About CountryHouse – Council Bluffs
At this brand new Community, we believe services are just part of everyday living at CountryHouse. Because CountryHouse was designed by assisted living/memory care experts to look and feel like a family home, service delivery is discreetly built into the natural function of the household.
Services include 24-hour care, daily home-cooked meals with mealtime assistance if needed, medication supervision, help with bathing, dressing and hair care, housekeeping, laundry, and transportation. A nurse is on-site Monday through Friday and on call 24/7. Doctors, podiatrists, beauticians and other affiliated professionals make regular visits.
A full-time program coordinator oversees a 52-week curriculum of activities that are integrated with LifeCycles, our signature, whole-person wellness program. The program curriculum is designed to maximize all four elements of wellness: Spiritual, Intellectual, Physical and Spiritual.
Because everything we do is considered an activity, all staff participate in activities at CountryHouse seven days a week. There is a balance of daily, routine activities such as Morning Exercise and the Afternoon Bus Ride, and weekly activities such as Tuesday Pet Visits. Special activities add variety, depending on the season, such as bus trips, dances, classroom visits, concerts, parties, and more. There’s also a balance of group and personalized one-on-one activities. Interaction with pets, children, and nature are strong elements of our program curriculum.
