Choosing a nursing home for your loved one is an important and challenging task. We know you have many options for nursing homes in Dallas TX, and the surrounding areas and are confident that you’ll be happy at Manchester Care Homes.
Making these choices is a huge undertaking, and you want to get it right the first time. When we designed our homes, we looked at what the area had to offer and noticed several significant things people want to be happy in his or her new home. From our years of experience and expertise, here are 3 things you should seek in a nursing home for a good experience:
- A welcoming home-like environment
- The staff should be like family
- Good tasting, nutritious foods
One can say with 100% certainty that you will hear your loved one about these three things if they are not up to par. These things can also make a massive difference in the quality of life if they are not part of a positive experience.
Home Sweet Home
It may sound a little cliche, but feeling comfortable, safe, and at home is essential for everyone. We know how scary it can be for the elderly to move into a nursing home facility. That is why we have taken the extra steps to make our personalized care homes look and feel like actual homes, so your loved ones feel safe and comfortable in a home-like environment and do not look or feel like hospitals or institutions
Our bright and light homes have everything a standard home would have, kitchen, common area, and dining rooms. Each large, roomy suite has an ADA-compliant bathroom as well. The only difference is that instead of lets, say a three bedroom home, our homes can accommodate up to eight people.
We are Like Family
Our team is experienced, compassionate, and prepared to care for your loved one and it shows. When interviewed, our staff and residents alike agree that they are loved and cared for like a family. Our caregivers provide assistance with bathing, cooking, medications, and other parts of a daily regimen. The staff also provides socialization activities, so our residents are stimulated mentally and physically.
With a small 4 to 1 (or less) ratio, our dedicated team of employees, not contractors, genuinely gets to know our residents on a personal level. You are more than a resident to us. We believe companionship and friendship are vital to the quality of life, especially in a nursing home setting.
We encourage anyone interested in moving into our homes to take a tour and meet the staff.
Nutritious, Tasty Meals Included
Food is one of the top complaints among nursing home residents nationwide. While you can’t cater to every resident’s taste and provide nutritious, healthy meal options at the same time, we strive to take a proactive approach to addressing food quality and taste.
Residents receive three nutritionally balanced home-cooked meals each day. Each is cooked from scratch. Residents also have access to a fully stocked pantry of snacks to keep them satiated between meals.
We invite you to come eat with your loved ones any time, and taste just how good Manchester meals are.
