What kind of health plan can I expect?
Your unique care plan will act as a road map to accomplishing your individual goals. While we will use our specialized training and assessment skills to guide you and offer professional advice, the plan is oriented to your special needs and preferences. Our first care plan meeting will occur shortly after your arrival and scheduled so that you and your family (if you choose) can attend. We encourage active participation and input into your care plan, as it will be designed to suit your specific needs. Once you’ve signed off on your initial plan, you and your health team will meet as regularly as necessary to discuss, track, and evaluate your progress and any measurable outcomes. As the patient, you (and your family) are always able to direct and modify your treatment to assure your goals and health are maximized.
“Health Team” definition: Your health team includes you, your family, professional nurses, the nursing assistants who care for you, the dietary director, social worker, therapeutic activities professional, and therapists (physical, occupational, speech) that you and your physician have determined will be helpful.
What are food options available at Arlington Health and Rehabilitation?
There is nothing standard about the dining experience at Arlington Health and Rehabilitation. Before we can fully heal our physical self, we must also heal our emotional self. To us, the nourishment received through a delicious meal enjoyed in a relaxed, welcoming environment is just as important to the healing process as anything else. We believe, to some extent, this can be done through an elevated diet.
Unlike most nursing homes, Arlington Health and Rehabilitation provides a restaurant-style dining environment whereby our residents have the option to order each meal off a full menu. This amenity affords individuals with a sense of freedom and independence that is often lost within a nursing home setting.
Our dietary team takes great pride in the food that is prepared and served. Using the freshest ingredients and locally-grown produce whenever possible, our dedicated staff brings years of experience and a genuine sense of purpose to each meal.
While our dishes are always nutritious, well-balanced, and delicious, our dietary team works closely with a professional dietitian to ensure we’re adhering to any food restrictions due to diet, allergy, religious, or personal preference. We will meet with you upon admission to guarantee we are up to speed on your unique dietary needs and preferences so that your time with us is enjoyable and safe.
Our meals are served at regularly scheduled times in the social dining room. For those who prefer more private dining options, meals can also be served to you in your room. If you wish to have a guest at meal time, please just let the dietary staff know one hour prior to service (along with the number of visitors) and we’ll be happy to provide additional meals for a nominal fee.
We look forward to meeting (and feeding) you!
