Transitioning to Long-Term Care
Recognizing that your loved one is no longer able, or safe, to be at home is the first step. We want you to know how hard this decision is, but we are here to help during this transition.
Tips for moving to Pleasant View:
– Schedule a tour to view our facility – meet some of our staff members, ask questions, or even sit down for a meal!
– Bring items that will make your loved one’s room feel more like “home”, such as pictures, cozy blankets, or a favorite chair.
– Talk with staff about activities that your loved one enjoys doing. Life Enrichment staff offer both one-on-one and group activities.
– You are invited to participate in care plan meetings for your loved one. These meetings are a good time to ask questions about your loved one’s stay. The Nurse Care Coordinator, Social Worker, Dietitian, and a Life Enrichement staff member typically offer input.
– If your loved one has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, The Alzheimer’s Association provides helpful information on the subject. You may also speak to our social workers or floor staff who work with residents with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia on a regular basis.
