Long Term Care
A Solution When Care Over a Longer Period is Needed
At a Mission nursing home you will have peace-of-mind knowing that your loved one is safe and their daily needs are being met, giving you the ability to create lasting memories.
Mission Health Services excels in providing long-term care in a non-institutional environment, which is needed when a person requires help with their physical or emotional needs over an extended period of time. This might be due to a terminal condition, disability, illness, injury or the infirmity of old age. The need for care may only last for a few weeks, months, or longer.
We provide the services that your loved one needs while living at the nursing home, including assistance with walking, bathing, dressing, using the bathroom, managing pain, preventing unsafe behavior, preventing wandering, assistance with eating, personal hygiene and grooming, and administering medications. We also care for individuals experiencing cognitive loss, and those suffering from dementia. We routinely offer meetings with you, your loved one and the entire care team to discuss all aspects of your loved one’s care. We focus on resident centered and resident directed care decisions.
We offer individualized restorative programs which are one-on-one supervised exercise programs that assist with ambulation, strengthening, endurance, and assistance with meal service. These programs allow your loved one to participate over a longer period of time, without the concern of a time limit as seen in a more acute care setting. They increase and promote comfort, independence and dignity.
All nursing homes are required to provide activities, and with our meaningful activities program, activities are designed around your loved one’s interests. Activities are much more than BINGO and sing-a-longs. Our Certified Therapeutic Recreation Therapist provides strengthening exercises to build endurance, music programs for memory and cognition, and clubs to keep your loved one social. Resident hobbies and interests are taken into consideration when creating the activities program, while variety and spontaneity keep boredom at bay. Mission also incorporates pets, outings, and youth programs to alleviate loneliness and helplessness. Holidays are filled with tradition and meaning. Mission carepartners even provide residents with their simple daily pleasures; that one little thing that makes your loved one’s day better!
