I am/was a resident of this facility

I really like this place. It is clean and the staff is friendly and happy. My brother really likes this care home. He helped me choose A Brand New Day.

We almost did not go in to A Brand New Day. All the rooms were shared, and the people were not doing anything. Some were just sprawled out in chairs, laid back with their mouths open. They were out of it. However, the staff was very friendly, treated us well, and took us through the whole thing.
Provider Response
Thank you for taking the time to visit us. We appreciated the opportunity to give you a tour and take your feedback to heart. Our residents who have more advanced dementia do drift off to sleep in their chairs and we realize that does not present a good impression. At other times, they are engaged in activities as we do have a full time staff member who is solely devoted to activities. We are sorry our community did not meet your needs as all of our private rooms are occupied and we only had a shared room available. We would also like to thank you for your kind words about our staff. We wish you the best in your search to find just the right fit for your loved one and would welcome you to return at any time if you wish to take a second look.

My wife has been a resident at A Brand New Day for six years. I couldn't ask for a better care. She has had wonderful compassionate service. I visit her daily.
Provider Response
Thank you Fred! We appreciate your time to leave us feedback. We love that you visit daily and your devotion to your wife moves us deeply. You and your wife are such an asset to the A Brand New Day family.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My husband was a hospice patient/resident at A Brand New Day. I couldn't have asked for a better, compassionate care than he received. Everyone took excellent care of him and me while I was visiting.
Provider Response
Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. You have touched on an important point that others may not consider when making the choice to select the right community when you said that "everybody took excellent care of him and me..." We feel that not only the residents, but also their family members should receive care and support throughout this journey. We strive for excellence in care and are so happy that you have recognized our devotion. It was an honor to care for your husband.

Excellent and compassionate care!
Provider Response
Thank you for your kind words. We feel that our caregivers truly make the difference in helping our residents navigate through the challenges of living with dementia and dealing with aging. Caregiving is a difficult job but not for those who are passionate about brightening the lives of those who live at A Brand New Day. Still, your recognition of our excellent and compassionate care further motivates us to keep up the good work!

Questions about A Brand New Day

What ongoing training does the staff receive in dementia care?

We have partnered with Community Care Options to take advantage of their excellent training program. All staff receive 8 hours of training annually through their program. This follows initial training of 12 hours of dementia care. In addition, we have monthly staff meetings where we share insights on the latest developments on dementia care. Staff share tips and tricks that are successful with our individual residents, as well as triggers to avoid.

How many staffers are on duty in the daytime and overnight?

We believe delivering top notch memory care requires a bigger investment in staff rather than fancy foyers. We have 3 shifts of staff 24/7. Five are on duty during the day, plus our Wellness Director and our Administrator. There are 4 in the evening and 2 between 10:30pm and 5:30am.

What programs or activities does A Brand New Day offer to keep residents engaged? How does the staff engage residents' long-term memories?

We employ a full time Activity Director who delivers a variety of activities, both in a group and one-on-one setting. Activities include physical movement, arts & crafts, cooking, photography, games and parties. We have weekly excursions to enjoy the many cuisines offered by local restaurants. Groups visit our community to sing, dance and do bible study. We have seen great success with playing music from their prime to trigger memories. Our residents also respond remarkably well to viewing pictures on the Internet and looking up their childhood homes on Google Earth using an iPad.

Who assesses residents' health and cognitive functioning? How often is that assessment repeated?

Our Wellness Director who is completing her LVN degree and our Administrator who has 20+ years of experience with hospitals and long term care team together the resident's physician and other health professionals to assess resident's health and cognitive functioning. The assessment is repeated annually or sooner if needed when there is a change in condition.

What techniques does A Brand New Day use to support memory care residents during mealtimes?

Residents dine together in small groups based on compatibility. Staff sit with those who need prompting or assistance with eating. We serve nutritionally balanced meals based on a carefully crafted menu which offers a variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables and plus proteins prepared by our cook who has been with us for 8+ years. Recognizing that resident's appetites and thirst may no longer be robust, we encourage beverages throughout the day and provide high quality protein/low sugar supplement drinks. We accommodate dietary restriction and cater to their food preferences. Finally, we have fun with food and enjoy ice cream, sweets and home-bakes goodies.

How does A Brand New Day keep residents' families informed about their loved ones' health?

Over the years, we realize there are many different approaches that families appreciate depending on their location, availability and preferences. We establish communications protocol as part of the move-in process. We welcome family members to visit and participate in activities as often as they like. Some check in with us on a daily or weekly basis via phone. We also use more modern forms of communication such as email, texting and Facetime for those who are not in the vicinity. Family members are welcome to call and we bring the cordless phone to wherever the resident is at the time. We of course will place an immediate call if there is a health or any other kind of emergency. Our philosophy is that there should be no surprises - family members are well informed of what is going on.

Describe the neighborhood around A Brand New Day. Is it located in a residential neighborhood, a business district, a rural setting, or other type of locale?

We are located in a quiet neighborhood within city limits on a cul de sac with very little traffic. Our location is close to the Veteran's clinic as well as many shops, restaurants and medical offices.

Is A Brand New Day affiliated with a hospital if more care is needed?

Residents may choose the hospital the prefer for their care. We are licensed to have any of the hospice agencies in our area deliver care for our residents, so it is rare that some one must be relocated in the course of aging.
