The Assisted Living Program at Good Shepherd Fairview Home at Binghamton offers a variety of services to seniors who need daily assistance but generally do not require daily skilled services. The Assisted Living Program provides 24-hour care and supervision, including assistance with dressing, personal hygiene, bathing, mobility, and assistance with incontinence management, all within an environment made to feel like home. Nursing and therapy services will be arranged for individual needs. Services also include medication supervision, laundry, housekeeping, three meals a day, transportation, and case management.
There is a country kitchen in the core area of the floor. It is stocked with snacks and drinks, and these are available 24 hours a day.
As a resident in the Assisted Living Program you will enjoy the privacy of your own private room and bathroom, which includes a walk-in shower. Residents may choose to bring their own furniture or rooms can be furnished by the Home.
Available on a fee-for-service basis:
Residents in the Assisted Living Program enjoy the many social, religious and therapeutic recreation programs the Home offers. Using a person-centered care approach, residents’ needs are identified and written into individualized care plans that are overseen by the licensed home care agency and the case manager. Residents are encouraged to participate in their plans of care. Consultation with a professional nurse and dietician are also available.
The Assisted Living Residence (ALR) at Good Shepherd Fairview Home at Binghamton offers, in addition to the ALP features above, 24-hour on-site supervision for seniors who are medically stable but may need some assistance and supervision. The ALR provides assistance with personal care.
Also available within the Assisted Living Residence is the Enhanced Assisted Living Residence (EALR) which allows us to provide additional services and increased nursing care for residents without them having to leave their existing room.
Individuals can live in our EALR even if they need another person’s assistance to walk, transfer, climb or descent stairs, or operate medical equipment. Here we can provide as much independence as possible while offering the services needed to ensure reaching maximum potential, and our single rooms ensure privacy while receiving that care. These extra services can delay and in some cases prevent having to access skilled nursing home care for residents who exceed certain retention standards of adult homes, enriched housing programs or assisted living residences.
