Lifestyle



ENGAGEMENT LEADS TO BETTER OUTCOMES

We offer a lifestyle that focuses on whole-person care.

The lifestyle at Island Home is one enhanced by our philosophy to treat the whole person.

In addition to skilled nursing and rehabilitation services, we strive to elevate all facets of care from emotional support, physical well-being and engagement opportunities to fun and creative activities to create an atmosphere that promotes health and personal satisfaction.

Our associates understand that people, especially seniors, experience loneliness, which can lead to health issues that can accelerate illness and shorten life expectancy. Every day, we aim to provide personalized and meaningful engagement opportunities for those in our care.

We provide assorted 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.

Feeling a sense of belonging and having social support offer many positive attributes, which is why we’re committed to delivering both to those in our care.

We want our patients and residents to thrive in a carefree environment where they – and their family members – can rest assured that their needs are addressed and met.

We’d like to show you the Island Home lifestyle firsthand. Click LEARN MORE to schedule a visit.
