Residential Care Homes
This model of the personal care home consists of homes from 11 to 24 beds. They are smaller and more intimate than large congregate settings yet larger than the family model homes. These “mid-size” homes allow the best of both worlds. They are larger and, therefore, more accessible. They have more staff and more diverse activities than in smaller settings. However, they are still small enough to be non-institutional in character having the feel of a “home” away from home. Residents genuinely become like family and most resident families participate fully in the life at the homes.
The senior living group home models are available in several communities in the central Savannah river and coastal areas of Georgia. Each home is managed by an experienced and capable manager who is subject to our corporate oversight. Managers are fingerprinted and record checked and ensures the same for all caregivers. Quality is measured constantly by questionnaires, family meetings, and by regular nursing visits. Registered nurses supervise care with routine visits in each home. They supervise and review all medications, service records, menus, and document progress notes on each individual. We provide no skilled nursing services. This combination of custodial care and nursing oversight results in a home where individuals can improve and thrive. This ultimately is our goal.
