Ramsgate Family Care Home is an engaging assisted living community in Durham, North Carolina. It is within elegant Durham County which is part of the Tar Heel State.
Ramsgate Family Care Home is the ideal solution for seniors who value their independence, who are free-spirited and who may need a little help with daily activities, such as bathing, dressing and medications reminders. As we focus on preserving ones' dignity, nurturing the spirit and celebrating individuality, we also offer an individualized care plan for each resident. We meet with each resident and family member before they move in and at regular intervals thereafter to determine the needed care and service for that resident.
The Care Plan often does include help with personal hygiene and grooming, dressing and clothes selection, showering and bathing, socialization and medication management. We think this is a different and more preferable option to chose or consider when a senior does not require intensive 24 hour a day care like that which is required in a nursing facility, a higher level of care. Additionally, our programs are designed around what you find joy in doing.
There is always something exciting to do! Whether you prefer going on a group outing to a museum, going on an outing to the mall, an ice cream social with other fellow residents, or just going to the coffee shop to read a book and have a cup of coffee, we help you live the life you want and that's the exciting part.
