What should you know about a nursing home before committing?

It is important to know that a nursing home can and will meet your needs as time goes by. It may be that all you want is a few days of respite care where you can be safe and well-cared for while giving your caregiver a much-needed break.

At other times, you may need specialized treatment for complex wounds, pulmonary issues and orthopedic rehabilitation. Also, having long term care available when you can no longer be safely cared for at home is important. When this occurs, you want to be sure the nursing home you select is well staffed by happy, experienced employees, the food offered is healthy, tasty and what you feel like eating. Should your memory fail, an onsite memory care unit avoids a disruptive move. And, near the end of life, hospice care is available.

Orchard Villa fits all of these requirements. Their facility offers 136 beds in mostly private rooms, with private baths. Occupational therapy, PT and speech therapy are available 24/7. A certified wound care nurse is on staff as is a full-time nurse practitioner. Specialty programs for cardiology, pulmonary, on-site dialysis and dementia are available and many different doctors make rounds at Orchard Villa. Caregiver to patient ratios are good: nurse: patients 1:20 aides : patients 1:12.

Patients’ many needs are cared for with long-term employees, great food (menu system), daily activities and attractive outdoor areas. Visitors are welcome at all times.
