeling well, our RN (who is in the building or on call 24/7) will evaluate him and give directions to the staff for his care. We might check his blood pressure or temperature, or we may bring a special meal to his room, help him walk to the bathroom if he is feeling weak. We call his doctor if needed and help transport him to an appointment. And we call you to let you know how he is doing.

We remind them of activities they enjoy, and take them out to lunch or shopping. We will even store their cash in our safe until they need it. If they want a snack at midnight, someone goes to the kitchen and fixes a sandwich or cuts a piece of their favorite pie.

When you come to visit, instead of providing care for your loved ones, you can finally spend that elusive "quality time" with them.
