About Points West Living Red Deer
Points West Living Red Deer
Our newest community offers 25 full suites for Independent Supportive Living (ISL), 45 suites for Designated Supportive Living (DSL), and 69 suites for Designated Supportive Living with Memory Care, for a total of 139 suites.
Independent Supportive Living is designed for adults and seniors who can benefit from some support services, but are able to continue a relatively independent lifestyle. These suites include a full kitchen and built in washer/dryer, and a storage cage on the same floor. Some include balconies. Rent includes one nutritious freshly cooked meal per day, weekly light housekeeping services, daily wellness checks, and an open invitation to join all of the recreational activities.
The Designated Supportive Living program is offered in partnership with Alberta Health Services. Eligibility is determined through an assessment process by AHS. Then the resident can choose to move to Points West Living where the supports identified in the assessment are provided. These suites are built in a cottage style configuration, with 12 to 14 suites grouped together, and a common dining and living room, so that a smaller community of residents and their staff care partners can build supportive relationships. Suites include a kitchenette, as all meals and snacks are provided in the cottage kitchen. Weekly light housekeeping, wellness checks, and plenty of recreational opportunities are also provided.
The DSL program with Memory Care offers the same services as above, in a secure cottage that accepts and supports the unique challenges of residents living with changed abilities.
Overall, Supportive Living at Points West Living offers services in a private, yet congregate living setting. It is a non-institutional alternative for those who are no longer wishing to or able to live without supports. We focus on health promotion, well-being, independence and maintaining functional abilities. We practice the Eden Alternative Philosophy, an approach that puts the person first. Person directed care is structured around the unique needs, preferences, and desires of the individual benefiting from care. Decisions and actions around care honor the voices and choices of care recipients and those working most closely with them. Core person-directed values include choice, dignity, respect, self-determination and purposeful living. The Eden Alternative promotes these values using a set of principles and training strategies designed to de-institutionalize and transform the culture of care wherever Elders live. The Eden Alternative Philosophy empowers Elders and their care partners to alleviate loneliness, helplessness and boredom for everyone.
The Points West Living Red Deer community is specifically designed with common areas and features that allow individuals to “age in community”. It provides various housing options and levels of services, which are designed to respond to the individual needs of those who require assistance with certain activities of daily living, but do not require the 24 hour registered nursing care provided in a continuing care center.
