I visited this facility

One of the places that was recommended to me was Clare Bridge of Ormond Beach, and so I did go there for a visit. I like the staff in this facility. I like the rooms because they're spacious with a little more of a personal touch.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

We just moved my mother a couple of weeks ago. The main reason why we chose this facility is because of their staff ratio versus the residents. Their staff ratio was really good. They can take care of the residents better. They are friendly and caring towards the residents and the family of the residents. I like that the residents are in a structured environment. I like that they know what's gonna be happening during the day and there they plenty of good activities. They have scrap-booking and they take the residents out once in a while. She is in studio setting and it's really lovely. Their meals looked great and the menus looked great.

I visited this facility

My friend and I went to visit the Clare Bridge of Ormond Beach assisted living facility since he is looking for a place for his mother to live. The outside grounds had lush, well-kept greenery. There was also a nice area in back for residents and their friends and families to enjoy. The foyer was fresh, bright and airy. As we walked through the facility, we could see that it was kept clean and nice for the residents. It was also clear that they can handle different levels of ambulation and memory impairment. The restaurant style dining areas offered many delicious choices. The lunch we saw looked like one you might find in an upscale venue. Their was also had a private dining room for friends and family to enjoy. The facility offers plenty of amenities - like social enrichment activities within and around the community. The staff takes residents on weekly outings for shopping and entertainment, nature walks and other recreational activities. The residents are encouraged to enjoy physical activity as much as possible. They may take exercise classes such as yoga and aerobics, or use the weight training and other equipment. Residents may also enjoy the outer walk ways around the building. The private housing options spacious apartments, and a variety of floor plans to choose from, were all lovely and looked like they had been personalized. This looked like a great place for seniors to live, in a caring and safe environment.

In our Clare Bridge, we use our Daily Path to establish a routine & keep our residents engaged daily. The Daily Path ensures that we are using our 6 dimensions of Optimum Life to encourage our Clare Bridge residents each day through a variety of activities. We also use what is called, their Life Story, which is a tool that is used to learn more about residents, as they move into our Clare Bridge Program, so that we can personally design their day based on their life, where they are in their journey and what activities & programs will bring them the most purpose. For example, if we learn that a female resident was a secretary during her life and in her dementia journey is in that timeframe, then we will create activities that will provide purpose for her in that role. This could include setting up a filing station, having a notepad to take notes, etc. Every resident is different and every story is different and unique.

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

Initially when a resident moves in to our community, our Health & Wellness Director will conduct as Assessment to determine their current care needs and learn more about what we should prepare for in the future. After the resident has moved in, we will reassess over the first 72 hours to ensure they are settling in and that the original assessment was accurate. We will then reassess the first 2 weeks and then at the completion of the first 30 days. Formal assessment are completed every 6 months, but our Care Team will reassess at any point that there is a change and more care is needed. This will also include a conversation with family to ensure that everyone is on the same page and aware of the care changes. We believe that care is a partnership and will be treated as such with each of our residents and families.
