Licensed Nurse Service
A licensed nurse is on staff from 7:00 AM - 4:00 PM Monday-Friday to offer care for our residents. The nurse is also on call 24 hours a day for emergencies.
Residential Care Aide (RCA) Service
Fair Oaks residents are offered Residential Care Aide (RCA) services in their private one or two-room suites. This allows for greater independence while also providing the care the resident may need for their daily tasks of living. Families will have a greater peace of mind knowing their loved ones are being given the care they need in a private setting.
Each resident will have a Resident Assessment Support Plan (RASP) created by our residential care services staff members in conjunction with the resident and their family members. RCAs provide care for the residents throughout the day, including escort service, assistance with bathing, personal grooming, dressing, and bed making. RCAs also prepare laundry for pickup, empty trash, and provide light housekeeping.
Medication Distribution Service
A trained professional (med-tech) will order, chart, pour, and distribute all medications. The med-tech works directly with the doctor and pharmacists acting on behalf of the resident receiving the service. Fair Oaks of Pittsburgh's preferred provider is Johnson’s Pharmaceutical Services.
Located on the lower level of the living facility, Fair Oaks leases space to Fox Rehab Services to provide on-site rehab for speech, physical, and occupational therapy.
To provide our residents with a true independent senior living experience, transportation is provided by Fair Oaks of Pittsburgh through ACCESS, a coordinated, shared-ride paratransit service, for all residents at no additional cost. Health Services can provide an aide to escort residents to appointments for a fee.
