Medical treatment vs. Soul Care
Skilled Nursing is for those who need greater support with anything that a day may hold. Whether it’s getting dressed for the day or taking a soothing bath before bed, we are ready to meet every need. Before we detail all that this could mean for your loved one, it’s important that we first explain the difference between medical treatment and soul care. After all, this is a predominant piece of our culture as members of the Eden Alternative Registry that guides how we care for elders. You see, medical treatment is about helping someone recover from an illness while soul care is about meeting a greater need for identity, growth, autonomy, security, connectedness, meaning and joy. This is accomplished by banishing thieves like loneliness, helplessness and boredom and instead, embracing spontaneity, prioritizing companionship and finding ways to help the elder contribute towards the betterment of others. Our nurses and clinical teams are certainly experts in pain management and caring for the sick, but they also know that true wellness is about so much more. You can count on our teams to engage with your loved one in ways that will nurture their deepest needs whether in body, mind or spirit. You can count on our care coming from straight from the heart. It’s what we do, it’s soul care.
Five Star Service from a Five Star Community
With staff to elder ratio being the best in Bay Area, it’s no wonder The Crossings is rated a 5-Star community. When your loved one needs care, the average care community won’t do. You want the best you can find that offers genuine, from the heart care with excellent quality. You want top-tier and sincere. Skillful and heartfelt. Well, you’ve found it! The Crossings has been rated five stars (the highest possible rating) by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services which is based on staffing, health inspections and other quality measures. We deliver vigilant and unwavering support around-the-clock, administered by an exceptional team of licensed professionals, including RNs, LVNs, certified nurse aides and certified medication aides, each following the orders of a caring and qualified physician.
As in cities and towns all across Texas, there’s a legacy to the way the Methodist Retirement Communities has served elders since 1962. Whether you’re Methodist or not (and you don’t need to be), that legacy of true and selfless care is and will always be our promise. Consequently, The Crossings continues to stand out as the best of the best.
