What is a Certified Medication Technician and how is that safe for mom’s medication regime?

A: Certified Medication Technicians (CMTs)are trained and certified under the Maryland State Board of Nursing. Certified Medication Technicians were designed to alleviate the time consuming med-pass, allowing time for our nurses to clinically and personally manage their residents. Certified Medication Technicians along with our nurses are held accountable for the safe handling and administration of medications.

Q: We want to use our family pharmacist.  Is that possible?

A: It is recommended that you partner with our contract pharmacy however, you may opt to use your current provider. Lon-Term Care communities typically contract with an institutional pharmacy that provides a geriatric pharmacist to monitor medications. The pharmacy also prepares medications in bubble cassettes to ensure safety and precise management. If you choose your own pharmacist, please be aware that there is a charge for repackaging.

Q: Is there a doctor that visits onsite?

A: Yes, and many other specialized ophysicians do house calls also! Kris-Leigh Assisted Livings contracts with a Physician who is responsible for the primary care of the resident. He also will refer residents to other specialties as the need arises.

Back to Questions

 

Q: My mother is a picky eater. Do you offer a variety of menu items?

A: Our chefs work hard to plan and prepare a variety of options to satisfy many palates! You won’t find spaghetti on the menu too often. We pride ourselves on a wide selection of pleasing entrees. Meals are served restaurant style, you order… we serve!

Back to Questions

 
I heard there isn’t enough staff in Assisted Living, is that true?

A: Our resident to staff ratio mirrors the state and federal guidelines. Licensed Assisted Livings are mandated to have a ratio that supports the number of residents we have in the community.

Back to Questions

 
Mom needs therapy, does she need Skilled Nursing?

A: Residents can opt to have therapists on-site to cover therapy needs. Most of our residents have therapy from time to time. As long as the doctor orders it, therapy can be provided on-site without having to leave home. We even have a therapy pool and an exercise room to utilize.

Q: Dad doesn’t want to move and now he’s pretty upset with us. We told him we’d never put him in a nursing home. What now?

A: We can ease your burden…that’s our primary function! Kris-Leigh was founded by a couple that had your exact issue, wanting the best care but knowing how hard it was to make that move. We recognize your tremendous feelings of guilt and pressure. One way to minimize the transition is to have your dad stay with us temporarily, a Respite stay. This can ease his stress and help solve the situation.
