Assisted Care Services
Providing Personalized Assisted Home Care Services
Paradise Living Centers specializes in luxury assisted living care. To ensure individualized attention, we maintain a small staff-to-resident ratio (1:5), which allows our state-certified Care Team to provide personalized, focused care to all our residents.Our caregivers get to know each resident’s habits, hobbies, personalities, daily routines and favorite foods. In many cases, our staff truly becomes like extended family. In 2019, we enhanced our care services by adding Dr. Feras Aldaoud as our Medical Director. You can learn more about him and his team here.
24/7 Awake Assisted Care Team Members
Our Care Team works together to provide our residents 24/7 awake assisted care. Evening care includes scheduled monitoring every two hours. In addition, we use continuous visual and audio monitoring. We work closely with our residents’ family members to manage each resident’s health and wellbeing. We also work with our residents’ primary care physicians, or, if you need a doctor, we can recommend physicians and nurse practitioners that regularly make house calls to our home. The Care Manager is the conduit for communication.
Our Health Care Manager is onsite at each of our homes regularly to assess our residents for any changes of condition. If there are any changes or concerns, she will communicate with the residents’ primary care physician and family members. Together with the Care Coordinator, the Health Care Manager will provide support and guidance to our Care Team.
The care and compassion the PLC Team provided was just what my Mom needed. Knowing she had 24-hour care gave us much comfort and we loved being welcomed by the staff at any hour.” – Connie
Quality Care Standards & Services
Our Care Team at Paradise Living Centers undergo extensive training to work with our residents living at our care homes. Experience and training are not enough to be a part of our Care Team. We look for people that have a passion for caregiving. This isn’t just a job; it’s their calling. Seeking those with professional passion helps to ensure our residents receive the highest possible quality of care.
On Staff Nurse
Our Health Care Manager is a full-time licensed nurse that is on staff and on call 24/7, working closely with our team to enhance the care and well-being of our residents. The Health Care Manager visually assesses each resident, oversees medication administration, creates, and implements individualized care plans. The Health Care Manager is also available to work closely with physicians, family members and Caregivers to ensure each resident is as healthy and happy as possible.
Electronic Medication Management Program
Our Electronic Medication Administration Record (e-MAR) system allows us to carefully track the medication needs of each resident to make sure they receive the proper dosage, document how it is administered and the frequency at which it should be given. Each time a member of our care team supplies a resident with medication, it is recorded through the e-MAR. As part of ongoing care, it allows our Health Care Manager to also pull reports and monitor and assess each resident carefully.
Equipment & Accommodations
As residents age, they may face physical difficulties that impede daily activities. Our Care Team is not only trained to address any issues they may have, but we also make sure that we have the proper equipment to accommodate our residents’ needs. This includes a roll-in shower and a Hoyer lift, which is used to transfer residents that are temporarily or permanently unable to physically get up on their own or with minor assistance. The lift allows Caregivers to safely move residents from their bed to a chair or wheelchair, to take them to the bathroom or to other areas of the house. Hallways and doorways can accommodate wheelchairs or walkers and bedrooms and bathrooms are designed with senior care needs in mind.
Expert Memory Care
It is normal to see some cognitive impairment with aging. As many as three to 19 percent of those 65 and over will exhibit some mild cognitive decline, which can progress into dementia or Alzheimer’s, but it is not always the case. When memory loss or symptoms of cognitive impairment begin to become a concern, or impact the ability to perform daily living tasks independently, it may be time to consider assisted living care.
We have memory care experts visit each of our care homes weekly to lead engaging, one-on-one sessions with our enrolled residents. Each session is personalized to meet your loved one’s needs and abilities.
At Paradise Living Centers, our residents are able to “age-in-place.” Whether living the life of a relatively active senior, or facing a serious illness that no longer responds to treatment, we can meet their needs. For the residents in the final stages of a disease, we partner with hospice providers to offer onsite, end-of-life care. The goal of hospice nurses is to give patients a dignified and comfortable end to life. Where better to do that than in the place they call home?
