Patient-centered care focused on life enrichment.
Quality of life is a foremost concern in healthcare broadly and, more specifically, in the care of seniors. At Gulf Coast Health Care, it is a primary focus and commitment of our residential centers, and our goal for our patients each and every day. In fact, our team takes a creative approach to life enrichment, continuously adopting, adapting and implementing activities and opportunities to elevate life for each person in our care.
At Gulf Coast Health Care’s residential centers, we offer a fully comprehensive life enrichment program that touches on all five dimensions of wellness:
Promoting comfort, health and independence by transforming dining.
Our team is continuously developing and implementing life enrichment activities with a creative approach. One key way we do this is by transforming the dining experience.
We allow residents to choose when they eat and how they’re served, which promotes independence. Our centers have created a restaurant-like atmosphere in which residents can select from a menu or make their meal choices buffet-style. They can even choose cook-to-order room service dining. At the same time, our centers have hired chefs and culinary staff to provide home-style meals made with fresh ingredients, and customize them to residents’ preferences.
Keeping seniors engaged through diverse activities and outings.
Social activity and community engagement are important to the well-being and quality of life for seniors. At Gulf Coast Health Care, we encourage our patients to stay engaged with others and involved in their communities. We help build patients’ confidence and promote social interaction with diverse activities tailored to each person’s individual interests, preferences and abilities. And all our activities are planned and hosted by certified recreational therapists and/or experienced activities professionals.
Here are just some of the activities we offer to elevate life for our residents:
