Northern Facilities, a group of nursing home therapy and rehab centers in NY available online at http://www.NorthernServicesGroup.com, is promoting its three retirement communities: FountainView at College Road, The Springs at FountainView, and Northern Riverview.
“We currently have several retirement communities to our name, all operating under the mantra that seniors should be able to maintain aspects, specifically a degree of independence, of their previous lifestyles. We don’t pretend that their lives will be able to stay exactly the same, but there’s no reason they have to feel they can no longer do anything for themselves once they move to an assisted living center,” said Jeremy Strauss, Executive Director of Centers for Specialty Care Group, consultants for Northern Facilities New York rehab centers and assisted living facilities.
FountainView at College Road (http://www.FountainView.org) in Monsey, New York, the sole independent retirement community, features a number of spacious apartments, a main dining area, and a private dining room for special occasions.
By way of recreational activities, residents can enjoy visiting a beauty parlor and barber shop, walking paths with exercise stations, a putting green, a library, a webcam-capable computer center, a shuffleboard court, and activity rooms for cards and board games.
On the same premises is assisted retirement center The Springs at FountainView (http://www.FountainView.org/wellness/springs), where residents can choose from one of six different care levels, including scheduled assistance with bathing, dressing, and grooming several times a week or daily, as well as daily assistance with meals, bathroom trips, and medication management.
Northern Riverview (http://www.NorthernServicesGroup.com/our_facilities/northern_riverview_assisted_living/), Northern Facilities’ other assisted retirement center, is located in Haverstraw, N.Y., and offers social, personal, and medical assistance that allows residents to still maintain their independence. Short term rehab services and respite care are also available at Northern Riverview.
Safety is of utmost importance at each of the Rockland County nursing homes and assisted living facilities; the FountainView centers both boast 24/7 security, while Riverview offers 24/7 supervision. Family and friends are encouraged to visit their loved ones as well; the FountainView premises offer a plethora of on-site parking, as well as guest apartments for visitors.
“We know how important a certain level of independence is to our seniors, which is why we strive to maintain as much of a balance between assistance and autonomy. The Springs, where we offer multiple levels of assistance, is ideal for someone who needs help here and there, just not all the time,” said Strauss.
