In this interview, David McMullen, Executive Director of Development & Marketing, provides an overview of the facilities and services offered by The GreenFields Continuing Care Community.
Q: Please give us an overview of services offered at The GreenFields.
A: To start, GreenField Health & Rehabilitation Center offers wonderful physical therapy. We call our short-term therapy “subacute.” It’s short-term care for various conditions like orthopedic injuries and surgeries and joint replacements. We also see some folks with spinal surgeries or those who are recovering from amputations, motor vehicle accidents, or general illness and hospitalizations. People needing rehabilitation for various conditions find GreenField Health & Rehabilitation Center to be a wonderful place for them to recover and get back to being their old self — or possibly even better than their old self.
At GreenField Health & Rehabilitation Center, we offer rehabilitation services on both an inpatient and outpatient basis to folks of all ages. Our residents can continue to come back in two or three times a week, or whenever is needed, for all kinds of outpatient physical therapy.
We also offer occupational therapy and speech and language therapy. We offer a wonderful aquatic therapy program, which provides a great workout without the pain and the stress and the muscle fatigue that’s usually associated with a land-based exercise.
Q: Do you often find that people don’t realize the services aren’t just for seniors or know that you offer a care for a huge variety of sports-related injuries?
A: Yes. One of the goals for our marketing department is to try to continue to get the word out about our physical therapy services and how they are available for anyone who needs our care. It’s not unusual at all to walk through the therapy clinic here and see a high school athlete being treated for a sports injury.
A lot of folks come to know The GreenFields Continuing Care Community when they move into our residential apartment homes at GreenField Manor. We have a variety of nine different floor plans here, including balconies and patios or fireplaces. Our residents enjoy restaurant-style dining with a flexible meal plan and a fully-equipped kitchen. There’s also a washer and dryer and a 24-hour emergency call system. Our residents also enjoy a weekly housekeeping service. They don’t have to do any housekeeping at all, which is a treat. There are many other wonderful services at GreenField Manor.
Because we are a continuing care community, we offer many different levels of care. Our residents receive priority access to all levels of care.
What we often find is that a resident will move into GreenField Manor and, as time does its thing — unfortunately, as that resident ages — they need a little more help with what we call “activities of daily living.” For that, we offer two options here on campus.
We offer GreenField Court, which is our assisted living apartment homes. We offer 49 assisted living apartments. The residents and family members bring in the resident’s furnishings and their decorations from home. The residents at GreenField Court enjoy three wonderful home-style meals every day. They receive 24-hour assistance with daily living, which includes bathing and dressing to medication management and anything else that they might need.
For a resident that needs just a little bit more, we have enhanced assisted living at GreenField Terrace. That’s for folks who, in addition to needing help with activities of daily living, may have mobility issues that require a higher level of care. GreenField Terrace consists of four different houses, which all surround a beautiful enclosed courtyard. The residents can, in the good weather, garden and enjoy the outdoors without any risk of wandering. It’s completely secure.
GreenField Terrace also offers memory care enhanced assisted living. We opened GreenField Terrace in 2013 and it has been a wonderful addition to The GreenFields Continuing Care Community. We have residents with Alzheimer’s and dementia who require specially-trained care providers and a facility that’s designed specifically with their needs in mind. They also receive emotional and spiritual support, which is so important in memory care.
As the residents here on campus age and need a higher level of care, we offer GreenField Health & Rehabilitation Center, which provides respite care, skilled nursing, and long-term care.
Respite care is a wonderful feature. That’s an opportunity for an individual who’s normally cared for at home to come to The GreenFields for a limited amount of time. That provides the caregiver who cares for the individual at home with a very well-deserved rest or a vacation. The caregiver has the peace of mind of knowing that their loved one is receiving wonderful care while they get a little bit of a break.
