Fidelis - Northshore I is an engaging assisted living community in Mandeville, Louisiana. It is within delightful Saint Tammany County which is part of the Pelican State.
Fidelis Residential Care Homes is owned and operated by 3 Registered Nurses with over 55 years of ER and Senior Care experience. It was formed to provide affordable, safe, and comfortable living accommodations with 24-hour personal care for our elderly community without sacrificing the warm feeling of home.
Every resident receives personal attention and assistance tailored to his or her specific need, as well as one-on-one encouragement to maintain as many of his or her abilities and as much independence as possible. No resident is "lost in the crowd" or left behind a closed apartment door to fend for themselves. Qualified caregivers provide daily meals, housekeeping, medications supervision, and personal assistance.
We also take the time to communicate with families to ensure that they are well informed of all care issues. At Fidelis, caring for a small number of residents means greater attention to the care needs of our residents, and greater peace of mind for everyone.
Caregivers notice subtle changes in residents quickly and are able to alert physicians or family members of warning signs and any other changes. Caregivers are always nearby and residents need not rely only on emergency pull cords or similar devices to call for help from a distant nurse's station. Each resident is cared for and treated like family.
Those with memory loss or moderate, non-aggressive dementia are also well suited to a more intimate environment. Residents easily become familiar with the small setting, consistent staff and a limited number of other residents around them.
We view our homes as “the caring alternative to nursing homes and the intimate alternative to assisted living.” Family members and loved ones will get the attention and care that they deserve, but are not able to get in a large institutional facility.
Fidelis Residential Care Homes are the caring alternative to nursing homes. We provide high-quality assisted living senior care through close supervision, activities, quality meals and assistance with activities of daily living in a pleasant, intimate setting for a limited number of residents.
The Personal Care Home has become the preferred model of care in assisted living. The intimate setting and limited number of residents allows for each caregiver to become personally familiar with the capabilities, limitations, needs and personality of each resident. Not only does this result in a more comfortable, supportive and respectful home for each resident, it translates into better protective oversight and assistance. It also allows for residents to better acclimate to their surroundings and their caregivers.
Regulated by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, our small assisted living facilities may care for those individuals who, because of the ageing process or physical frailty, may no longer be able to live safely at home, but who do not need nor desire a more institutional setting, such as a skilled nursing facility.
While many residents choose Fidelis simply because they want a smaller setting, others with physical limitations (such as difficulty walking, or those with medical conditions that require close monitoring) also thrive here. Some residents may have had recent hospital stays or are completing physical therapy after an injury or operation. Until complete recovery, additional service such as physical therapy or home health care can be arranged to assist them as needed.
