PROFESSIONAL STAFF

Our caring, professional staff is always focused on the health and wellness of our residents. They spend their days close to the residents providing personal care, taking walks, reading, listening, and creating friendships based on genuine love and concern. Our consistent 24 hour staffing with 12.5 hour shifts provides our residents with a continuity of care throughout the day with minimal shift changes. Each home is staffed with two caregivers from 7am until 7:30pm and one caregiver from 7:00pm until 7:30am. With only 14 – 18 residents in each home, we’re able to give personalized attention to our residents, know their favorite foods and activities, and know their individual preferences for meeting their care needs.

SECURE MEMORY CARE

We integrate assisted living and memory care in all three of our secure homes. We have found that many people with mild to moderate dementia thrive in a community with residents of varying cognitive and physical needs. By offering a beautiful home-like environment with consistent and familiar caregivers, we are able to provide a warmer, more comfortable atmosphere than many of the large institutional “Alzheimer’s/Memory Care” facilities.

HEALTH

Assisted Living residents and their families receive clinical oversightWe offer residents and their families a level of clinical oversight not typically found in the assisted living home industry. We work closely with each resident’s physicians, family, and our caregivers to achieve optimum health and comfort for our residents. Central to our exceptional clinical program is our Health Director, whose focus is exclusive to the medical needs of each resident. Our Health Director makes daily rounds to keep a close eye on the current and potential health concerns. In addition, a member of our director team is available 24 hours a day to address immediate after hours concerns.

We understand that multiple physicians and family members may be involved in the clinical care of our residents. For this reason, we go out of our way to communicate regularly with the entire care team to not only ensure the best care for the resident, but to ensure that the resident and family are informed and confident in the services being provided.

WELLNESS

Assisted Living in Tucson by Via Elegante specializes in nurturing residents wellmessWe specialize in nurturing the individual wellness needs of each resident. For some, wellness means discovering the artist within and practicing yoga. For others, it means gardening, poetry, or spending quality time with someone who genuinely cares about them. Our Community Director focuses on the wellness of our residents, their families, and our caregivers. We coordinate meaningful activities for the residents and work closely with our families to ensure they are happy with the care their family member is receiving. In addition, we provide continuing education for our caregivers to encourage ongoing professional development. At Via Elegante, we know that enhancing our residents’ lives requires more than the promise of a “premier” lifestyle. It requires special effort on the part of everyone in the home to create those moments that warm the heart and engage the imagination.
