A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) is a health professional that works under the supervision of Registered Nurses (RN’s) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN’s) to provide hands on resident care, specifically with activities of daily living (ADL’s), vital signs, ambulation, and positioning.
An LPN provides basic bedside nursing care to residents under the direction of a physician or registered nurse. Duties within the scope of practice for an LPN typically include, but are not limited to, provision of basic hygienic and nursing care; measurement of vital signs; basic client assessment; documentation; performance of prescribed medical treatments; administration of prescribed medications; and, performance of non-medicated intravenous therapy and blood withdrawal.
An RN’s duties may include everything a CNA and LPN carry out, in addition to administering an IV, assessment of residents, skin care, and processing doctors’ orders. Furthermore, RN’s typically take on management positions such as the Director of Nursing, who is responsible for all nursing duties in the building.
Our primary concern is that your loved one feels comfortable here at The Living Centre and that their needs are being met. You should feel secure and at ease with our staff, particularly those providing direct care. If you have any concerns or praise for our staff, please feel free to contact our Administration and/or Social Services department. They will be able to address any apprehensions you may have regarding any particular staff members.
An Ombudsman is an advocate for residents, they are specifically there to be a voice for the residents and their concerns. To be clear they are NOT employed by the facility, which means they will not tell a facility what to do but they will be around periodically monitoring how we care for resident concerns.
For skilled nursing, due to room size restraints, we limit visitors to two at a time. Arrangements can be made in advance for larger group visitation.
During admission our Dietary Manager or Dietitian will discuss special needs and food preferences. The meals are prepared by our kitchen staff and special attention is payed to serve food that is appetizing and flavorful. The menus follow all medical diets and specialization prescribed by the dietitian and physicians.
There are alternatives to each daily menu so that you have choices. If you wish to not have the main item on the menu for the day please let your CNA know so that they can pass the information along to the Dietary Manager and they will try and accommodate your needs. Our Dietitian will monitor all nutritional data and alert you to any changing needs
The Living Centre’s Business office handles all financial and billing matters. If you have any questions please talk with our receptionist about making an appointment with our Business Office Manager.
We do have you meet with an Admissions Coordinator during your admission process. This coordinator will guide you through all of the paperwork that is required as well as the rules and regulations that are involved with your specific pay source.
Here you will find respect for the individual and a value for life. We are a continuing care retirement community, with a focus on individualized service, where and when you need it.
