We provide care that closely mirrors the experience of living at home with family caregivers. Our model of care is a welcome replacement for the traditional nursing home!
In many nursing homes, a very important element has disappeared from the culture: HOME. We believe that our seniors deserve a life that is as close to home as possible. Our unique Household model of care creates “HOME” where residents experience joy, dignity, and comfort in their daily living.
|Old Institutional Way||Our Way|
|Long hallways, semi-private rooms, central dining.||Small groups of residents, all with private rooms, in Households with their own kitchens, dining rooms, fireplace living rooms and homey furnishings.|
|Everyone eats the same meals at the same time.||Residents eat what they want, when they want. Just like at home.|
|Everyone is awakened at the same time.||Residents wake up when they want to. Just like at home.|
|Low staff-to-resident ratios.||Impressive staffing ratios by the Minnesota Department of Health and Human Services.|
|Rotating staff, often supplemented with outside personnel from nursing pools.||Consistent staffing. No outside help from nursing pools. Residents and staff become family.|
|Staff plans daily resident activities.||Community Circles of residents and staff direct their life in each Household.|
Episcopal Homes provides long-term care services in two residences, Episcopal Church Home and The Gardens.
