Description of Ladies Home of Oswego
Welcome to the Ladies Home of Oswego...
The Ladies Home is committed to providing a quality of life that promotes activity, individuality and above all, safety and comfort. Our dedicated staff and loyal volunteers are devoted to our ladies gaining and maintaining a lifestyle of independence and optimal wellness.
Each accommodating room in the beautifully restored Victorian home is furnished to suit the individual’s personal tastes. Our around-the-clock care, well rounded meals and daily social activities also promote the healthiest and happiest of lifestyles.
We take pride in welcoming you and your loved one to our beautiful residence, the Ladies Home!
Where you will lead an active lifestyle…
Without the worries of preparing meals, remembering to take medication, doing laundry and cleaning the house, our ladies can relax and enjoy themselves. Families are free of worries; “Did Mom eat today? Did she remember her medication?” We find that three nutritious meals a day, medication taken correctly and caring staff available at all times, does wonders for a girl and reduces family stress!
We believe the more active you are, the healthier you are. Each resident is invited to join in all activities that include weekly outings (weather permitting). Our ladies are encouraged to be part of the Resident Council, a self-governing body with an appointed staff person who serves as an advocate. Residents make recommendations for change, custom fitting the program to suit themselves. Often the residents discuss the activity program and menus at these meetings. This is truly THEIR home and they have a say what happens here.
We are an Adult Home licensed and regulated by the Department of Health. The Administrator works directly with our Board of Directors and manages and maintains the Home ensuring all Department of Health and other regulations are met.
The people the resident will work closest with are the Resident Care Aides (RCA), Activity Coordinator and the Cooks. The RCA assists our ladies with personal care and assists with medication. They also make beds, change sheets, dust, vacuum and do the laundry. The Activity Coordinator handles Personal Allowance Accounts and organizes daily activities. Cooks prepare food according to RDA guidelines using dietician approved menus designed to provide optimal nutrition and lots of dessert! There is often other staff on board including a nurse, maintenance and housekeeper.
Our staff is devoted to providing comfort, individualized care, ensuring the wellbeing and safety of every lady, twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year.
We cannot forget to mention other very important people who wholeheartedly support our ladies- our volunteers! We have so many dedicated people whose hearts are huge and giving.
