More detailed description:
As an Assisted Living Community, Sunnybrook Assisted Living allows for residents to live independently in an apartment-like residence while still having access to assistance with daily living through the preparation of meals, medication administration, light housekeeping duties, and laundry. This is an ideal living situation for seniors who are in the middle ground of not being requiring the more intensive care of a nursing home or CCRC, but still requiring some level of assistance on a daily basis. This type of community is normally less expensive than other types of more intensive care (e.g., memory care). Best of all, Assisted Living communities like Sunnybrook Assisted Living can give you the peace of mind in knowing that your loved one is being cared for while maintaining a level of independence.
Sunnybrook Assisted Living is a Nursing Home that is designed to provide intensive and specialized care for patients 24 hours a day. The type of care in this facility is generally designated for acute or rehabilitation from a serious illness such as a stroke, broken bones/joints, and/or major surgeries. The 24 hour staff provides residents with nurses, LPNs (Licensed Practical Nurse), and CNAs (Certified Nursing Assistant). Nursing homes are designed to cater towards multiple types of patient care including short-term rehabilitation for surgical recovery and long-term medical supervision services.
It is possible to find a nursing home like Sunnybrook Assisted Living with unique programs, such as dedicated care for people suffering from Alzheimer's or similar health issues. Some facilities also offer temporary care, which can offer a much-needed break for family members caring for someone who is sick or disabled. When looking at nursing homes like Sunnybrook Assisted Living, it is important to get clear comparisons. Medicare ratings offer a good starting point -- each nursing home should have a rating on a 5-point scale, which is publicly available (and listed on this site in the "Quick Info" section above). Determining eligibility for Medicaid and Medicare will also be vital, as most facilities offer several different payment options, along with tools such as long-term care insurance, to make paying for future care easier.
Sunnybrook Assisted Living provides specialized care for seniors with Alzheimer's, Dementia, or significant Memory loss. The physical design of the community provides safeguards for residents who may wander (e.g., circular floor plans), as well as caregivers specially trained to help those suffering from dementia or memory loss.
Sunnybrook Assisted Living specializes as a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF). This SNF primarily focuses on providing high quality nursing care or other related services for patients and residents who need medical or skilled nursing care. Other services also covered include rehabilitation for injuries, disabilities, and/or patients with illnesses that require additional assistance that can't be provided at home. As a skilled nursing facility, Sunnybrook Assisted Living also caters to patients who need short-term surgery rehabilitation care or long-term rehabilitation that requires extended supervision. Though not a requirement, SNFs are typically associated with or attached to hospitals.
Compassionate hospice care is also available at Sunnybrook Assisted Living which will provide your loved ones and family members with high quality end of life care, as well as family support during such tough times.
