Care Types: Nursing Care, Adult Day Care

The multistory building that houses Split Rock Nursing Home is shared by an adult day care and an adult day health care program. The property is located on a busy offshoot of Interstate 95. However, even with traffic flying past, the streets are safe for walking. A shopping center is located a few blocks away. The dark green rug in the lobby, coupled with the green tulle half-shading the sunlight from the windows, lends a botanical slant to the décor. The light and greenery is augmented by real plant life: ficuses infuse the air with a fresh scent. Furnishings throughout the facility are simple-looking but comfortable. Albeit a bit on the small side, residents’ rooms do not come across as cramped, thanks to direct light from a grouping of windows. The back of the facility serves as a makeshift patio, where the greenery is attended to with great vigor once winter unleashes its grip.

The facility is divided into three distinct units: one for residents on ventilators, one for residents who wish to lose weight and a third for those with dementia. During our visit, we toured one of the dining halls; there we observed residents very much immersed in the business of eating, rather than socializing with one another. In another dining area we saw a few residents in wheelchairs, who were receiving assistance with their meals, while others waited to be fed. Split Rock seemed a bit short-staffed in these efforts. Despite this fact, residents appeared comfortable in their surroundings&#8212and the staff treated them with respect. Specifically, we watched a nurse’s aide feeding two residents at once, with the patience and composure of a true professional. The dementia unit looks identical to the rest of the facility. The unit is subdivided according to residents’ level of dementia; those who have mild to moderate dementia are grouped apart from those in advanced stages. …. SHOW MORE
