Hospice & Palliative CareCenter to Promote National Healthcare Decisions Day on April 16

Filed under: Home Health Care,Hospice,Senior Housing Events,Senior Living Guide — seniorlivingguide @ 7:48 am

WINSTON-SALEM, seek N.C., April 12, 2012Hospice & Palliative CareCenter, along with other national, state and community organizations, is leading an effort to highlight the importance of advance healthcare decision-making — an effort that has culminated in the formal designation of April 16 as National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD).  As a participating organization, Hospice & Palliative CareCenter is providing information and tools for the public to talk about their wishes with family, friends and healthcare providers, and execute written advance directives –  the NC Healthcare Power of Attorney and the Living Will.

Specifically, on April 16, at 1:30 p.m., Hospice & Palliative CareCenter is welcoming the public to attend a free information session on this topic at Hospice & Palliative CareCenter’s A. Tab Williams Education & Counseling Center (Building 121), 101 Hospice Lane, in Winston-Salem.  Staff will go over the N.C. documents and talk about important issues to consider.  Everyone will receive a free copy of the N.C. Living Will and Health Power of Attorney.  For those who would like to complete these documents, notaries will be present.  Call 336-331-1309 to reserve your spot, or for more information.

Hospice & Palliative CareCenter will partner with BestHealth at Hanes Mall in offering a program on Advance Directives on Friday, April 20, 1:00 – 3:00 p.mCall 336-713-2378 to reserve your spot, or for more information.

“As a result of National Healthcare Decisions Day, many more people in our community can be expected to have thoughtful conversations about their healthcare decisions and complete reliable advance directives to make their wishes known,” said Dee Leahman, Director of the Community Partnership for End of Life Care, a program of HPCC.  “Fewer families and healthcare providers will have to struggle with making difficult healthcare decisions in the absence of guidance from the patient, and healthcare providers and facilities will be better equipped to address advance healthcare planning issues before a crisis and be better able to honor patient wishes when the time comes to do so.”

Since 1979, Hospice & Palliative CareCenter has been committed to providing quality medical, emotional, spiritual, and social support to patients and families who face a serious illness – regardless of diagnosis, prognosis, or treatment.  Today, Hospice & Palliative CareCenter provides these services in a 13-county area from four offices (Mocksville, Walnut Cove, and Salisbury in addition to Winston-Salem) and the Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home.  Hospice & Palliative CareCenter’s Grief Counseling Services offers bereavement services to families of Hospice patients as well as grief counseling to the community at large. Hospice also offers pediatric palliative care to infants, children and their families.  For more information about Hospice & Palliative CareCenter, contact Ann Gauthreaux, public relations director, at 336-768-3972, or see Hospice’s website at www.hospicecarecenter.org.

The Oaks at Whitaker Glen launches a Young at Heart Program!

Filed under: Senior Housing,Senior Housing Events,Senior Living Guide — seniorlivingguide @ 8:09 am

Residents from The Oaks at Whitaker Glen are Young at Heart! As part of our focus on keeping our residents independent, order we have established a Young at Heart Program. The program combines a variety of activities and services that address the physical, ask mental, and emotional health needs of our residents.

From a physical perspective, our full-time Fitness Director provides one-on-one strength training classes and teaches stretch & flexibility courses. We also offer yoga and will be adding tai chi to our list of classes soon. The newest addition to our fitness program is The The Oaks of Whitaker GlenWhitaker Glen Walking Club. Residents of all fitness levels can benefit from walking. Equipped with state-of-the-art digital pedometers, the residents are able to track the miles they walk and can see how they improve over time. The walking club enjoys trips to local parks, walking trails, and other nearby attractions. The club has really improved the residents’ sense of community and has provided another opportunity for socialization.

To meet the nutritional needs of our residents, we serve fresh, non-processed food in our dining room. Since we are a smaller retirement community, we have the luxury of offering a cook-to-order menu with daily specials from Grouper au Françoise to filet mignon salads. Homemade soups and a full salad bar are offered daily as well.

The Young at Heart program also includes existing supportive nursing services. Included in our residents’ monthly service fees are medication reminders, sick and well nurse visits, daily wellness calls, blood pressure clinics, and more. Future components of the program involve the addition of more supportive nurse services such as assistance with ADLs.
