One of the many amenities offered at Mount Vernon Towers is a Personal Care Center, a warm and inviting setting for individuals who need additional personal care after surgery, during rehabilitation, giving your personal care giver a much-needed break or whenever a 24/7 in-home caregiver is just not an option. Our Personal Care Center is offered to our independent living seniors, but you do not have to live at Mount Vernon Towers to take advantage of this amenity.
Our Personal Care Center is a private pay, dedicated care facility. As an option to private pay, those with long-term health insurance, life insurance policies with a cash value or a critical care rider may be covered by their insurance provider.
Personal services include assistance or supervision with the activities of daily life such as self- administered medication, ambulation and transfer, eating, bathing, grooming, dressing, and toileting. The Mount Vernon staff also provides housekeeping, laundry service, assistance writing letters, shopping, and using public transportation. Every residence has a bed, bedding, bathroom, lavatory, and TV. Some residences have individual showers for additional privacy. The residences can be fully furnished so all you need are the personal items you enjoy.
The ideal resident is a person who can move from place to place by walking, either unaided or aided by prosthesis, brace, cane, crutches, walker, or handrails, or by propelling a wheelchair. Residents must be able to respond to an emergency by evacuating with minimal human assistance, other than the personnel guiding a resident to an exit, using the normal means of egress. Each resident will receive a personal assessment to determine the best approach to accommodate their personal needs, whether a medication regimen or simply the best way to ensure you can move freely and thrive in your home and on our campus.
Our kind and helpful staff includes a facility manager and caregivers who are available 24/7. All our caregivers and staff members have had criminal background checks and have been certified to provide personal care services. Most staff have hospital and other previous healthcare experience. We have also partnered with a notable wellness group which provide us with visiting medical professionals such as medical doctors and a dentist. Our mission is to provide respect, dignity, and gentle care to any resident always, whether your stay is for days or months and ensure your visit will be a comfortable, engaging, and happy experience.
The entire staff at Mount Vernon Towers works hard to provide fun and laughter as well as a sense of community for everyone. Activities such as concerts, games, special events, and faith services are available to each resident. Another key goal is to promote physical, mental, and social well-being. Residents in our Personal Care Center enjoy three meals a day and snacks in the afternoon. Additionally, residents are encouraged to participate in many of the activities that are available to our residents who live independently in the Towers. Examples are the swimming pool, fitness center, and games such as cards, puzzles, and board games. Personal Care Center residents may participate in many other social activities including community outings.
