Tier One Level is best for residents who are more independent and only need minimal assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, grooming, cueing, eating, and reassurance.
Tier Two Level Assistance
This level is for residents requiring a higher level of care such as residents who need assistance with managing incontinence, injectables, blood glucose checks as ordered.
Before a senior moves into Birches Assisted Living and Memory Care, our staff thoroughly assesses the potential resident's cognitive and physical health.
It's important to note that while doctor's notes are essential for documenting a senior's medical history, we do not solely rely on this information for admission purposes.
As part of our admissions process at Birches Assisted Living and Memory Care, we have our director of nursing meet with each prospective resident. We may also meet with family members, caregivers, and therapy partners to thoroughly evaluate how the prospect performs their activities of daily living (ADLs) and any assistance they may need to complete these tasks.
We will look at the possible need for assistive devices, monitoring of chronic illnesses, special dietary requirements, medication management, assistance with bathing and dressing, and other care needs.
Our assessment determines the level of care required, the services we can provide, and the costs associated with those needs. We will then use the assessment to develop an individualized, structured care plan.
