SMCH has a wide
variety of support services available to our residents and their families,
including but not limited to:
Transition & Sociability:
Our team is here to help. We encourage socialization and relaxing
with fellow residents, family, and friends. Personalized room decor is
encouraged to provide a familiar atmosphere. Social services and staff
are ready to assist in any way. On-going support and referral sources are
available. Our workplace is someone else’s home where love and caring
are openly shared.
Care Plan Meetings:
Staff from all departments will meet with family and resident (if able),
within 2 weeks of admission and quarterly to discuss the residents
care, progress, needs, answer questions and gather information from
each other on caring for the resident. You will be informed of these
meetings in advance.
Our dog provides lots of love and companionship, while many love to relax
with our fish, watch and listen to the birds in one of our aviaries or
observe the antics of the outdoor squirrels. Residents form strong bonds
with our live-in animal friends.
Families of our residents meet to discuss ways in which they can work together
to develop programs to help improve the quality of life for all residents.
Together they work to develop methods of recruiting volunteers and help run
some programs, or hold fundraiser to purchase equipment they feel would help
benefit the residents, improve quality, or provide an activity they may want
for the facility. It is a meeting of your peers and can help you emotionally
through the transition of placing the resident into a new environment. All
family members are encouraged to attend. We listen to all suggestions and
comments from the Family Council. Together we can do what we cannot do alone.
