Wellness Center Services
An important part of our commitment to providing the highest quality of life for all our residents is reflected in our alliance with MyLife Home Health Care. MyLife Home Health staffs and coordinates our Wellness Center, providing 24/7 emergency response staff and assisted living support services as needed.
Home health services, private duty services, physical therapy, occupational therapy and clinical laboratory services are all available on-site and coordinated through the Wellness Center.
Graduated assisted living services are available, including spot checks, bathing and/or dressing assistance, meal escort, medication set-up and reminders. Our Wellness Center works with residents and their families to tailor services to meet specific personal care requirements so clients pay for and receive only the services they need.
Nursing staff on site includes a full-time nurse who is on duty Monday through Friday to address residents’ medical concerns and questions, perform regular weight and blood pressure checks, and coordinate with residents’ physicians as needed. Nursing assistants are on duty around-the-clock to provide compassionate and responsive care to meet residents’ needs.
Physicians’ office hours and additional medical specialists are coordinated by the Wellness Center. Primary Care Physicians affiliated with North Shore University Health System’s Evanston and Skokie Hospitals and with St. Francis Hospital keep scheduled office hours in the Wellness Center. Residents may make an appointment to see one of these physicians through the Wellness Center. Other medical and professional service providers keeping office hours in the Wellness Center include dentists, clinical laboratories, vision care, podiatrists and hearing aid specialists.
In addition to the emergency pull-cord system located in each residence unit, the Wellness Center can arrange for an individual portable emergency call system, available for a monthly fee.
