Avalon was designed and built to accommodate senior adults who need assistance with daily activities. We provide a safe, cheerful environment where residents receive as much assistance as needed, but are encouraged to be as independent as possible. We are a "Type B" facility, licensed by the State, which means that we can accept people who are in a wheelchair or use a walker. Our building is equipped with a sprinkler system to provide safety to disabled residents.

Our staff recognizes the importance of maintaining dignity, and always strives to offer aid with compassion and concern. We select our staff not only for their care giving skills but also for their positive, caring attitude toward the residents. All the aides are CNAs and are trained on site before being assigned to a shift. Our manager is a Certified Med Aide as well as being certified in records keeping. She is on site 40 hours per week. In addition we have a nurse who comes twice a week to see all the residents and is on call for emergencies. Our doctor is a geriatric specialist who sees the residents routinely and is on call for consultation and emergencies. Residents who wish to continue with their present physician are able to do so.

Basic services include three nutritious meals daily plus snacks, laundry and housekeeping services, medication supervision and assistance with personal care and daily routines as needed. Care plans are developed for each resident to identify their specific care needs. We provide 24-hour supervision with nightly bed checks every two hours. Our staff will help arrange for other needed services such as Home Health Care, Podiatry Services, Hairdresser, or transportation. We are located just minutes from a major medical center where residents may be taken for emergency care.

Stimulating social activities are provided, including an exercise program, daily newspaper, games, walks, etc. In addition we have groups who come in - church groups, scout troops, local school groups - to visit and share activities. Special attention is given to holidays and birthday. Avalon will assist friends and family in planning celebrations that are appropriate for residents with special health requirements.

All our rooms are double. They easily accommodate two beds, two chairs, dresser, and night stands. There are two closets and a half bath in each room. There are two large baths, one with a tub and one with shower, with roll in chair. All baths are supervised and assisted, if needed. Residents may bring their own furniture or use Avalon's. Residents are encouraged to bring personal items, such as pictures, paintings, lamps, etc. to feel more at home.

Families and friends are encouraged to visit as often as they wish. There are no "visiting hours", but visitors are asked to call if they plan to come at night. We have a sitting room for visitors who prefer privacy for their visits.

We have spacious, well-maintained grounds surrounded by a six-foot wrought iron fence. There are sidewalks and paths, which accommodate wheelchairs. Our patio is furnished with chairs and table for comfortable and pleasant outdoor activities.

For those interested in seeing Avalon Personal Care Home, an appointment is necessary and may be arranged by calling during regular business hours. Our manager does an evaluation of a prospective resident and/or nurse before being accepted. This is necessary to ensure that we will be able to meet the needs of the resident.

Our Administration and Staff recognize that making a move to an assisted living facility is a traumatic experience for families. It often involves loss of independence, family role-reversals, feelings of guilt and anger. Knowing this, we dedicate ourselves to helping make the move as smooth and pleasant as possible and providing a comfortable, satisfying lifestyle for the residents in our care.
