Allerton House Assisted Living Offers Summer Short Stays

15809461_ladies_cookiesWelch Healthcare and Retirement Group’s Allerton House Assisted Living Communities offer Summer Short Stays in furnished apartments that provide seniors the privileges of long-term residency without a long-term commitment. Amenities and services include three delicious meals daily, 24-hour staff and emergency response system, medication reminders, wellness programs, and a range of activities, events and outings.

Individuals who elect this short-term option can enjoy the comforts of home and peace of mind. There are several different kinds of Short Stays to choose from.  

Often, adult children who serve as caregivers will opt for a Vacation Short Stay for one or both of their parents during the typically heavily scheduled summer vacation months. Other times, family members may find that a respite stay is a perfect transitional step following a parent’s hospitalization. Still other times, the Respite Stay serves as a bridge between short-term rehabilitation and a safe transition back home or to long-term residency at one of the company’s assisted living communities.

Many Short Stay residents, once having taken a “test drive” of the assisted living lifestyle, decide to make a permanent home with Allerton House, according to the communities’ marketing directors.

Falls Prevention Program at Village at Proprietors Green

thumb.thumb.FallsPreventionResidents at Village at Proprietors Green in Marshfield are participating in a new, complimentary program designed to decrease the risk of falls, build confidence in mobility, and improve overall safety and quality of life. Exercise Your Right Not to Fall is a collaborative initiative of Village at Proprietors Green and CAREtenders Home Health Care and Rehabilitation. Through this program, CAREtenders professionals visit interested residents to:

  • Evaluate the safety of the resident’s apartment and identify potential hazards such as loose scatter rugs, cords, and other items known to increase falls risk.
  • Conduct individualized balance testing in the comfort and privacy of the resident’s own apartment.
  • Recommend next steps to improve balance and safety.

If recommendations include additional intervention to reduce falls risk, Village at Proprietors Green and CAREtenders professionals coordinate services such as physical or occupational therapy with the resident, his or her family, and his or her personal physician. Residents may choose CAREtenders or the home health agency of their choice to provide these services and have them billed to their health insurance carriers or Medicare.

Falls and fall-related injuries are common among older adults. In fact, an estimated one in three adults over the age of 65 falls each year, leading to more than 2.5 million emergency room visits. Village at Proprietors Green staff, including the community’s wellness director, fitness center physical therapist, and the entire nursing staff encourage all residents to participate in Exercise Your Right Not to Fall as a simple and effective way to avoid falls, gain confidence, and live life to the fullest.

Allerton House in Quincy Celebrates Heart Month

Juicing DemonstrationIn celebration of American Heart Month in February, Allerton House Assisted Living at Hancock Park in Quincy, MA recently held a special Heart Healthy Day.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women in the United States. Additionally, new research suggests that although great strides have been made in the prevention and treatment of heart disease, it is still “under-diagnosed and under-treated” in women, according to the American Heart Association. It is estimated that more than 53,000 American women die each year from heart attack.

To encourage women and men to embrace a heart-healthy lifestyle, the 42-unit rental Allerton House at Hancock Park assisted living residence scheduled several events. A juicing demonstration and a “Cooking with Heart” program, featuring a grilled chicken salad, minestrone soup and strawberry mouse took center stage. In addition, Wayne Cushing, personal trainer, held a Tai chi class at the community. Tai chi is recognized as an ancient Chinese form of self-discipline and exercise that many people today see as a graceful form of expression with stress-reducing benefits.

“We were pleased to provide this heart-healthy series of activities designed to showcase the attention to the healthy lifestyle we promote at Allerton House at Hancock Park in Quincy,” says Kelly Richards, marketing director.

The programs were reserved for current residents and their families, and adult children and seniors who have been in the process of gathering information to help their loved ones determine when it’s time to move into assisted living. For more information about Allerton House at Hancock Park in Quincy call 617-471-2600.
