As we age, our care needs can change, but that doesn’t mean our desire to engage with our friends, loved ones or community changes. To be able to remain in the community we love, while having the services we may need close at hand is key.
To meet residents’ needs, Quail Park of Lynnwood is expanding its options, with Enhanced Assisted Living (EAL) coming in July.
Providing a higher level of care, services with Enhanced Assisted Living – or EAL – might support residents who have had a stroke, Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis, for example. Some may need assistance with catheters, incontinence, require two-person transfers or mechanical lifts, or perhaps need help with eating or specialized diets.
“Our Enhanced Assisted Living is a gentle mid-point for care delivery between Assisted Living and skilled nursing,” explains Sue Rowell, Community Relations Director at Quail Park of Lynnwood. “Our team is able to provide a more personal level of care than in our traditional assisted living, and is often the best choice for families when loved ones require more specialized care services but also desire a warm, social and more home-like environment.”
The new Enhanced Assisted Living area reflects Quail Park’s true continuum of living options, from independent cottages and apartment suites to assisted living, memory care and compassionate caregiver respite.
That means that no matter where you are in your retirement journey, from active, independent living to requiring more services, you’ll find the care you need, close to home. And as your care needs, or your partner’s needs, change, Quail Park’s services can adapt, too.
“Our model allows us to provide a higher acuity of care services, while maintaining a social environment with activity-rich programming,” Rowell explains.
In addition, warm and friendly suites are located near the Care Station, ensuring prompt turnaround in residents’ needs, along with personalization of care.
Among the services provided to Enhanced Assisted Living residents that are not available in traditional assisted living are:
- Two-person assistance for all daily activities
- Hourly checks on each resident
- Call support specialized for those most at risk for falls
- Specialized care for monitoring health conditions
- Total assistance with medications when needed
- Assistance using prescribed mechanical lifts for transfers
