Referring a Patient to Assisted Living
As a healthcare provider, we know your patient’s health is your top priority. That’s why when a senior’s health begins to decline from preventable factors, like malnutrition or falling frequently at home, it may be up to you to help introduce a healthier and safer living solution.
Whether you’re the family doctor conducting a routine checkup or a nurse following up after a hospital stay, your assessment of your patient’s health and mentality is essential in recommending the best care path for their future.
When it may be time for an aging individual to consider assisted living options, your role as a healthcare provider can give them the assurance and understanding they need to make an informed decision.
We provide a caring, safe and secure assisted living community where seniors can live a relatively independent lifestyle but also receive support with certain daily activities. These activities may include bathing, dressing, medication administration, mobility and more. Our trained associates are on hand to help our residents perform these tasks safely, while still respecting their independence.
Each Brookdale resident receives a personal service plan specific to their individual needs. In addition to that plan, we can assist with:
- Medication assistance and review
- Incontinence management
- Coordination of lab and diagnostic tests
- Arrangement of rehabilitation therapy services
- IV antibiotic therapy
- Bolus intermittent tube feeding
- Nutritious meals and special dietary needs
- Thickened liquids, mechanical soft and pureed diet
- Recreational and social opportunities daily
- Transportation assistance to/from appointments
- Respite stays
Our assisted living communities also provide excellent accommodations, as well as an active and social environment where seniors can meet people in the same stage of life.
Innovating new and better ways to enrich the lives of our residents.
At Brookdale, we offer much more than a place to stay — we offer a place to live well. Our residents are recognized by our associates as individuals; encouraged to lead lives with a sense of purpose; and to maintain connections with people and interests meaningful to them. Ever passionate about enabling those values, we are constantly innovating new and better ways to enrich the lives of our residents.
Choosing the Right Community
At Brookdale, we will listen to your patient’s needs, discuss potential solutions and options, and work together with you and your patient to help determine the best care path. We’ve already done this for residents in more than 1,000 retirement communities, delivering a wide range of innovative programs and services.
