“Each time I walk through a resident’s door, I am uplifted by the smiling face that greets me. I feel so lucky to be able to provide them with what they need. When I am at work, I am able to forget about the stress of everyday life, and just concentrate on the love the residents have for me and I have for them in return.”
Located in West Ellicott, New York, Orchard Grove Residences are part of the Senior Living Community at The Woodlands. This new “small-house” model Assisted Living Program has been made available by a $5 million grant award as part of the Healthcare Efficiency and Affordability Law for New Yorkers (HEAL NY).
The Orchard Grove Residences are certified and licensed by the New York State Department of Health as Assisted Living Program Residences (ALP). The Orchard Grove Residences are made up of three “small-house” model households.
Each household contains twelve private rooms with a private bath and shower with “family-style” kitchen, living and dining room where seniors can congregate as they would in their own homes. Additionally seniors have access to outdoor recreational areas, perfect for enjoying the warmth of spring and summer. Home Healthcare Aides (HHA’s) assist seniors with care as well as cooking, cleaning and promoting daily activities and involvement in typical household chores.
The goal of this initiative is to offer current and future seniors the ability to age in place, bridging the gap that often divides assisted living and skilled nursing levels of care. Seniors will be able to reside longer in this “small-house” model program than in traditional assisted living facilities.
Research done by the Commonwealth Fund on “small-house” model facilities currently in operation throughout the country, states that "small-house model residents reported significantly higher satisfaction with their facility as a place to live than did residents of traditional nursing homes. In terms of care and health outcomes, small-house model residents reported significantly higher scores on emotional well-being indicators; small-house model residents also experienced lower rates of depression and were more active and had fewer declines in functional ability."
The Orchard Grove Residences are an innovative form of long-term care for seniors. These three small-house models will be the first of their kind in Chautauqua County.
