As with all levels in our continuum of care, our licensed nursing staff works in concert with residents and their families, as well as the rest of our team, to ensure each individual’s needs are met and that services are adjusted as those needs change. In addition, if you are admitted for a respite stay, recuperative care or short stay rehabilitation, our discharge planning support will help to ensure that everything is ready for your return home.

We are pleased to be one of the first in our area to utilize Point of Care and the Millennium Pharmacy System.

Point of Care is a real-time computerized resident information system that enables licensed nursing staff as well as nursing assistants to access resident care needs and assignment information. This allows them to complete documentation at the time the observation and care occur. Armed with laptops and using a simple point-and-click interface, users can document with accuracy and speed. Security allows users profile-based access to specific information and documentation, which helps to ensure security of personal health information. Nursing assistants are now “charting as they go” instead of waiting until the end of their shifts and trying to remember what happened throughout the day. It also enables the charge nurse to monitor resident care from any computer.

The Millennium Pharmacy System is also  a computerized system designed to deliver significant benefits to the long term care industry, including increased nursing efficiency and enhanced resident safety.

When you have a few minutes, take time to ask one of the nursing staff about both Point of Care and Millennium.

Ware Presbyterian Village is also the first to offer the clinically proven cognitive training program Posit Science.

Posit Science cognitive training programs take a different approach to brain fitness by targeting important roots of memory and thinking – the ability of the brain to absorb information from the senses.  We do this because the quality with which your brain sees and hears has a direct relationship with how quickly you think, how much information you take in, and how well you remember.

These computer-based programs are easy to use, effective and enjoyable.  Improving brain health relies on substantial and precise practice.  A tool that can deliver stimuli accurately, track performance gains and adjust task difficulties in accordance with each person’s progress is key to efficient training.

Numerous studies have shown that people who use Posit Science programs experience significant improvements in cognitive abilities.  Results from some of these studies have been published in prestigious scientific journals, including Progress in Brain Research and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
