Personal Care

Supportive Services for Residents in Apartments: Enhancing Independence and Dignity

Unlike any other retirement community in Lancaster County or its surrounding areas, at Homestead Village, we’re licensed to provide residents with personal senior care services for short or long-term periods right in their apartments through the Supportive Services program.

This unique program allows residents to thrive where they are and not have to relocate or downsize to another part of campus if they need personal care. These senior living options also mean that couples can stay together in their apartment, even if only one person requires care.

Services include:

•    Three meals daily in our dining room
•    Bed making/linen changes
•    Weekly housekeeping

And one or more of the following services:

•    Wheelchair transports
•    Light daily housekeeping
•    Medication management
•    Laundry
•    Hygiene assistance
•    Continence management reminders
•    Appointment scheduling
•    Shopping
•    Periodic checking—seven days a week through the 24-hour period
•    Health management

Because support needs vary from person to person, we design an individualized support plan for each participant, with input from the resident, family, and staff. As the resident’s needs change, we revise the support plan in consultation with an interdisciplinary team. If the resident regains independence and can complete daily living activities, we’ll discontinue the support plan once the minimum contract period is complete.

Skilled Nursing

The Apostles Center for Care at Homestead Village has provided quality, skilled nursing care in the Lancaster, Pennsylvania, community since 1986. The professional staff offers comprehensive medical services, nursing and rehabilitation and restorative senior care programs. An interdisciplinary care team provides continual assessments of individual needs for a smooth transition from skilled nursing center care to home.

The Household Approach

The 60-bed Apostles Center is made up of three households, each accommodating 15 to 22 residents. Our households differ from a traditional nursing home or senior care facility in a number of ways:

•    Household staff members work together as a team to meet the needs of residents.
•    Each household team is charged with working together efficiently, with a high degree of trust to provide the highest-quality, most home-like senior Team members are trained to work through communication and conflict issues.
•    Household staff members work in blended roles and assist with housekeeping, laundry, and dining service. The team is not solely responsible for these tasks but works cooperatively with these service areas in order to provide the best possible service and resident-centered care.
•    Each household features a lounge where residents and visitors gather, senior living group activities take place, care planning meetings are held, and household staff performs duties, such as nursing and rehabilitation documentation and shift-to-shift reporting.
•    One household is specifically dedicated to residents in need of secure Memory Support.
