What’s New At Christwood
You probably know of Christwood as the well-established premier retirement community on the Northshore offering a complete range of care and an abundance of services in Independent Living, Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing with elegant apartments and beautifully manicured grounds. But did you know that, in addition, Christwood now offers Cognitive Memory Care and Adult Day Stay service?
Christwood has opened Longleaf at Christwood for residents and adults in the greater community aged 60 and above who are having difficulty with cognitive memory decline. Licensed by the Department of Health and Hospitals as a Level 3 Adult Residential Care Provider, Longleaf offers a full range of assisted living support with a focus on memory care. Individualized care plans are developed by a team of professionals working closely with each resident, their family members and doctor. All staff members receive specialized training directed by Dr. Jeff Keller, project consultant from Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge.
Residents have a choice of 28 private studio homes to personalize with their own furnishings, and they are provided with many services: bathing and grooming assistance, weekly housekeeping and daily touchups, linen and laundry service, transportation to medical appointments, three chef-prepared meals served daily in the Longleaf dining room, 24-hour emergency call service and more. If needed, physical, occupational and speech therapies are available, as well as skilled nursing care. Most importantly, 24-hour licensed nurse staffing is provided.
Needless to say, Longleaf at Christwood adds an important dimension to the already significant offerings by Christwood to its residents and the Northshore community.
