Ask any nursing home resident where he or she would rather be and the answer is always the same…home. Even when the old family place has been sold and the physical structure is no longer available, everyone wants to go home. It’s more than a building, it’s more than being with the people and things you miss, home is about care and attention… and about love.
The Home at Emanuel Medical Center is a nursing home. It’s a place of care and refuge for the elderly and the disabled; people who can no longer care for themselves and who require constant medical supervision. Our medical care is absolutely second to none. Our staff…with a ratio of more than one staff person to each resident…tends minutely to the medical needs of our residents. Diet, medication, fall prevention, exercise, mental stimulation; every protocol for the highest possible quality of life is rendered without exception.
Even better, our residents are mere steps from Emanuel Medical Center’s Emergency Department. Fully staffed 24/7, 365 days a year, the hospital‘s E.D. is on constant standby to intervene in any medical emergency. For our residents and their families, this means a sense of security and the knowledge that an Emergency Physician’s care is seconds away…faster than an ambulance can respond to a call.
But the care at The Home is much more than medical supervision. It’s the kind of care you would give your own loved one. Attention to individual needs. Patient listening and understanding. Stimulating activities and shopping trips. Fun and entertaining events designed to include the residents’ families and friends. Resident and family involvement in planning and issue resolution. All of this …and more…make The Home a very special place for its residents and its residents’ families; the people who have so hopefully and reluctantly turned over the care of a mother, a grandfather, a wife or husband to us.
The more? In a word…love. You sense it when you walk in the door. You feel it in every resident/staff interaction. You see it in the tender care given to the often helpless; day after day, week and week, year in and year out. It comes from a culture of nurturing fostered by decades of enlightened administration. And it comes from the sure and certain knowledge that our residents are also our friends, neighbors and relatives.
