Oklahoma City, OK - Assisted Living, Memory Care
Community size: Extra Large (100+)
We’re asked to wear a lot of hats in life like loving husband, model employee, and supportive parent, but one of the most challenging roles to fill is caregiver. Caregivers are often forced to walk fine lines, lines like being available to keep an eye on their dad in case he takes another fall, but giving him the privacy that he wants in his own home. Showing compassion and respect to their mother with memory loss, but making sure she’s eating, even if she doesn’t want to.
It’s no surprise that a lot of caregivers are riddled with senses of worry, uncertainty, and guilt. The good news is: it can get better. The caregivers and nurses in our communities have a passion for helping seniors and their families transition through aging and have experience walking the fine lines. They can be the watchdog, the friend and the confidant, but they can never take your place.
We pride ourselves on offering multiple levels of care so our residents can age in place, here, at home, in Mansion at Waterford Assisted Living.
If there comes a time when your mom or dad needs more help to get through their day, Mansion at Waterford Assisted Living’s assisted living care services can help. In addition to the usual meals, activities, and maintenance, your mom or dad can also get any combination of support services like medication management, help with bathing and dressing and incontinence management.
Our In the Moment® program is thoughtfully designed as a team-approach to memory care delivery. We describe what we offer as Memory Support because we’re intentionally shifting away from outdated Dementia care practices and into a hospitality model.
We recognize that each person we are privileged to serve is both unique in their life history, as well as their Dementia journey. We understand the importance of a scheduled rhythm to each day. However, we also encourage our team members to slow down and embrace the impromptu moments that happen as well. We find it’s the spontaneous moments have high impact for both the care giver and the care receiver. Living In The Moment is the greatest gift we can give to anyone we serve during their journey.
For a lot of caregivers, taking care of their mom and dad is a full-time job. The idea of going out of town for a weekend or an unexpected short-term change in care needs, like doctor’s orders after being discharged from the hospital, are serious stressors for caregivers who already feel worn thin. If you’re a caregiver who needs some extra help for a few weeks or days, respite care might be the perfect fit. Respite care provides the peace of mind of on-site care staff, prepared meals, and enrichment opportunities, without the long-term commitment.
At The Mansion at Waterford, we don’t just help our residents, we also help their families by offering them the peace of mind that we’re taking care of their husband, wife, mother or father and treating them with the respect and dignity they deserve. Our on-site care staff is made up of a dedicated care team, two licensed LPNs, and our Director of Health Services, a licensed RN. With such a dedicated, qualified team, it’s no surprise that we’ve created a culture of superior caring, empathy, and compassion. When it comes to our residents, the things that matter to us are the same things that matter to you.
