Why choose assisted living?
Assisted Living communities like Edgewood provide residents a home-like environment that includes meals, house keeping, transportation, medication man agement, countless opportunities for so cial, physical and spiritual engagement and other assistance as needed. Residents continue living as independently as they choose, without having to worry about how they will continue to handle things like housework or grocery shopping. Residents enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks prepared fresh, in-house daily. Edgewood focuses on making dining an experience: delicious food, a warm atmo sphere and great company!
As individuals grow older, they generally have a strong sense of self, a solid foundation of support from family and friends and an understanding of what they want out of life. Aging may change and challenge this but it doesn’t mean seniors have to stop living fulfilled lives. Although there are many care and living options available, our goal is to provide the best of all these services under one roof through our new CaringEdge division.
CaringEdge offers home health services including skilled nursing, nursing assistance, therapy services (physical, occupational and speech therapy), palliative care and hospice services.
Personal Care Services (CaringEdge PCS) will be an additional offering available in the Minot area. These services include nonmedical tasks performed in seniors’ homes, such as cooking, cleaning, bathing assistance, companionship, transportation, etc.
Joining their journey with memory loss. Edgewood Memory Care is a diverse, active community, where residents live as independently as possible within a home-like environment specifically designed to enhance a sense of security and belonging. Alzheimer’s and memory loss affect an individual and their family differently and each one has his or her own journey. It is our responsibility and gift to help every resident celebrate his or her greatness. This means everyone around that individual must live in THEIR unique reality.
What are Adult Day Services? Family members who serve as full-time caregivers for loved ones with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia aren’t always familiar with the availability of the unique services and support from Edgewood’s Memory Care. Caregivers can utilize Edgewood’s Adult Day Club which provides a safe, stimulating environment for their loved one to spend a couple hours or even a full day. Taking time for themselves helps to enhance a caregiver’s overall well-being and reduce stress.
Participants in Edgewood’s Adult Day Services program receive all the same benefits as other residents: home-cooked meals, engaging life enrichment activities and individualized care and support from specially trained staff. Educational classes and support services are also available for family caregivers; contact Edgewood to learn more about our on-site Alzheimer’s support group.
Creating the best possible outcomes while moving forward. At Edgewood, we understand residents and their family members struggle with the fact that they cannot control the aging process or the changes and obstacles which sometimes accompany it. One of the things an individual and their family can control is proactively planning for their golden years and how Edgewood can help them move forward with confidence.
