How do I find out about activities provided for the residents?
We strive to create social programs and individualized activities to match the capabilities and needs of each resident. This also has a powerful impact in the healing process of those residents involved in some type of rehabilitation. Specific activities include: active resident councils, musical performances, current events update include reading the local papers, singing exercises, fitness activities, stretching exercise, religious meetings, outside entertainment, games, trivia, history, and volunteer involvement. We also strongly encourage families to participate with the residents in various activities.
A monthly calendar is posted to keep residents informed of upcoming events such as birthday parties, movies, musical programs, outings, special dinners, ice cream socials, and any other unique event.
Can my loved one “age in place” on the Parkview Campus?
All efforts will be made to allow aging in place including bringing in home health care services, but our goal will always be to provide the least restrictive but safest environment. This will be based on assessments of both the physician and the staff on the Campus with input from your loved one and the family.
What are you visiting hours?
We recommend visiting from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., but you are welcome to visit 24 hours a day. Please call in advance for after-hour visits to insure access as our doors are locked for security purposes. We encourage children to visit, but please provide supervision.
Can we bring a family pet to the facility?
We would love for your family pet to visit. Please remember to clean up after them and take the proper safety measures at all times. All pets are to be on a leash and must be current on all vaccinations.
What is the difference between a CNA, LPN and RN?
A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) is a health professional who works under the supervision of Registered Nurses (RN’s) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN’s) to provide a wide variety of basic hands-on resident care. CNAs perform basic nursing functions such as personal care, taking vital signs, positioning residents and ambulation.
An LPN provides basic bedside nursing care to residents under the direction of a physician or registered nurse. Duties within the scope of practice for an LPN typically include, but are not limited to, provision of basic hygienic and nursing care; measurement of vital signs; basic client assessment, documentation; performance of prescribed medical treatments; administration of prescribe medications; and performance of non-medicated intravenous therapy and blood withdrawal.
An RN’s duties may include everything a CNA and LPN carries out, in addition to administering an IV, assessment of residents, skin care, and process doctors’ orders. Furthermore, RN’s typically take on management positions such as the Director of Nursing, who is responsible for all nursing duties in the building.
