Assisted Living

Activities of daily living (ADLs) refer to the common, everyday tasks people learn to do to become self-sufficient. The simple term for daily activities include bathing, eating and dressing. Every person must learn them to remain independent and healthy. As people age or become ill, the body and mind loses dexterity, balance, motor skills and the brain’s keen awareness of the body’s signals. For this reason, as people age, they need help from other human beings to accomplish them.

Individual Service Plans

At Serenity Gardens Seniors we use an Individual Service Plan (ISP) approach based on the the resident’s daily care requirements. Before move-in, a resident and their family meet with our caregivers to develop a comprehensive, customized care program based on the individual’s interests, needs and desires.

A care plan evaluation is key to quality care and the strategy for how our caregivers help the residents. It lays out what type of care and the time increments administered by each caregiver. A regular assessment of the resident’s care will be done and revised as needed. We gather information about how well the resident is able to care for themself. Our caregivers at Serenity Gardens Seniors will measure all the resident’s functional abilities: how well a person walks, talks, eats, dresses, bathes, sees, hears, communicates, comprehends, and recalls.

The assessment also defines a resident’s habits, activities and relationships so that our caregivers can better assist the resident in living comfortably and feel at home. If a caregiver finds a problem during the care assessment, they can determine its root cause. For example, medications could produce poor balance or could signify weak muscles or ill-fitting shoes, or a urinary infection or an ear ache. The assessment determines the cause so that proper treatment is given by our caregivers.
