Dietary Assistance

Everyone’s nutritional needs are different! Serenity Gardens does not believe in one-size-fits-all meal planning. Our Memory Care Communities have small resident populations, allowing us to gather for meals in a home-style family setting. And because we offer small, intimate mealtimes, we can spend time cooking meals that fit each resident’s needs. Our team is proud to avoid the cafeteria-style dining of other homes.

Loved ones who suffer from memory problems or cognitive impairment often don’t remember to eat. Our encouraging, positive environment helps residents eat on their own terms. We accommodate specific food preferences and requests.

Medication Assistance

Helping your loved one stay on top of their medication schedule is one of our specialties. Our staff is available 24 hours a day to help your loved ones take their medications. We assess residents, build a medication schedule, evaluate their ability to swallow, and other factors. From simple reminders to pill crushing to feeding the medications, we are here to help.

Activities of Daily Living

Assisting with activities of daily living (ADLs) is one of our most important services. ADLs are basic daily tasks that are critical to our well-being, like bathing, dressing, and feeding. When a loved one has a memory impairment, it’s hard to remember how to handle these tasks. Our staff helps residents overcome these obstacles and practice ADLs safely.

Ostomy And Foley Catheter Care

Toileting Monitoring

Monitoring the quality and quantity of urine and bowel output is key to ensuring that our residents stay healthy. Our staff monitors output to assess organ functioning, nutritional deficits, hydration, and more. This proactive approach helps stop urinary tract infections, constipation that leads to impaction, and nutritional problems.

Housekeeping/Linen Service

Facilitating a clean, tidy home is part of ensuring resident wellness. Our housekeeping services ensure that your loved one’s space can be neat, clean, and home-like. Our staff remove trash at the end of each shift and make the residents’ beds every morning. Residents also receive fresh towels as needed. Our staff cleans rooms and common spaces on a rotating schedule.

Laundry Service

Along with our housekeeping services, our staff also provides full laundry and linen services. Residents can use their own linens, which we clean regularly, or use our available linens. Personal laundry services for your clothes are also available. Let us take care of washing, drying, folding, and organizing clothes.

Beauty/Barber Services

At Serenity Gardens, we believe in total wellness. Our residents are much more than their diagnosis! We make sure they feel good through pampering barber and beauty services. These services are not handled by Serenity Gardens staff, but by a third party at a minimal cost. If your loved one wants to treat themselves to a new haircut, wash and curl, or shave, then let us know.

Holistic Care

Our residents are more than their memory impairments. Our holistic care treats the entire resident, and we emphasize a client-centered approach that addresses medical care along with social, spiritual, and emotional support.

Environment – The role of the environment cannot be understated. At Serenity Gardens, we work hard to create a nurturing and comfortable atmosphere that feels like home. We offer a welcoming environment that promotes independence and lets our residents to relax.

Communication – Many homes forget to emphasize communication when caring for their residents. At Serenity Gardens, we believe that residents have the right to be included in their care. Therefore, we clearly communicate with all our residents, which is important to their feelings of self-worth and overall emotional wellbeing.

Nutrition - Nutrition is the cornerstone of a healthy life for every aging senior. Malnourishment and dehydration are common for seniors and exacerbate existing medical conditions and increase discomfort and agitation. Our personalized, homecooked meals and well-balanced diets are a major component of effective memory care.

Activity - Seniors with dementia can still live meaningful lives and do things they enjoy. Fulfilling activities and engaging in hobbies (or learning new ones) keeps seniors engaged and provides meaning and purpose during the day. Regular stimulation also wards off depression and boredom that can result in maladaptive behaviors or worsening symptoms.

Keeping Our Residents Safe

Keeping residents safe is our number one priority. Residents with dementia or cognitive deficits are often at risk, but we understand and adapt to these unique challenges.

Physical Safety & Mobility

Ensuring physical safety includes removing fall hazards, making mobility medical equipment easy to use, removing sharp objects and heat sources from resident reach, and more.

Community Safety Features

A safe community is the key to keeping residents healthy. Therefore, we conduct background checks on all our staff members, install fire and carbon monoxide detectors, add locks on doors, and increase lighting. Our building also includes proper heat and air conditioning capabilities, on-site maintenance, and staff safety training.

Environmental Safety

Seniors are often more susceptible to falling ill from infectious diseases and toxins. We limit exposure by promoting a clean, healthy environment. Environmental safety also includes promoting physical activity, encouraging good hygiene, and making food and water available.
