Rehab to Home

The short stay rehabilitation at Frontier Therapy at Peaks Care Center offers the care and therapy services needed following an illness or injury and can provide a bridge between an acute hospital stay and a safe return home.
Frontier Therapy Center of Longmont is a 21-bed, in-patient therapy center specializing in the needs of adults. Our unique environment offers the answers you need so you can leave the facility with true peace of mind. We provide a transitional apartment and kitchenette to our patients to give them the opportunity to function on their own or with the level of help they will receive once they return home. During a patient’s stay at this transitional apartment, the therapy team and the patient can identify any areas of function that need to be addressed before the patient is discharged. Our primary goal is to help patients optimize functional ability and maintain independence. We encourage open communication among staff, therapists, families and patients. Upon admission, goals are identified so a treatment plan can be developed. Scheduled family conferences are also available.

Adult Daycare Centers

Traditionally, an adult daycare center is a non-medical, non-residential center supporting adults social, medical, nutritional, and daily living activity needs in a professionally staffed, group setting. These facilities provide seniors with transitional care and short-term rehabilitation following hospital discharge. You can sign up for one day a week, five days a week, or just come in as you need to.When to Consider Adult DayCare. According to the National Adult Day Services Association and the AARP, one might want to start looking into daycare when they start to see the following signs:The senior can no longer structure their own daily activitiesThere is a concernHere is a breakdown of the various types of settings and services you might find.Social Day Service SettingsThese programs usually offer nutritious meals, snacks, personal care, socialization, exercise, recreational activities, outings, and educational programs. These settings are often informal, and, typically, the care recipient attending these facilities is very independent.Medical Day Service SettingsThese programs are often housed and sponsored by hospitals or nursing facilities, or you will find free-standing centers. Medical and/or non-medical personnel are available at all times. Staff may include on-call physicians and nurses, therapists, social workers, certified nursing assistants (CNAs), personal care workers, drivers, and program directors.Specialized Day Service CentersThese settings are appropriate for patients with dementia or Alzheimers disease. They offer a safe and stimulating environment and provide socialization activities and outings.Shopping for Adult Service CareThe first step is to determine the primary need of the senior and then consider the following important aspects of adult daycare:Do they provide round-trip transportation?Are they licensing for administering medicine and medical procedures?What are the professional qualifications of the staff?Do they have a schedule of activities?Do they have nutritious menus that meet the needs of the client?Do they have competitive prices for services offered?What payment source do they take? Is it a county or charity facility? Is the seniors income low enough to qualify for assistance? Will the long-term care insurance company accept this as a reimbursable expense? Does the facility accept Medicaid? Or Veteran Benefits?What is the staff to client ratio?Daycare CostsAccording to the U.S. Administration on Aging, costs for adult daycare can range from as little as $25 to more than $100 a day, depending upon factors such as what services are offered. The average cost is just under $70 a day.Unfortunately, Medicare typically doesnt cover the fees. However, many may be eligible for financial assistance through other government programs, such as Medicaid, the Veterans Health Administration, and other state agencies. That means adult daycare may be a more affordable option for caregivers seeking help and respite than hiring a worker to provide in-home care.If you would like help finding the perfect adult day program for you, please fill out this form and someone will get ahold of you.If you or an aging loved one are considering home care in Broomfield, CO please contact the caring staff at Talem Home Care & Placement Services today.

Four Important Considerations When Choosing Senior Placement

If your loved one has reached a point where she could use some assistance in her daily life, now is a great time to start looking into hiring a senior placement coordinator to help you find just the right place for Mom to live and thrive. It can seem overwhelming to do all of the research yourself so once you know what youre looking for, having a local senior placement professional help you narrow down your choices will help both you and Mom be happy with her new place of residence.Before you pick up the phone or click that contact button, talk to Mom about these four topics to help your senior placement coordinator begin her search for your family.Financial AbilityOne of the first things to talk about is how much your loved one is able to spend on her upcoming care location. You dont need to have an exact dollar amount, and your senior placement provider will be able to help you find more resources. Knowing the ballpark of what youre able to afford will help narrow the field and reduce the amount of stress that comes with looking into dozens of locations.LocationHaving a clear vision of where you want Mom to live will help your senior placement coordinator pick some perfect places for your loved one. There are two key pieces of location to consider.Type of residence. What type of home does your loved one want to live in? Does she want a large place with lots of activities and plenty of people to meet and make friends with? Maybe shed prefer a smaller, more intimate home that only has a few other roommates and a consistent elder care provider.Physical location. Are there family members that your loved one would like to live near so that they can visit easily? Maybe she has a preference for city life versus country life? Knowing what she prefers will keep her happy in her new home.Medical NeedsLetting your senior placement coordinator know your loved ones physical and cognitive needs will help her find a place that can care for all of your loved ones needs. You should also look into the future and try to foresee what future needs your loved one might have. Moving into a location that can add additional services or shift their care level as your loved ones needs change and help you avoid having to make her move again in the future. Faith or Cultural PreferencesFor many individuals, their faith or cultural traditions are an important part of who they are, and living in a community that supports those beliefs can help them find community and comfort in the practices that theyve participated in for their entire lives. Your loved one may not have the ability to travel to the faith services she wants as she ages, so having those offered onsite might be worth considering if that is an important part of her life.Knowing the answers to these four topics will help your senior placement coordinator bring appropriate options to the table.If you or an aging loved one are considering senior placement in Aurora, CO please contact the caring staff at Talem Home Care & Placement Services today.

How Do I Keep My Parents from Falling at Home

As my parents and grandparents age, I often think about the comparison between the struggles they face as they age and the struggles I faced growing up. For example, when I was a child, they were always telling me to be careful. I often heard dont climb that tree too high or you will fall or stop jumping on the bed before you fall.  They were worried that I would hurt myself and break a bone.I am sure that most of us remember similar conversations growing up. Now that I am older, I find myself having those same conversations, only this time its me worried about my parents safety. I finally understand what I put them through, but I have the same loving concern for their safety that they had for me.The biggest concern for most older adults is staying independent and living at home as long as possible. The biggest threat to that independence is a simple slip and fall.  Here are some sobering facts:Falls are the #1 cause of injury-related deaths for those 65 andEvery 11 seconds an older adult is in an emergency room being treated for aFor those over 65, the odds of falling are one-in-three.Of those that are injured from a fall in a home, only 28% returned to their home after hospitalization; half require ongoing care in a skilled nursingOver 2.8 million people are treated for calls and over 800,000 are hospitalized for fall-related injuries each year.However, there is good news! There is something you can do to help prevent your loved ones from falling.  Research has shown that there are four main areas to address when preventing falls.  Those are:1) vision screening2) home safety assessments and modifications3) medication reviews and modifications4) services to improve physical mobility, agility, and balance. Focusing on one of these areas, however, is not enough.A combination of all four of the areas is the best approach.The problem is that these services are typically offered by different providers, and they are fragmented.
