When a resident chooses to make Sylvan Crossings their home, they meet with an interdisciplinary team that includes their families. Together we assess the services that are needed.
Residents are encouraged to bring their own furniture so they feel more at home. Each suite is spacious, has a 24-hour monitoring system, a full bath, individual thermostat, and an emergency call system.
Most residents appreciate routine assistance with personal care, such as bathing, medication monitoring, and dressing. Residents with walkers or wheelchairs enjoy mobility assistance. Incontinence care promotes independence and helps retain dignity. Cueing assistance for memory loss is important for many people. Optional services include on-site hair and nail care and assistance with transportation to offsite locations.
Menus for meals, made from scratch, are thoughtfully planned by our staff dietician. Residents have three meals in the dining room, and snacks are available all day long. A private dining room can be arranged for visiting family and friends.
We manage medications, including ordering and dispensing. Nurses provide regular consultations and assessments and regularly review medications.
Daily exercise is offered both for individuals and groups. Recreational programs such as games, crafts, and music are provided. We offer assistance with writing correspondence and reading. Private areas are available for family gatherings.
Respite care is offered when space is available. We also provide hospice care.
We know how difficult it can be when a loved one experiences memory loss. Currently, two of our homes — located in Stevens Point and Fitchburg — are designed for residents with advanced Alzheimer’s and/or dementia.
Each home is designed to maximize a resident’s independence and mobility. Highly trained staff promotes residents’ safety, health and happiness.
We customize leisure activities and exercise to meet each resident’s abilities and preferences.
