The senior population is the fastest growing population in the U.S. Living longer, healthier lives brings tremendous social and economic responsibility; as well as opportunity. Are we ready to care for this population in a way that they deserve?
More senior living communities are just beginning to go to greater lengths to serve the needs of those from multicultural backgrounds finding creative ways to customize offerings to ensure seniors from different ethnic and lifestyle backgrounds feel right at home. Touching Lives Communities is elevating this concept to a cutting-edge level. The residents experience the highest quality of health care possible with integrity, respect to and understanding of the communities’ culture.
Each Touching Lives Community is designed around a specific culture in design, food offerings, social interaction, and more. Of course, our homes are open to vulnerable seniors from any cultural background. The primary purpose of a Touching Lives Community is to provide a community where loved ones can feel like they are truly at home by participating in activities that are familiar to them in a comfortable surrounding with staff who understands their culture. Our staff is committed to providing exceptional health care with programs and services that are culturally sensitive.
Our Touching Lives Community residents will benefit by living in a superior care facility enriched by familiar cultural comforts. The families and loved-ones will experience respite and tremendous peace-of-mind knowing that their senior’s health, happiness and safety are the highest priorities at a Touching Lives Community.
Examples of Touching Lives Community cultures:
- Japanese A Touching Lives Community may have Japanese designed gardens on the grounds with a coi pond. Japanese traditions in dining service and menu items will be offered to residents. Celebrations and ceremonies such as the Obon Festival to celebrate longevity and show respect for the elderly will be held. Interior décor will honor Japanese design traditions.
- Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) Many have struggled to live openly with their sexuality, and the LGBT population is unfortunately less likely to have strong family connections and relatives to help care for them as they are aging. They are two and a half more times likely to be living unsafely alone. Because institutionalized homophobia, cultural discrimination, and harassment exists, they are fearful to enter housing services or when they do, have stressful and demeaning experience. Imagine what a difference a Touching Lives Community can make for the LGBT population!
All Touching Lives Community residents can live a full life with the highest quality health care services in an environment where they can maintain their identity and feel more at home.
It’s what we mean when we promise to deliver
Quality Care with Cultural Comfort.
