We strongly believe that residents of A Love For Life are here to open a new chapter in their lives. A chapter full of the spirit of love, laughter and life.
We owe it to our elders, who have worked so hard all their lives while raising families of their own, to provide them with the comfort, safety dignity and respect they truly deserve.
Care-giving at A Love For Life is not only attending to the physical and mental health needs of the residents but also about attending to their whole life needs. We aim to provide a sense of belonging, daily hugs, smiles and kisses, a shoulder to cry on when needed, communication, and interaction and socialization. Most of all we strive to infuse each and every day with fun, laughter and joy.
This is a Love For Life, this is what we are and this is what we do.
We know that our mother is well-cared for in a safe place. The quality of the staff under Roann’s direction (a medical professional who is frequently on-site supervising) is a big plus.
At A Love For Life, we are careful and selective when evaluating potential staff tojoin our team as a Care Associate. Professionalism, integrity, compassion, and patience are the cornerstones of desirable traits that we look for and of equal importance in our team are a sense of gentleness, fun-loving, high-spirits, and kindness.
All Care Associates at A Love For Life meet and exceed State standards for assisted living training. In addition to Care Assistance training, our staff is trained in the areas of dementia, hospice, medication assistance, First Aid, CPR, Fire Safety, Food Safety, General Safety, Risk Management and more. They are trained by professional Registered Nurses, Physical Therapists, Hospice & Home Health Care nurses, Pharmacists, AFD Fire Department professionals, Food Safety professionals, Bereavement Specialists, and others.
Annual Spring refresher training is a must every year. We also provide nationally renowned ServSafe food management training for all of our kitchen staff.
In addition to our training, we provide a minimum of 80 to 100 hours of on-the-job supervised training by senior staff before a Care Associate is permitted to provide independent caregiving.
Our staffing ratios of Care Associates to Residents far exceed State requirements. Our staffing ratios are generally higher than most in our industry. This is important and should be strongly considered when selecting a home for your family member.
