What kind of health plan can I expect?
Your unique care plan will act as a road map to accomplishing your individual goals. While we will use our specialized training and assessment skills to guide you and offer professional advice, the plan is oriented to your special needs and preferences. Our first care plan meeting will occur shortly after your arrival and scheduled so that you and your family (if you choose) can attend. We encourage active participation and input into your care plan, as it will be designed to suit your specific needs. Once you’ve signed off on your initial plan, you and your health team will meet as regularly as necessary to discuss, track, and evaluate your progress and any measurable outcomes. As the patient, you (and your family) are always able to direct and modify your treatment to assure your goals and health are maximized.
“Health Team” definition: Your health team includes you, your family, professional nurses, the nursing assistants who care for you, the dietary director, social worker, therapeutic activities professional, and therapists (physical, occupational, speech) that you and your physician have determined will be helpful.
What are food options available at Spruce Point Assisted Living?
The dining experience at Spruce Point Assisted Living is one that not only provides nourishment, but also a sense of personal fulfillment. By incorporating locally farmed produce whenever possible and fresh seasonal ingredients into each menu item, residents enjoy a home-style level of dining that isn’t typical to this setting with as many made-from-scratch entrees as possible. We understand that food is so much more than sustenance, and because of that knowledge, we want our residents to wholly enjoy each meal.
Our dietary team has crafted a menu that is always robust and full of nutrition, and with the guidance of a seasoned, licensed dietician, also one that is accommodating to any food restrictions our residents have due to diet, allergy, religious, or personal preference.
We view this as your home and, as such, you deserve the quality, taste, and presentation that you would expect from your very own kitchen. While our meals are served at regularly scheduled times, residents can request snacks from the kitchen at any time – because, sometimes, there’s just nothing better than an ice-cold glass of milk and a cookie before bedtime!
Our dietary team takes this responsibility very seriously. We look forward to feeding you!
