ElderHouse is a certified medical model adult day center. A nurse is on staff four days a week to provide medical monitoring to all clients and special attention to those who need it. An ElderHouse staff nurse works with each client’s physician to carry out the doctor’s orders, including monitoring weight and blood pressure, medication administration, glucose testing and wound care. Based on each client’s medical history and condition, a plan of care is developed to ensure maximum benefit from our services.
Our staff includes certified nurse’s aides to assist in all levels of personal care. From basic supervision to hands-on assistance, our staff provides clients private aid with grooming, dressing and toileting. A one-to-one shower program to assist those who have difficulty bathing at home will soon be returning, as well as monthly hairdressing services for a small fee.
Our clients rave about our food. Prepared on-site, our meals cater to the special needs of our clientele, including diabetic, low salt, low-cholesterol and soft food diets. Coffee and toast each morning, a complete lunch at noon and late-afternoon snacks are served each day.
