Safety of residents is a major challenge for traditional facilities because of the number of residents they have chosen to care for. Within a Brookside Home Environment, the resident to caregiver ratio is dramatically lower, and therefore falls and other safety risks are also dramatically reduced without the need for physical or chemical restraints.
The high retention rate of Brookside staff, and the consistency of scheduling, allows each caregiver and resident to bond, allowing caregivers to notice risks long before they become a danger to safety.
Home and Neighborhood Activity
Brookside Home Environments are designed is such a way as to promote activities within each individual home, and among neighboring homes, this way life is lived in much the same way as it has always been. We combine both structured activities such as bowling, gardening, and baking with spontaneous activities of going to the neighbors for lunch, sitting on the porch having lemonade, and many more. A main responsibility of each caregiver is to promote relationships and socialization throughout the day, not just at scheduled times.
