For many older adults, living with multiple chronic conditions can be challenging. Maintaining a variety of treatments can be overwhelming for the person with the chronic health condition as well as the caregiving spouse. Reaching out to the community for resources is beneficial, and our staff at Ebenezer Senior Living can help create a plan that best fits the needs of the person living with a chronic condition.
Enhanced Care Living
Clinicians can play an important role in educating patients and families about chronic health conditions and can connect them with appropriate community resources and services. One resource that many people and care coordinators don’t often think about is Enhanced Care living.
As part of our Continuum of Independence at Ebenezer, we are proud to offer Enhanced Care Suites for our residents recovering from illness, injury, or surgery.
We work with our residents and their families to develop personalized care plans aimed at aiding recovery safely and successfully. During the recovery process, services are provided by a trained and compassionate personal care staff that is onsite 24 hours a day.
Residents in our care suites can take advantage of a variety of rehabilitative therapies including occupational therapy, speech therapy, and physical therapy, as needed. Support services are available for those who have more specific care requirements. Whether the stay is long-term or short-term, our Enhanced Care Suites will provide the care, comfort, and encouragement our seniors need to heal.
