Health & Wellness Services
At Revera, our residents are at the heart of everything we do. You have your own wants and needs. We take the time to learn about them from the person who knows them best – you.
Rather than making decisions for you, we’ll sit down and have a talk about your goals and how we can help you find the right resources to reach them, both now and in the future.
Personalized care and service
At Revera retirement residences, it really is all about you. What does living your life to the fullest mean to you, and how can we help? Which personal care services will help you to look and feel your best, and to walk through your days with comfort, dignity and confidence? What kind of care services and wellness activities will contribute to your overall health?
The answers to those questions are unique to you. You have your own preferences and needs, which is why flexible support is key – support for the physical, mental and social needs you have today, and those you may have down the road. We take the time to get to know you one on one, to better understand your lifestyle, to learn about the things that excite you, and to identify the things that may challenge you. Together, we’ll explore the outstanding personalized care and services available to you in your Revera retirement home. The choices are yours to make – we’re here to help.
Whether you need minimal assistance or personalized care, Revera offers a variety of retirement home services:
LiveWell™ Personalized Care Program
At many of Revera’s retirement homes in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario, our personalized care services are offered through the LiveWell™ program, an approach that’s all about making you feel your best, so you can keep being you. LiveWell™ is designed for flexibility, allowing for your services to evolve as your needs do. Thanks to the adaptable LiveWell™ care program structure – which is unique to Revera in the senior living sector – we are able to work with you to ensure you have the supports you need to continue to live as independently as possible.
Because your LiveWell™ care plan is so unique to you, so is the cost; you pay only for the services you use. No matter how small or great your needs are, talk to us today about how we can tailor the LiveWell™ program just for you.
Falls Prevention and Injury Reduction Program
Did you know that every year, one-in-three older Canadians experience a fall? And that falls are the leading cause of injury amongst older adults in Canada? Whether fall-related injuries are minor, like bumps or bruises, or more major, like hip or wrist fractures or even head trauma, they are also frequently associated with the loss of some degree of independence. Fortunately, falls are generally predictable, and preventing them from happening in the first place is the best defense.
That’s why fall prevention for seniors is an important issue for all of us. At our Revera retirement homes, our multi-disciplinary falls prevention and injury reduction program is designed to help you stay on your feet, so you can stay as healthy and independent as possible. We start with a thorough assessment to determine the unique fall prevention strategies that will benefit you most. Examples include physical programming to increase your strength and conditioning or recommending devices for safer mobility. Strategies could also include updates to the physical environment, such as lighting changes.
Whatever the falls prevention program we put in place together, keeping you injury-free and living life, your way is our shared goal.
Access to personal care services
You may be finding that some of the more personal activities you do every day – bathing, dressing, grooming – are a little bit more challenging these days. Or that you could use a hand getting to the dining room for meals or support in taking your medicines.
Our trained professionals and trusted partners are available in many of our retirement residences to provide discrete personal care services that respect your dignity and support your unique needs. Whatever your requirements are - from nutrition to mobility to getting ready for your day or anything else - talk to us about how we can help.
Access to nursing services
Many of our retirement homes offer a continuum of care services, allowing you to age in place as your needs change.
Where available, our team of registered staff members are there for daily support and services. Our trained professionals also assist with navigation through the healthcare system, communication with our in-house physicians where applicable and ongoing assessment of care needs. Please speak to your retirement residence of choice to find out more about what nursing services are available there.
Support in accessing community health services
For our residents in assisted living and memory care primarily, we work with local community health partners in each province to develop and implement your personalized plan of care. Our teams are equipped to connect with many different resources to help meet your care needs. Please speak with us to find out more about how Revera can help make the right connections in your area.
Medication Management Program
Taking medicine every day is a reality for many of us, especially as we get older. We’re here to help if you require assistance or reminders, coming right to your suite to make sure you have the privacy you need and deserve.
Revera retirement homes are partnered with our preferred pharmacy to offer a robust medication management program. The program offers education, training, resources and continuous quality checks to ensure that our program is safe and meets the needs of our residents.
It’s all about you.
