Lunch, afternoon snack, and Dinner provide a variety of foods prepared to meet nutritional needs and accommodate specialized diets. Alternate choices are offered if a resident chooses not to eat the planned meal. Coffee, Milk, Juice and flavored water are available with all meals and a hydration program is in place to encourage fluid intake.
To promote a sense of purpose and contribution to the community, residents are encouraged to work side by side with our care staff to help fold laundry, set up tables for meals or crafts, and assist with simple meal preparation such as peeling potatoes! The day to day household chores are an important way to preserve self-worth and are an essential part of the plan of care!
At the end of the day, residents can unwind watching an old movie in our Community room equipped with comfortable furniture and lift chairs. Cozy blankets and stuffed animals are always available for resident use. When the resident chooses to go to bed, our staff are available to assist.
An RN is on sight Monday through Friday and available by phone after hours and on week-ends to address any medical needs or concerns that a resident may have. Olive Branch partners with other providers to bring in Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Skilled Nursing, Hospice, Podiatry, Lab and Physician Services.
Community outings are planned for our residents during the spring, summer and fall. Entertainment, volunteer groups and church communities are brought in to keep our residents involved in the community.
