“Our [medical] services that we provide here on campus, we do run through a medical model, so that means we have licensed nurses on duty 24 hours a day, which is a bit of an anomaly out in the industry at the personal care level. We also only have certified nurses aids here, and we also have dementia care practitioners. Everyone is certified and has that extra piece of education, that we have brought in to make sure that we’re prepared to care for someone that comes to us, that has needs.
In our independent setting, that’s precisely what it is. You do your cooking, you do your cleaning, you go out. Here at The Park, you can have your independence. You can go out and do what you want and come and go as you please. But we’ve afforded you the supportive services that sometimes people need that they can’t get in the independent setting.”
