HEAL TH The Orchard: Nursing Home or Healthy Living Community?


A different name reflects a very different approach to older adult living Reimaging the Nursing Home


Even though the team at The Orchard will be celebrating National Nursing Home Week (May 14-20) they see themselves as much more than that. They are involved a whole new approach to older adult living with a number of important innovations and a renewed commitment to improving the quality of life for older adults, which allows them to age with dignity.


The Difference Person-Centered Care Makes


Transforming from the traditional nursing home environment to a Healthy Living Community means maintaining a focus on the quality of care and adding an equal emphasis on quality of life.


The Orchard supports choices that residents make about their schedules and how they spend their day. For example, they wake up, eat, and go to bed, when they choose to, and personal decisions are readily accommodated by a caring and flexible staff. In addition to providing hands-on care, the staff is cross-trained so they are committed and able to support resident preferences.


A New Approach and a New Look| As part of a Healthy Living Community, the living areas contain a fully functional kitchen where residents can participate in food preparation and food is served family style in shared dining rooms to encourage social interaction. As a result, the familiar sense of home contributes to people feeling like true residents in a community instead of patients in an institution. Putting the “health” in Healthy Living Community The emphasis on choice, which includes how and where to receive traditional care when needed, has made a notable improvement in socialization, communication, and basic human interaction. For the people living at The Orchard, these changes play an important role in overall health and well-being.


Creating a Continuum of Care


The Orchard includes a range of resources for older adults. Magnolia Manor provides cozy apartments for residents who are mostly independent but need some assistance in the activities of daily living. Dogwood Manor delivers a comprehensive, 24/7 licensed nursing care for residents needing a higher level of support. The Garden delivers specialized memory care, and the Riverside Rehabilitation Center offers inpatient therapy for post-surgery, illness or injury recovery.
