At Manchester Manor, we respect and honor each individual in our care. We understand that everyone is at a different place on their journey and that each person deserves care that meets his or her specific needs.
We believe each resident deserves the highest level of personalized services and a care plan developed just for him or her. Most importantly, we put our residents at the center of care – everything we do revolves around them.
Interdisciplinary Team Conference
Manchester Manor uses a team approach in assessing and caring for our residents. This team approach is cultivated through the care planning process. The care planning team consists of:
- The family and resident
- Registered Nurses
- Certified Nursing Assistants
- Nursing Supervisor
- Social Worker
- Rehab Staff (if appropriate)
By working as a team, we gather the medical and social history to help understand where the resident is currently in his or her life process. A synopsis of the resident’s current status, concerns and goals are all addressed during these meetings. To ensure that the most appropriate care is delivered, we reassess our residents and their needs on a regular basis.
Nutrition & Dining
Manchester Manor has Registered Dietitians on staff that work with the other members of the interdisciplinary team to help enhance the nutritional care of each patient. The role of the dietitian includes the completion of a nutritional assessment and development of a plan of care that best suits the resident’s individual needs. This includes nutrition education for the resident and their family, monitoring appetite and weight changes, providing nutritional intervention for those with wounds and participating in resident care plan meetings.
