Assisted Living

Assisted Living at Longview

Assisted Living suites are located on the top floor of Longview. There are 60 suites, each with a furnished living area including a small refrigerator, sink and a private bathroom with a walk-in shower.  Assisted Living suites have three emergency response pull-cords:  one in the living area near the bed and two in the bathroom. Resident Aides (RAs) trained in first aid and CPR are on staff 24-hours a day, seven days a week, to respond to resident emergencies, supervise medications, and assist with showers, whirlpool baths and laundry. A Registered Nurse (RN) and/or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) is on duty and on-site at the residence 40 hours per week.  In addition, a Registered Nurse is on-call and available for consultation seven days a week, 24 hours a day. A Registered Dietician and social worker are available during business hours for evaluation, admission and discharge information, case management, counseling and assistance with problem solving.

Recreational activities are scheduled daily. Residents have the use of the library, greenhouse, craft room, auditorium and chapel as well as the pool and exercise room (under supervision).

Assisted Living residents must be essentially independent with activities of daily life. This means that a resident needs to be able to feed, toilet, ambulate, transfer and dress him or herself. Resident Aides assist with showers twice a week and a whirlpool bath once a week if desired. Residents may use assistive devices or equipment (such as walkers and/or wheelchairs) as needed to maintain their independence.

Three meals in our beautiful dining room are provided daily, along with snacks. Resident Aides will remind residents when it is time to eat, but the residents need to be able to get to the dining room on their own. An RA is present while residents are dining to provide minimal assistance and to respond in an emergency.
