Summer Gardens Residential Care Facility for the Ambulatory Elderly will be a community-based living and care giving facility established to serve the needs of our rapidly increasing elderly population.
Residential care facilities have existed in various forms for decades. Over the past twenty years, most states have developed licensure requirements as a means of standardizing the quality of these facilities.
Summer Gardens will comply with all licensure and Title 22 requirements. The facility will focus on providing services which promote independence in a safe and pleasant environment.
As the elderly struggle to stay out of nursing homes and hospitals, they seek help with food preparation, laundry, and housekeeping. As an alternative to nursing home placement, Summer Gardens will provide housing and assistance to its residents, including meal preparation general and special dietslaundry, linen, housekeeping, and personal care.
Appropriate staff will assist in recreational activities.
Staff will also arrange physician appointments and coordinate transportation. Elderly men and women frequently express a desire for basic companionship or the need for assistance, but prefer not to impose on family members. Concerned family members may be forced to acknowledge that it has become increasingly difficult for loved ones to take care of themselves and their homes.
Summer Gardens will provide needed services to adults 60 years of age and older who require assistance to remain safely independent. Summer Gardens will be able to accommodate eight residents, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The facility will be staffed 24 hours a day with qualified employees who are trained to respect the individuality and promote the dignity of every resident. While there are other residential care facilities in the area, Summer Gardens is the only one owned and operated by a Masters-prepared Registered Professional Nurse.
My fifteen years of nursing experience include the start-up and management of a Medicare-certified home health agency, and the management of a private home health services branch office.
Additionally, I have been on the staff of Andrews Hospice as an on-call advisory nurse for two years.
Both relatives and residents will feel confident that the appropriate level of care will be provided, along with monitoring and supervision.
As a professional nurse, I am a credible and competent link to the physician. I am qualified to make nursing assessments and able to communicate findings to physicians as appropriate.
The elderly population in this country is increasing. The elderly are living longer and requiring alternative living arrangements. RCFE's are fulfilling a need.
The loan will also provide beginning capital for lease deposit, leasehold improvements, insurance and furniture. The Aaron County location chosen for Summer Gardens is important because the elderly will want to continue to live in an area familiar to them and families will want their loved ones close enough to visit regularly.
The primary users of residential care services are men and women who cannot live safely in their own homes, but do not require the full-time skilled nursing care provided by convalescent hospitals. The targeted client market for the services provided at Summer Gardens RCFE is comprised of people who are 60 years of age and older.
Of the 34, people in Aaron county aged 62 and older, 6, are already aged 80 and older, with the other 28, nearing age Many of these elderly adults are single or widowed individuals who may have outlived other relatives and friends. If they are left alone at home, confusion or forgetfulness may render them unsafe and may affect their ability to care for themselves.
However, with supervision and minimal assistance, these elderly will be able to maintain dignity, remain safe and independent, and conserve needed funds for future medical care. In addition, state and federal funds need not be used to provide care for these elderly at a level much higher and much more costly then they require.
Residents and families who choose Summer Gardens will do so because of: The nursing experience and expertise of the owner The high quality of care provided The safe, comfortable, and home-like environment The locality, which makes visitation easy The peace of mind which comes from keeping loved ones out of nursing homes Presently, the 36 residential care facilities located in the Aaron County area cannot meet the needs of that portion of the 34, elderly residents who are already age 62 or above and in need of some degree of assistance.
There are waiting lists at most of these facilities. Reports from the County Conservator, Rehabilitation Hospital, and Acute Care Hospital discharge planners show that there are not enough residential options for people who are unable to live alone but not ready for convalescent home care.1 Sample Church Disaster Plan DISASTER PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE For First United Methodist Church Highway 17 Hampstead, NC () Approved June 21, A plan designed to help the church prepare the physical.
