Questions about Ocean Meadow Senior Living & Memory Care

What ongoing training does the staff receive in dementia care?

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, the single most important determinant of quality dementia care across all care settings is the direct care staff. All staff at Ocean Meadow are continuously trained so they can provide maximum comfort to our residents, while also knowing how to safely intervene when certain risk behaviors are displayed.

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

Ocean Meadow offers 24-hour nursing on-site. In day time there are 11 staffers and at night there are 3 staffers. This fluctuates with occupancy and care level of the residents.

What programs or activities does Ocean Meadow Senior Living & Memory Care offer to keep residents engaged? How does the staff engage residents' long-term memories?

Ocean Meadow has a full-time Programming Director with over 20 years of experience in therapeutic recreation. She creates a monthly schedule that is based on our current base of resident's interests, and aims to target emotional, spiritual, physical, and social wellbeing. We have a simple goal--improving quality of life. We are also known for our outside adventures, including being located just a mile from Clinton Beach where we have cookouts and fishing trips.

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

We have an RN or LPN on-site at all times that would note changes in a resident's behaviors and the nursing team shares information with each other to ensure we are taking a collaborative approach to care as resident's needs change or increase. A full assessment is officially done monthly to track any major changes.

What techniques does Ocean Meadow Senior Living & Memory Care use to support memory care residents during mealtimes?

We use the hand under hand technique when assisting our residents to dine. This method involves placing your hand under the person's hand respectively and gently moving the utensil into their mouth. The hand under hand technique focuses on doing “with” someone not doing “to” someone. We offer residents choices and do not rush the dining process, so we can preserve a dignified experience for all. Modified diets are available as well.

How does Ocean Meadow Senior Living & Memory Care keep residents' families informed about their loved ones' health?

We have an open-door policy with our nursing team that are always available for questions. We share resident's care plans with families and keep them privy to any changes or concerns that our staff are seeing. Families will be notified officially of their loved one's status after monthly reassessments.
