Team Cove for Walk to End Alzheimer’s!

Walk_to_End_Alzheimers

It’s that time of year again & Arcadian Cove’s team efforts are underway!

We want to raise more money this year than we ever have & we need your help.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is dear to our hearts as we see alot of people affected by this disease – and we don’t mean just the people who are diagnosed with it.  The effects on caregivers are just as strenuous as they are on the actual Alzheimer’s victim.

If you would like to help us reach our goal you can donate on the web at Arcadian Cove’s WALK page!

Every little bit helps & every little bit makes a difference!

Thank you!

Don’t Underestimate Assisted Living!

I recently encountered a published document that was somewhat condemning to Assisted Living by outlining what the author felt were limitations on what ALs (Assisted Living) can actually offer to our Residents.  At first I was quite upset, but then realized this was really a GREAT OPPORTUNITY!   I’ve outlined some ways that ALs utilize various resources to provide as many services to our Residents as possible within the regulations set forth by the Department of Aging & Independent Living!

I hope you will find this information helpful & informative, I invite you to share this article with someone you know who may be considering Assisted Living!

Sincerely, Ms. Christian Wright, Administrator

Assisted Living Communities, like Arcadian Cove, are capable of facilitating many complex medical needs for their Residents!

With the help of in-home service providers, advanced devices that promote independence, and many other available resources, Assisted Living Communities can provide many of the same services that a personal care facility can…at a MUCH LOWER COST!

 Most home-health agencies can provide services such as nursing care; physical, occupational, & speech therapies; psychiatric care; homemaking needs & more.  These services can be picked up by many insurances, including Medicare. This means that eligible Residents of Assisted Living can gain access to these services for little or NO out of pocket costs!   

With the growing popularity of Assisted Living Communities, many physicians have met the demands for in-home care. Travelling physician services offer in-house labs, x-rays, nursing care, health & wellness oversight & medication management oversight.  Again, the majority of these costs are billable to various insurances such as Medicare.

At Arcadian Cove we provide healthy nutrition, with a wide range of diets for varying diagnoses. (Diabetic friendly, glutton free, low-cholesterol, etc.)  We promote independence by assisting with certain devices that maintain health like glucose meters & dial-up insulin pens (for diabetes), medication planners & dispensers (for medicine regimens), transfer boards & bars, and other health sustaining items.

Our full-time Recreational Coordinator provides a vibrant activities program that includes daily exercise opportunities to promote physical health. Our Residents’ mental & spiritual health is also at the forefront of our daily planning at Arcadian Cove.  And of course, we strive to enrich each life with activities that are also fun, entertaining, educating  & exciting!

4 Years Here…A Letter from our Administrator

4years

I am delighted to be posting today to celebrate my 4 year anniversary with Arcadian Cove.  When I first came to work here, I honestly didn’t think I would stay; but the more I learned about the concept and watched the employees and Residents grow into a family, the more I truly loved it.

 My previous jobs were all customer-service related, but Arcadian was different.  Formerly – I would encounter a customer, make a sale, and then part ways.  Sometimes I would see them again, sometimes I wouldn’t. 

 Arcadian Cove has helped me to grow in so many ways.  Professionally, I can honestly say I’ve never had a better job.  My superiors are supportive and committed!  My direct boss, our CEO Ms. Jackie Sielaff, has taught me so much and continues to teach me new things every day.  We are blessed with an amazing staff of caring, compassionate, and loyal individuals.  These people inspire me every day with their dedication to our Residents and their quality of life.

 Instead of meeting a customer and making a sale, I am now watching the growth of a beautiful community.  Every single Resident has a story to tell and I feel blessed to be able to hear them.  When I think about how their stories grow when they come to Arcadian Cove, I hope that our employees and their neighbors at the Cove will become a fond part of their tales. 

 I never dreamed I would be in this line of work – but as year 4 rounds the corner, I now can’t see myself doing anything else.  My Residents and My Co-Workers enrich my life so much.  I am honored to be where I am and I can only hope they are as happy to have me in their lives as I am to have them in mine.

 Next month I will be excited when I can say “Happy Birthday Arcadian Cove!  I’m looking forward to many more.  Thank you for all the opportunities you’ve given me to grow & for all the love you’ve allowed me to receive.”

 Very, Very Sincerely,

Ms. Cris
