Professional Medical Care
You can trust that the care provided in our facility is directed by a physician. Physicians make regular visits to our facility and are on call 24 hours a day to meet the needs of our residents. Our professional team provides the highest level of care available.
A comprehensive plan of care for each resident is implemented to ensure individual goals are achieved. We have registered nurses and certified nursing assistants as well as visits from psychiatrists, podiatrists, dentists and hospice.
Our therapy staff is anxious to meet you, evaluate your needs, start you on your personalized rehabilitation program and make your stay here pleasant and productive. Our goal is to get you back to your prior level of function as quickly as possible.
We provide Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy. Your physician will decide which of these you should receive. We strive to get you evaluated your first day unless you arrive later in the day. If that is the case, you will be seen the next day. (The only exception could be a late Friday or Saturday arrival.) After your evaluation, your therapists will develop an individualized treatment plan in conjunction with your physician.
What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy (OT) helps people with disabilities to return to their lives through the use of therapeutic methods, applied and assistive technology and environmental modifications. Occupational therapy retrains patients in the activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, grooming and feeding.
What is Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapy (PT) is for patients with pain and/or movement dysfunction resulting from disability or disease. Through proper evaluation and treatment, physical therapy can minimize pain and disability and maximize functional potential. Physical therapy adds to a patient’s strength, mobility and fitness.
What is Speech Therapy?
Speech Therapy (ST) offers comprehensive evaluation and treatment for individuals who have developed speech, swallowing or cognitive problems following an injury or illness.
Culture Change and Complete Dining Services
We strive to make each resident feel as though they are in their own home while at St. James Living Center. Our staff honors resident choices and preferences by getting to know each resident and what their likes and dislikes are. We establish a fundamental relationship with each individual person to ensure that the needs and wants of that person are met.
Our home has begun a culture change journey by respecting the choices that our residents make. For example, each resident has the opportunity to make their own daily schedule by choosing what time they will eat, when they bathe, what time to wake up each morning and what activities they want to do during the day. Our facility also has a complete dining service in which the resident can select what they want to eat each day. We offer a variety of nutritious meals and snacks that residents can choose from based on their individual preferences.
Alzheimer’s Special Care Unit
St. James Living Center has a 16 bed Alzheimer’s Unit that provides a specialized program and lifestyle sensitive to the unique needs of people with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. Residents with dementia, behavior problems or mental illnesses benefit from a consistent and familiar environment that can be depended on to meet specialized needs.
Each resident in the Alzheimer’s Unit is assessed by our care plan team upon admission in order to determine the appropriate care plan. The resident will be placed on a program specifically designed to meet the resident’s special needs and to enhance their life to its fullest potential. These care plans are discussed quarterly and are revised if any significant changes have occurred.
In the Alzheimer’s Unit, the activities of daily living are incorporated into the daily activities to fully enable the residents to participate in their care. Planned activities are a short time span and are of a wide variety. Some of these activities include; ball toss, manicures, coffee time, reminiscing, walking in the courtyard, listening to music and hairstyling.
Resident safety is something we strive for which is why our Alzheimer’s Unit has door alarms and locks.
We offer educational materials on Alzheimer’s and other dementias for the family to become involved in the care of their loved one.
