Laurieton Lakeside's Commitment to Quality Care
Why is it important to understand Direct Care Staff Ratios?
Simple. You want to know that the home has a high level of available staff ready to do a quality and comprehensive job for you or your loved one. Direct Care Staff Ratios are a great way to measure how one home compares to another.
We also strongly suggest that you ask homes whether they have a Registered Nurse onsite 24 hours every day. Registered nurses play a pivotal role in a several key areas related to care. These areas include medication management, advanced behavioural management, wound care and emergency responses.
Take confidence in knowing that Laurieton Lakeside has Registered Nurses onsite every hour of every day!
Holistic healthcare is complete care that considers the physical, emotional, social, economic, and spiritual needs of the person.
At Laurieton Lakeside, we believe that holistic care cannot be achieved through nursing care alone. So, what else needs to be considered?
A key focus needs to also be placed on:
- A comprehensive lifestyles program that encourages residents to continue living a healthy and happy life.
The availability of services for residents to utilise at their discretion.
- Common spaces that promote unity and a community feel amongst residents and relatives.
- A care management team that delivers on what they promise.
Technology plays a major role in ensuring a home’s records and data are managed and stored efficiently. Simple, easy to use technology means that staff have more time to spend with residents, and less time filling out paperwork.
Laurieton Lakeside uses an electronic care management system for resident database management, care files and medication management.
