The coveted Award of Excellence attests that The Meadows Health Care Center meets or exceeds the expectation of providing excellent care for its patients and residents.
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) January 29, 2010 -- The Meadows Health Care Center, a privately owned facility in Forest Park, has received the Award of Excellence once again. The annual award will be presented by the Ohio Academy of Nursing Homes on February 2 at 11 a.m. They have received this award only after meeting or exceeding stringent nursing home requirements. The mission of The Meadows Health Care Center, which provides services for short-term rehabilitation, long-term rehabilitation and permanent resident care, is that the residents always come first.
“Smile at the residents when you walk by them,” says Gretchen Aichele, Director of Marketing for the center. “Just letting them know that someone recognizes them, their needs and cares for them really goes a long way in the emotional well-being of our residents. Their care is our number one concern here.”
But in reality, a lot more goes on at The Meadows Health Care Center than just physical care. They have a large Day Room where residents can go to hang-out and visit with other patients or their family members. They have a monthly Family Night, where all extended family members are invited to come; they have a monthly newsletter featuring their residents and employees; and they have visiting entertainment, Bingo or other games daily and religious services weekly. The Meadows believe that healing is a whole-body experience.
The Award of Excellence is presented to the Health Care Facilities and Nursing Homes in Ohio by the Ohio Academy of Nursing Homes, a 47-year old association which helps nursing homes reach the pinnacle of care for all residents. There are more than 200 nursing homes and rehabilitation centers that are part of that organization. The Meadows is also active in providing representation to legislative bodies concerning the residents, membership and to all of the elderly and infirmed in our State.
The Meadows Health Care Center has an aggressive plan to reach out the community and later this year will be hosting a number of events to let people learn about their center and the excellent care they provide. As our population continues to age, many adult children are searching for elder care for their parents and grandparents. The Meadows Health Care Center has services, excellent facilities and a comprehensive program of health and wellness for their residents.
To attend the Award Ceremony or for detailed information, contact Gretchen Aichele at 513-851-8400 The Meadows Health Care Center is one of three facilities in the Cincinnati area owned by Karen Jamison-Brothers. It is located at 11760 Pellston Court, Forest Park.
