    Our premier residential care homes specialize in caring for those who live with memory loss. Introduced to Edina, Minnesota in 1997, the first home was called the Interlachen Home. The other homes are called the Braemar Home, Braemar Hills Home, Chestnut Hills Home and the Loch Wood Home. Four of the homes are located in Edina, Minnesota and one of the homes is located in Wayzata, Minnesota. We offer warmth and familiarity of a true natural home setting combined with professionally managed, superior care. The homes are located in actual and beautiful residential neighborhoods with nothing unnoticed; from the actual home cooked meals to the harpist in the family room. At English Rose Suites, we believe that no loved one’s quality of life should end just because they have dementia. English Rose Suites: A Comfortable Place to Hang My Hat… The hallmark and the heart of English Rose Suite are to combine quality daily care with unconditional love and a compassionate touch for our residents and their families. Our philosophy, based on many years of professional experiences, embraces a truly holistic, high touch approach. English Rose Suites is based on a care model that strives for optimal health and addresses the spiritual, social, psychological and biological aspects of the whole person…Never forgetting that it has to come full circle for every individual we touch. Our Mission: We are dedicated to surpass all expectations for bringing remarkable, loving and compassionate care to our residents and their families. Our Vision: To change the landscape of memory care forever… Our core values enable us to develop a foundation of trust with our residents and their families… but we do not stop there. We continually strive to improve on what it is that we do daily. This is the basis for us to meet all the guiding principles as outlined in this document. We must live our Mission, Vision and Core Values every day for this is what we are… continuously measured by others in the healthcare arena. English Rose Suites looks at all aspects of daily life as opportunities to engage residents. This transforms our mission and vision into 12 distinct hallmarks that help us engage our residents and their families to enjoy life through naturally occurring experiences. For example, residents are able to enjoy familiar activities in their kitchen such as baking, meal preparation and washing dishes. These activities bring purpose for the person and emotional satisfaction. The 12 hallmarks we utilize into our monthly activity calendar and in every day life are as follows: 1. Cognitive/Intellectual 2. Sensory stimulation 3. Socialization 4. Creative 5. Productive/purposeful/life skills 6. Spiritual enrichment 7. Emotionally supportive/one on one 8. Physical activity/exercise 9. Personal cares 10. Special events/outings 11. Outdoor enjoyment 12. Intergenerational Outings are a special item to mention here as these activities truly bring the joy of life back into smiles and the brightness of their eyes going to the botanical gardens to going to a lake cabin for the day. We believe that our performance improvement process for English Rose Suites comes inherently by following the following nine essential but also progressive care goals. 1. Communication with Residents and Family 2. Decision Making about Care and Treatment 3. Care Provision, Coordination and Communication when Residents Choose Hospice Services 4. Assessment and Care for Physical Symptoms, Including Pain and the following: a. Adequate food and fluid consumption b. Pain management c. Social Engagement and Involvement in Meaningful Activities d. Safety/Prevention Plans for resident wandering, falls, maintaining a restraint free environment of care and reduction of medication errors e. Continuous monitoring of bruise/skin tears, unexpected medical episodes 5. Assessment and Care for Behavioral Symptoms 6. Psychosocial and Spiritual Support of Residents 7. Family Participation in Resident’s End-of-life

    Staff certifications and training:
    English Rose Suites Hiring Process: All prospective new employees have to go through the hiring process. Our hiring process involves a four-step process. 1.) Group Interview- A group interview is held with select prospective applicants. This is the opportunity to dialogue and interact with each person interested in the job. At this time, a review of the job description and expectations of English Rose Suites are reviewed with the prospective candidates. 2.) Formal Interview- A formal interview is scheduled by the Administrator and possibly other members of the Administrative Team, with an individual employee from the group interview. This is the formal interview. 3.) Pre-employment Job Shadow Process- Each individual who passes the group and formal interview will be scheduled for a pre-shadow. The pre-employment shadow process is each interviewee spending an hour in the Home, following a Team Mentor and observing. The pre-employment shadow allows the Team Mentor to explain the role of a HHA at English Rose Suites, give a tour of the Home, explain the delegated nursing duties involved in the role as well as cooking and housekeeping and for the prospective employee to ask questions. The Team Mentor gives feedback to the Administrator after the shadow is complete. The Administrator then will call the prospective employee to either come in for a final meeting or let the applicant know their application will stay on file. 4.) Job Offer- If the Administrator feels the applicant is a fit for hire for the position; the Administrator has the applicant come in to meet and to discuss the scheduling needs at ERS and make a job offer. As long as the scheduling availability of the employee meets our needs and the applicant accepts the offer, the new employee is hired. We are finding at English Rose Suites that this process improves the new hire orientation process with fewer dropouts during orientation and increased number of completions for the 90-day orientation process. English Rose Suites Orientation Process: At English Rose Suites, we are always evolving our orientation process. The orientation curriculum always needs to meet Class F/ state guidelines, but also must be the most effective training for each one of our new employees. Orientation is when the core training occurs and our curriculum is based on what each employee needs to produce the outcomes that matter – providing and facilitating the highest quality of life for each resident at ERS. Our orientation process begins with a four day, eight hour, classroom/in-home training. This involves all members of the Administrative Team and Nursing. The process continues with each new employee having a three-day shadow process in the Home. The three-day process is outlined as follows: Day One: The new employee follows the Team Mentor or designated Mentor for an entire, regular shift in the Home. The New Employee observes the cares and delegated nursing tasks, gets to know the residents life stories and approaches used and starts to communicate and interact with the residents and staff. Orientation information is reviewed and put into practice hands-on for the first time. Day Two: The new employee works side by side with the Team Mentor or designated Mentor in the Home for an entire shift and continues the training process. The new employee is training hands-on with all delegated duties and interacting with the residents. Day Three: The New Employee takes the lead and completes all designated duties assigned in the Home. Team Mentor or designated Mentor follows the new employee for the entire shift. The Team Mentor or designated Mentor observes and gives guidance, correction and constructive feedback to the new employee and is available for the new employee to ask questions. The shadow process is completed when each new employee, as well as the Team Mentor, are comfortable providing care for the residents and has a clear understanding and can successfully perform all HHA delegated tasks.

    Special care programs offered for Alzheimer's and Dementia residents:
    At English Rose Suites, each home is unique in design but consistent with individualized care. All our homes have a resident to staff:resident ratio 1:3 on days, evenings, and a 1:6 awake staff at night. When needed, management does not hesitate to increase staffing based on the dynamics of each home. Nursing, along with the Administrator, meets with the family before a move-in occurs in order to complete a thorough assessment and create an individual care plan that helps develop an orientation to resident cares, address medical needs, determine a safety plan and consider a care plan to meet a resident’s needs. Each resident has his/her specific care plan that is developed jointly by nursing, administration and programming that includes the valuable input of the resident’s loved ones even before the resident moves into English Rose Suites. The family is motivated to complete a “LIFE STORY” exercise about their family member prior to move in. This supports the individualized and holistic approach to support the move-in transition. Our programming experts oversee this very important component and we utilize our resources from the Mayo Clinic, the Alzheimer’s Association, national dementia experts and others in order to provide and plan for an optimum program for our residents. Family members have the opportunity to come in and meet the staff prior to move-in so that any concerns or questions they might need answered may be addressed at that time. This also assures them that communication is a priority for us at English Rose Suites. It is of utmost importance that our families know that their ideas and opinions are honored and that they are listened to from the start. This process helps ensure a comfort level at the beginning of the journey with their experience with English Rose Suites. At any given time, there may be a number of family dynamics/struggles taking place. We respect each person’s position regarding where each may be in coping with his or her loved one’s disease process. Interventions may include 1:1 family dementia education training and support throughout their loved one’s stay in order to help bridge the hardship of dealing with the disease. This identified family need could also be met through family support groups that can be offered at English Rose Suites. Transitioning residents to English Rose Suites is an “all hands on deck” process. This process includes but is not limited to nursing personnel educating care givers on who the new resident was in his/her past life as well as is in his/her current life. It also includes development of the resident service plan, planning an individualized program and ensuring that caregivers understand the appropriate use of therapeutic fibs and how they might fit into activities of daily living for the resident. The staff at English Rose Suites are taught to focus on the families as much as we focus on the resident during a transitional adjustment. We know that communication is a top priority and families are strongly and eagerly encouraged to be a vital part of the transition process of their loved one. It is impossible to give the most loving and compassionate care to a person with memory loss unless all staff responsible for their care is intimately aware and briefed about the resident’s LIFE STORY. The first step for complete success is to ensure that our leadership enables our staff at English Rose Suites to read the LIFE STORY and incorporate it into the resident’s everyday home life. The LIFE STORY is a valuable care tool that captures the essence of what is and was so meaningful to our residents during their lifetime. We have a detailed LIFE STORY form that all caregivers are oriented and trained on how to sit down and ask questions from the resident’s LIFE STORY. There is the example taught in training similar to the show of the 1960’s TV show called “THIS IS YOUR LIFE”. Scrap Booking albums are incorporated into every day life motivating much discussion with reside
