So long as you are living, you are on a journey — and there remains ample opportunity for joy and for wonder. That is our philosophy here at CountryHouse, and it guides everything we do on behalf of residents. We will not settle for providing a place for people just to grow stagnant. Instead, we seek to make every part of everyday truly engaging to the residents who stay with us — providing them with real joy and fulfillment.
At CountryHouse, our philosophy of care focuses on creating moments of joy.
This philosophy is best seen in our LifeCycles calendar, which provides robust programming year-round. Each week brings a new theme — often connected to the seasons — and each day brings a new lineup of activities that relate to that theme. The activities may include cooking, crafts, exercise, dance, and more; all are designed to promote interaction and to stimulate happy memories. At the same time, they promote our whole-person, four-fold view of health — a holistic conception that encompasses social, spiritual, physical, and intellectual well-being.
Note that we do not have “activity” times here at CountryHouse, segmented from the rest of the day; we believe that everything our residents do, from the moment they wake up and head to breakfast, are opportunities for meaningful interaction. Our staff members seek to engage at every step of the way.
We strive to provide a more home-like, non-institutional alternative to traditional assisted living facilities. We never want residents to feel like they are in a hospital. We want them to feel comfortable and welcome. As such, we design our buildings to feel like private homes. We furnish them with warmth and delight. We avoid institutional cues such as med carts, signage and scrubs, and we even ensure that staff members avoid institutional language.
The CountryHouse philosophy also leaves plenty of room for family involvement. We understand that family members also need to be supported and upheld, and we seek to do so in a number of casual, welcoming contexts — including regular “Coffee Club” chats and more. We also seek to help residents maintain their most cherished family traditions, and invite loved ones to join us at CountryHouse for a number of special events.
Our ultimate goal is to provide a rich life for those who live with us — and that means we do things a little differently than our competitors. Learn more about the CountryHouse distinction. Contact us today with any questions.
