Care seekers need instant access to see the full picture when searching for skilled nursing, rehabilitation and long-term care. Online searches are a critical component, so Hillcrest Healthcare has introduced an all-new website to provide patients, families and providers the most sought-after information needed to make an informed decision.
According to Aging.com, several things to consider when choosing a long-term care facility include location, services, staffing and independent patient choices such as food, activities, schedules and enrichment.
Hillcrest Healthcare offers dozens of services and therapies – and we understand that whole person care is the key to better outcomes and that it doesn’t start and end with medical services. We strive to elevate all facets of care, including nutrition, emotional support, physical well-being and engagement opportunities, to create an atmosphere that promotes health and personal satisfaction.
“Each of our communities is held together by common threads such as character, integrity, compassionate and professional healthcare and our mantra that ‘Everyone Matters,’ ” says Doug Bryant, director of human resources. “Our communities each have their own unique settings and individual personalities. Island Home is our smallest community, and it truly operates like a tight-knit family. West Hills is expanding and offers new services such as hospice care. Beverly Park is a five-star building in a quiet setting with the longest-tenured employees.”
Loneliness – especially in seniors – can lead to health issues that accelerate illness and shorten life expectancy. Every day, we aim to provide personalized and meaningful engagement opportunities for those in our care.
We provide activities, giving patients and residents opportunities to interact with each other and the staff through games and crafts, exercise and more. Our physical environment fosters interaction, too, through inviting outdoor areas, living and dining spaces.
Hosting visitors is an important priority. We welcome families, volunteer groups and special lecturers.
Our food is prepared to nourish both the patient and the soul. With a Registered Dietitian (RD) overseeing menus, we provide nutritious meals with familiar dishes that our patients love.
Spirituality is fostered through multi-denominational services that are held on campus several times each week.
We want our patients to thrive in a carefree environment where they, and their loved ones, can rest assured that their needs are addressed and met.
