Our Services…We care for you – The Family Way
Your independence and wellbeing are maximized
We encourage you and your healthcare decision maker to provide input, participate and direct your care as much as possible. We work with you to develop a care plan to guide staff in the actions they need to take to accomplish the goals you set to help you attain physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. We work with you at your annual care conferences or hold a social mini-meeting to ensure good communication between you and our team.
People you may see in your neighbourhood
The team members you will become familiar with include: the Directors of Care and Leisure Services, registered nurses, licenced practical nurses, resident care aides, recreation therapists, physiotherapists, rehabilitation aides, housekeepers, dietary aides, laundry aides, cooks, maintenance workers, as well as pastoral care chaplain, pharmacist, physician, the dietitian and our Administration Team on the Main Lobby Level. We also have volunteers that visit and help with many programs.
Our doctors come to serve you in your room
We provide your medical care with a team of nine general practitioners. You will have one of our four primary physicians assigned as your doctor when you move in. Your family physician may provide your care in Laurel Place if he/she agrees to meet our standards for medical practice. Our Medical Coordinator is available as a resource for care conferences, and medication reviews if your physician is not available. The Medical Coordinator may also provide consultation if required to ensure you are receiving the best possible medical care.
Photographs of our physicians are located in the Main Lobby to help you learn your doctors’ names.
We bring many other services to you
Other services available for you at Laurel Place include a visiting in-house dental hygienist and dentist for annual check-ups and follow-up dental work, an on-site optometrist for annual check ups, a contracted occupational therapist and a qualified foot-care nurse who visits every six weeks.
For your safety we ensure that all professionals are fully licensed and they must maintain proof of required certification.
