Social services, occupational therapy, therapeutic activities and a registered nurse provide the right level of care for your loved one.
Nursing: Our registered nurse monitors the general health of each member whether he or she is dealing with the effects of a stroke, diabetes, heart disease, depression, memory loss or other chronic illness or disability. Each person’s specific health needs are addressed in partnership with their family and their personal physician.
NWADH’s registered nurse offers these services:
- Nursing assessments and treatments, medication assistance, wound care and diabetic management
- Coordination of care with physicians, community resources and family members
Occupational Therapy: Licensed therapists help people with a variety of physical abilities improve their strength and mobility through:
- Individual assessments and therapies + exercise and strengthening programs
- Balance and ambulation programs + a stationary bicycle program
Members receive an assessment by an occupational therapist every three months. A customized care plan is created to monitor each participant’s progress.
Social Services: Northwest Adult Day Health & Wellness Center’s social worker walks families through the intake process.
Coordinating referrals and communicating with Whatcom County eldercare agencies help NWADH’s social worker ensure everything is in place for new program members and their caregivers. Social services also:
- Administer cognitive assessments
- Consult with community resource providers, caregivers and physicians as needed
Activity Specialist: The activities specialist plans and implements a daily therapeutic program that is designed to meet the physical, social, spiritual, creative and emotional needs of your loved one.
Adult day health in Lynden also has a team of program assistants who provide personal care, assistance with activities and food service.
