Tell me a little about the facility.
Mimi’s Care Home opened in June 2018. We are licensed for 10 residents and our license includes a dementia endorsement allowing us to admit and care for those with a dementia diagnosis.
What kind of experience/training does your staff possess?
We have been in the industry since 2009. Our staff training complies with all the NV state regulations: CPR, first aid training, caregiving training, medication management training, and Alzheimer’s/dementia training. We prioritize compassionate care for our residents and carefully screen caregivers for that quality.
Do you do an initial assessment before admission? Can you tell us a summary?
We evaluate prospective residents based on their ability to perform activities of daily living (ADLs). How much assistance they need in each of the 6 ADL areas determines the level of care the resident needs. That becomes part of the decision as to whether the resident is suitable for our facility and also one factor in determining the cost of our services.
Tell me a little about your current residents.
We typically have a variety of residents. Some are more capable and ambulatory and others are in need of a lot of assistance. We provide a wide range of activities for the residents according to their capabilities. Things like: puzzles, card games, gardening, walking outside, exercises, and much more. We bring in therapy dogs now and then and the residents love them. We have a neighbor that is a member of a barbershop quartet and they come in sometimes to sing for the residents. We also are fortunate to have several volunteers coming by occasionally to sing, play music, read to the residents, etc.
Do you have any outdoor space for the residents?
Our facility is located on a ½ acre lot so we have plenty of outdoor space. There is a large covered patio in the back with seating looking out on a variety of colorful vegetation. Also in the backyard is a gardening area and a 6 feet wide sidewalk loop for walking/exercise.
What is your discharge policy?
We have a 30-day notice discharge policy. But we are flexible. For example, if someone is relocating out of state and it’s short notice we accommodate that.
What happens when the needs of a resident change?
When a resident needs change, the care plan for the resident changes. We periodically review the resident’s needs in the area of their ADLs. We change the care plan according to the resident’s needs.
What are the visiting hours? Are there any restrictions?
Our standard visiting hours are from 10am to 6pm. However, we are flexible with that, we make accommodations for families who aren’t able to visit during that time. Given our current climate with the pandemic, we have restrictions as recommended by the state and the Center for Disease, Control (CDC). We have a tablet that is available and is set up for FaceTime visits for families.
Tell me about the food.
We don’t follow a strict menu. We have a menu posted but it’s flexible in that we accommodate based on resident needs, special diets, and preferences for their meals. We tailor the meals to each resident. We realize how important good nutrition and pleasing meals are to resident well-being.
What time do you serve the food? What about snacks?
Breakfast is served between 7am-8:30am, Lunch is around 12 and Dinner is around 5 pm. The residents can have snacks anytime they want. If someone wants a sandwich at 2am we provide that. This is something that is part of what we call Resident Centered Care. They don’t have to adapt to our times and menu but rather we adapt to their needs and preferences.
Where may I find the state inspection report, for my review?
It is posted on the wall to the right as you walk through the front door,
What about the privacy for the resident?
We will make sure that residents know of any activities going on and encourage them to participate, but if they want to stay in their room we are okay with that. There is no coercion involved in terms of engaging in activities or following any strict guidelines.
How is the medication ordered and replenished? Does the facility handle this or does the family assist with this?
The family coordinates meds and they usually set up a delivery service so that they get delivered directly to our facility. The family typically sets that up with whatever pharmacy they are using.
What is the monthly cost?
Our monthly fees start at $3,500. Individual resident fees are set based on the type of room chosen (shared, private w/shared bath, private w/private bath) and level of care needed.
What are your billing policies and payment policies?
Rental contracts are a month to month tenancy. There currently is no application fee or security deposit required. The agreed-upon monthly fee is paid upon admission. Subsequent monthly rental fees are due on the same date each month.
Are all the services included in the monthly fee? If not, what and how much are the additional services?
Monthly rental fees are all-inclusive except for incontinence supplies and medication which are to be provided by the resident or family members.
