7 Reasons Why The Courville Communities is Where Better Living Begins
At The Courville Communities our mission is to provide the best care and carefree living possible for every resident so that all of their needs – physical, medical, and psychological – are met.
But a lot of facilities can say that; The Courville Communities raises the bar by going beyond the basics to provide a truly exceptional experience for all of our residents. What is it that makes The Courville Communities so special? We’re glad you asked! Here are 7 things that set us apart from the rest:
Our residents enjoy restaurant-style dining with three meals a day prepared by chefs trained in the culinary arts, and served by a professional wait staff. We believe that food does more than nourish our bodies; it feeds our souls; and to that end we provide the best, nutritional, healthy, and delicious food possible. But don’t take our word for it: Check out this video of two of our chefs featured on a local TV show.
Many of our staff members have been here for 10 years or more because we invest in our staff just as we invest in our residents — by providing a working environment that allows them to focus on their job. Our staff members stay current with healthcare trends and complete required annual training. In addition, all employees pass a criminal background check prior to employment. All nursing staff are licensed and in good standing with the Board of Nursing. You are in good hands!
Our Medical Capabilities
We have a medical director who visits residents in their suites, as well as licensed nursing care from our passionate and dedicated nursing team, which is available 24 hours a day. Our professional staff also provides medication administration, assistance with activities of daily living, palliative and hospice care, on-site physical, occupational, and speech therapy, transportation to local dialysis and cancer treatment centers, and so much more. The medical director visits our residents in their new lodgings and is happy to assume any new resident as a patient. However, it is your choice to remain with your primary care physician as long as that physician agrees.
Part of feeling your best involves looking your best and treating your body to the pampering it needs. With a beauty and barber shop on site, as well as a whirlpool tub, visiting massage therapist, podiatrist and more, residents can pamper themselves with a regular schedule.
In addition, we offer:
- Daily laundry and housekeeping
- Musical entertainment
- Religious services
- A Daily social hour with bar services and appetizers
- Basic cable and phone services (for a small fee).
Maintaining regular activities and incorporating new ones is encouraged at The Courville Communities. We have certified activity planners at each facility and residents are invited to participate in pre-arranged group activities that take place regularly. Bingo, group exercise, and crafts are among many of the daily activities. Presentations by local authors, art exhibits, topical discussions and other outside speaker events are planned monthly. Other on-site events include:
- Wii bowling tournaments
- Resident craft fairs
- Expos held by various businesses and organizations
- Health fairs.
Off-site events include:
- Baseball games
- Trips to the beach
- Local tours
- Other seasonal events.
From ice sculptures to cupcake towers, holiday music to festive cocktails, we take pride in creating the perfect atmosphere for residents, their families, and friends to all gather together to celebrate the special times of the year.
Our Focus on Family
We believe in an interdisciplinary approach to care, which means all of our residents and their families are involved in developing their personal plans of care. We pledge to maintain open communication between everyone to ensure we are all working towards the same goal. There are no formal visiting hours and our community is accessible to all residents and their families: We welcome guests to visit the center and join their loved ones for meals, activities, and special occasions – any time! In addition, we are happy to take residents and their friends to see their grandchildren (or other family members) perform in school, extracurricular or community programs.
