If you or an aging loved one are looking at assisted living facilities, Martin Boyd Christian Home offers exceptional care and accommodations. Director of Admissions Brooke Steele shared that the group is always ready and willing to meet families where they are at and help clients make the best possible decision when it comes to looking into assisted care.
"For one monthly fee, our residents receive three meals a day, all laundry, all housekeeping, overseeing and administering all medications and assistance with daily living needs such as bathing and dressing," Steele shared. "We usually have activities seven days a week that include anything from lunch outings, to bingo and crafts and church services."
Resident rooms are spacious and offer a living area, bedroom with closet space, and bathroom with a linen closet. Residents can have plenty comfort while also getting the care they need. Amenities are vast as well including maintenance, all utilities (except cable and phone, but hookups are available), beauty and barber shop, an area for family functions, and beautifully landscaped courtyards with sidewalks for strolling and benches for seating.
Events are in no short supply either ranging from shopping trips and lunch outings to wellness checks and gardening.
"You can view our monthly calendar online anytime and see that we all stay busy and have a lot of fun," Steele said.
Steele also stressed something that residents have all their needs met, and their family can rest assured knowing that nothing is getting overlooked or added on.
"Our fees are designed so that people can budget appropriately, and we truly do not have any additional fees for care," she said.
When families are ready to call Martin Boyd home, there's a simple list of what they need to bring versus what they do not. On the "bring list" are enough clothes for seven days and at least three sets of linens (towels, washcloths, sheets, etc.), a small first aid kit, curtains if desired, and a shower curtain and hooks.
What future residents need not worry themselves with are: any small household appliances, electric blankets, tools, or excessive furniture.
"When people contact me I usually like for them to give me a brief description of their situation and then I tell them how we can help with their specific needs," Steele said. "I can always just give general information, rates, and services, but seeing as how this is a very personal decision, I like to be very case specific in my conversations."
Steele said from that point, they can schedule a tour for the family and potential resident and she can answer any questions that they may have as well as go over rates and next steps in the process at that time without any obligation.
"We just want everyone to feel welcome and as at ease as possible as they settle in," she added.
