Keep Your Loved One Safe this Winter with Assisted Living by Hillcrest

Local 5 Live Features

When we talk about preparing for Winter, it’s not just your car or furnace you need to think about.

Make sure your loved one is safe as well with help from Assisted Living by Hillcrest.

Take a look at these questions to consider if your loved one should used assisted living:

Is your loved one safe to be home through the winter?

Will they have stimulation and opportunity to socialize during the winter months if they live alone?

Will they feel isolated and/or lonely?

Are they receiving proper nutrition and meals?

Are they cooking for themselves?

When looking at all options, it is more than what the facility physically looks like.

What is the staff to resident ratio?

Are there nurses on staff?

Are provider/physician services offered?

What type of training does staff receive, and how often?

Is there separate departments (dietary, maintenance, housekeeping), or do the caregivers not only assist the residents but cook, clean, do laundry and housekeeping?

What is the food like, is it home made?

Is the facility able to accommodate special dietary needs: gluten free, vegan, diabetic diet, puree?

Is the facility clean and kept up?

What is offered for activities, stimulation and “Life Enrichment?”

What sets the facility apart from others?

You’ll find three facilities in the Hillcrest Family: Allouez Parkside Village One and Two, and also Brillion West Haven.
