For many older adults, a debilitating illness, a catastrophic fall or even a planned surgery like a hip replacement can take more rehabilitation than anticipated. Often, skilled nursing facilities provide the much needed therapy in order to get the patient back home. But in some instances, the skilled need of a nursing home is gone, but the patient is just not quite ready to head back home on their own.
The Pavilions at Forrestal is able to offer the best of both worlds. With its unique transitional program at its assisted living facility, residents preparing to return home can take advantage of the care provided, while regaining their much deserved independence. For many, this is a great way to continue with outpatient therapy and an enhancement to their occupational rehabilitation. It is great way to ensure that a person is prepared to care for their needs at home, while having the security of trained and dedicated staff to assist when needed.
In addition, the facility offers respite care. This short-term, vacation-like stay, provides care givers with the much needed break from the day-to-day tasks of caring for a loved one. The Pavilions allows respite guests the opportunity to take advantage of the plush amenities, top-of-the line services and care and a chance to socialize with others.
Of course, the Pavilions offers traditional assisted living as well. With access to care available around the clock, residents can feel confident they will get the care they need, when they need it, but remain as independent as possible. They will be able to live with dignity and privacy they have so greatly earned. “We are dedicated to providing extraordinary healthcare with incomparable elegance,” said Executive Director Bob Angel.
Apartment style living is the key to comfort at the Pavilions. Residents can choose from bright and airy apartments with convenient access to social areas. All apartments are equipped with emergency response systems and small kitchenettes and can be filled personal mementos, photos and belongings.
And, for those suffering from memory loss, the Pavilions offers a program specifically designed to enhance quality of life while slowing the progression of the disease. Through music, arts and crafts and cultural events, among others, residents are kept cognitively stimulated throughout the day, while surrounded by loving and dedicated staff who assist when needed. And just because their memory isn’t what it used to be, residents at the Pavilions are able to enjoy many of the great amenities available at The Pavilions. In fact, there is even a secure area for outdoor recreation and relaxation.
For those who have spent their lives on the go, the Pavilions is ideally located in Princeton, New Jersey. With concierge services and complimentary van transportation, many residents continue to enjoy the activities of their past, like shopping, cultural events and social gatherings. In addition, the facility provides health and wellness programs, elegant dining and housekeeping services to help provide the most accommodating environment possible.
Many of the residents also take advantage of the spacious common areas playing cards, discussing current affairs or simply chatting with their neighbors. According to Angel these areas “always have residents and guests involved.” He also pointed to one unique program devised by the Pavillions’ residents that helps foster commradarie among those involved. “The Residents have come up with a program that explores each individual’s life experience, good or bad . This program helps them bond closer,” Angel said.
For many, the transition to a senior living setting is one met with trepidation and fear. But, the Pavilions offers a place that is beautiful, clean, and safe. with a staff that is not only professional but cheerful. “Family members have stated that they can now sleep at night knowing mom or dad is well taken care of,” said Angel.
Above all else, the staff at The Pavilions of Forrestal will work to “bring the good life to later life.”
