Imagine a nursing home that doesn’t look or feel like one but where residents receive the highest quality of care in a household setting.
We take the institution out of care-giving and it changes everything for everyone involved – the residents, their families, and our staff.
Imagine skilled nursing care where residents are encouraged to take charge of their day and make their own decisions.
That’s what a nursing home should be. It’s what Deupree Cottages are: a place where residents live at home, not in a home. It’s a place where you can smell the cookies baking in the oven when the grandkids come for a visit. And we’ll either help the resident bake them or we are happy to bake them for her / him.
From the private rooms, to the cozy fireplaces, to the open kitchens and common areas, Deupree Cottages is unlike any nursing home you have probably ever seen. Our person-centered care approach allows Cottages residents to live here on their own terms, free from restrictive routines. Unless there is a valid medical reason that would be a problem, residents choose their wake-up times, what and when they would like to eat, and what activities they want to participate in.
We have seen remarkable clinical improvements in this environment even for those who have been withdrawn or physically impaired for a period of time before they came to live here. Most of all, residents live with dignity and respect in an environment that offers freedom, choice and purpose – with high quality care provided by an experienced, compassionate, specially trained professional staff.
As a validation of what we consider our “best in class” status among nursing homes, Deupree Cottages was recently selected as one of only six other communities in the entire United States to be featured in the book, Design for Aging: International Case Studies of Building and Program, published by John Wiley & sons, Inc., 2012. We were cited for our innovative design, architectural challenges, and the non-traditional Person-Centered Care approach.
Give us a call or arrange for a visit. Once you experience Deupree Cottages, we believe you will agree that all other 24-hour skilled nursing care options will pale in comparison.
