At Pleasantville, we provide "loving care" to our residents. They are family. We have fun with them; we hug, we kiss on the arm or cheek, we dance, we do things to generate laughter. We prepare healthy meals. We provide little extras to help their strength, such as walnut meal or pecan meal (from the health food store) in their morning cereal. We make nice smooth banana or apple oatmeal. ummm, it taste so-oo-o good! We maintain a calm healthy environment conducive to peace of mind. Music is an integral part of daily routine to relax and nurture. There is daily exercise and activity. At bedtime, we pray with or for those who so desire. We say grace before meals. Infection control is practiced all the time. We wash those who cannot real good to help prevent UTI. Special attention is paid to their bowel elimination to ensure daily comfort. Personally, I think of myself as their eyes, their ears. Their everything. I look out for their comfort and well-being. Staff understands this. We have daily stand-up meetings/briefings Regular in-services to enhance awareness of resident’s specific condition. We provide Level 1 2 & 3 levels of care in a quiet residential neighborhood.
