There are more than 250,000 independent senior living communities in the United States, so narrowing down your choices is a major accomplishment. As you have probably figured out by now, every single senior living community is unique in what they offer to residents. And while they all have the best of intentions, they won’t all meet your individual needs.
Once you have narrowed down your search, the next major step is to explore each community on a deeper level so that you can understand if their mission and values line up with yours. At first, this may not seem as important as the amenities and living arrangements they offer. Still, to truly thrive, you need to find a senior living community that supports your beliefs and goals in retirement.
Our Senior Living Community’s Mission and Core Values
At Heritage Senior Living, we have a unique Philosophy of Care that is comprised of five guiding principles. These guidelines serve as a roadmap for all of our programs, relationships and offerings.
- Independence – We emphasize self-resilience in our programming to help residents gain confidence.
- Individuality – We customize our care programs to reflect the interests, abilities, and individual preferences of residents.
- Privacy – Every resident is encouraged to create a space that is truly their own in their apartment or suite.
- Choice – Residents are always encouraged to make their own decisions.
- Dignity – All of our staff members are sensitive to residents’ dignity.
With more than 16 locations statewide and over 2000 residents at Heritage Senior Living communities, we are dedicated to offering a consistent experience across all of our locations, so residents receive the highest level of care, support and programming no matter which of our locations they choose to call home.
Our Senior Living Community’s Commitment to Innovation
Another area of our senior living community that sets us apart is our commitment to innovation. We truly understand the importance of having open lines of communication throughout our communities for our residents, and most importantly, for their loved ones.
We use PointClickCare (PCC), which is one of the leading electronic health record software systems in North America. This allows our staff members to quickly and efficiently document all care delivery tasks electronically in real-time. Having this technology makes it easier for staff members to access clinical information when needed and makes it possible for loved ones to keep an eye on any changes in health.
Some other areas where we are focusing on technology to improve our level of care includes:
- Emergency pendants for residents
- Motion detectors to alert staff of issues
- Tablet and Wii games to improve cognitive strength
- And more
As a senior living community, we are wholeheartedly committed to guaranteeing a consistently high quality of service in all of our communities. Our approach is unique to Heritage Senior Living and we pride ourselves on offering comprehensive, individualized care for each and every resident we have the honor to support.
