The aging of America is a well documented phenomenon, and as the elderly live longer, provision must be
made for the long term care of individuals with complex and chronic healthcare
we are committed
to helping meet this growing need and stand ready to provide a comfortable
home to those unable to live independently, as well as needed medical therapy
for those aged patients who also require sophisticated medical and nursing
Long term care residents enjoy bright
and comfortable surroundings together with the support of a nurturing
staff. All of Silvercrest's professionals
strive to maintain a "home-like" atmosphere for residents and
work to assist each in his assimilation into the Silvercrest "family."
Friendships develop quickly between residents through the recognition
of shared interests and participation in a myriad of activities. These
friendships have no boundary with respect to age or background since all long term care
residents commingle readily. Recognizing the energy
that youth always brings, Silvercrest also
supports a number of programs that attract young people and get them involved
with our residents. The benefits of these "multigenerational"
sessions can be clearly seen to flow in both directions.
Resources exist to support residents in pursuits from recreation,
to study and religious observance. And just as each patient soon comes to
feel a part of the Silvercrest family,
so too, are her relatives soon adopted as well. Parties, celebrations, club
meetings and other gatherings are all venues for family visitation and the
maintenance of those bonds of love so important to each resident.
Geriatric residents making their permanent
home here derive great benefits from sharing in the notable medical and
rehabilitative resources of Silvercrest.
Those in need of sophisticated medical therapies can often find all they
need right here, avoiding onerous trips to other facilities for care.
Among the services supported are:
- intravenous therapy
- diabetes care
- wound care
- continuous ambulatory
- speech & swallowing therapies
Care As In A Private Office
Center" is a unique environment within the Silvercrest
complex that brings comfort and efficiency together for the medical evaluation
and treatment of our residents. The Center is, in effect, a well equipped
"private physician's" office to which residents come for comprehensive
"outpatient" type care.
Under the direction of a dedicated Medical Service Coordinator, the Center
welcomes specialists from a variety of disciplines. These practitioners
are able to more efficiently serve the Silvercrest
of the coordination the Center and its staff provide. Doctors need not
seek out residents within the complex, but know that their patients will
be awaiting them in the Center, and that all pertinent medical information
will have been assembled for each visit. Residents, as well, greatly enjoy what the Center provides.
Its clean and modern design present a new surrounding and a new "set
of faces" in the patient's daily routine. The ability to "go to
see the doctor" at his office mimics times of greater independence
and fosters a comforting sense that all is well.
