What Makes Us Different!
Our Nurse Call System
Corporate-Owned vs. Family Owned Communities
Lake House is a family owned and operated assisted living facility. The benefits of the owners of the property also being the operators (i.e. Administrators) of the community are the dedication and the compassion they have for the building, their devoted staff and the residents and family. The Moore family commit themselves full heartedly to the enrichment of their resident's daily lives including but not limited to their personal care, nutrition, leisure activity, and health. Unlike Most Corporate owned facilities, the Moore family is the CEO and Vice President of the business yet are at the community every day and involved in every aspect of each resident's delivery of care. They are very accessible, on call 24/7 to be of service to any changes, concerns, comments or compliments to be made!
Our Levels of Care
Lake House does NOT consider you a liability - we treat you and consider you like a member of our family. We take pride in our devoted staff and our goal to provide the highest level of care necessary with our well-trained and caring staff and allow those to continue their lives as they progressively need more care at the Lake House community.
Lake House currently maintains a licensure (Extended Congregate Care) which allows residents to age at home and for the staff to provide a resident a higher level of care unless the resident is in need of continuous nursing care which our staff and home health companies cannot provide. This additional license provides flexibility with assisting residents to another level such, as but not limited to, two person transfer; maximum assist with eating, wheelchair bound, bathing, dressing, etc.
Our Memory Care house continues the Lake House community goal to provide optimal high level of care with the well-trained, caring in a safe and secured setting. We promote residents to continue their lives with our Lake House Community even at their last moments. We work proudly with Hospice Organizations which allow residents to stay comfortable at our community under their care and efforts.
Most Assisted Living Facilities limit the amount of care they provide residents. This can mean facilities can even request the resident to move to another facility which can provide a higher level of care.
The pendant or watch is linked to the resident so wherever the resident may activate the button, the staff will be able to identify the person as well as their location within the facility on their mobile device. This is quite effective when a resident has fallen in a hallway without any witnesses or spectators around to call for help. Response Care, when activated, will be able to notify staff of the resident's current location for a quick response.
Many other facilities have older, out dated models for nurse call systems, mainly used in skilled nursing facilities. Such systems have light indicators outside the resident’s room and a beeping sound to notify staff. Others have pull cords in resident’s rooms which are linked to beepers or cordless phones but only indicate which room is calling, not the resident’s name or able to communicate with the device. These are not effective methods for residents to communicate with staff both for simple requests and for emergency’s. Many facilities don’t have a call system at all! In fact, any type of call system in assisted living facilities is not required. We feel this system gives peace-of-mind to residents and their family!
State of the Art call system located in the entire Lake House Facility to provide security and protection for our residents and rapid responsiveness from our staff in emergency situations. Response Care, located in each resident's room, can be best described as an intercom device. When activated by the push button on the room cord or resident’s pendant (necklace or watch), communication can occur between the staff member and the resident in real-time!
Whether the resident needs a glass of water, assistance to the bathroom, or is in an emergency situation, with response care, the resident will be able to directly and effectively communicate information to a staff member for a quick response.
