Expert Care in Austin
Physician Medical Director and 24-Hour Nursing Care
When you look for a senior care community to take care of your loved one with dementia, it is important to consider their progressive health needs. At Silverado Senior Living Austin, our associates
are specially trained in memory care techniques and our around-the-clock licensed nurses are there to provide expert care that addresses individual needs.
Our specialty memory-care community in Austin has a board-certified physician as Medical Director to help address the complex health conditions of each resident.
Often time, the progression of dementia can make it difficult for residents to
express concerns or problematic symptoms. Silverado nurses are skilled in providing comprehensive assessments and because they are on-site 24 hours a day, there is no delay in contacting physicians and families when there is a change of condition.
- Registered Nurse - full-time, on-site as Director of Health Services
- Licensed Nurses - full-time, on-site, every shift, seven days/week
Individualized Care Plans
An individualized Nursing Care Plan is developed for every resident at the time of initial
move-in and updated frequently. The Care Plan is comprehensive and includes consideration of specific health conditions, family requests and personal needs.
Response to an Acute Illness
With 24 hour nursing on-site, a resident will get prompt attention if there is an acute illness. Common infections in the elderly such as urine or respiratory infections are assessed early, treatment can be started promptly and serious health crises are often avoided. In turn, this
approach helps reduce the unnecessary and often traumatic relocation to a hospital or multiple care settings.
Silverado Senior Living Austin has developed its own specialized program of Restorative Care. Caregivers and nurses receive special training in how to enable our dementia residents to preserve their abilities to remain mobile, self-feed and remain independent for as long as possible. Silverado's Restorative Aides also assist residents who have physically declined or suffered a fall, to regain their abilities and remain as active as possible.
Silverado Restorative Care is a therapeutic approach designed to maintain and enhance our residents’ physical abilities and, in turn, their quality of life. Specifically developed for individuals affected by memory loss, Restorative Care helps reduce the onset of
physical conditions such as mobility loss and muscle decline.
At various Silverado communities, the benefits of this program have included:
- Improved mobility and range of motion
- Reduction in falls and fractures
- Appropriate reduction of medications
- Decreased anxiety and improved demeanor
A Special Focus on the Family at Silverado Senior Living Austin
Family support is crucial in the world of dementia care. It is a difficult disease, but we are here to support and empower you through the process. A full-time Master's degree-level Social Worker is
onsite to help provide education on a variety of issues, from family discussions to life planning for the future. Monthly Family Support Groups are available to the public, and include onsite care during the meeting at no charge. Additionally, our frequent Family Night outings offer family caregivers a much-needed night of their own.
