WHAT IS PERSONAL CARE?
“Personal Care” facilities provide care for people who need assistance with certain activities of their daily lives. Dressing, bathing, meal preparation, and management of personal medication are the types of activities with which Marian Hall residents often need help. Typically, residents at personal care facilities such as Marian Hall have a degree of independence and the ability to perform much of their own care. For any number of reasons, they are unable or unwilling to live alone, and require some help or supervision with their care or safety needs. The people of Marian Hall are dedicated to respectful caring and to meeting the needs of such individuals. Personal care is less intensive than that which would be found at facilities such as nursing homes or hospitals. If a resident at Marian Hall requires more intensive care than we are licensed or equipped to provide, we will help him or her move to an appropriate facility.
Socialization and interaction with other people are important to everyone's enjoyment of life. Being able to engage in activities that a person enjoys contributes to his or her quality of life.
At Marian Hall, we offer a diverse menu of daily activities intended to nurture residents’ physical, mental, and spiritual health. Our staff, residents’ family members, volunteers, community organizations, and other residents all play an active role in enhancing an individual's daily life at Marian Hall through involvement in activities such as physical exercise, Bible study, Tai-Chi, Catholic Mass, crafts, current events discussions, book club, Bingo, sing-alongs, and performances by entertainment groups.
Residents participate or not, according to their own likes and dislikes. In fact, Marian Hall residents find that daily interactions and discussions with their peers — at meals, in our lounges, on our grounds — are great sources of satisfaction and socialization.
Marian Hall Home was founded in the tradition of the School Sisters of St. Francis, a community of Catholic religious Sisters. The spiritual life of residents at Marian Hall is an important part of our ministry to their holistic needs — in body, mind and spirit. We are committed to providing excellence in pastoral care — the opportunity for worship, prayer, emotional support, spiritual growth and faith development, regardless of religious affiliation.
Marian Hall is fortunate to have a beautiful chapel on site. Mass is celebrated there daily, and it is open for private prayer at any time.
Other devotions, such as the praying of the rosary and Bible study, offer residents the opportunity to nurture their spiritual life, if they so choose. Visits from residents’ own clergy, of any faith, are welcomed and encouraged. And shuttle bus service is available for residents with close connections to local area churches.
