OUR HOME LIFE

DIVERSE AND PLENTIFUL ACTIVITIES
The normal routine for Jehovah's Witnesses of regular field service, family worship, and congregation meeting attendance is encouraged and supported. Our activities :

  • Reading
  • Gardening
  • Knitting
  • Singing choirs
  • Television
  • Use of the Internet and the jw.org site

PERSONAL CARE
Upon admission, the staff draws up a detailed service plan which will serve as the organizing document for all personal care services provided to each resident. The plan specifies the personal care services and medications that the resident needs. In addition, it contains information about the resident's background, family, interests, hobbies, and favorite foods.

  • Know the background
  • Respond to the family's needs

MORE THAN CAREGIVERS !
Specially trained and certified caregivers staff our residence and provide a wide range of assistance—including personal care, social and spiritual activities, meal preparation and service, light housekeeping and laundry.
Caregivers become like family. They know you by name and honor your preferences. Above all, they are your spiritual brothers and sisters, and truly care about you.

  • Can you volunteer ?

MEALS
Food is important and sharing a meal is an opportunity to develop close personal relationships with others. Meals are served in the dining room—the natural gathering place in any home. Healthy meals using fresh ingredients are prepared right in the open kitchen. Residents are encouraged to bring their favorite recipes and help with the preparation. You are also welcome to invite guests to a meal. Snacks are available in the house kitchen for the residents anytime day or night.

INCLUDED SERVICES

VOLUNTEERS

Requirements
Aside from our trained staff, there are plenty of opportunities for brothers and sisters to volunteer their time and resources.

Those that wish to volunteer their time to work with the residents must be dedicated, baptized Witnesses of Jehovah, who are in good standing in the congregation, and who have a sincere concern for elderly faithful ones. SEE ONLINE FORM.

INDEPENDANCE

Autonomy and privacy
The 'small house' model incorporates an innovative design and an organizational structure that allow the care partners to be completely engaged with the operation of the home as well as the lives of the residents.

This model of care creates an intentional community that honors autonomy and privacy as well as provide opportunities to developing close personal relationships between residents, their families and staff.

You and the other residents will work together with your care partners to plan and select menus, activities, and the personalization of your individual suite. The care partners—a self-managed work team—will use coaching and problem solving skills to make necessary decisions as to the operation of the residence.
