Easing our pain at such a difficult time
My Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's over 7 years ago. My Dad is 93, she is 90; they have been married for 69 years. Thanks to my amazing siblings, we were able to keep Mom at home until recently. While it remains extremely sad to all of us that Dad isn't able to be with the woman he loves more than life itself all the time, the staff at Eventide does such a good job caring for, and taking care of our beloved mother. They are truly gentle and kind with her, not just "doing a job". I don't know how to put into words how comforting it is to see how well they are taking care of my precious Mom... It's not the prettiest facility, but there's NOTHING more important than the quality of care our loved ones receive.
Eventide Lutheran Home is dually licensed by the State of Iowa for Medicaid and Medicare and consists of the following levels of care:
Short Term Rehabilitation and Long Term Care
Eventide offers skilled nursing residences for seniors who have more complex care and assistance requirements. Skilled nursing is available for those in need of medical, rehabilitative and restorative care as well as those who require long-term care. The Rehab Department at Eventide has been well recognized by area physicians for their outstanding performance and attention given to those utilizing the program. Our goal is to return residents to their optimum level of function and open the door to a better quality of life. We have 40 private resident rooms to ensure privacy and comfort during a residents stay.
Hospice Care provides comfort, nursing care and other services to people who are have a life limiting illness and have the consent of their physician or have decided to receive comfort care rather than a cure. Eventide staff works closely together with a Hospice Provider and the personal physician to put each resident’s physical and emotional well-being first while maintaining peace, comfort and dignity. A closely monitored environment paired with the support of our caring professionals ensures each resident receives all the medical and emotional attention and care he or she needs and deserves. In addition, families may receive grief counseling during and after care is received.
Eventide has a special memory care neighborhood for residents who have been diagnosed with some form of dementia. We take pride in providing a safe, carefully structured social environment designed to enable those with Alzheimer’s or other forms of memory loss to enjoy quality of life.
The staff members working in this area have completed a special orientation and education program specifically for memory care. Providing continuity among our caregivers is essential to the success of our program and the same employees are regularly scheduled to work in this area. Through love and laughter, we are able to join daily journeys.
