Services & Therapies
Barss Residential Care provides an environment that stimulates our residents’ intellectual, physical and spiritual life. Although our Michigan senior living facilities and adult brain injury facilities are separate buildings, both groups of residents benefit from services that include:
• Twenty-four hour care with a staff/resident ratio that far exceeds the industry norm for adult care assisted living. This additional staffing insures that each patient receives careful monitoring and prompt and attentive care.
• Personal care that includes bathing and dressing, laundry, escort to meals and activities, transfer and mobility assistance, medication distribution, catheter care, incontinence management, health education and health care monitoring to all of our patients no matter if they’re long term occupants or seeking temporary foster care.
• Three meals/day and snacks are provided in two spacious and attractive dining facilities. Special diets are provided upon recommendation of the resident’s physician.
• On-call physicians, geriatric doctors, podiatrists and on-site nursing supervision. Other professional services offered include physiatrists, neurologists, neuro-psychologists and social workers.
• On-site Physical, Occupational, Speech, Recreational, Music, Horticultural and Pet Therapy. All residents receive quarterly assessments and evaluations by therapists at no charge
• Developed working relationships with local hospitals, vocational rehabilitation agencies and community re-entry programs
• Transportation and accompaniment by a staff member to and from doctor’s appointments
• On-site beauty parlor
Here at Barss Residential Care, you can rest assure that all of our Michigan facilities are equipped with the professional staff and tools required to ensure we provide all of our senior living and brain injury residents the best care they deserve. We strive to go beyond what traditional nursing homes offer their residents to give all of our occupants a comfortable and stimulating environment no matter how long they decide to stay.
