Our team works with each of our residents to ensure that – when the time comes – they have the tools and capabilities to continue their recovery at home. Discharge from Medford to home requires the successful transfer of information from clinicians to the patient and family, in order to reduce adverse events and prevent readmissions. With the guidance of the resident and resident’s family, we will follow guidelines that ensure continued success at home:
- Conduct a home evaluation prior to discharge
- Review medications
- Highlight warning signs and problems
- Explain test results
- Make follow up appointments
- Coordinate with community providers and physicians
- Provide patient and family education prior to discharge, including Medication Administration management and safety awareness
Our residents enrich our community by socializing and expressing themselves in activities catered to their interests. Spearheaded by our talented and enthusiastic Recreational Director, our activities are well known for their creativity. Our cooking program – for example – allows resident to select an old-time favorite that brings back fond memories, while Sing-Along music therapy brings our community together through song. To name some others: Movie & Manicures, Monday Madness, You Be the Judge, Paper Fun, Poem Readings, Word Scramble… and many more.
Entertainers, singers, and comedians are frequent visitors at Medford. Some of our more popular performers are Music with Fran, Music with Joey, Rosary 2 and the famous Father-Son Duet team.
Outdoor Patio and Activities
In spring and summer, residents enjoy our manicured lawn and outdoor sitting area, in addition to BBQ lunches and outdoor-themed activities.
Whether it be catching up on local news, reading and writing mail, joining a social group, meditating or catching up with family and friends on the phone – our residents have the free time and support to pursue any interests. Our brightly-lit day rooms with beautiful views of Medford, MA provide the perfect venue to enjoy a book or a cup of coffee.
“This is delicious!” It’s a common refrain in our dining rooms, as residents enjoy gourmet meals customized for individual appetites and dietary concerns.
