Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
Moses Lake Senior Living strongly believes in “Aging in Place”. In collaboration with Hospice and other community partners we’ve been successful in building an individualized service plan meeting the needs of the resident while offering emotional support and support to the family during this difficult time.
The Executive Director is the current Lead of the Ombudsman Advisory Council. The Council collaboratively partners with other community partners in both Grant and Douglas Counties addressing concerns of seniors in our area.
Our Resident Care Director sits on this board of the Ethics Committee with community leaders, educators, pastors, attorneys and other professionals to assist in identifying, resolving and analyzing ethical issues.
Moses Lake Senior Living Community is a proud member of the Moses Lake Chamber of Commerce. Moses Lake Senior Living Community is a proud member of the Washington Health Care Association.
Our relationship with local healthcare providers and associations in the community are ever-evolving. The staff of Moses Lake Senior Living is here to serve the community so staying in touch with community partners and assisting in meeting the needs of our community is a priority. So whether it’s attending a medical appointment with a resident to assist in communicating needs, participating in a Relay for Life event or assisting a Church in need, we keep abreast of community needs and try to assist through education, action or advocacy.
Our staff is a crucial piece to offering strong customer and quality service. We are honored to have longevity of staff and encourage them to apply for internal positions in the company. Staff is empowered with both educational training opportunities and are encouraged to participate in programs our company Brookdale has to offer such as tuition assistance, employee assistance programs, stock purchase plans and 401K. Our goal is to retain employees and give them the tools to be successful. Our motto is “Happy staff, happy residents.”
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful, Active Lifestyle
With varying resident interests and hobbies, our Life Engagement Director works on developing a schedule of events based on the input and interests of our residents. Events may fluctuate during the seasons such as residents enjoy gardening in the raised flower beds during the summer months, participate in planting vegetables in the “Community Gardens” in town, concerts in the park and fishing trips and casino trips to name a few.
Guest speakers or exercise programs such as the “pedometer walking club” are scheduled to promote residents’ mobility and strength. The Performing Arts or displays at the Grant County Fair or local museum display residents’ or their grandchildren’s art. “Grandkid craft night” is scheduled monthly and residents participate in teaching children how to complete the craft while socializing and enjoying family time. During the winter months residents participate in a Christmas carol group, jewelry making, pinochle, card games, events at the Senior Center and baking classes to name a few.
Both staff and residents are encouraged to participate in holiday planning and each Halloween a community theme is chosen and all are encouraged to dress the part. A resident theme of Wizard of Oz was chosen with a slogan of “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home, there is no place like Moses Lake Senior Living Community”.
Partnering with the Local Neighborhood Community
Because each resident comes from a varied profession, service group or religious background, our level of participation may vary. It may range from being the host location for a presentation, residents putting together Candy Grams for the Parent Teacher Association, driving the members of the Chamber of Commerce around to observe local art displayed by local artists, a pajama fundraiser for children of domestic violence or ways to support our local Humane Society. We eagerly look for ways to engage our residents into community events and to support Grant County as a whole. We look forward to giving back to the communities and to the residents that allow us to be part of their lives.
Food plays a significant piece in each of our lives. Knowing each resident has a diverse background and varying preferences, we at Moses Lake Senior Living Community invite residents to be active in their food choices and planning. Residents are free to order from the daily menu or from an “Anytime” menu for each meal. Residents participate in a Monthly Food Council, assisting in meal planning and bringing in family recipes. The staff are eager to dress for the occasion of special “theme-meals” or to assist with shucking corn for summer corn on the cob. So whether you crave rich BBQ cheeseburgers, prefer a Potato Bar with all the fixings or a more formal type of meal, we encourage you to jump in and put your taste buds to the test.
