A Day in the Life of a Rose Meadow Resident
Morning: Each day residents are assisted to get up and out of bed and have their choice of a whirlpool bath or a shower. They are then assisted with all their personal hygiene and dressing. As each resident is finished with their morning care they are assisted to the dining room. Breakfast is served a la carte. Mornings within the program are usually quiet and will consist of different activities throughout the house. There is a morning activity organized and instructed by our Activities Coordinator for any resident that would like to participate.
Daytime: Lunch is served family style in the dining room at 12:30 pm. We rotate through four weekly menus each season. All meals are home cooked by our staff members using fresh ingredients with a well-balanced and healthy diet in mind. In the afternoons, many of our more medically compromised residents require a rest from the active morning. Residents that chose not to rest may watch a movie as a group, spend time outside on the deck, stroll or move around the grounds or participate in activities with the staff.
Evening: Dinner is served family style in the dining room at 5:30 pm. This is a busy time in the house and usually full of conversations and laughter. Every evening the residents and staff partake in an organized activity. This is our family time, much like you would find in any household. Staff then assists residents with their nightly hygiene routine and getting them settled in bed.
Nighttime: Throughout the night, just as we do throughout the day, staff are required to complete frequent checks on all residents to ensure their safety and meet any care needs. Medication is administered by our licensed medical staff throughout the day and night according to physician’s orders.
A monthly calendar of events is distributed by our Activities Coordinator prior to the start of each month. This allows residents to know what activities, entertainment and gatherings they can look forward to that month. It also allows the friends and families of residents to attend household events and actively participate in their social lives.
