Assisted Living Amenities
Feeling comfortable at a care facility is largely about finding the right amenities for the resident that are applicable at a given center. Some of the amenities provided in Caliente care facilities include:
Personal care services
Dogs & cats allowed
Physicians are on call
Meeting the needs of every senior is simple with the diverse network which serves Caliente. Some arrange for devotional services. Still other long term care facilities provide transportation (either complementary or for a nominal fee), or even can provide more advanced care like insulin injections. These amenities can be as simple as offering vegetarian meals (dietician approved), allowing pet visits, as well as organizing activities within common areas. Many facilities also have a number of specialists and doctors on staff in the event more advanced care is needed, Dentists, Podiatrists, Gerontologists, and Physical Therapists are just some examples.
While not necessary, when contacting the facilities in these lists it can be helpful to have the resident's medical history including any insurance, doctor, and contacts for any questions the facility onboarding manager might have. This can aid in planning any special care the individual might need.
