The Health Center - Roanoke Campus
Compassionate, individualized care on our Roanoke campus
We recognize that the decision to move a loved one into a long-term care facility can be difficult. Our goal at Richfield is to make this choice easier.
Richfield has now opened an innovative, resident centered facility at The Health Center – Roanoke Campus. Short-term Rehab on this Mecca Street campus is the first in the valley to offer advanced respiratory therapy.
To further enrich the lives of residents, long-term care on The Health Center – Roanoke Campus has adopted the household model of care with all private bedrooms. A full kitchen lets residents enjoy meals and time around the table.
Putting the residents first means they are empowered with the choice of when to wake up, when to eat, and when to bathe.
The residents and team utilize learning circles, neighborhood get togethers and family councils that communicate the desires of the residents who live in these new homes. Also available are two memory households with certified dementia practitioners and specialized programs that include gardening, music and access to the courtyard.
The nursing style is different as well, with the team members meeting the patient’s needs first. The household team includes a clinical and household coordinator, homemakers and certified nursing team members who share responsibilities of managing the household. Team members work in one household, and were cross trained to perform housekeeping tasks, assist with resident personal needs, or cook a meal.
Along with the nursing style, the physical setting and layout flows in a new direction. Each household will have a front door complete with a porch, mailbox, and doorbell. Just like at home, visitors ring the doorbell for admittance, where they will find a large cozy living room with comfortable furniture for lounging and watching television along with private bedrooms for every resident.
The social changes create a climate that encourages decision making. The community can decide to have a party, adopt a pet, or create an activity. They will have a budget to buy special treats and the food available will include items they enjoy. Each household will have a culture that reflects the personalities of the residents, much like a family.
Richfield Living is excited to be the first skilled nursing facility in Roanoke, VA, to offer this model of care in skilled nursing. Call Cheyne Finnicum at 540.924.0100 for more information.
