Austin North Assisted Living is representative of a new type of geriatric care model. Our facility is a blend of both an assisted living home and a personal care home. From the assisted living model, you will find that the home is licensed by DADS (Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services). Not only does obtain a license reflect quality care, but assures you that if your loved one has a long term care policy, or is eligible to receive benefits from Veterans Administration Aid and Attendance program, you can expect reimbursement.
Our unique license number gives our families a means to compare our facility to other licensed homes. The stringent licensing format assures our families that the highest Happy Easter, from Austin North Assisted Living!standards have been met, and are continuing to be exceeded by our home. As with other assisted living homes, Austin North attendants are there to help our residents with all phases of daily living chores. As our residents decline, we happily add more services to the personalized service plan, such as special meal prep, total assistance with toileting and showering, and assistance to and from bed or reclining chair.
From the personal care model, we have absorbed the concept of placing the facility in an enlarged and renovated house. This home model affords our residents the familiarity of environment; all of our residents grew up in similar type homes, so the move from private home to personal care home is not a drastic one. This allows an easier transition to our group home. Our census tops out at 14, so there is never a worry of the resident to attendant ratio getting out of hand, with a subsequent decline in quality of care.
