What Makes an Assisted Living Community Great?

MarketConnect, UT San Diego Presented by Oakmont of Escondido Hills, Senior Living Community Ryan Test, Executive Director at Oakmont of Escondido Hills Senior Living Community, is aware that finding the right community for an individual or loved one to call home isn’t an easy task. How does one determine what makes an assisted living community great, and how does a person know if they are choosing the best community? “What makes an assisted living community great is the people, hands down, without a doubt,” said Test. “I have a saying: you can come in and buy bells and whistles and shiny chandeliers, but at the end of the day when the lights go out, what is important are the people. They are the individuals here every day taking care of your loved one or yourself.” “Oakmont of Escondido Hills is beautiful,” continued Test, “but this experience is really about the people. My hiring philosophy is simple, I can teach people to be great care managers, but I can’t teach people to care. Anytime we hire new employees, we look for genuine people who have a good heart and a true passion and love for seniors. We want people who want to help others. Maybe they’ve been a caregiver for years and maybe not, but we can teach them the skills needed to be an outstanding caregiver, but we can’t give someone a heart.” Hire for passion and heart, continually train for skills and knowledge. Test advised the following when searching for the best assisted living community for you or a loved one to call home: Trust your gut! Does the community have a good Vibe/energy? Are residents, staff, and family members laughing, smiling, and genuinely [...]

Retirement community expands memory care wing

ESCONDIDO — The Oakmont of Escondido Hills retirement community recently completed an expansion of its on-site memory care community to provide more care options to the growing number of local individuals affected by Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. According to the San Diego Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, there are currently 60,000 county residents living with Alzheimer’s disease. The number is expected to grow. To date, there are no proven methods to reverse, prevent or cure Alzheimer’s which, according to the Alzheimer’s Association, affects 13 percent of the population over the age of 65. On average, those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s live roughly eight years after their symptoms become noticeable to others. The facility, at 3012 Bear Valley Pkwy S Escondido, CA 92025, was expanded to accommodate an additional five residents. It provides residents access to the specialized memory care services required to care for the physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs of individuals with early to advanced stages of memory loss. The community focuses on prolonging a sense of independence, improving communication and mood, encouraging physical activity, and driving social interaction among residents while providing the nurturing and safe atmosphere dementia residents need to maintain quality of life, health and happiness. Oakmont Senior Living is a family owned and operated company founded by William P. Gallaher with more than 30 planned and developed retirement communities in the western United States.
