A True Feeling of Home
Although Ruby’s Home at Anderson Mill is a Type B Assisted Living Home (License #131205), it more resembles a large family house. The lack of signage is by design to help convey the feeling of being part of a family. All of the rooms are private, with some having adjoining bathrooms. Because of the home’s small size, attendants can truly ‘attend’ to the resident’s special needs. Daily blood pressure, pulse, and blood sugars help us track the current physical status of our residents.
Professional, Experienced Staff
At our Anderson Mill home, staff meetings are held monthly on-site. The meetings are actually in-services, designed to acquaint the staff with issues that affect our residents. Our staff discusses topics such as signs of Alzheimer’s, Hospice care, and general safety issues that need constant review.
Besides monthly meetings, caregivers are encouraged to ‘weigh in’ on any any issues of care that they may have. This open forum allows the caregivers to participate in discussing changes in our residents’ health status, the reason for changes in medication orders, including possible side effects. Not only does this assure that the actual caregiver is current with new doctor’s orders, it allows a sharing of information among the attendants, thus allowing the high quality of care to continue.
