The Household Approach
The 60-bed Apostles Center is made up of three households, each accommodating 15 to 22 residents. Our households differ from a traditional nursing home in a number of ways:
- Household staff members work together as a team to meet the needs of residents.
- Each household team is charged with working together efficiently, with a high degree of trust to provide the highest-quality, most home-like care. Team members are trained to work through communication and conflict issues.
- Household staff members work in blended roles and assist with light housekeeping, laundry, and dining service. The team is not solely responsible for these tasks but works cooperatively with these service areas in order to provide the best possible service and resident-centered care.
- Each household features a lounge where residents and visitors gather, small group activities take place, care planning meetings are held, and household staff performs duties, such as documentation and shift-to-shift reporting.
- One household is specifically dedicated to residents in need of Memory Support.
