Care Options | The Altenheim
Independent Living Option
The Altenheim has apartments for persons who are able to resident independently. These apartments have an efficiency kitchenette, full bath with shower and spacious living quarters with a separate bedroom. Linen service, housekeeping, laundry and three meals a day are provided at no additional charge. Recreational, social and religious services are available for residents choosing to participate.
Personal Care Option
Residents residing in personal care must be mobile, with a walker or wheelchair. They can enjoy utilizing their own furnishings or ours in a variety of private room sizes. Registered nursing staff and nursing assistants offer 24 hour/7 day a week assistance with bathing and dressing as well as other care assistance. Medications are administered by licensed staff under the supervision of Registered Nurses.
Skilled Nursing Care
Residents receive 24 hours care with Registered/licensed nurses and nursing assistants. Care is directed by our “house” physician/Medical Director or residents can utilize their own physician. This level of care is for residents who need continuous care.
Residents in this level of care may have been under an “observation” stay at the hospital and may need more therapy and strengthening before returning to their independent living/home situation. Residents may also be admitted to this level of care after an acute incident in a lower level of care in our facility or an outside facility.
Hosparus Care/Palliative Care
Residents in this level of care typically are at the end of life care. We care for the resident as well as the family in this level and offer services from Hosparus to assist the resident and family.
