The social services staff at Rock River Gardens continually monitors the psychological well being of each resident, and is there to help with coordination of services within the community, assistance with issues within the nursing home, and individual counseling sessions when needed. The social services department prepares care plans that address all of the resident’s behavioral goals and these goals are then monitored and tracked for progress.
Residents have access to a variety of activities that are supported by our in-house activities staff. These activities are designed to provide residents with the opportunity to utilize the interpersonal skills that are developed in therapeutic groups, including:
- Outings to area parks & attractions
- Activities designed to maintain fine and gross motor skills
- Seasonal decorations & celebrations
We strive to incorporate family goals and desires in our resident’s treatment plans. We promote family involvement, and encourage family visitation and outings. Our nursing staff will prepare medication kits for residents that go out on pass with their families for extended periods.
Residents that demonstrate the ability to operate safely in the community can obtain passes to leave the facility on their own to pursue individual goals.
