About BeeHive Homes Assisted Living of Lynn Haven
Here at BeeHive Homes of Lynn Haven, everyone knows each other and feels more comfortable spending time in the common areas and doing activities together. Our staff is able to know the residents uniquely. When we are able to know each person so thoroughly, we can better relate to them, better care for them, better cater our activities to them, and overall make them feel more like they are at home.
This is also the reason we have a 1:5 daytime staffing ratio. Compared to a typical, state-regulated staffing ratio of 1:17 in larger facilities, we didn’t feel like enough time could be allotted to each resident to make our good intentions possible. So we chose to increase our staffing ratio well beyond state regulation to make our vision of care a reality. Our staff isn’t just there to give assistance with showers and medications before disappearing into the next room. They are friends that give time and attention as well as care and its only possible because our ratio is so excellent. With typical staffing ratios, the aids are just too busy with tasks of caregiving to be able to add to the social atmosphere of the home.
Our staffing ratio, coupled with our smaller size and open layout, creates an environment that is interactive, social, and unified. The many common areas are easily accessible and freely utilized by our residents. Each of the 16 private rooms has a private bathroom equipped with a walk-in-shower, non-slip flooring, heat fan, heated toilet seat, and call button. The central kitchen is open 24/7 and although we provide healthy and delicious home-cooked meals, our residents are free to enter and help cook or bake if they desire. We dine together at two large, sturdy, gorgeous oak tables that were handcrafted by one of the owners. These tables are also used for playing games and doing crafts or other activities, which happen daily.

Sometimes as people age, intermittent nursing care or physical therapy is needed. In those cases we assist in arranging Home Health to come in, covered by Medicare, to fulfill those needs. Also, as people age and require hospice care, in most cases, they are able to continue living comfortably and peacefully in their home here at Bee Hive until the time comes for them to return back to their heavenly home.
Residents with dementia needs do very well living at BeeHive because our smaller environment is soothing and calm, easily navigated, and our extra staff are readily available to assist them with redirecting and reminding them of the things they may be confused about. As dementia is a vast term and each person is unique in their related needs, please call to discuss your loved one’s needs and our applicable assistance.
