Comforts of home with the support of the community
At Carlton Village, the first, and most essential, priority for us is the care and safety of our residents. Every family home in the village has trained caregivers present 24 hours a day who know each resident and their individual needs. Unlike some larger facilities, we offer a 1:5 caregiver to resident ratio. Residents receive regular checks and needed personal care day and night to insure comfort and satisfaction. Staff is certified and trained to offer assistance with all daily needs such as bathing and oral hygiene, or incontinence issues. Grooming assistance is available through our on-site beauty and barber shop. Housekeeping and laundry service is offered to each resident.
Our professional caregivers take great pride in ensuring each home is a place their own family would be comfortable. At the direction of our nutritionist, they prepare delicious home-cooked meals and snacks in each kitchen with attention paid to individual appetites and dietary needs. We encourage residents to request their favorite foods to be included on the menu. Assistance with eating is available, as well as more easily managed foods if needed.
Medication is carefully timed and regulated by our staff. Daily medications are prepackaged by a pharmacist to avoid mistakes and regulated by our staff. Assistance is offered with administration of finger stick blood sugars and insulin injections, when needed. Concierge medical service is available with a private medical examination room onsite, allowing residents to avoid the difficulty and stress of traveling for routine doctor visits. For residents that require or prefer it, we provide transportation scheduling and assistance to and from outside appointments. We can also arrange for various alternative care such as massage or acupuncture.
As in any active household, we celebrate many regular social events and activities to enjoy, including birthday parties, music, crafts and exercise. Often, special performers are invited to entertain our residents and add a little novelty to life. Holidays especially are always observed and enjoyed. We also encourage residents to have family and friends visit with them frequently to enjoy their time together. Visitors and residents are welcome to spend time sitting or walking in the peaceful courtyards or to leave the grounds with their families, when requested.
We take safety of our residents very seriously. Every resident is provided with a personal assistance call button pendant that will summon help to them whenever it's needed. All hallways and doors are extra wide, designed for walker and wheelchair accessibility. All of the floor surfaces are even and smooth with non-slip surfaces to prevent trips and falls. The bathroom areas are equipped with safety grab bars for support and ease of transfer. The shower rooms are all equipped heat lamps for extra warmth, roll-in showers with seats, and hand sprayers. All areas of the house are protected with fire sprinklers and each bedroom and hall provided with smoke detectors. Additionally, all bedrooms have fire resistant doors and walls for added protection.
