Regular Comprehensive Assessments
Before your loved one arrives at their new apartment at AltaVita, we perform a thorough assessment to determine their needs and desires so that we may meet each one in an appropriate, respectful and supportive way. Every six months, or if your loved one’s condition changes, we will hold a reassessment to make sure every AltaVita resident’s needs are met at all times.
The importance and value of having professional caregivers safely administer medications to an individual with memory-related problems are paramount at AltaVita. Our staff is responsible for organizing and administering each resident’s medications as prescribed by their physician.
