As you age, staying fit and healthy becomes more important. Managing your health care is a high priority. At Carmel Valley Manor, we can help with both. Our first goal is preserving your independence. So to help maintain your wellness, we offer the following: a fully equipped fitness center with professional staff; swimming pool for lap swimming or water aerobics; scenic trails for enjoying nature and fresh air; a community garden where you can grow vegetables or flowers, and fresh, locally sourced meals in our elegant dining room.
But if your health care needs change, Life Care is there for your peace of mind. It’s like a gift that you give your children, and yourself. No need for them to worry, or you. Your support system is in place at all times, with an emergency response system, on-site clinic and licensed RN’s available 24 hours a day. If you need more care, like temporary in-home assistance or our Hillcrest assisted living — those are available, too. And it’s all covered in your basic fee structure. So you don’t have to face a major drain on your assets, even if you need long-term care. And that’s the kind of health care that makes you feel really good.
Health care hasn’t been this convenient since doctors made house calls. And, if you’d like, you can keep your primary physician. But right here at Carmel Valley Manor, we have a physician on-site three days a week. You can get your yearly physical or a flu shot. We can also provide referrals for x-rays, physical therapy, counseling, specialists and more. We even have an alert system for injuries, falls and sudden acute illness. It’s an incredible support system.
If the time comes that you need extra help in your daily life, Hillcrest Assisted Living is there for you. We’ll help make sure it’s a smooth transition. The first priority at Hillcrest is preserving your wellbeing, dignity and personal rights. When decisions are made, you and your family are always involved.
At Hillcrest, meals are served in the beautiful private dining room, snacks are available and fun activities are offered regularly. But when you need help, the highly trained staff is right there to assist you, whether it’s with medication, personal care, or other tasks, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Best of all, this higher level of care will not cost you more.
If you need round-the-clock nursing care, there’s our licensed health center. This is a great option if you’ve had surgery or an acute illness. It’s also appropriate for those who have memory issues or need respite care. Our skilled nurses believe in treating all with kindness, compassion, hospitality and professionalism. Generally, your care will be provided by a staff that already knows you and understands your health history. Yet all this is part of our comprehensive Life Care program. Here, you are surrounded by friends, and that may be the most reassuring thing of all.
