Manor Lake Is Here For You

Manor Lake Assisted Living & Memory Care is again Accepting New Residents. For many of our seniors Assisted Living or Memory Care at Manor Lake is currently the best option. Considering the enhanced safety measures that Manor Lake is taking, moving into a senior community may make more sense than living isolated alone at home and not getting adequate care.

Enhanced Safety Measures

  • Restriction of non-essential visitors from entry in order to keep our residents safe.
  • Screening daily staff and third party professionals.
  • Staff are being instructed to stay home if they have symptoms of any type of illness.
  • Enhanced cleaning procedures above and beyond our normal cleaning procedures.
  • Manor Lake is doing daily screening of residents for any symptoms of coronavirus.

Our Main Priority is Your Health & Safety

Maintaining the health, wellness, and safety of our residents is our number one priority. Due to the COVID-19 situation, effective immediately we are restricting visitors to our community. This is in cooperation with federal mandates regarding this situation. Letters regarding specific details are being sent to the responsible parties for our residents to provide them with more detailed information. In addition to restricting visits, our staff will be screened prior to the starting of their shifts and have been trained on the symptoms of COVID-19 as well as infection prevention techniques. This is a fluid situation and we will keep you informed as the situation changes. We appreciate your cooperation and patience. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Validation Therapy

What is Validation?

This is a communication technique that allows caregivers to better relate to our Memory Care residents by connecting with residents where they are on life’s journey. For example, if a resident sees themselves as a 35-year-old working professional, then the caregiver joins the resident in their reality. This is accomplished by accepting the values and beliefs of the resident without confrontation. Trying to reorient a resident to “facts” often is confusing and unsuccessful for the resident. The caregiver is putting themselves in the shoes of the resident, not simply by trying to move an individual’s attention from one thing to another; it is also about validating feelings and emotions.

How does it work?

A resident does not want to go to dinner as she states she is waiting on her husband to join her. The caregiver knows that the husband is deceased. If the caregiver tells the resident that the husband is not coming because he has died, it can often confuse and confound the resident who may believe that her spouse has just died. This can cause the resident to grieve her loss all over again.

A better approach using Validation might be:

Resident:

I don’t want to go yet. I am waiting on Charlie to come.

Caregiver:

Charlie can’t come to dinner tonight, but I would love it if you joined me for dinner. I would like to hear more about Charlie, he sounds like a wonderful guy.

Resident:

Oh yes, he was a wonderful husband! What are we having for dinner?
