Wealshire of Bloomington
A Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care Facility
Providing Alzheimer’s care for all four stages of the disease
Wealshire – “a community of well being”. The definition of Wealshire sums up our philosophy of care as no other words can. We strive to provide the best care possible in order to give the person with dementia a sense of well being by living with pride and dignity.
Our goal is to provide a socialized approach to care where residents are provided with opportunities to maintain their highest level of functioning throughout the progressive disease process. Staff is specifically trained in dementia care and will be utilizing the Progressively Lowered Stress Threshold (PLST) model in order to help residents achieve their functioning goal and preserve their quality of life.
The PLST model focuses on redefining “stress” for the person with dementia; recognizing dementia causes a lowered stress threshold for these individuals; and managing the stress. We will accomplish this through our staffing structure, programming and environment.
Our staffing structure will include a Registered Nurse (RN) to oversee and manage the health care of our residents; Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) to coordinate the day to day care on the Household under the direction of the RN; Trained Med Aides (TMA) to assist with medication administration; Nursing Assistants, Registered (NAR) to provide the hands on care of Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, grooming and toileting. The staff to resident ratio will depend on the level of care required by the residents. In the earlier stages of the disease when the residents are able to do more of their cares independently there will be a lower staff to resident ratio. e.g. one staff to ten residents. As the disease progresses and the resident requires more hands on care, the staff to resident ratio will be higher. e.g. one staff to four residents.
Programming of leisure activities will be provided by activity staff under the direction of an Activity Director along with caregiving staff. Under the PLST model stimulating activities will be alternated with less stimulating activities. Specific rest periods will be scheduled in the morning and afternoon . Examples of leisure activities include: exercises, games, reminiscing, sing-a-longs, church services, movies at the cinema, happy hour and ice cream treats at the Ice Cream Parlor. Individual likes and dislikes of the resident will guide the staff on which activities to encourage resident participation.
